The dedicated and focused European Free From trading and networking event offers the opportunity to meet up with more than 320 exhibitors (producers, manufacturers and key global industry figures) and thousands of food products and brands from over 53 different countries, presenting the latest product innovations covering allergy free, functional, replacements and nutritional benefits.

Free From food, increasingly in demand

“Awareness and perceptions for free-from and functional foods are positively growing, reflecting in an increase in their demand. These foods encompass ever-growing dietary requirements and have shown to be powerful performers within numerous retail categories – from snacking, ready meals and out-of-home, to frozen, confectionery, and everyday grocery essentials”, says Ronald Holman, director of Free From Food & Health Ingredients.

The Free From Food & Health Ingredients Expo is thus a key strategy to respond to today’s food needs. The international event, organised by Expo Business Communications, will unveil the latest innovations and market forecasts for organic, vegan, lactose-free, gluten-free, meat- free and allergen-free food products and supplements.

To meet the professional’s demands, the 2022 edition comes with structural novelties

“Food professionals in Spain have shown us that they are great partners when it comes to the offering and consumption of healthy food that improves the quality of life, and Barcelona is a very attractive city to do business and enjoy the overall business experience”, adds Holman.

Attracting the professional’s interest

Over two days, Barcelona will host a revamped edition of the Free From Food & Health Ingredients Expo where producers, brand owners, researchers, food professionals, buyers and dietitians will discover and take advantage of new trends and opportunities in this growing sector.

Each edition is again attracting more and more highly qualified professionals focused on buying and influencing the Retail, Food Service, Catering and Bio Retail chains. “In order to strengthen healthy lifestyle claims on products, trade shows make connections between buyer and supplier to keep up with this demand”, says Ronald Holman.

New spaces and activities designed for professional visitors

To meet the professional’s demands, the 2022 edition comes with structural novelties. These include the V-label Area, an exclusive showcase for certified vegan brands, and the new international pavilions. It is also worth highlighting the presence of the biodegradable and sustainable packaging sector at Free From Expo Packaging. Focusing on the latest trends and innovations in this sector, visitors will be able to discover new biodegradable materials on the stands of food manufacturers, the retail trade and the HORECA channel.
