Food Ingredient Europe Themes

We expect that the themes for Food Ingredients Europe 2024 will follow similar lines to 2023. Shorter innovation cycles and changed consumer behaviour have resulted in a golden era of innovation for the F&B industry. The food ingredients industry is evolving because of emerging trends such as clean label, plant-based, clean meat and sustainability. This is due to health-conscious consumers who desire better, sustainably sourced and healthier food options. Therefore, the 2023 Food Ingredients Europe exposition included the following themed zones:

  • Food Ingredients
  • Health Ingredients
  • Organic Ingredients
  • Natural Ingredients
  • Free From Ingredients
  • Plant-based Ingredients
  • New Exhibitors
  • Expo FoodTec

Specific ingredients also their own specialised pavilions at Food Ingredients Europe 2023 – for example, GOED-Omega 3 , an international association representing 200 companies, will organise the Omega 3 pavilion and the International Probiotics Association will organise the Probiotics pavilion. In 2023 there is also a focus on sustainability – the organisers have three sustainability objectives: to inspire sustainable development, to run the event in an environmentally responsible manner and to ensure the event is socially responsible. We expect that the Food Ingredients 2024 will return on 18 November 2024. Fi Europe have not yet announced the themes for the 2024 summit.
