Fi Europe

Founded: 1986

Introduction

Fi Europe, or Food ingredients Europe, has been a leader for the ingredients industry for a long time and became an instant hit with exhibitors since its launch in 1986. The international trade fair is only one in a series of events that have spread to the rest of the world with offshoots in Africa, Asia, North America and South America, which only cements it as a powerful force on the market that should not be ignored. Food ingredients and associated technologies are at the heart of the show and exhibitors cover the entire processing chain from raw materials to processing solutions. Fi Europe performs a valuable dual function as a driver of innovation and a procurement platform. This is a particularly good thing as the global speciality food ingredients market is on a steady upward trajectory with current estimations placing its potential value at US $92.5b by 2022!

Logistics

Fi Europe is an annual trade fair that’s co-located with Ni Europe (Natural ingredients Europe) at the end of the calendar year, both of which are organised by Informa Markets. Usually this happens in December, but sometimes editions are held in November as well. The duration of each event is a total of three days. Fi Europe is known as a travelling event and each year a new city is chosen to host the trade fair. The upcoming edition is slated to take place in Paris, France and the venue is Paris-Nord Villepinte Parc d'Expositions. As one of the biggest and most famous events in the world it’s well-connected to the airport by train, has a bus stop and a RER train station nearby. Doors are open from 10:00 am in the morning until 18:00 pm in the afternoon with the last ending at 16:30 pm.
