Returning to ExCeL London for its sixth year Food Matters Live 2019 has introduced a new International Brands Pavilion, which will give global producers and food innovators the chance to showcase their products directly to the UK market.
The two-day event in November is the most prestigious business-to-business networking opportunity in the UK and attracts key buyers and development professionals from the food, drink, nutraceutical and manufacturing sectors.
The International Brands Pavilion will give brands the chance to introduce innovative healthy, natural and clean-label products to more than 15,000 visitors, including New Product Development (NPD) professionals, technical and innovation managers from the UK’s manufacture, retail and foodservice sectors.
International producers, manufacturers and organisations already signed up include the European Food Information Council (EUFIC), Nooj Ltd, Merzdorf Fine Food, Noor Enzymes Private Limited and Soja Austria.
The new pavilion sits alongside a curated exhibition of more than 800 ingredients providers and manufacturers, the largest gathering in the UK.
Food Matters Live Director Briony Mansell-Lewis said:
“The International Brands Pavilion is an exciting opportunity for food and drinks businesses new to the UK market or more established brands, which are looking for the chance to bring products to the UK for the first time.
“We have designed the pavilion as a cost-effective gateway for global brands to meet key professionals from across the retail, manufacturing and distribution sectors.
“It is a business platform not to be missed for producers looking to get a share of the £100 billion UK food and drinks market.”
Food Matters Live 2019 brings together the food and drink industry, retailers, foodservice providers, government, and those working in nutrition and health.
The event also includes:
