IFE 2017 (The International Food & Drink Event) is the UK’s biggest and most important food & drink trade show. Taking place 19-22 March in London, the home of innovation, the event provides an unrivalled opportunity to source exciting and new food & drink from 1,350 British & global suppliers. Tickets to attend are free if you register via the website www.ife.co.uk/eu. For travel or hotel discounts please visit www.ife.co.uk/promo.
Products as diverse as date nectar, tree water, BBQ jams and even the latest botanical food trend – kola nuts – will make IFE 2017 the place to be for the latest menu inspiration and newest shelf fillers. While the Great British & Irish Food section of the event will showcase the highest quality, artisan and most delicious products the UK has to offer.
Buyers can satisfy their sweet tooth with a visit to BeLoVeD at stand N1626 to sample date nectar, a 100 percent date-based healthier alternative to honey or syrup, which not only tastes great, but offers both enhanced fibre and potassium content. For a thirst quenching experience head to the Dalston stand N2142, for a hand-mashed cola made from an infusion of citrus juices, spices and kola nuts; the fruit of the African kola tree. These products are just a tiny example of the inspiring foods you can discover at IFE 2017.
For those interested in learning more about the wider trends impacting the industry, IFE’s ever-popular seminar and debate programme will be enhanced for 2017, with the introduction of several new speaker stages including the Talking Trends stage. This stage will be filled with inspirational talks on the latest UK and international NPD and food trends. Complementing this will be The Big Picture theatre hosting IFE 2017’s keynote speakers, giving insight on a range of hard hitting industry issues such as Brexit, the sugar debate and millennial consumers.
Co-located with IFE is Pro2Pac, the UK’s only food & drink packaging event and Waste-Works, the UK’s only waste and sustainability event for the food industry. The three events together cover the entire supply chain; from farm to fork, to fertiliser and fuel.
