Hottest new global products on show at UK’s leading food and drink trade exhibition

This spring from 16-18 April, Food & Drink Expo will return to the NEC in Birmingham, showcasing some of the industry’s hottest new brands and talent. The show is set to offer advice from thought leaders and provide consultancy on some of the most pressing topical issues and trends from reducing plastic packaging to the incredible rise in consumers looking to include more plant-based food in their diets. A behemoth of the UK’s food and drink calendar, the exhibition promises an exciting speaker programme covering food waste, personal nutrition, brand building, how SMEs can thrive in a tough marketplace, provenance and food pairings.


This year, visitors will be able to see and sample produce from 25 countries including Canada, China, Cyprus, Dubai, France, Hong Kong, Iceland, India, Iran, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Malaysia, Netherlands, Russia, Slovakia, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka, and Turkey. This provides an unparalleled opportunity to gain key insights and tap into global trends.




Helping buyers to identify unique products from around the world, the show will feature

nine pavilions. These include Taste of Nova Scotia; Taste Cork; Food & Drink Wales; Scotland Food & Drink; the Italian Trade Commission; Orkney Quality Food; and Drink Chambre D’Agriculture De Dordogne, as well as further flung Dadao TONGTU (Beijing Expo) and Iran International Exhibitions Co.


Alongside the exhibition itself, Food & Drink Expo will once again provide an insightful series of live seminars sharing the very latest food and drink trends, tackling industry issues and quandries and examining predictions for the future. The collection of sessions will be hosted by some of the food and drink industries movers and shakers. The event theatre will provide the opportunity to enjoy lively discussions hosted by high profile speakers and garner astute market insights and ideas to support growth.


Dan Dixon, Sales Director at Food & Drink Expo, said: “The show only takes place every two years but provides a unique, first-hand opportunity to see some of the most exciting and of-the-moment products on the market. The event also affords buyers and representatives from foodservice and grocery industries the chance to meet the people behind these businesses. In an ever more digitalised world, this is often an invaluable opportunity to understand product USPs, as well as offering the opportunity to build one-to-one relationships with key people.”
