IFE Manufacturing returns for the food & drink development sector
Visitor registration has opened for IFE Manufacturing which will return to ExCeL London on 20-22 March 2023 as a comprehensive event for end-to-end food & drink production.
Taking place alongside IFE, International Food & Drink Event, IFE Manufacturing welcomes a wide range of product developers, F&B brands, packaging and manufacturing processionals and anyone with an interest in creating quality food & drink products.
Producer developers and food brands will have the opportunity to meet with quality ingredients suppliers from around the world, including Al Barakah Dates Factory, The British Quinoa Company, yeast specialist Lallemand Bio-Ingredients, seed supplier Unicorn Ingredients and much more.
The Trends & Innovation Platform will play host to industry leaders, food & drink brand owners and consultants, discussing the major trends and challenges in the food production sector, covering topics such as rising costs, stretched supply chains, innovations like precision fermentation and consumer-driven migrations to more natural ingredients and sustainable, plant-based alternatives.
The show will also offer food & drink brands the chance to visit the Certification Clinic, where they can learn what it takes to achieve various industry accreditations, and Ask the Expert, where they can receive objective, tailored advice to take their product or business to the next level.
NPD Consultant Nick Henson said of the 2022 event: “I thoroughly enjoyed being part of the two lively NPD panels which showcased the diverse body of expertise that IFE Manufacturing was able to bring to the event. The crowds were certainly testament that the interest in NPD in the food sector is alive, well and thriving.”
Naheed Noori, NPD Process Technologist at The Soho Sandwich Company, says: “IFE Manufacturing is a great opportunity to help build a stronger relationship with existing and new customers and suppliers. The talks are helpful in knowing the latest trends and future innovation, I can’t wait to come back in 2023!”
IFE Manufacturing is pleased to be continuing partnerships with a number of major industry associations covering all areas of food production and food development into 2023.
Tim McLachlan, Chief Executive of the Institute of Food Science & Technology (IFST), comments: “IFST is delighted once again to exhibit at IFE Manufacturing. As the leading professional body for food technical professionals, IFST looks forward to growing our food science community, meeting current and potential members, and networking with food businesses and organisations from across the globe.”
David Newman, MD of the Bio-Based Industries Association (BBIA), adds: “The BBIA is delighted to be partnering with IFE Manufacturing once again in 2023. Developing a sustainable bioeconomy is a hugely important topic in food & drink production and we’re glad to see that this is topping the agenda at this year’s event. We’re excited to meet with the food & drink brands and manufacturers attending the event and hear about the latest trends and innovations in the sector.”
