20th edition ifia/HFE - JAPAN International Food Ingredients Additives Exhibition and Conference

The Gateway to the Japanese Market

(PresseBox) (Düsseldorf, ) ifia/HFE JAPAN 2015, the 20th edition of the International Food Ingredients Additives Exhibition and Conference, will be held on May, 20th – 22nd at Tokyo International Exhibition Center Big Sight. The three day event is authorized by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry as well as the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare of Japan. It brings together manufactures and suppliers from all areas of the food industry to explore new opportunities and discover the latest products, techniques, and technology the industry has to offer. With more than 34,000 international visitors and around 780 booths and several international pavilions on 6,750 sqm the ifia/HFE Japan 2015 edition will affirm its position as leading functional food, ingredients and additives event in Japan again.

ifia/HFE JAPAN 2015 creates a strong and reliable platform to launch into the Japanese market, showcasing products and services to key decision makers in the industry. Boguslaw Zgierski, Export Sales Manager from MOKATE Poland says: “It did not take long to decide which event should be chosen – ifia seemed to be the best focused exhibition of this type in Japan at the first glance. Our participation enabled us to make the first steps there. This is why we find it absolutely sensible and profitable to exhibit at ifia, especially if there is about “new-comers” or the companies who want to look around the market. In this sense we can strongly recommend this event as really helpful to develop the business in Japan.”

Ifia/HFE JAPAN 2015 is sponsored by the Japan Food Additives Association. Due to the sharp rise in price for raw food materials the demand for additives and alternative ingredients has never been higher than before. With Japanese consumers now heavily shifting towards functional, healthy and nutritious foods, opportunities for the industry are great. The high-level educational forum alongside the exhibition attracts senior level buyers and decision makers searching for products and services. Over 20,000 attendees out of 34,000 are from corporate management, research & development, purchasers, dealers, and sales agents, generating multiple business opportunities for all exhibitors.
