FI India 2011, only focused show on food ingredients, will showcase advanced technologies and innovations on 3- 4 October 2011 at BEC, Mumbai.

This fair is a driving force to India's processed food sector and has a fundamental role in facilitating the industry's only meeting place. Food professionals from India and around the world use this opportunity to learn about the latest industry developments, meet new business prospects and launch new products to gain competitor advantage in the fastest growing food markets of the world.

Food professionals come to FI India in order to view and purchase new ingredients, satisfy consumers' latest nutritional needs and demands. With a rapidly expanding middle class population, now over 300 million (larger than the total population of either the US or the EU), increased urbanization, improved standards of living and the convenience needs of dual income families.

By bringing the industry together, FI India allows companies to display their products to thousands of food professionals at once and conduct business in an efficient and effective manner. With the Indian food and beverage market expanding rapidly, there is an emerging trend in the nutraceutical division. Nutraceuticals are gaining acceptance globally for their ability to address several diseases. Vitamins, Minerals and Nutrients constitute about 85% of the global market while antioxidants and anti-agents account for 10% other segments such as herbal extracts occupy 5% of the market.

In addition to the exhibition, FI India will also host a high level 2 day modular conference onsite. Noted speakers will have discussions on diverse topics such as innovations in ingredients, dairy, bakery, health and wellness. Each seminar will feature in-depth analysis and case studies presented by a line-up of carefully selected speakers from the leading food and beverage manufacturers, ingredients suppliers and research organisations.

This specially designed conference will address all queries and concerns related to complex food safety laws, ambiguous health and labeling claims, lengthy registration processes and the exclusion of essential ingredients. The select speakers will also provide technical insights and expert regulatory guidance on meeting global standards and overcoming export and labeling issues. The conference will facilitate visitors to enter new markets and increase market penetration internationally.
