FHA-Food & Beverage is set to gather one of Asia’s largest line-ups of exhibitors from the world, at the Singapore EXPO, from 25th to 28th April 2023. The trade show will be complemented by daily seminars, the Alternative Protein Asia Seminar Programme, as well two competitions, including the inaugural FHA Beer Awards (10 categories including IPA, Wheat, Experimental Beers and more) and the Young Talents Escoffier (under 25, from 25th to 27th April 2023, in either the kitchen and service categories).
This year’s edition will showcase over 50 different Country pavilions and 1,500 exhibitors from 70 Countries; the event is expected to see more than 40,000 attendees to the exhibition and seminars.
“The response to this year’s event has been overwhelming, despite occurring shortly after the 2022 edition which was held in September and had been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We believe that this event will greatly contribute to the development of the food and beverage industry in Asia and will help create better business opportunities for everyone”, explains Ian Roberts, vice president Informa Markets Asia.
Creating all-inclusive approaches to global food issues
One of the main highlights of the trade event is the FHA Seminar, which looks to create meaningful discussion on food trends, sustainability issues, and technology innovation. Attendees can look forward to presentations from industry representatives, eco-organisations, and research institutes on Asia’s ever-changing Halal food scene, sustainability initiatives to reduce food waste, and discussions on how agritech and aquaculture can be used to create a secure food future.
Alternative proteins: The solution to our food future?
With alternative proteins emerging as an innovative solution to food security issues, the event further seeks to spotlight it to Asian audiences through the Alternative Protein Asia feature area, a specialised exhibition zone with industry innovation trends in this segment. Moreover, the event will have a Tasting Bar, a Start-up Village and an Alternative Protein Asia Seminar, where leading manufacturers, investors, and thought-leaders will share insights and updates on the current landscape, business strategies, and opportunities in Asia’s alternative protein sector for a sustainable food future.
