The new pavilion offers visitors from the retail environment a one-stop-shop on the 22,000 metres squared show floor.

In addition, more than 40 exhibiting companies produce ingredients and/ or finished products themselves, including key players such as Glanbia Nutritionals and Stern Vitamins.
Healthy food: a growing but undefined category
“Consumers associate both healthy food as well as nutritional supplements with a positive effect on their own health,” Hi Europe Brand Manager Julien Bonvallet said.
“At the same time, they expect more transparency, sustainability and trustworthiness than with normal finished products. Meeting these high standards is a key task for the entire industry. Inspiration, know-how and the right partners are available at HIE, with the Healthy Finished Products Expo highlighting successful product examples.”
With innovative examples from a wide variety of applications, Healthy Finished Products Expo truly reflects the full spectrum of activity in this dynamic market.
