Healthier alternatives

Consumers are more and more aware of the link between their diet and their health. Most of them have a holistic approach of their health with not only the look for healthier food alternatives, but also more physical activity, less alcohol and cigarettes. This tour will show you the latest ingredients for healthier alternatives, for a better life.

Go natural and green
The main drivers are the rising stress about industrial practices and artificial elements in their food, and uncertainty in their lives and the world around them. The Clean Label challenge is going far beyond only taking artificial additives off of the product. It is about authenticity, traceability, organic or sustainable farming, vegetarian ingredients and products made with simple ingredients consumers are familiar with, traditionally and sustainably processed by real people with total transparency about the origins of the ingredients.

According to Mithia, there will be three pavilions at the event. These are as follows:

Health Ingredients Pavilion: It will showcase the global functional food and nutritional ingredients.

China Pavilion: Over 45 leading Chinese companies will display their range of products.

International Pavilion: It will be highlighting products from over 15 countries.

Food processing is one of the largest industries in India and is expected to be worth $482 billion, and subsequently, the Indian food and beverage retail market is expected to reach $915 billion by 2020. Dairy, beverages, bread and cereals, snacks and health products are the fastest-growing segments.The market for soft and alcoholic drinks is growing at a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 14 per cent.

Over the past two decades, the ingredients industry has evolved significantly, with consumers seeking functional foods that offer beneficial solutions to whatever health challenges they may face. From antioxidants to anti-allergens, and from fat reduction to sports nutrition, nutrition and wellness is a growing trend with no end in sight.

Health ingredients (Hi) India will be creating a powerhouse exhibition that provides a complete 360-degree perspective of the health, nutritional and wellness industry. By bringing the industry together, Fi India and Hi allow you to display your products to thousands of food professionals at once, and conduct business efficiently and effectively.

“We have been associated with Fi India and Hi for four years, and it has always been amazing to participate and network with different people to build our business,” he added.
