NEW for 2019

Food ingredients North America trade show to debut at SupplySide West

Food ingredients North America (FiNA) will be launched in 2019 co-located with the SupplySide West trade show Oct 17-18 in Las Vegas. The combined trade show will bring together two key events serving the global food, beverage and dietary supplement markets. The Food ingredients events around the world offer food and beverage manufacturers access to a wide range of ingredient suppliers, and Fi North America will bring this event to the United States for the first time.

In addition to attracting visitors from large food and beverage brands, the event will also serve the fast growing natural, organic and functional food and beverage companies that are driving significant innovation in the market. Thousands of these brands participate in the Natural Products Expo West/East trade shows to promote and sell their consumer products. With sourcing and supply among the top challenges for many of these fast-growing companies, Fi North America and SupplySide West promise to offer access to the ingredients and services they need.

SupplySide West and Fi North America will aim at connecting and educating professionals responsible for developing finished foods, health, and nutritional products with ingredient suppliers across the food and beverage industry; providing a platform for doing business, with high quality content and digital services, for the complete vertical value chain.
