WORLD ALLERGEN & SMART FOOD EXPOFocusing on what, when, how much and how to eat in order to live better.
A B2B event at which the Exhibitor meets Buyers and Researchers through an innovative but already fully tried-and-tested Matching formula. The Expo is also geared towards the public, thanks to the all-new Healthy Eating Route, on which – in partnership with the University of Padua and the Padua Hospital Trust – the products of Exhibiting Companies are showcased.
New lifestyles are defining a new food market. Brought together through the interest shown by professional Buyers, the ever-increasing demand for Functional Products – both from those who are keen to improve a biological function (such as professional sportspeople, sports enthusiasts, the elderly and pregnant women) and from those who want to eat in a way that will immediately reduce their risk of illness or those who are already living with a condition and want to reduce their intake of medicines – is developing naturally alongside the demand for Food Supplements and Medical Foods, as well as the requirements of the more than 5.4 million Italians who suffer from Food Allergies and Intolerances, with in excess of 12 million Italians potentially affected by these conditions.*
