Specialty Food Europe joins Free From Food Show in Amsterdam

Specialty Food Europe will join the Free From Food Show, taking place 5-6th November at the RAI Exhibition and Conference Centre in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Marking Specialty Food Europe’s first trade event of 2024, the pairing comes as buyers seek to expand into the fine food sector.

“We chose to co-locate Specialty Food Europe with Free From Food this year to further optimise our exhibitors’ and visitors’ return on investment”, said Chris Gottschalk, director of marketing and sales, in a statement. 

“Free From and Specialty Food Show is the premiere destination for those who want to experience the incredible breadth of healthy and ‘good for you’ food products available today, from less ultra processed to more added-nutritional-value, traditional and functional food and beverage makers to innovators and trendsetters. It will definitely enhance the overall experience of all participants,” Chris said.

Free From Food focuses on allergen-free, functional, vegan and organic food and drink products, and this will align with the gourmet and artisanal foods displayed at Specialty Food Europe to enhance the overall experience for both shows’ attendees, said Ronald Holman, managing director of the organiser Expo Business Communications (EBC).

“EBC is excited to have Specialty Food Europe co-located with the Free From Food Show,” said Sarah DePietro, director of business development for EBC. “Our buyers have expressed significant interest in expanding into more non-free-from (no-claims) and fine food options, making this a natural pairing that will add to the experience for attendees and exhibitors of both shows.”

Free From Food’s 12th edition will gain exclusive access to Specialty Food Europe’s audience of premium, luxury and fine food producers, distributors, importers, deli shops, independent, small and specialised retail, opening new avenues for collaboration and growth.
