Specialised Pavilions/Zones


Germany is Europe’s largest market for organic food and drink products and the second largest globally. Between 2004 and 2013, the share of organic products in total food and drink launches in Germany grew from 1% to 18%. Growing demand for fair trade and sustainable F&B products around the world will mean greater transparency in supply chains, smaller carbon footprints for producers and an increase in the rise of ethically-driven organic brands. With Frankfurt as host for this year’s Hi Europe & Ni, there’s no better reason to pay a visit to the Organic Pavilion.

Free From

For the first time ever, this year will see the launch of a dedicated ‘Free From’ Pavilion at Hi Europe & Ni. Tap into the well-established growing free-from market at the ‘Free From’ Pavilion, connecting you to a wide range of ‘Free From’ nutritional and natural ingredients.

Natural Ingredients

Naturalness is one of the most important demand drivers in modern FMCG markets, and the ingredients industry is no longer the sole customer for natural ingredients (e.g. biofuels), leading to increased competition for supply of raw materials. The Natural Ingredients Pavilion provides an invaluable opportunity to source ingredients that are in high demand across multiple industries and front and centre of NPD in the F&B market – ingredients such as botanicals and natural colours and flavours, together with plant-based and herbal products.  

Expo FoodTec

In the Expo FoodTec pavilion at Hi Europe & Ni you will be able to source a wide range of food ingredient processing and packaging technology and machinery to solve your specific business challenges or needs.
