International Food & Drink Event adds a vegan and plant-based food and drink section

According to The Caterer’s news, The International Food & Drink Event (IFE) has announced the addition of a vegan and plant-based food and drink section to the show for 2022. The show organisers have partnered with Birmingham-based charity the Vegan Society to create a platform for suppliers to showcase products, provide tastings and network with buyers searching for plant-based and vegan products for their businesses.

Event manager Nicola Woods said: “Consumers are more aware than ever of the origins of their food and its environmental impact, as fresh ingredients, home cooking and buying local become more prevalent, and we wanted to reflect that shift on the show floor. As always, the show is striving to respond to consumer trends and to cater for tomorrow’s supermarket shelves and restaurant menus.”

IFE will run from 28 February to 2 March at ExceL London.
