The 10th edition of Fi India & Hi trade show will take place at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Mumbai, India from Monday, October 19 - Wednesday, October 21. As the only B2B platform for the Indian food and health industry, Fi India & Hi offers the industry an opportunity to source high quality ingredients, network with industry professionals, learn the latest industry trends & innovations, and expand their market share.

Powered by 10 years of industry experience, Fi India provides a series of free, on-site seminars with speakers from leading trade associations across the globe. These specialized seminars will cover a range of topics from the growth of nutraceuticals and functional foods to licensing in the Indian food market. And because nutrition and wellness is a fast-growing trend with no end in sight, Health ingredients (Hi) has created a powerhouse exhibition that will provide a complete 360 perspective of the health, nutritional and wellness industry. The technical seminars on Day 1 will be conducted by AFSTI, the Association of Food Scientists and Technologists (India). AFSTI is one of the largest professional and educational organisations, with around 2,300 members from across the globe. Their sessions will cover "Compliance for the ingredients industry" and will discuss general compliances, analytical compliances and FSMS compliances.

Also, in addition to the high-level ingredient suppliers showcasing their products, Fi India will once again host the previously successful Expo FoodTec Pavilion. Responding to the growing need for solutions in processing, packaging, equipment and services, Fi India will once again include this popular pavilion giving attendees the ability to source solutions for a more complete range of needs.

For the second year, Fi India & Hi introduces a Free Bakery Workshop. The workshop will take place on the 19-20 October in Hall no. 6. The workshop will be conducted by Assocom Institute of Bakery Technology & Management (AIBTM), a comprehensive teaching, training and research centre specifically for baking technology and allied disciplines. The workshop will include both seminars and demonstrations.
