Food & Bio Cluster Denmark will 22-24 November 2021 host an Innovation Tour to Europe’s No. 1 food event “Free From Functional Food and Health Ingredients 2021” + “Sustainable Packaging” in Amsterdam. Denmark is the country of the year and will be celebrated on several occasions during the event.
We start the Innovation Tour with a visit to the Dutch cluster Foodvalley NL in Wageningen. Here we will visit StartLife, a hub for agrifood startups and the Food & Biobased Research (FBR) department of the Wageningen University & Research (WUR). During this visit the participants will also have the opportunity to network with members of Foodvalley.
“Free from Functional Food and Health Ingredients” has 300 exhibitors from 35 countries, 45 top speakers and 8,000 professionals visiting from 65 countries. Besides, the opportunity to meet new business partners, the participants will learn about new, trendy, innovative products and technologies and of course get inspiration from the exhibitors as well. The visit to the food event will include a guided innovation tour, and the participants can participate in several conferences and Insights.
To give inspiration from Denmark, one of the participants, The Danish Technological Institute is one of the key-note speakers at the conference “Suppliers & Insight”. Anne Louise Dannesboe Nielsen will give a presentation on “Meat substitutes – status of trends and market overview in Scandinavia and Europe”
There is also a matchmaking event at the food event, already 10 Danish participants have registered and booked several meetings. During the meetings, participants will meet potential cooperation partners whether it concerns business, technology or research.
To further the relations with Danish and Dutch companies, and the two clusters, Food & Bio Cluster Denmark is hosting a networking reception at the food event. We are very pleased that both the Dutch and Danish Ambassadors will be present.
We are very much looking forward to hosting the Innovation Tour and to bring new inspiration and ideas and new contacts back to our members.
