Consumers are now seeking beneficial, functional foods that provide solutions to their nutritional challenges, and the health and wellness food & beverage industry is going through a period of substantial growth. The Netherlands currently shows significant development and opportunity, with an 18% increase in its health and wellness sales between 2008 and 2013. Furthermore, sales in the Benelux region reached €10 billion in 2013 and are expected to rise by €1 billion by 2018. Sales in products with specific health benefits and those renowned for their health properties are driving the upward trend in health and wellness. With an expected real term growth of 7% by 2017, the global health and wellness industry is on its way to hitting a record high of $1 trillion dollars.

To capture these market trends, Hi Europe will provide a global meeting place and environment for buyers and sellers within the worldwide health & wellness ingredients industry, to conduct business. The show will highlight ingredients and solutions for food and drink formulation/reformulation, dietary supplements, nutraceuticals, organics and packaging & processing.
