The organisers of the Free From Functional & Health Ingredients (FFFHI) and Free From Packaging (FFP) have confirmed that the events, which were planned to take place at the RAI Amsterdam from 24-25 June, will be postponed to 24-25 November 2020, following the global escalation of COVID-19.
Speaking about the announcement, Ronald Holman, Event Director, said: “The health and safety of our growing Free From community is our number one priority. While it is disappointing to postpone, we believe it is in the best interests of all involved – from our exhibitors and visitors to our staff, show sponsors and partners. This is not a decision we have made lightly, but with careful consideration of the needs of the wider community that make this event such a success.
“We understand that Free From Functional & Health Ingredients is an important event in the Free From community and we want to extend our thanks for the support and understanding shown during this challenging time. We look forward to welcoming you to the RAI Amsterdam this November when we can return to create a great event that offers value for both our exhibitors and attendees.”
Free From Functional & Health Ingredients (FFFHI) is Europe’s leading platform for the dynamic free from industries. The Expo sits alongside Free From Packaging (FFP) – making this the most comprehensive Free From focused event in Europe.
Reflecting one of the food and drink industry’s most dynamic sectors, FFFHI and FFP will return in November to showcase pioneering developments across five distinct product categories including Free From, Vegan, Natural/Organic, Functional and Ingredients.
