Following Russia’s recent food import bans imposed on European countries, the national group stands of Egypt, China, Brazil and Argentina have substantially increased their exhibiting space at WorldFood Moscow.
A group of seafood companies from Morocco as well as Dutch companies Staay Food Group and Haluco have confirmed participation in WorldFood Moscow, to take place Sept. 15-18.
WorldFood Moscow, Russia’s largest international food and drink tradeshow, covers a wide range of products and welcomes thousands of food and beverage companies from over 70 countries, and attracts leading supermarkets, distributors, wholesalers, restaurateurs, retailers and food production companies from Russia and the CIS region.
“The changes in Russia’s food regulations has meant that interest from non-EU countries entering this market has increased, and subsequently we have received an influx of last minute bookings from those countries that are not affected by the ban,” said Tony Higginson, sales director, WorldFood Moscow, ITE Group Plc.
“We are also pleased to confirm that Russia’s ban has had little effect on the event’s exhibitor list, as international companies, including EU companies, will exhibit to retain their presence in the market and to maintain existing client relationships,” Higginson continued.
WorldFood Moscow is a specialized business-to-business exhibition for professionals from the international food and drink industry to meet. Exhibitors at WorldFood Moscow will be divided into 11 sectors: fruit and vegetables; canned, confectionery and bakery; oils, fats and sauces; dairy products; drinks; grocery; fish and seafood; meat and poultry; frozen production; tea and coffee; and health and organic.
