Aug 25: IFE-India, India's leading food, drink and hospitality show, is entering its fourth year in India with a heavy-duty presence from Australia, France, Spain and Malaysia, says Project Director Mel Shah of Montgomery International, London. The show is being organised at Pragati Maidan, Delhi's main exhibition ground, on December 7-9, 2006.
Austrade, which has confirmed the presence of nine major Australian food companies, will participate in the show for the first time. Another first will be the substantial presence from France, in the form of UBIFRANCE, which will bring with it 30 top food companies. Sopexa will continue its association with the show by organising B2B meetings for the French exhibitors.
FIAB, the Spanish food and wine marketing organisation, has doubled its presence with 16 companies. The Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers will participate with six companies.
From the wine world, India's presence will be significant this year, with Champagne Indage, Sovereign Impex, Sonarys and Raj Dhir announcing their participation - it promises to be a big first for them. Maureen Kerleau returns with her lesser-known treasures for thirsty souls. Other IFE-India old-timers who are returning to the show include the Ministry of Food Processing Industry, APEDA and Spices Board.
A significant addition this year will be State Bank of India, the country's largest nationalised bank, which will unveil its lucrative packages for the retail sector at the show.
It is interesting to note that after so many years of gap, Vinexpo India would be held at the same site. The maiden edition is being organised by Comexposium and InterAds Exhibitions on One hopes to find these biggies at this year's Show too.
