"This was by-far the most successful online event I participated in during the last year, and I participated in quite a lot. As an ingredient-manufacturer and ingredient oriented company, I liked very much the concept and possibility to be considered as an “Ingredient Expert”. I managed to coordinate 13 meetings (all were very relevant with good potential future opportunities) as well as 6 additional meetings which took place after. And with the support of the Food Matters Live team, the leads are continuing, long after the event is over. Bottom line, it was a great door-opener event."

Amnon Berger, International Sales Manager, Galam Ltd

Hear from our ingredient community: 

Sophie Liosel Fytexia

"Food Matters Live 2021 virtual event has been a great opportunity to meet with industry professionals and discuss our favorite topic: scientifically supported ingredients! We hope the overview of the benefits of galactooligosaccharides standardized in HMOs we gave has been of interest for the attendees and we are delighted to follow up on the inquiries we received post-show."

Sophie Loisel, Business Development Director, Fytexia 

Michelle Briggs

“We were pleased to discover how well the new Food Matters Live format worked. Being able to identify what delegates were looking for in advance meant we were able to take a much more selective approach to arranging meetings, optimising the time available on the platform. The notification system worked well and, given the quality of the leads generated, we would definitely consider exhibiting again in the future."

Michelle Briggs, Director of Sales and Business Development, UK, Avena

Angela Whitney

"This was our first experience of digital events, the event was well organised with lots of opportunities to promote our business. The event was well attended and the meetings were simple to schedule and very focussed. The speaker schedule was interesting and topical. Altogether a very worthwhile event."
