"Despite the high expectations I always get them repaid on Foodexpo. For us the benefits we take home with us invaluable relative to Scandic's work and development in Food & Beverage. The framework for the exchange of ideas, learning and inspiration is perfect, and we are leaving wiser about the existing initiatives we can optimize on - and with ideas for brand new!
In summer, Scandic is the first hotel chain in Denmark launched a special breakfast buffet consisting solely of products for vegans and gluten and laktoseallergikere under the heading "A better tomorrow for all." The project has been running as a pilot in one hotel, but will in the autumn be rolled out to all of our hotels in Denmark.
Among other through our visits to Foodexpo, we have managed to make vision a reality. Here we could get in touch with the right suppliers - without which the project could not stand on the strong legs as it takes to carry a project of this caliber. "

“As always, it was a pleasure to be at Foodexpo. You felt welcome from the moment you come through the door. The stands are well positioned and the logistics are particularly efficient. The staff are committed and approachable and always ready to help with anything. I really appreciate the diversity and scope of the exhibitors and manufacturers, and I look forward to seeing and hearing ‘their latest news’, not to mention the exciting, and very often motivational speakers. One of the really great experiences involves the competitions for assistants and, particularly, apprentices, who will of course be the next generation of star gastronomes and waiters. I can’t wait for Foodexpo, the networking and the colleagues from near and far in 2016.”

“Right now, organic food is seriously making its impact on the country’s catering centres. So it was natural that organic food also played a major role at this year’s major food service fair. The extremely popular joint organic stand enabled companies to display the diversity of organic products, while catering professionals could discuss their wishes and needs with organic producers and suppliers. So Foodexpo 2014 helped pave the way for more organic meals in the nation’s kitchens. That means cleaner groundwater, richer countryside and animals living in excellent conditions.”
“For me personally, a visit to Foodexpo is a must. I always look forward to seeing the latest trends and drawing inspiration from developments within the industry. I use all the exciting and innovative input for the further development of my own shop. As Chairman of the Danish Butchers Association (DSM), I would definitely recommend my members to support Foodexpo, which I regard as the natural meeting place for operators in the industry. Foodexpo is all about meeting colleagues, suppliers and business associates, and enjoying a great chat with the challenges, which we, as independent businesses, and the industry as a whole face on an everyday basis. Once again in 2016, the Danish Butchers Association will organise a number of meetings and events for members in the hope of attracting a substantial number of DSM’s members to Foodexpo 2016.”

"If you have not visited Foodexpo the last few times, then do it in 2018! Foodexpo has developed in a very positive direction in the form of more relevance, more edge, more innovation. With a greatly increased competition it is important to constantly be at the forefront in Danish retail trade. Therefore I participate also Foodexpo 2018 to experience news, trends and meet industry colleagues and suppliers from home and abroad. I always look forward to meeting dedicated, committed and passionate enthusiasts, manufacturers and suppliers, and I always have "something" with me home from Foodexpo. I feel inspired to new development and business growth. "

“As far as I am concerned, taking part in Foodexpo is a must. I neither can nor will do without it. I think the fair is one of the absolute highlights of the year, a chance to draw inspiration from new ideas and trends. At Jesperhus, for years we have made it a habit for me and my team leaders to visit the fair together. It generates a great deal of energy and innovative thinking, and there is no doubt that it provides F & B and the retail sector with a boost, which we would not get without Foodexpo. It really enhances our interdepartmental cooperation and provides an invaluable social element. The fair is also about maintaining and reinforcing relationships between suppliers and colleagues. And, of course, it’s a bonus if you’re lucky enough to strike a good deal:-)”

“We are constantly focused on what we can do to stand out in a market, which gives customers a multitude of providers to choose from. In this respect, Foodexpo plays a vital role. At the fair we can exchange ideas with new players on the market, explore new products and gain input for any new initiatives we may be considering.

"Our industry is still developing faster and I have impressed observe Foodexpo do the same. The time when you could just pick the industry's suppliers as exhibitors and invite to the exhibition is over. There should be attractive packaging and current themes, backed a solid groundwork, and that is exactly what Foodexpo have done. Foodexpo 2016 was a thoroughly checked experience and I look forward to what's in the pipeline for the 2018 edition. "

“Foodexpo 2014 was the most successful exhibition in many years. With enormous support from suppliers and manufacturers in the industry, Herning really managed to raise the bar. ISS Facility Services A/S combined the fair with a day of inspiration for all canteens in cooperation with suppliers and the food industry. Everyone, who took part, enjoyed and benefited from it. We look forward to 2016 with great anticipation.”
