Give Your Tradeshow Presence a Competitive Advantage

Food Tech Summit & Expo is the leading expo of the food & beverage industry in LATAM, with a global scope. 

The food processing industry in Mexico is the world's 11th largest and the 3rd largest in the Americas after the U.S. and Brazil.  The food industry in Mexico is one of the most dynamic, with an average annual growth of 4.3%. 

Key market drivers for the food processing sector include an increasing interest in healthy foods across all age groups as well as increasing demand of organic foods and natural ingredients. There is also increased demand for convenience foods and prepared meals, due to the growth of urban cities and more women entering the work force. There is also more demand for gourmet and more sophisticated food products. Consumers are looking for new food experiences and are open to trying more exotic flavors and ethnic foods.
