The International Food and Drinks Event occurs every two years and we attended IFE yet for the third time. We were so pleased to see so many more vegan and free-from brands! We also met a lot of new lolly lovers who really liked what our lollies have to offer.
From 17 – 20 March 2019, ExCel London opened their doors for all food and drink lovers from all across the globe. At IFE you can discover emerging food and drink trends and even get a change to taste them all. You can also get inspired by brands and key figures of the business or meet some of the new brands on the block and get to know them.
We talked to a lot of new brands about what they were selling and we noticed something. We saw three reoccurring trends: vegan, plant-based and free-from foods. A lot of brands are going in the organic direction which we were really pleased with. Not only were the foods becoming organic certified, but also sustainable packaging was becoming popular.
During the event we could finally announce that our lolly wrappers are going to be compostable! We got a lot of positive reactions from you guys and from people at the event. And we are so glad we can finally tell the world!
