This mega exhibition comprises 4 sub-events focusing on Indonesia’s growing palates for Sweets & Snacks, Organic Food, Coffee & Tea and Wine, Spirits & Gourmet. FBI aspires to bring forward a colourful showcase of unique food and beverage types as well as culinary equipment and technologies to cater to different consumption habits, taste preference and F&B production methods.

The exhibition will connect them to targeted customers in person and enable close-up engagement with the influential network of food and beverage sales agents, distributors, retailers and brand influencers.

The exhibition will feature an extensive product range with each of 4 sub-events presenting the best end or ready-to-consume product for their category. Available across all sub-events and FBI in general are also the processing, preparation and culinary equipment, ingredients and raw materials and F&B technology or solutions sought after or provided by HORECA industry equipment providers, such as chillers, ovens, work benches. In all, FBI will gather food manufacturers, bakery house owners, beverage producers, tableware and cutlery suppliers, end-product sellers and entrepreneurs involved in the food and beverage trade at one central venue.

For visitors’ benefit, FBI will introduce Indonesian consumers and trade buyers to the ‘Next Big Thing’ in food and beverage, produced specially to represent Indonesia’s quality brand and popularity in the international F&B scene. Visitors can expect a fiesta full of fun onsite activities, amazing food spread and a feast of flavours and taste that are characteristically Indonesian. Visitors ranging from chefs, hoteliers, restauranteurs, small to large F&B businesses, baking and culinary skill enthusiasts including all food and beverage lovers will be the motivating factors for exhibiting companies to confidently promote their products’ outstanding taste, packaging, even retail value that would soon be popular amongst Indonesia’s large consumer groups.

Optimistic that the economic spring back and upswing in 2021 will allow for a robust trade exhibition to take place, Mrs. Rini Sumardi, Director of PT WAKENI said that, “The exhibition takes inspiration from Indonesia’s promisingly profitable food and beverage industry that has proven to be resilient against recent pandemic impacts. Food consumption needs are prevalent and continue to boast huge sales and buyer prospects.” This provides a meaningful backdrop for participating companies to identify new distributors and sales agents that will pave their entry into broader consumer markets. FBI offers the perfect platform for participating companies to introduce brand or to strengthen brand awareness across Indonesia and possible export markets. As immediate procurement orders can be made at the exhibition, exhibitors can also expect quick return of investment and see fast participation results.
