Estelle Alley, for Virginia Health Food Ltd, said: "We were very happy with the level of interest that our range of products created at the show overall, and we had the opportunity to meet new and interesting retail contacts from European markets that we do not currently supply. It will be as exciting as ever to pursue these conversations further after the show, and turn opportunity into success."
Jacob Miller, for The Primal Pantry, said: "A show that delivers on the quality and focused approach of visitors. We have talked to buyers from all over the world, looking to meet specific needs. We have been pleased to meet direct decision makers, from both retail and foodservice."
Colum McLornan, for Rule of Crumb, said: "We have entered the market in Dubai and the Middle East following connections made at the Free From Food Expo in Barcelona in 2015. We have met these contacts again - and new ones, in 2016. We come because the buyers know what they are looking for - and we have valuable conversations that translate into business."
Nathalie Spencer, for Suma Wholefoods, said: "We are representing a wide range of brands and Free From/Functional Food Expo provides an international platform for our suppliers. We have seen buyers from the Middle East, Europe, UK, China, Germany and Belgium - all seeking out free from products."
Giulia Cecchini, for Probios, said: "A great show for our brand. We have met buyers from across the world in one place - and have had useful conversations."
Mark Chrichton - for Bute Island Foods, said: This was a really well organised exhibition, by a very friendly and helpful team. We met important buyers from distributors and major retailers and have already re-booked our stand for next year in Barcelona!
Hartwig Hogrebe - for Ireks, said: "A perfect opportunity to meet major European buyers"
Derek O'Flynn - for Denise's Delicious, Said: "Many, many good contacts."
