At the heart of the UK Food & Drink Shows 2025, Foodex Manufacturing Solutions (7-9 April 2025, NEC Birmingham) will return to the UK’s largest food & drink event with the new Packaging Zone as well as the Ingredients Zone.
Brought to you by William Reed, the publishers of Food Manufacture, The Grocer, Retail Week and Convenience Store, these zones are dedicated to exploring the latest trends driving the sector and to showcase the latest products and services to improve operational efficiency and growth.
Our all-new Packaging Zone will be a ‘one-stop shop’ for those food and drink businesses seeking solutions to their packaging & plastic challenges, with emphasis on sustainable solutions.
This new zone will allow packaging industry professionals to connect with one another, share circular economy ideas, meet solutions providers and discover ground-breaking plastic reduction innovations to implement into their own business.
We believe 2025 will be a key year for the UK Food & Drink Sector to invest in its future packaging outcome. The Food Manufacture Stage and The Grocer Stage will offer live interactive sessions covering these key industry issues with experts and business leaders.
Alongside this zone, the Ingredients Zone will also make its return in 2025 after a successful year in 2023. Dedicated to sourcing the very best raw ingredients, this zone will also promote the use of new ingredients, solutions and services to the UK’s most progressive food and drink professionals.
The UK Food & Drink Shows 2025 unites Foodex Manufacturing Solutions (incorporating Ingredients Zone and Packaging Zone), Farm Shop & Deli Show, Food & Drink Expo, National Convenience Show and The Restaurant Show under one roof. One pass provides access to all 5 co-located shows, encompassing food development, manufacturing, grocery, hospitality, specialist retail, forecourt and convenience retail, wholesale and foodservice.
