5 Russian food trade events you must attend in 2017

2017 is rapidly approaching. With the new year comes a fantastic programme of ITE Food & Drink trade shows. Running the length and breadth of Russia throughout the year, our trade shows connect thousands of international and domestic companies with the Russian food industry’s major figures.

With that in mind, here are five ITE events you need to attend to make real headway into one of the world’s biggest food and beverage markets.

WorldFood Moscow 

• 11-14 September 2017
• Expocentre, Moscow

WorldFood Moscow is Russia’s biggest trade show dedicated to the food and drinks industry. For over 25 years, it has been a key player in connecting Russia’s multi-billion dollar food sector with international clients from across the globe. 

2016’s show was one of the best yet. Over 75% of exhibitors said they are feeling highly optimistic about Russia’s food and drink prospect from 2017 onwards. 

Included at WorldFood Moscow is an extensive business programme, known as the Food Forum, offering deeper insight into the trends and topics hitting the Russian food industry. Further opportunities are discussed here, so make sure you are in attendance so you don’t miss out on this handy insider information.

InterFood Ural

• 18-20 April 2017
• Yekaterinburg-EXPO

InterFood Ural is the only international food show in the region. Situated in Ekaterinburg, and dedicated to food, drink, packaging materials and processing equipment, the exhibition brings foreign businesses to a region that often flies below the global radar. 

Food processing and production is vital to Ekaterinburg. The industries is one of the region’s main industries, with over 500 companies operating across 10 subsectors located in and around the city. 

Nearly 70% of InterFood Ural 2016’s exhibitors found new customers or partners at the event – providing them access to a slice of Russia’s vast food market that could have gone unnoticed. Expand your horizons outside St. Petersburg and Moscow by attending InterFood Ural in 2017.

Dairy & Meat Industry

• 28 February – 3 March 2017
• Crocus Expo, Moscow

With self-sufficiency targeted for 2023, Russia’s meat and dairy industries are stepping up production activity considerably. Russia already provides 6% of global milk output, while 3.3% of the world’s total meat resources are consumed by Russians.

Dairy & Meat Industry covers the entirety of Russia’s full agro-industrial production cycle, responding to changing realities facing the industry. 2017’s show brings two new event sectors, Cattle Feed and Agricultural Mechanisation – giving manufacturers of industry-specific technology and equipment further scope to get their products in front of the buyers that matter. 

Over $500 billion in government investment is planned for the next few years for Russia’s meat and dairy sectors. Tap into this potentially hugely lucrative market at Dairy & Meat Industry 2017.

Interfood St. Petersburg

• 19-21 April 2017
• Expoforum, St. Petersburg

St. Petersburg. The former Russian capital is a stunning centre of culture, history and beauty. It is also the setting for North-West Russia’s leading food industry event: InterFood St. Petersburg. Since 1997, the event has been providing Russian producers a chance to get hands with high quality products from overseas and domestic producers.

Running alongside InterFood is Prodtech, offering a platform for manufacturers of food processing and packing technologies to expand into the North-West region. This is the only event of its kind in the area, adding further strings to InterFood St. Petersburg’s already formidable bow.

This is the region’s most comprehensive food and beverage trade exhibition – and gives your business further scope to supply Russia’s 143 million consumers with top quality foodstuffs.

Ingredients Russia

• 28 February – 3 March 2017
• Crocus Expo, Moscow

While ITE Food & Drink’s other Russian shows cover the entirety of the food and beverage sectors, only one is focussed on ingredients: the aptly named Ingredients Russia. Over 8,000 visitors attended 2016’s show, while 128 companies exhibited at the event.

Ingredients Russia is rightly praised for the high quality of its attendees. Over 94% of decision makers, buyers and food figures visiting the show said they were now considering towards purchasing products displayed at the show.
