Voices of the exhibitors 2022

  • Matthias Thienel
    CEO – Destilla

    Destilla has over 50 years of expertise in flavours and extracts. In Iran, we see an especially high demand for our drinks and beverage flavours. That is also where our visitors here at Iran food ingredients come from.

    After two years of corona-related absence from Iran food ingredients, it’s great to be back and be part of this event, and an amazing opportunity to meet new customers.

  • Shaho Balani
    Managing Director – Bell Flavors & Fragrances

    We develop products for the food, beverage, cosmetic, personal care, and household care companies throughout the world. Our Iranian clients are especially interested in our vanilla, butter and strawberry flavors.

    At Iran food ingredients, we meet with our main clients and new ones. For our future participations we wish the event would reduce the public visitors so that we can concentrate on our B2B talks.

  • Sanaz Shahrokhi
    Executive Assistant – Pishgaman Pakhsh Sadigh PPS

    PPS is specialized in the distribution, import, export and marketing of packed food products, ingredients, food additives and pharmaceutical products.

    At Iran food ingredients, we are very pleased with numerous visits of our clients after the corona pandemic.

  • Hozhabr Mirzaiyan
    Business Manager – CHR Hansen

    We are a leading, global bioscience company that develops natural ingredient solutions for the food, nutritional, pharmaceutical and agricultural industries.

    So far at Iran food ingredients, we have met with production and R&D managers and commercial teams of dairy companies.

    We have had a great number of excellent meetings and we are highly satisfied with the outcome.

  • Chantal Borghino
    Area Sales Manager - IPRA France 

    We develop and produce food flavourings for the food industry. Our expertise extends to all sectors of application: beverages, savoury products, pastry, biscuits, bakery, dairy products, ice creams, ... Our Iranian clients are very much interested in all kinds of flavors, liquid, powder, sweet and salted.

    Here at Iran food ingredients we meet with lots of interested customers that we couldn’t meet in any other place.

  • Harald Schefbeck
    Food Technolgist - Akras Flavours 

    AKRAS is an industrial operation specialising in distillates, extracts and essences for the foodstuffs industry. Iranian customers especially like our raw materials and beverages.

    At Iran food ingredients we mainly meet with food producers, especially beverage producers. We are here at the show to strengthen our relationship with existing customers and to meet new clients, and we have fully reached these targets.

It was the massive influx of well over 40,000 visitors and the thousands and thousands of serious B2B meetings that made this edition so successful for the 616 exhibitors from 17 countries exhibiting in 18 halls, up from 311 exhibitors last year.

The strong growth reflects positive IMF and World Bank assessments, a recovery in consumption and a strong expansion in imports and exports – see Economic outlook Iran by GTAI of 13 May 2022.

The halls were literally stormed, full of exhibitors and trade visitors engaged in business talks.

Demand for F&B ingredients rising continuously

With more than 82 million inhabitants, Iran has long been the largest food market in the Middle East. Expenditure in the F&B sector is growing steadily and F&B production ranks among the largest segments of the Iranian processing industry. 

Accordingly, the demand for food and beverage ingredients is rising continuously. So it is only natural that more and more leading international and regional ingredient suppliers take part in Iran food ingredients.

The growing interest in Iran became also apparent over the past few years when many international ingredient suppliers opened application labs in Iran for the local development of taste, scent and care solutions. With Iran food ingredients, fairtrade and Palar Samaneh are responding to the request of exhibitors for their own partial tradeshow under the umbrella of Iran agrofood.
