AMSTERDAM, February 15, 2011 - In 2011, the Food ingredients portfolio continues its geographical
expansion and develops further with the industry it serves. Economic
recovery, investment in emerging markets and focus on health characterise the
industry this year. Consequently, the Fi portfolio has taken upon new
challenges launching new shows in the Philippines and China, and investing
further in educational content and special features at the different trade

2011 is also an important milestone for the Fi portfolio with the 25th

of successful operations and strong relationship with the industry. The
exhibition is almost fully booked and will feature all key ingredient
manufacturers. More than 20,000 food professionals are expected to attend the

ingredients trade show in the Philippines, which will be co-located with the
