Show organizer Expo Business Communications BV, based in Breda, the Netherlands, started the “Free From Functional Foods & Health Ingredients Expo” (FFFHI) in 2013. Founded in 2007 by Ronald Holman, the company closed a gap in the trade show business for food and ingredients with the first “Free From Foods Expo” in Freiburg (Southern Germany) in 2013. In step with the evolution of the Free From sector, Expo Business Communications expanded the event concept with the introduction of a separate ingredients element in 2014. In 2016, a new functional foods zone was added. Free From Food will also take place in Dubai on 19-20 September 2023 and Bangkok as Healthy Food Asia on 5-6 July 2023.
