ABOUT THE FAIR

Speciality & Fine Food Fair 2021 will offer you the opportunity to meet an elite range of buyers, hoteliers, retailers, chefs, restaurateurs and many more.

The show, running for 22 years, is the go-to showcase for emerging and established brands within the artisan, F&B industries.
The event gathers more than 10,000 industry buyers and F&B professionals every year and organizes more than 50 knowledge sessions as well as great taste awards.

WHY THE UK?

The UK offers major opportunities for Lebanese companies. It is looking for new food suppliers from around the world especially for premium food products.
The fair is a second to none opportunity to launch new products, promote existing ones, meet industry leaders and share knowledge and innovations.
Also, Brexit is creating new opportunities for Lebanese suppliers in the UK market. New markets are opening for Lebanese products, with success stories witnessed this year for Lebanese suppliers across the agriculture and Agro food value chains.
