The cross-border event promoting a stronger food industry

In October 2022, representatives of all sectors within the food industry will gather together in Gothenburg, with a special focus on production and processes. They will set the agenda for mobilising the industry over the next decade in order to realise the goals and vision of the National Food Strategy 2030, defined by the government of Sweden.

The objective is to increase the competitiveness of food companies and to clarify challenges and opportunities that will strengthen the food industry as a whole, both in Sweden, which has many food companies, and on the global stage.

The Nordic Food Industry is organised by the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre in collaboration with industry players throughout the food processing value chain.

Growth and innovation

By acting together with the food industry’s leaders and innovators, Nordic Food Industry aims to accelerate growth, innovation and competitiveness within individual companies and the industry as a whole. Representatives from business, research, academia and politics will come together at Nordic Food Industry.

Case studies across borders

Manufacturers, suppliers, commercial organisations and academic institutions are invited to present innovative technologies, materials, products and services that will promote a sustainable food industry.


Nordic Food Industry offers everyone involved in food processing a unique opportunity to get updated on the latest technology, find solutions to their own challenges, and discuss new collaborative ventures. It provides an opportunity for dialogue in a creative and business-oriented setting.


Focus on transformation

Companies within the food industry are impacted by the paradigm shift from linear production to circular business models. This change requires multi-disciplinary skill sets. But there are many aspects that need to be addressed in new circles and from multiple perspectives for this transformation to happen. Perhaps focusing more on better exchange of information about the many solutions that already exist rather than the entirely new.

Focus areas for a sustainable food industry


Digitalisation and automation

Digitalisation and smart automation solutions can optimise product flows and create the conditions for greater competitiveness. New business models and start-ups are developing the sector and driving sustainability, efficiency and customer benefits. The event presents concrete solutions, projects, centres of excellence and R&D for digitalisation and automation processes within the food industry.


Product and process development

Sensor technologies are becoming more and more important. Nutrients and flavours must be preserved through all process stages in a high quality and resource-efficient manner. How do different elements affect each other during the manufacturing process, storage and transportation? How can you use by-products to deliver added value in the processing process? We will present ingredients and additives, safety techniques, analysis, quality management, certification, traceability and the latest technological developments for process, packaging, distribution and storage.


Smart packaging solutions and resource-efficient filling techniques

Packaging techniques, materials and equipment have a huge economic and environmental impact. And the right filling technology can have a big impact on efficiency and the resource-efficiency of the value chain. Unused space in packaging leads to unnecessary logistics costs and causes wastage with an adverse effect on the environment.

Smart packaging design means reduced wastage and lower carbon dioxide emissions at the distribution stage. Nordic Food Industry will feature solutions to increase recycling rates and resource efficiency, with many examples of how poor packaging can be replaced by attractive  and cost-effective solutions using materials that are environmentally smart.


Questions that need answers:

What needs to be done in order for Sweden to become one of the world's leading food producers?

How does the rapid technology development affect competitiveness?

What is the cut-off point for investment in new or conventional technology?

How can the food industry follow and utilise trends in digitalisation and automation for increased production efficiency?

How can it achieve sustainable production with increased productivity while also driving down costs?
How can we increase the rate of improvement in the food industry?

How can we reduce wastage of raw materials and make better use of by-products?

How can we optimise the use of production facilities?

How can we reduce the use of fossil fuels in production?

How will we develop smart and sustainable packaging solutions that reduce both packaging and food waste?

What is needed in order to reduce transport emissions?

What must we do to make logistics more sustainable: increased fill levels, more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly vehicles, environmentally adapted fuels and economical driving modes.

Nordic Food Industry takes place in parallel with Logistik & Transport, the Nordic region’s leading event for logistics, warehousing and transport solutions. It provides a unique environment for exhibiting and sharing innovative services and solutions specifically for the food industry.

Why exhibit?

* Improve your brand profile

* Find new business opportunities

* Meet customers who are in an active buying process

* Launch and exhibit new products and solutions, live

* Do more business in less time!

The food industry faces huge challenges, but the opportunities are even greater – through collaboration, willingness to develop and smart transformation to meet the needs of the future. An exchange of ideas and networking across the entire production and process value chain are needed to get the best possible return on the investment and development initiatives being made in the industry. Consequently there is demand for a single meeting place bringing together business people and researchers. An event where the entire industry can share insights and test drive future solutions through creative meeting formats and practical activities.

Safe to visit - Safe to exhibit

The safety and health for visitors and employees is our top priority. In order to offer you the best possible conditions when you visit us, we have adapted our facilities and adopted new routines according to prevailing circumstances. Our meeting place is vast which makes it easy to keep a distance.
