International food fair ‘Bite Copenhagen’ opens with 150+ inspiring exhibitors, speakers and food frontrunners

Press Release August 29, 2018

When the international food fair 'Bite Copenhagen' opens at Bella Center Copenhagen this week, it will be with a record number of exhibitors on board. Hence, the many professionals and food lovers expected to visit what has already become a key hub for innovation, gastronomy, food tech, social responsibility, entrepreneurship, uncompromising quality, new products, samples and new knowledge in the food industry - can expect to meet more than 150 highly innovative exhibitors, inspirational speakers, and engaged food frontrunners from near and far.


Bite Copenhagen primarily aims at professionals seeking inspiration and news about the latest development in the food industry. However, a selected number of tickets have been earmarked for curious 'foodies' interested in experiencing the many Danish and international exhibitors, speakers and frontrunners within the industry, who will serve up their creative ideas, thoughts and products in gastronomy, food, artificial intelligence, social responsibility, organic products, sustainability, protein sources, packaging, superfoods and much more under the headline: 'Setting Tomorrow's Table'.

Bite Copenhagen is also affiliated with the Ministry of Environment and Food of Denmark's international World Food Summit - Better Food for More, and runs in close collaboration with the Danish food industry and the recurring Copenhagen Cooking & Food Festival. New this year is the possibility to attend the so-called 'World Food Summit - Bella Center Copenhagen' and thus, to experience part of the international food summit staged at the Bella Center Copenhagen alongside Bite Copenhagen.
