A new, virtual, theme-based Sourcing Festival is being launched by Saladplate, the premier international wholesale marketplace for sourcing food, beverages and hospitality products globally. The online company has partnered with leading food and hospitality events organised by Informa Markets in the region - FHA-Food & Beverage, Food & Hotel Malaysia (FHM), as well as Food, Hotel & Tourism Bali (FHTB).
From October to December 2020 the Sourcing Festival will underline speciality product themes from select countries and regions. The event will kick off with Fine & Specialty Food, Wine & Beer, Fruit Juice & Soft Drinks, Coffee & Tea, Health Food, Disposables, Confectioneries & Snacks, Chocolates & Cocoa and Bread/Cake & Baking Ingredients.
In parallel with the selected product themes, the Sourcing Festival will also have dedicated country themes to showcase products from selected countries. Suppliers from either product or country themes can promote their latest products and connect with interested buyers through enhanced business matchmaking and networking features such as product demonstrations and real-time chats.
“Since the launch of Saladplate.com in May, we have created a crucial digital bridge between worldwide suppliers and Asian buyers in the Food & Hospitality industry, during a time when cross-border travel is virtually impossible,” said Dave Chan, Founder Saladplate.com, Vice President Digital Business & Advanced Analytics, Informa Markets.
All attendees can also register for content webinars led by industry leaders to gather insights into a wide range of topics.
“The overwhelmingly positive responses from the community encouraged us to continue to develop new ways for companies to search for and source food, beverages and hospitality products from business partners around the world. The upcoming Sourcing Festival is a new sourcing format built on feedback from our customers and I very much look forward to seeing another successful experience for all participants,” concluded Chan. Saladplate is the premier international wholesale marketplace for sourcing food, beverages and hospitality products globally.
