IFE Worldwide introduces Market Reports

7th August 2008

Invaluable Market Reports providing companies with detailed information as to the best route into specific international markets are now available to companies participating in the IFE Worldwide Portfolio of food and drink exhibitions.

Christopher Newton, Chairman of Montgomery International states that;

“Companies looking to sell their food and drink products into emerging markets for the first time, are often not that sure as to the best route to take. The IFE Worldwide Market Reports try to guide these organisations, giving them critical information that will keep them ahead of their competition.”

The Reports cover the trade environment, economic performance, food consumption trends, export opportunities, the route to the retail market, the route to the foodservice sector, key regulations and tariffs and useful tips and advice. Exhibitors can utilise valuable information, such as this extract from the Hungarian Report;

“An upward trend in FMCG sales is anticipated due to accelerating GDP growth as well as lower 5% inflation projected for 2008.”

The Market Reports were produced for IFE Worldwide by Food From Britain and currently are available for Hungary, Poland, India and Russia.

A new Market Report to support the Hungarian edition carries information on the surrounding countries including Czech Republic, Slovenia, Croatia, Slovakia and Romania. Valuable economic and trend information along with facts and figures are featured.

Over the last 5 years IFE exhibitions for the food and drink sector have been successfully introduced into some of the fastest growing emerging markets. Significant numbers of international companies with a huge variety of products and services have used them to get a toe hold into new markets.

“IFE is a leading brand for food and drink exhibitions worldwide,” says Iona Smith, Senior Project Manager for the IFE Worldwide Portfolio. “The Market Reports are another initiative we have taken to give our clients a service they will get from no other equivalent event.”
