A muffin baking mix without industrial sugar for children, a vegan organic dough from the bottle for pan-fried dishes of all kinds, a rosé gin with fruity ingredients, a newly invented date praline, sun-ripened fruits as dried snacks and toppings: Whoever is here through the “FOOD.Start .ups “strolling through FOOD & LIFE, gets a good impression of the current food trends and market innovations.
Together with the cooperation partner StartinFOOD, the new FOOD & LIFE NEWCOMER AWARD 2021 will be presented on the Saturday of the fair.
