The Allergy & Free From Business Event is the only B2B event dedicated to bringing together buyers, specifiers and influencers across the Allergy world within retail, hospitality, wholesale, healthcare and manufacturing focusing on the free-from market in the UK.​

The free-from sector, and in particular food, has witnessed significant growth in recent years, driven by evolving consumer requirements, dietary restrictions, and a heightened focus on health and wellness. As the rise of consumers with allergies has become apparent, so too has the shift in providing for this emerging market on a much larger and more effective scale than previously. ​

There has been a sustained and continued rise of allergies and consumers following a free-from diet, and it is showing no signs of slowing. Vitality-Pro reported that it is believed 1/3 of the UK population, equating to around 20 million people now live with an allergy, with 5 million requiring specialist care to the severity of their allergies. Ongoing research suggests that allergies will be prevalent in 50% of Europe’s population by 2025.​

If you need knowledge, information and products for your business or you can provide your free from products to this market, to ensure that you are meeting the needs of customers who have allergies and intolerances, then this is the event for you. ​
