Taking place from 21-23 June 2016, Hi China will be co-located with 6 other events, including Fi Asia-China, Healthplex and Nutraceutical China (HNC) and CPhI & P-Mec China. The show features multiple opportunities to discover the Chinese and Pan-Asian product innovations, market trends and industry regulations. Together the shows will cover over 200,000 sqm, share 3500+ exhibitors and will be attended by more than 65,000 trade visitors from around the world.

From " Fi Asia-China" to "Hi China" 

In 2016, in line with market trends and due to the increased number of health ingredients exhibitors, the event is now being led by the Health ingredients brand (Hi China) but will still feature the sister event Food ingredients Asia-China (FiAC). With living standards improving, consumers are paying more attention to what they are eating, which has led to an increase in the demand for nutraceuticals, dietary supplements and functional foods. This in turn has led to the rapid increase in the health ingredients market.

According to China Food Newspaper, China's import market for nutraceuticals has reached 1.2 billion dollars. Take the largest Australian nutraceutical brand "BLACKMORES" as an example. China contributes to 40% of its revenue. Some experts predict that the Chinese health industry will increase annually by 25%.  It is due to this large predicted growth in the Chinese market that we have decided to focus on our health ingredients brand, Hi China.

Hi China 2016 will be held alongside HNC and CPhI, two of the largest events for the nutraceutical and pharma industry. Across the different shows we aim to connect the entire health industry in one place, over three days.

Top exhibitors that will be ready to do business and showcase their latest products and innovations include leading companies Enzymotec, Naturex, GNT, INGREDIA, Genmont, Hleks, Health Love, BIOSEARCH and many more.
