Meet our Steering Committee

We have brought together an equally passionate and experienced steering committee to help us shape our flagship show in Geneva, Vitafoods Europe, and our industry for the most sustainable future possible.

Working collaboratively, this initiative aims to validate the work that Vitafoods Europe is doing and measure its impact within the industry, ensuring it is a positive one. We are confident and excited that this synergy will drive innovative ideas to further develop our event in Geneva and our overall brand portfolio.
