Testimonials FoodTech Expo I

What a wonder of event! It was a very rewarding experience besides, at least for me, a very well organized and effective technological novelty! Meetings well organized, very nice the possibility of visits in the booths, discoveries of new players, possible partners and potential customers. Thanks again and let's move on!

Luis Felipe Scarpa Street

It was quite impressive how the expo was organized and delivered. Very welcoming, easy to operate and the content, startups and speakers were all high quality and insightful.

Alexandre Bastos Global Innovation Director- Givaudan

The Tomorrow Foods team wanted to personally congratulate you on the FoodTech Expo! We believe it was a great show! We were impressed by the quality of the speakers and connections we were able to make. Also, you and your team did a great job at readapting the show to these unusual times. Although we would have enjoyed visiting Brasil for the expo, we were able to take full advantage of the expo all the same. Thank you very much for letting us be part of this event, which will represent an important milestone for the foodtech ecosystem in Latam.
