It is that time of the year again

20160531eh02It is that time of the year again. Our global hospitality show, Food Hospitality World, a much awaited event in South India’s hospitality market will bring to Bengaluru from June 9 – 11, 2016, an exciting new showcase of products for Indian hospitality. The number of exhibitor participation is more than 200, and visitor footfall is expected to exceed 5,000 people.

FHW has always been a dynamic platform for knowledge sharing and insightful discussions. The Hospitality Think Tank panel discussion on ‘How Technology is Impacting Hospitality’ will see General Managers from leading hotels in Bengaluru discuss the technology-driven transformation in various aspects of the hospitality industry in India. The Hospitality Knowledge Exchange on ‘Banqueting: The Game Changer’ will see F&B heads/ managers talk about the evolving trends in banqueting, a major revenue generator for hotels. An exciting new inclusion this year is a competition for mixologists, which will showcase the best skills of those who hold fort at Bengaluru’s favourite watering holes.

Our cover story this issue focuses on the demand for exotic fruits and vegetables. With  growing demand for international cuisines, hoteliers and F&B managers are happy that these exotic produce can be now easily sourced from local farmers who have taken up cultivation despite some challenges. According to the Indian Cultural Agricultural Research (ICAR), the exotic vegetable market is growing at the rate of 15-20 per cent per annum and is increasing day by day. The last two decades have seen more and more Indian farmers taking up production of these fruits and vegetables. Presently a group of 100 farmers in the country are cultivating these exotic vegetables in different villages. This is an interesting new development – how new age demand is creating a profitable source of revenue for farmers.
