The exhibition also featured seminar “Taste The Future of Indian Mithai & Namkeen” and two mithai competitions featuring some of India’s most well-known companies.

Federation of Sweets and Namkeen Manufacturers (FSNM) represents the whole sweets and namkeen industry, including manufacturing and allied businesses, with the primary purpose of promoting its members’ interests in tackling the myriad challenges that occur in the industry. The goal of FSNM is to improve India’s sweets and namkeen industry, which, together with other sectors, contributes to the country’s growth.

WMNC helps the industry understand the current global trends in the food business by requiring engagement with industry experts and offering a venue for the exchange of ideas. According to the reports from the organising team WMNC 2021, Jaipur broke all the previous records of number of stalls, footfall and over all response.  

It is expected that orders worth more that Rs 300 cr were given to the companies displaying their products and service in the show. This year yet again packaging materials and  machinery suppliers along with raw materials suppliers occupied most of the exhibition. Companies providing consultancy services, ITS solutions, billing softwares, and automation had significant presence in the show. 

The event’s sole purpose is to create a focal point for all industry-related solutions, including product packaging and processing technologies, packaging materials, automation, food safety systems, display and cold chain technology, raw materials and ingredients, milk and milk product processing technologies, and bakery and confectionery solutions.
