The 2015 exposition features 19 salons. Each salon is devoted to a particular sector of the industry allowing to cover all the food industry branches and reveal its key tendencies. As an example, the EcoBioProducts Salon will get its further development. The international EcoBioSalon made its debut at Prodexpo 2014. Its participants showcased organic products certified up to official national and international standards.

In 2015 we expect another premier. Taking into account the current market needs Prodexpo creates a new Pet Food Salon. The subject meets the needs of end consumers who prefer to save their time and buy food for themselves and their pets in the same supermarket.
