Event Update

Anuga FoodTec's 2027 edition will occur as a hybrid trade fair and is scheduled between 23.02.2027-26.02.2027. The popular food packaging industry fair will take place at the Koelnmesse in Cologne, Germany. Currently, the venue does not have strict Covid-19 safety measures due to the removal of domestic coronavirus guidelines on 02.04.2022. However, attendees will be highly advised to follow recommendations such as maintaining a 1.5 metre social distance. They must also note that they need to present 3G entry documents upon arrival in Germany due to the ongoing travel restrictions.

Why Your Visit Is Worth It 

Anuga FoodTec doesn’t require frequent investment, because it’s held once every three years. It gives exhibitors a lot of time to consider how they’re going to approach their exhibit. The costs are easily returned in terms of quality of sales leads. Anuga FoodTec is a massive B2B platform and unlocks your full potential as an exhibitor. Organisers point out that each edition brings in more people than the one before: 

  • 140,000 square metres of exhibition space were reserved;
  • 1,656 exhibitors from 48 countries demonstrated their products;
  • 50,600+ trade visitors attended;
  • 32,000+ of those trade visitors came from 152 countries; 

Industry Relevance 

As mentioned, Anuga FoodTec runs every three years at Koelnmesse in Cologne, Germany and it’s this frequency that allows each edition to be entirely its own thing as technology has had time to build on top of its previous achievements. Visiting gives you access to the entire generation of new solutions in the entire industry. 

The expo has been held since 1996 and in that time, it has grown in importance with the portfolio coming to include auxiliary materials, biotechnology, food safety, packaging aids, control technology, storage facilities, conveyors, data processing, logistics and refrigeration. With just so much to explore, it can be difficult to find the right audience, but that’s where you can rely on the built-in support systems. Be sure to add yourself as a stop on the guided tours held every edition or any of the special shows. 

Even better, you can sign up for matchmaking meetings as part of Sustainable Foodtech Solutions – an event where you can sit down in sessions and enjoy meetings one on one with high-calibre buyers. That’s one of the best ways to get noticed and generate targeted sales leads. 

Who Are You Going to Meet?

Anuga FoodTec has a very specific exhibitor profile. As one of the leading platforms within food and beverage for procurement, it draws in manufacturers of machinery and suppliers of tech and equipment. Suppliers of packaging materials also constitute a healthy section of the exhibitors. 

It’s within the visitor portion that we see more diversity – butchers and bakers, grocers, R & D personnel, decision makers, general managers, production and operations managers, construction, production, quality control, maintenance, purchasing, marketing and distribution. The variety in terms of professional backgrounds is what makes Anuga FoodTec a go-to meeting place. You get to interact with skilled trade as well as people with real purchasing power. 

Kärntnermilch, FRUCTUS, Micarna SA, Steiner Ukraine, Ecofrost SA, Eptech, Jain Farm Fresh Foods Limited and VEMEXIM are only some of the brands you can hope to encounter at the trade fair. These are companies based in Ukraine, Germany, Italy, France. You can easily say that Anuga FoodTec is the beating heart of the European food processing industry. But after all, there are over 150 countries in attendance. This gives you access to Central and Far East Asia, the Middle East, North America and North Africa. 

The Additional Value of Attending 

Knowledge sits at the core of Anuga FoodTec. Organisers have created one of the most informative support programmes in the world. No matter what your sector is, you’ll find a forum or event that’s specifically tailored to your interests and needs. 

Take, for example, The Functional Food forum, which explores food beyond just something we eat to fuel our bodies. In recent years, companies and consumers have been interested in how food affects the human body. Digitalisation and the boom of wearable medical devices have opened new doors to understanding our relationship to food. 

Another important forum is Next Generation FoodTech. It’s about the food systems of tomorrow and how to adjust food production and processing to meet demands in a time of climate crisis. Hear groundbreaking ideas and learn about new perspectives from top experts in their fields.
