Industry Relevance

A little bit of history on IFFA – the international expo positions itself as one of the first specialist events for the meat processing industry. The inaugural edition has taken place in 1949, which also makes IFFA one of the oldest running events in the world for the meat industry. Rather than be an annual event, shows are put together once every three years, which allows for the landscape of technology and services to change fully. Speaking of technology, the product portfolio explores the entire processing chain covering slaughtering, dismembering and processing, meat labeling, meat packaging, chillers, cold meats, frozen products, heat treatment, preservatives, refrigeration and hygiene. We don’t want to forget the outstanding program, whose highlights include the IFFA Forum, IFFA Kitchen and IFFA Discovery Tours.

Who Are You Going to Meet There?

We have already said that IFFA is a champion trade fair for meat processing technology on a fully global scale and it’s time to prove it. Organizers reveal that out of more than 62,000 trade visitors 67% are foreign in origin. Roughly the same ratio can be seen with exhibitors. There are 62% of exhibitors that have come from outside Germany. Among these, the top exhibitor countries are Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, the USA, France, Denmark, Austria, the United Kingdom, China, Poland. As far as who attends professionally, there’s a rich mix of trade visitors – the butchers’ trade, food retail trade, wholesalers, importers and exporters, food and semi-luxuries industry.
