ProSweets Cologne 2012: Very good participation and even more exhibition space

December 02
18:01 2011

In  just a little less than ten weeks, ProSweets Cologne 2012 will once again open its doors. So far, more than 300 exhibiting companies from 32 countries have registered for the trade fair. That means the participation level of the 2010 event – 326 suppliers from 29 countries- has already almost been equalled. From 29th January to 1st February 2012, ProSweets Cologne will take place for the fifth time. The trade fair will present the entire range of products offered by suppliers for the production, processing and packaging of confectionery. This includes the product areas for Raw Materials and Other Ingredients, Confectionery Packaging and Packaging Technology, Machines and Plants for the Confectionery Industry, and secondary segments such as Food Safety and Quality Management. And in 2012 products for the production, processing and packaging of snack items will be exhibited at ProSweets Cologne for the first time.

There are not only large numbers of returning exhibitors in all product segments, but also numerous companies that will be exhibiting for the first time. About three quarters of the exhibiting companies took part in the 2010 event, and around one fourth of the exhibitors will present their products and services in Cologne for the first time. The new exhibitors include the companies esarom gmbh, Denk Ingredients GmbH, Capol GmbH and Kahl GmbH & Co. KG in the “Ingredients” segment; Sunino S.p.A., Sirene srl and Tam Matbaacilik ve Ambalaj San. Tic. Ltd. Sti. in the “Packaging and packaging materials” segment; PFM S.p.A., CAMA1 S.p.A and BluePrint Automation in the “Packaging machines” segment; and Comas S.p.A. and Yamato Scale GmbH in the “Process technology” segment. Over 58 per cent of the exhibiting companies at ProSweets Cologne 2012 will be from abroad, making the event once again even more international (2010: 56 per cent).

And in 2012 there will again be a modest increase in the overall exhibition space occupied by ProSweets Cologne – the registrations and enlarged stand spaces booked so far correspond to growth of five per cent. The company NETZSCH-Feinmahltechnik GmbH, for example, has expanded its stand space from 15 square metres to 160 square metres and will demonstrate a complete chocolate production line at the stand with partners. The suppliers PAWI Verpackungen AG, Cavanna S.p.A. and Bühler AG also intend to significantly increase their stand spaces.

Growth has been recorded in particular in the “Raw materials/ingredients” area at ProSweets Cologne 2012, where considerably more companies will exhibit, and on more space, than at the previous event. To make it easier for visitors to find what they are looking for, the product area will be centrally located and feature distinctive signs. In addition to the new exhibitors esarom gmbh, Denk Ingredients and Kahl GmbH & Co. KG, this area will feature the companies Rum Albrecht GmbH, Chr. Hansen GmbH, Loders Croklaan b.v., GNT Europa GmbH, Mantrose UK Limited, HLR Praline, Curt Georgi GmbH & Co. KG, Cesarin S.p.A. and Roha Europe S.L.U. And the key players Norevo GmbH and Palsgaard A/S will once again exhibit at the trade fair. The “Raw materials/ingredients” product area will be rounded out by the ProSweets Cologne Conference on Ingredients, which will be presented in cooperation with Herbertz Dairy Food Service. The conference will focus on the raw materials stevia and milk and dairy products, addressing the potential they offer for innovation in confectionery production.

ProSweets Cologne 2012 will occupy Hall 10.1 at the Cologne exhibition centre.
In combination with the International Sweets and Biscuits Fair (ISM), ProSweets Cologne presents the confectionery industry’s entire value chain at one location.
