Resource efficiency will be the primary focus of Anuga FoodTec 2018, the leading international supplier fair for the food and beverage industry, which will be held in Cologne, Germany from 20 to 23 March 2018. Around 1,700 suppliers from more than 50 countries will be presenting their new products for the production and packing of all types of food on 140,000 square metres of exhibition space.

The comprehensive range of exhibits will once again this year also be accompanied by a multi-faceted event and congress programme featuring target group-specific lectures, conferences, forums, guided tours, special events and networking events. As usual, the German Agricultural Association (DLG) is responsible for the professional organisation of the congress programme.

Optimise production processes, reduce the energy and water consumption, minimise the loss of foodstuffs as far as possible – the half-day opening conference of Anuga FoodTec, which is completely dedicated to the theme resource efficiency, demonstrates this and much more. The speakers are the internationally renowned experts including Prof Dr Michael Braungart (Scientific Manager of the Hamburg Environmental Institute (HUI), Hamburg); Prof Dr Ruud Huirne (Food & Agri Director, the Netherlands, Rabobank), Prof Pierre Pienaar (President of the World Packaging Organisation) and Prof Dr Alexander Sauer (Director, Institute for Energy Efficiency in Production EEP, University of Stuttgart). The opening conference is scheduled to take place at 2:00 pm on 20 March, in the Europasaal of the Congress Centre East.

Diversity Guaranteed: The Expert Forums of Anuga FoodTec

From food and beverage technology, to packing, through to current and future trends – the expert forums of Anuga FoodTec offer numerous opportunities for gaining new information and for exchanging views with national and international experts. This year’s leading theme ‘Resource Efficiency’ is both the focus of the forum and the opening conference. Two further focuses of the expert forums are ‘Themes, Trends, Technologies – that are moving the food industry’ as well as ‘Food Ingredients’. An overview of the expert forums can be found under the following link: http://www. anugafoodtec.com/aft/trade-fair/events/Meeting-Points_Forums/index.php

In the course of the tours, selected exhibitors will present and explain their products, machines and functions live on-site. Interested visitors can take part in different tours daily. The themes of the guided tours include among others robotics, Industry 4.0, more flexibility in the filling and packing technology, meat and dairy technologies as well as innovative packing materials.

Plenty on the Programme

Anuga FoodTec 2018 exhibitors will present their companies, their product range and/or innovations to a broad trade audience in the Speakers Corner. A different, exciting theme is on the agenda every 30 minutes throughout the entire duration of the trade fair. The Speakers Corner can be found in Passage 4/5. Furthermore, the trade visitors can look forward to special events like the ‘Robotik-Pack-Line’ or a special exhibition on the theme of ‘Packaging Design’. The numerous live presentations of the exhibitors round off the Anuga FoodTec experience perfectly.
