Federal Minister of Food, Cem Özdemir, to open Anuga FoodTec 2022

Boasting around 1,000 suppliers, the world's leading trade fair for the food and beverage industry will be the most important industry meeting point in the spring of 2022.

Cem Ödzemir, Federal Minister of Food and Agriculture, will open Anuga FoodTec, the international suppliers fair for the food and beverage industry, on 26 April 2022. In the scope of his visit, the Federal Minister will tour the trade fair together with representatives from the organisers of the event, Koelnmesse, and from the DLG (German Agricultural Society) as the event's expert and industry sponsor. An opening conference will be held after the tour. Boasting around 1,000 suppliers from over 40 countries, Anuga FoodTec is the world's leading trade fair for the food and beverage industry. It takes place every three years in Cologne. In 2021, the event had to be postponed until spring 2022 and is thus being staged as a "special edition" from 26.-29.04. In addition to the physical trade fair, the digital platform, Anuga FoodTec@home, will extend the networking and information options. Anuga FoodTec is accompanied by a first-class congress and specialised programme. With its broad, cross-process approach, Anuga FoodTec covers all aspects of the production of food and beverages. The focus lies on innovations and solutions for the entire value chain - from process technology, to filling and packaging technologies, through to food safety, from packing materials, to digitalisation, through to intralogistics.
