This year’s IFFA, which is coming up between May 4-9, will have a focus on solutions for the safe, efficient and economic production of meat and meat foodstuffs. Suppliers of all sizes present will put on display a comprehensive spectrum of products for companies from big to small, from industrial meat-processing operations to individual butchers.
The organizers expect more than 1,000 firms from around 50 countries to attend the event to present innovations and trends for the entire processing chain of the meat industry. Altogether, trade visitors come to Frankfurt from around 140 different countries.
Exhibitors will put on display a wide range of machines and equipment for various processes including slaughtering, dismembering and processing, including boiling, smoking, roasting and baking, as well as present their latest products and developments.
The event will also focus on the area of smart packing and weighing technology. The continuing popularity of convenience and take-away articles has been stimulating the demand for packaged meat and sausage products and, and at IFA participants will be able to witness a cross-section of relevant packaging technology, from the packing lines, via labeling and packing materials, to weighing, measuring and testing technology.
Moreover, this year, exhibitors of spices, additives, and casing for making meat foodstuffs have been moved to a new location in Hall 12. For more on what to expect from the show, also read our exclusive interview with IFFA’s Head of Brand Management, Johannes Schmid-Wiedersheim.
