India has been named as partner country for this year’s edition of Anuga, the largest professional trade fair for food and beverages. From 7 to 11 October 2017, Indian suppliers will not only present the wide variety of Indian food and beverages, but will also demonstrate their competence and efficiency in the international trade and food service sectors.
“We are very much looking forward to the collaboration with the Ministry of Food Processing Industries in the scope of Anuga. The trade fair offers the Indian food and beverage sector an excellent projection and development area,” noted Katharina C. Hamma, COO, Koelnmesse GmbH.
Over the past years, the number of exhibitors at Anuga, who come from India, has increased continually. Whereas in 2005, only 45 exhibitors from India exhibited at Anuga, in the year 2015 the amount was 135 Indian exhibitors. The Ministry of Food Processing Industries (MOFTI) – the Government of India – is responsible for the partner country activities of India at the leading international trade fair for food and beverages. The Ministry will among others participate with a delegation at the Opening Ceremony on 7 October 2017.
Around 7,200 exhibitors from 100 countries as well as 160,000 trade visitors from all over the world are expected to attend the 34th Anuga.
