The organizer has increased its exhibition space in 2018 up to 140,000 square meters (+8%) in Halls 4.2, 5.2, 6 to 9, 10.1 and, for the first time, Hall 10.2.

Companies from more than 50 countries will present new products at the show. In addition, a wide-ranging congress and comprehensive event program are on tap.

With exhibition segments spotlighting food processing, packaging, safety and analytics, ingredients, services and solutions, Anuga FoodTec covers all aspects of food production. Exhibitors will present solutions for all branches of the food industry – from the fruit and vegetable sectors, to ready meals, dairy, meat and seafood, to pasta, oils, fats and more.

Traditionally, process technology is the most strongly represented section at the trade fair. Almost all of the market leaders and renowned companies from the industry will be exhibiting. In Halls 7, 8 and in parts of Hall 9, the focus will be on the theme "Food Packaging," and thus also on packaging machines, packing materials, automation and control technology. In Hall 5.2, visitors will find loads of information about food safety and quality management.
