About the event

COVID-19 Update

Food and drink industry stakeholders will be glad to hear that the 2024 edition of Anuga FoodTec will be pushing through. The official dates are set between March 19th – March 22nd. Koelnmesse GmbH is working hard to create a successful live edition, which benefits everyone in the industry. Messe Cologne will once again serve as the host location. While at present Germany does not feature domestic Covid-19 restrictions, attendees will be advised to maintain several recommendations, such as wearing surgical masks in congestion situations. They also will have to present 3G entry documents upon arrival in the country due to the travel restrictions.

Calling Card 

Anuga FoodTec caters to the needs of the food and beverage industry across the entire processing chain. It’s a business platform that’s proven itself as a source of inspiration, business partnerships and cutting-edge innovations in food production and packaging. The international trade fair is based in Cologne, Germany and editions are scheduled at a three-year interval, which makes every show unforgettable in its own way. Every Anuga FoodTec is decidedly different from each other, which gives trade visitors ample opportunity to research new technology and make big purchases. Programming takes place at Koelnmesse in late April and lasts for four days in total. The industry is one to grow and evolve rapidly over time, which makes Anuga FoodTec essential. 

Business Potential 

Emphasis at Anuga FoodTec falls on the full processing chain. You start the journey at ingredients and auxiliary materials, then moves through process technology, filling and packaging technology to refrigeration, conveying, transport and storage facilities and logistics. Of course, there are many more product categories on display. It’s not a surprise then to see a great diversity in terms of the trade visitors that attend. Alongside higher management and employees involved in research & development, you will also discover large-scale butchers and bakeries, food trade and buyers from the pet food industry. A look at the exhibitor catalog shows exhibitors from Argentina (Comasa), the Czech Republic (Dukane IAS, s.r.o.), Canada (Petro-Canada Lubricants Inc.), the Netherlands (Clondalkin Flexible Packaging) and Japan (Nakakin Co. Ltd.).

Did You Know? 

Anuga FoodTec is quick to respond to emerging trends. One such trend is food analytics, which is quickly expanding in importance due to the rising standards for food and operational safety. As a result, Anuga FoodTec launched the Food Analytics zone, where experts and targeted visitors can have productive conversations with exhibitors. A hands-on approach is important at the trade fair and buyers have access to a series of Live Labs, where they can examine products and technologies in action. Each edition has its own dynamic program populated with special shows like the Robotik Pack Line and high-value lectures and talks held at the Speakers Corner. One way exhibitors can increase foot traffic to their booths is to sign up for one of the many guided tours.

Previous Editions


The pandemic has demonstrated to many event organisers the significance of virtual offerings when face-to-face meetings are difficult to conduct. Anuga FoodTec has learned this valuable lesson, resulting in the 2022 trade show will be a hybrid event. Anuga FoodTec @home was a digital service that supplemented the live trade show and facilitated networking, particularly for participants who were unable to attend the event in person. There were numerous features for both exhibitor companies and trade visitors. They could view expert lectures, start-up pitches, corporate and product presentations, and live events. Organisers identified an acceptable way to relaunch the sector at a time when international travel was impossible. The 2022 edition of Anuga FoodTec highlighted the role of digitisation as a solution to logistical concerns. The event was held between April 26th and April 29th, 2022. The edition attracted 25,000 visitors from more than 120 nations and 1,034 exhibitors from 44 countries. Approximately 57 percent of the visitors represented countries other than Germany.
