About the event

No changes have been announced for IFFA 2022. The international meat processing trade show is currently its early planning stages with dates set for May 14th – May 19th, 2022. Messe Frankfurt Exhibition GmbH intends to keep the upcoming IFFA as a live event, because no other alternative can achieve the success of trade shows and exhibitions. Hopes are that by then the coronavirus pandemic will be under control and larger events will be allows on the territory of Germany. The exhibition grounds at Messe Frankfurt are expected to comply with government regulations. You can expect extensive COVID-19 protective measures put in place. 

Calling Card 

Consult with peers on standards and best practices in the meat industry at IFFA and discover all the latest innovations and equipment concerning meat-processing. The international trade show operates out of Frankfurt, Germany and arrives every three years at Messe Frankfurt. Editions are typically held in May and programming lasts for six days in total. What’s so special about IFFA is that not only does it offer visitors access to the entire processing chain, but also keeps its finger on the pulse of the industry. What this means for IFFA is a brand new chapter. IFFA 2022 brings in a new focus – alternative proteins. The market for meat alternatives has grown to a point where it can no longer be ignored, which is why IFFA is making space for the pioneers in this sector. 

Business Potential

As we mentioned, the entire processing chain can be observed at IFFA. This includes everything - slaughtering technology, roasting, frying, baking and deep-frying equipment, packing equipment, transport and storage systems, weighing systems, process control, foodstuff safety. Now there’s also going to be production and processing of plant-based products as well as products made from cell cultured meat. These new additions will only bring in new visitors. Habasit Group, HEMA, LASKA, Loma Systems, Unitherm Food Systems and Denico Food Ingredients has exhibited in the past. Who attends IFFA? Trade visitors come from all over the retail sectors. There’s, of course, representatives from the food and the semi-luxuries industry and butchers’ trade, but also food retail trade, wholesalers, importers and exporters. The majority of buyers happen to be based in Europe, but there’s growing interest from Asia and Northern America.
