Partnership should lead to technical workshop for the juice industry at the show.

Anuga FoodTec and the International Fruit and Vegetable Juice Association (IFU) have agreed on an extensive partnership.

The package of measures encompasses both communicative aspects as well as an increased presence at Anuga FoodTec 2018, March 20-23, 2018.

The aim of the cooperation is to offer especially representatives from the fruit juice industry an attractive platform and create added value at the leading supplier trade fair for the food and beverage industry in Cologne.

Among other things, the cooperation foresees the execution of a technical workshop by the IFU at Anuga FoodTec 2018. The motto of the technical workshop is “For the Juice Industry. From the Industry Experts.


It offers a forum for up to 20 presentations by leading companies, laboratories and research institutes, which not only offer an exchange between CEOs and the senior management, but above all between employees from the research and development, quality assurance and supply chain management departments.

The themes addressed will include among others production, microbiology, quality and CSR. The edge that the industry would be able to achieve with genetically modified organisms was one of the most hotly discussed themes in 2017 and a continuation of this theme is also planned for 2018. Furthermore, the IFU will be represented with an exhibition stand at Anuga FoodTec in Cologne.

Anuga FoodTec will also be present at selected events of the IFU. In terms of communications, the partners will support each other via the respective channels in the form of a mutual content exchange as well as carrying out sponsoring campaigns of individual formats.

It is also planned mid-term to place events of the IFU in the immediate environment of further trade fairs from Koelnmesse’s Global Competence in Food and FoodTec field of competence
