Testimonials Anuga FoodTec 2018

Anuga FoodTec exhibitor testimonials

Anuga FoodTec 2018 was a complete success for our group of companies. This could be seen in the increased number of qualified contacts that we were able to gather during the fair. Furthermore, the international dialogue partners were very open to the automated packaging technology solutions we presented. This is a clear, positive indicator for our expectations of an upward business trend in the food industry.

AETNA Deutschland GmbH - Christine Bley, Sales & Administration

Anuga FoodTec is a fixed date for us. We are able to reach exactly the right target group of decision makers from industries that are relevant for us. As an exhibitor, the three-year cycle is ideal because it also allows us to react to current trends.

Air Liquide Deutschland GmbH - Ansgar Rinklake, Marketing Director

We are very satisfied with the outcome of Anuga FoodTec 2018. As the market leader for filling and portioning technology, we meet interested trade visitors from the meat processing, dairy, baked goods and confectionery industries in Cologne. Due to this broad focus and the international orientation, the trade fair has become firmly established in our trade fair portfolio. A special highlight was receiving the Anuga FoodTec Gold Medal Award for our new forming system!

Albert Handtmann Maschinenfabrik GmbH & Co. KG - Karl Keller, General Manager

We used ANUGA FoodTec to present innovative developments and interesting exhibits for food applications from our product portfolio. The trade fair turned out very well for us despite the number of predominantly foreign visitors (USA, Asia, etc.). We met several customers and were able to renew contacts and talk about current applications. We were also able to generate one or the other new customer. We plan to participate again in 2021.

AxFlow GmbH - Sonja Teschke, Marketing

It couldn‘t have gone better for us in Cologne. Anuga FoodTec was a complete success and there was really a lot of activity at our trade fair stand. The trade fair brings the right decision makers to the stand.

beam GmbH - Robert Wiedemann, Managing Director

AFT is truly THE leading trade fair for the food technology industry!

BFR Systems - Vincent Capron, General Manager

AFT is an excellent international trade fair with outstanding contacts from all over the world!

Claranor S.A. - Christophe Riedel, CEO

In our opinion, participation was positive in every respect: We had promising discussions and interested trade visitors. We especially want to point out the very good exhibitor support.

Communication Construction Systems DACH - Julia Schmitt

We had a good amount of people coming to the stand and the leads were better qualified than at ACHEMA. This was defiantly the better show to attend to and we are looking at coming back in 3 years.

Cuddon Ltd. Cuddon Freeze Dry - Blair Kibblewhite, Sales & Marketing Manager

Measuring trade fair participation success can only be done after the event. With Anuga FoodTec, we have no doubt!

Estève S.A.S. - Yann Weissgerber, Director of International Sales

The Anuga FoodTec trade fair and its cross-industry, process-oriented offerings meet the needs of the market for flexible solutions, visions and innovations for the current and future requirements of the food industry. It therefore serves as a showcase for us as the leading German manufacturer of butcher and chef knives, sharpening steels, tools and sharpening machines. We were very satisfied with the outcome of the trade fair on every single day. The quality of the visitors was consistently good, they were qualified, came from all the important markets in the world and had a high level of decision-making power. We had many discussions with customers who were interested in buying and expect good post-fair business. In particular, the interest in our new tool dispensing system for safe, fast and efficient supply of goods and tool management via an RFID tool dispensing cabinet shows the visitors' fascination with innovative solutions.

Friedr. Dick GmbH & Co. KG - Petra Schleifer, Product Management

Anuga is a very important trade fair for us because we are represented worldwide in the food and beverage industry with our labelling machines. The trade fair was again a complete success this year and we are looking forward to exhibiting again at the next Anuga to present our latest developments to interested visitors.

GERNEP GmbH - Martin Hammerschmid, Managing Director

The Anuga FoodTec is the most important food related fair for NORD DRIVESYSTEMS, a supplier of drive units to over 100 industry segments. Once again the Anuga FoodTec provided an excellent forum of high quality connections with decision makers from many food segments. The Anuga FoodTec is the trend barometer of the food industry and so our expectations were surpassed in terms of quantity and quality of contacts. Especially our hygiene friendly and corrosion protected drives were in main focus of our visitors. Also we praise the effectiveness of the fair organisators to provide a seamless experience on all areas that seldom come to speech, such as cleanliness, air quality, connections and the trillion little things that went really well. Thank you Anuga FoodTec 2018!

Getriebebau NORD GmbH & Co. KG - Ulrike Bade, Senior Manager Global Trade Fairs & Events

Here at GREIF-VELOX we develop innovative solutions for efficient and hygienic bagging of food. At the Anuga FoodTec we were able to show and explain these to our valuable target group.

GREIF-VELOX Maschinenfabrik GmbH - Dr. Alexander Mildner, Head of Research and Development

All of us at GREIF-VELOX live our values: efficiency, innovation and reliability – Because of the professional organization team of the Anuga FoodTec we were able to proof our values also on the trade show. Thanks for that!

GREIF-VELOX Maschinenfabrik GmbH - Henrik Johns, Sales Engineer

The interest for new machines was clear since the first day of the exhibition. Crowds of known and potential customers visited us with astonishments for the effort and results obtained.

IMA S.p.A. - Andrea Colombo, Sales Manager

Anuga FoodTec is an irreplaceable strategic milestone for Ishida, because it puts out signals as to which segments the food industry will invest in. It is a strategic and leading trade fair that brings together all important decision makers for feed to food and offers us the nearly unique opportunity to effectively present our portfolio and our innovations. Anuga FoodTec is a must for anyone active in the food industry.

Ishida - Torsten Giese, Marketing Manager - PR & Exhibitions

The Anuga FoodTec 2018 was a great success for our company. More than 70% of trade visitors came from abroad. We got many concrete requests from all over the world, partly over up to 40 progressing cavity pumps for one project or even from the farthest Caribbean islands. Due to the excellent trade fair process we expect a strong business after the show.

JESSBERGER GmbH - Tobias Jessberger, CEO

Also in 2018 it has been proven that the Anuga FoodTec has become one of the most important German trade fairs in the field of food processing. We could present very well our machine program for delicatessen and processed cheese as well as processing of meat. With the high quantity of trade visitors and the numerous qualitative and interesting discussions we were very satisfied. Also the collaboration with the organizer Koelnmesse was very smooth. We look forward to our participation in 2021!

KARL SCHNELL GmbH & Co. KG - Claudia Kaesser, Secretary Management

No trade fair in the food industry is as valuable for us as Anuga FoodTec.

Linde AG - Silvia Henke, Head of Market Development Food

For a leading supplier of mixing technology and related processes like Lödige, food technology is one of the absolute core industries. Anuga FoodTec is therefore an absolute must for us because it has firmly established itself as the leading industry trade fair in this sector in Germany and beyond.

Lödige Process Technology - Reiner Lemperle, Sales Manager

Anuga FoodTec 2018 was a success for Logopak Systeme. The mainly curious trade visitors were enthusiastic about the launch of our new LSC 100 primary labelling system. From tofu manufacturers to water removal, customers were able to see first-hand how our machines are used (only trade visitors). Since the rush of customers calmed down considerably only on the last day, my suggestion is: One day less would be good – other than that, we see it as an important trade fair. Since we can once again see machines for the food industry and related areas.

Logopak Systeme GmbH & Co. KG - Claudia Berg, Head of Marketing

As a leading international trade fair, Anuga FoodTec is particularly important not only for the meat processing industry but the entire food sector. Participation in 2018 was once again very successful and we were able to present many innovations to our international customers and interested visitors.

Maschinenfabrik Seydelmann KG - Andreas Seydelmann, Managing Partner

For MULTIVAC, Anuga FoodTec was the most important leading trade event of 2018 because as a global trade fair it encompasses all areas of food production and processing. It gave us the opportunity to present our comprehensive line and automation expertise to many industry representatives from all over the world. Besides packaging solutions, it was also the first time we introduced portioning and slicing systems that can be integrated in automated packaging lines. Also at the centre of our trade fair presence was our new generation of thermoforming packaging machines, the MULTIVAC X-line.

MULTIVAC Sepp Haggenmüller SE & Co. KG - Tanja Nickels, Press and Public Relations Manager

Anuga FoodTec has become an essential international trade fair for NOCK with visitors from all the meat processing markets that are important for us. We were able to familiarise existing customers with new product and production technologies, especially with our poultry processing machines. Our new customer business has also improved substantially due to the many trade fair contacts. As a whole, the positive development of the past continued at Anuga FoodTec 2018. The trade fair will therefore remain a permanent part of our trade fair portfolios in the future.

NOCK Maschinenbau GmbH - Jutta Nock, Managing Director

The third participation of Pumpenfabrik Wangen GmbH at Anuga FoodTec was also a complete success. With significantly more trade visitors than in 2015, we were able to present and demonstrate the latest developments in the area of hygienic progressive cavity pumps (WANGEN HYLINE) and screw spindle pumps (WANGEN Twin NG) to the visitors and our customers. Anuga FoodTec is one of the most important international leading trade fairs in the food industry for us and we are already looking forward to participating in 2021.

Pumpenfabrik Wangen GmbH - Heiko Kaiser, Sales Manager

At Anuga Foodtec 2018, we were able to make many new contacts with customers, which also resulted in concrete project requests. In addition, our presence at the trade fair led to the final purchase decision for some existing projects. Therefore, we would certainly choose Anuga FoodTec again next time.

roTeg AG - Daniela Arndt

Anuga FoodTec was a big success for us. We were averaging 40 enquiries a day, from all sectors of the food industry.

Spice Application Systems Ltd. - Peter King, Founder

The Anuga FoodTec has proven to be the leading platform for innovative food processing once again. For a quite small company like ours we had great success getting in touch with key decision makers and potential customers. Therefore we gladly participate in the next FoodTec to introduce our company’s products.

Schnitzelmaster GmbH - Sebastian Kindermann, CEO

In our opinion, Anuga FoodTec has become even more attractive and also taken on increased importance. We experienced a greater number and high quality of visitors. We were especially pleased with the high demand from abroad. Specific customer projects were often the basis for the constructive discussions at our stand. Koelnmesse provides the perfect environment for this, especially in terms of infrastructure, support and marketing. Anuga FoodTec therefore served as the ideal platform for us to highlight the challenges in the food industry at a joint stand with our live demonstration of the Wächter packaging machines. This was very well received by the visitors. We will most certainly be exhibiting at the next Anuga FoodTec in 2021 with our own stand!

WÄCHTER PACKAUTOMATIK GmbH & Co. KG - Jörg Engelmann, Employee

The renewed growth in visitor numbers and the increasing internationality of Anuga FoodTec speak for themselves – the trade fair every three years is once again an important platform for all stakeholders in the food industry and also the Weber Group. Where else does the entire industry come together to discover innovations and interact with partners and customers? This makes Anuga FoodTec unique. We are already looking forward to 2021!

Weber Maschinenbau GmbH Breidenbach - Tobias Weber, Managing Director

After 60 years of experience in the food sector and as a manufacturer of vacuum packaging machines, we can justifiably say that for us Anuga FoodTec 2018 has established itself as the most interesting food fair in the machine sector. High-calibre interested professionals, good exhibitor support and the right frequency have all made Anuga FoodTec a key contact point where we will continue to be represented.

WEBOMATIC Maschinenfabrik GmbH - Nathalie Bonk

We felt really good about our trade fair presentation at Anuga FoodTec 2018 in Cologne. The organisation as well as the general conditions on your side were satisfactory in all areas. Also, the exhibit displays at our stand were a complete success for our company. We would like to come back for Anuga FoodTec 2021 and are already looking forward to the days in Cologne.

Wolftechnik Filtersysteme GmbH & Co.KG - Ute Heimpel, Assistant to General Manager

For the EUROFLEX team, Anuga FoodTec was an exciting trade fair with many interesting discussions. The many talks with our worldwide business partners allowed us to look at new topics and optimise them in the interest of all partners.

Ziegler-Metallgewebe - Frank Engler, Head of Sales and Marketing
