Safeguard food production. Protect the environment and climate. Promoting digitization.  

Food security, sustainability, flexibility - These topics concern the industry. In the future, intelligent technology and efficient processes will have to enable increased productivity, find answers to changing consumer behaviour, and protect the environment and climate in the process.   

Responsibility in the food supply chain  

The main theme of the Anuga FoodTec’s programme is "Responsibility" ( top theme Responsibility ). At the main stage you find cross-industry and sustainable innovations. The concept of sustainability meets the responsibility to drive innovation and to operate responsibly in all processes of the value chain. Long-term success is promised by holistic approaches: from the supplier industry to global raw material procurement, packaging as well as production, logistics and energy or water management.  

New formats  

To this end, we invite you to look beyond the confines of your own industry and promote interdisciplinary exchange. In addition to the classic lectures, you can become an active part of the programme and contribute your expertise: 

  • Deep Dive
    Immerse oneself: Keynote presentations showcasing future technologies, provide best practice examples, state of science and how-to tips.
  • Open Expert Stage
    Have a say on the stage: Participants can take the free seat on the podium and join the discussion at eye level with the experts.
  • Science Slam
    Explain complex topics entertaining: the slammers present their research in a short and scientifically correct way. The audience decides who wins.
  • Content Pro vs. Contra
    Open up a new perspective: the competition on polarizing topics between two experts is evaluated by the audience.

Future of food 

Discuss innovative technologies with the experts. Exchange ideas with stakeholders from the entire value chain. Ask your questions: How does cultured meat become climate-neutral? How can production use resources carefully? What is the impact of climate change on food safety? What digital tools are there for process optimization? And a lot more. 

Network and act directly. At the Main Stage you can expect solutions: sustainable packaging, alternative proteins, transparent supply chains, optimized energy and water management, automation, robotics, digitalisation and artificial intelligence.
