Process automation, sophisticated machine designs, the development of vegetable products – in this Quarterly on the Anuga FoodTec 2021 we have once again summarised some of the innovations of leading international suppliers of the food and beverage industry. And we also look at what innovations the Fraunhofer researchers have to offer for the food sector this summer.
We hope you enjoy reading all this.
