An exhibition that provided solutions, suggestions and answers
Satisfying its visitors’ high expectations but also the high standards it had set since its first announcement, FOODTECH managed to present to its visitors —through its 200 exhibitors— all the new products and technological developments covering the entire spectrum of the production process, from the production of safe food, to the processing, packaging, storage and handling. Here, visitors had the opportunity to find everything they wanted in order to improve their business’s line of production, all the answers to their needs, and real solutions to the issues they faced in their companies. The statements of visitors—all of whom expressed their enthusiasm for the quality of exhibitors while stating that their industry needed such an exhibition— and the number of business contacts and discussions we saw happening throughout the exhibition, were the reason of FOODTECH’s great success.

What won the impressions was the quality characteristics of visitors, as numerous owners and executives (factory managers, production engineers, quality control officers, R&D managers, Logistics managers, procurement managers etc) from the productive and commercial businesses of the Food & Beverage industry were able to see up close a comprehensive range of products and equipment targeted at businesses that want to create integrated food and beverage processing plants, machinery and materials for primary and secondary packaging, and ingredients for the production of safe food. They machinery and equipment they saw were straight out of….the future, so they saw how they could introduce their businesses to the 4th industrial revolution, if they haven’t done so already. Lastly, through the workshops that took place on the stage of Hall 2, visitors had the opportunity to “study” up close the sector’s successful case studies that can serve as models for them, network with the industry’s professionals, and exchange interesting views with speakers and participants alike.
