IFFA – The No. 1 for the meat industry – opened its doors till 9 May 2019. As the sector’s foremost innovation platform, IFFA brings together all players from the industry, retail trade and butcher's trade in Frankfurt am Main. Thanks to its clear focus, the world’s leading trade fair for the sector is unrivalled: everything revolves around the most valuable of all foodstuffs – meat.

Ensuring sustainability in the handling of resources and using energy-efficient processes along the entire value chain are the central challenges of our time. Intelligent control and automation technology, economical drives, compressors, fans or pumps are some of the classic solutions for increasing energy and resource efficiency. Smart sensor technology, control and application software, the networking of machines and plants, control monitoring and implementation of the principles of Industry 4.0 offer further potential for saving time, manpower and scarce resources. The best practices showcased at the fair provide trade visitors with valuable suggestions and decision-making aids.

Companies in the meat industry can save time, resources and costs by ensuring optimally coordinated production processes. The solution lies in minimising organisational losses caused by set-ups, maintenance, cleaning and product changeovers. This enables high production times to be maintained and efficiency levels to be raised. Optimised production requires robotic and automation solutions that can be used in the individual value creation stages. Modular system concepts allow maximum flexibility, while intuitive operating systems ensure smooth processes.
