GERMANY, Frankfurt The whole sector meets in Frankfurt am Main for IFFA which started last Saturday. The world’s leading trade fair for the meat industry this year presents the record number of 1,027 exhibitors – six percent more than at the last edition (2013: 966).
The companies, which include all market leaders, come from around 50 countries and present innovations for the entire process chain: from slaughtering and processing, via packaging, to sales. On around 110,000 square metres of exhibition space (gross) in seven exhibition halls, they show innovative and creative solutions for the most demanding of all foodstuffs – meat.
The verdict after the first days was as radiant as the weather: the fair had sold 20% more tickets, the visitors were even more international – and the exhibitors were suitably satisfied as a result.
