More International than Ever! That was Anuga 2023

Days filled with valuable discussions, exciting presentations, trends, and innovations have come to an end – the Anuga 2023, the world’s leading and largest trade fair for food and beverages, was an overwhelming success and once again reaffirmed its position as the industry’s number one. We are particularly delighted with the impressive increase in trade visitors and exhibitors from around the world.

With approximately 140,000 industry visitors from 200 countries and around 7,900 exhibitors from 118 nations, the world’s leading trade fair exceeded all forecasts. The international representation among exhibitors reached an impressive 94%, and on the visitor side, it achieved a record level of 80% percent. This solidifies Anuga as more international than ever and reaffirms its continued success among global food exhibitions.

Sustainable Growth in Focus

A central theme of Anuga 2023 was sustainability and responsible resource management. Under the motto “Sustainable Growth,” innovative solutions and technologies were discussed, ranging from optimizing supply chains to fair food production. This underscored the industry’s clear commitment to sustainable development and its willingness to face global challenges.

Other highlights included Anuga Horizon with the Anuga Horizon Conference. Expert panels and side events by organizations such as EIT Food and UNIDO complemented the program, offering exciting perspectives and solutions.

Food Community as a collective in a time when the world of food is becoming increasingly global, and the importance of sustainability and healthy eating is on the rise, it is crucial that we connect to find solutions together. Our hashtag “#weareAnuga” symbolizes the idea of uniting the diverse and global world of food.

People from various cultures, industries, and interests come together not only at Anuga in Cologne but also at our international food fairs worldwide! Together, we discuss ideas, discover the latest trends, and shape the future of the food industry.
