Anuga celebrates hot beverages
The world’s biggest food fair, that brings ‘ten shows under one roof,’ has for the first time given coffee and tea their own platform at the exhibition.
Anuga, which takes place 7-11 October in Cologne, Germany, traditionally put tea and coffee together with bread and bakery products. This year, the sector has its own area in Hall 7, under the title Anuga Hot Beverages. “With the new trade show, Anuga Hot Beverages, we are doing justice to the segment’s significance within the trade and in the out-of-home market, which has grown over the last years,” comments Anuga project manager Lorenz Rau comments. “Our new trade show met with great interest from the very beginning and is very popular among the exhibitors of coffee and tea.”
Overall, Anuga covers 284,000 square metres of exhibition space in 11 halls. It has almost 7,200 exhibitors from 100 countries, and around 160,000 visitors. Nearly 89% of the exhibitors and 69% of visitors come from abroad.
