Koelnmesse India is delighted to bring back AnutecInternational FoodTec India, PackEx India, Food Logistics India, and Anutec Ingredients India at IECC, Pragati Maidan from 2 to 4 December 2021, the most comprehensive exhibition dedicated to food and beverage technology.

The food and beverage technology companies and buyers are excited to restart the growth journey with the 15th edition of Anutec – International FoodTec India and its co-located exhibitions. The industry has undergone radical changes within the past two years, and its dynamics have entirely changed. To address this, the advancements in producing food and beverages that conform to consumer demands are already available, and Anutec – International FoodTec India is providing a platform to entire F&B producers to explore the available innovations. 

The four exhibitions co-located make it the most comprehensive event that caters to the needs, from processing to packaging and final delivery using advanced logistics services. Furthermore, the event will feature on-site seminars on Supply Chain, Packaging, and Food Processing conducted by renowned institutions such as Logistic Insider, Indian Flexible Packaging & Folding Carton Manufacturers Association, and All India Food Processors’ Association. Also, the top-notch F&B producers have already confirmed their visit to the exhibition. 

“Over 200 companies from more than 15 countries will be demonstrating their products and services physically during three days of the event, and we expect more than 6,000 focused buyers to attend the event to upgrade their food and beverage production processes. We are maintaining a hygienic and safe environment for these professionals so that they can network comfortably,” says Milind Dixit, managing director, Koelnmesse YA Tradefair. 

“As a result of our global expertise in the F&B sector, we were able to organize the exhibitions after a gap. Year after year, these trade fairs have created value for the F&B technology providers and their buyers across India and neighboring countries. We are looking forward to seeing everyone in person,” added Annkathrin Rasch, global brand manager, FoodTec, Koelnmesse.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
