The international supplier fair for the food and drink
Anuga has a clear mission for 2021: To bring the food and beverage industry together for a physical gathering and to provide a forum for face-to-face meetings, maintaining connections and building sustainable business relationships.
Anuga’s unique trade fair concept is the key to realizing this goal: Ten trade shows under one roof provide orientation, connect supply and demand, and offer diverse taste experiences.
With its finger on the pulse of cutting-edge developments, Anuga will show the industry the way forward with a host of creative concepts and innovative products.
10 trade shows under one roof
Anuga impresses with a special trade fair concept.
It is not just a single trade fair, but 10 trade shows in one.
This concept makes Anuga a unique platform of opportunities for exhibitors and trade visitors.
Each trade show is dedicated to one of the most significant segments of the food and beverage industry.
This way, the Anuga food fair 2019 in Cologne represented the entire industry.
100 years of Anuga history
2019 was a special year because Anuga celebrates its 100th anniversary – a remarkable sign of its significance to the industry.
The first Anuga food fair took place in Stuttgart in 1919.
Based on the concept of an annual touring exhibition, further events of the “General Food and Beverage Exhibition” were held, among others in Munich in 1920, in Berlin in 1922 and in Cologne in 1924.
With around 360 exhibitors and 40,000 visitors, the first Anuga food fair in Cologne was the most successful event since its launch in 1919, which is why the organizers opted for Cologne as the food fair’s permanent location
