On 7-11th October 2017, the world’s largest exhibition for food and luxury consumables, Anuga, took place in Cologne. More than 7,400 companies from 107 countries presented their products in the 11 exhibition halls. The 34th edition of Anuga broke its own record with 165,000 specialist visitors. Our motivated exhibition team not only represented OPW Ingredients each day of the exhibition at our joint booth with our strategic partner La Tourangelle, they also took advantage of the exhibition to stay abreast of the latest trends and developments. “The five days of the exhibition took us on a culinary journey around the world,” Melanie Weischer, responsible for marketing at OPW, reminisces. Drinks, baked goods, frozen foods, desserts and many other delicacies were presented at the exhibition. Dr Wolfgang Ingold, Director of the Federation of German Food and Drink Industries (BVE), summarises: “The modern food industry can only grow through exports. One in three Euros is earned abroad. As the largest and most important specialist exhibition for food products, Anuga is also the largest and most important platform for the export business of the German food industry. Once again, German food producers successfully proved that they have more to offer than just tasty goods. They are market leaders in product quality, safety and diversity! No other industry is as innovative as ours: every year, more than 40,000 new food products enter the German market alone. This also makes Anuga a leading global exhibition of innovations. This year’s innovations include high-protein foods and drinks, products incorporating superfoods, and the increasingly popular ready-to-eat concepts. As an innovative, flexible producer of high-grade vegetable proteins and flours – such as almond protein, sesame protein, pea protein and golden linseed flour –, it is our job to keep up to date at all times. The next edition of Anuga will take place from 5-9th October 2019, and we are already looking forward to being there again – maybe even as an exhibitor. If you have further questions about our products or need information from us, our team will be delighted to assist you. Besides flours and proteins, we focus on oils such as almond oil, walnut oil, apricot kernel oil, castor oil, sebacic acid and on vegetable oils in general.
