Anuga 2021 sets new path for the meat industry
EuroMeatNews.com is welcoming the organization of this year's edition of Anuga, a restart of the global food industry, a place where we meet old and new partners and friends for developing interesting and innovative projects. "After two difficult years we proudly say that the meat industry is back in business", declared Eugen Capra, CEO Carnexpo & EuroMeat News.
However, the event was not so attractive for some of the major players in the industry, such as Tonnies, Vion Food Group, Danish Crown, Westfleisch, or Wiesenhof, companies that decided to participate only online for this year's edition. "Uncertainty is still present in the global market, Covid crisis is also a threat and for some of those players, the physical presence may be uncomfortable. Nevertheless, we feel encouraged by this event as we have seen many people interested in getting the business done. Meat will always be a product highly traded so there is no end in this business", concluded Mr. Niculae.
#transform was the leading theme for the trade fair, as the industry faces new challenges brought by the Covid crisis. Cell-based proteins, meat substitutes, Clean Label as well as Free From, Health & Functional Foods were presented during the event held in Koln, Germany. Organizers announced that more than 4,000 exhibitors from 91 countries have been present at this edition. The ten largest country participations come from Belgium, Germany, France, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Turkey and the USA.
