Anuga, the world’s largest trade fair for food and beverages, took place this year in Cologne, Germany, October 5-9.

This year’s show marked the event’s 100th anniversary. Some 165,000 attendees viewed the offerings of 7405 exhibitors from 100 countries in the 284,000 square feet of floor space that accommodated Anuga’s ten constituent trade shows.

Among the 11 trends that the show focused on were the new ‘free from’ food category, halal and kosher foods, non-GMO, organic, protected designation of origin (PDO) and ready-to-eat.

This year, for the first time Anuga presented the "Boulevard of Inspiration," which showcased innovations by region and theme and was bundled into three special events: the Anuga Trend Zone, the Anuga taste Innovation Show – where the top new products of 2019 were showcased, as picked by a jury of journalists and market analysts – and Anuga Horizon 2050, a new event platform that focused on visions and new solutions to take the food industry through the next 50 years.

Grocery Business Magazine was there with camera at the ready.
