Bus-Shuttle, Eingang Nord

From March 19 to 22, 2024, Anuga FoodTec will address processing alternative proteins and the necessary know-how along the entire process chain. The Cologne trade show and the German Association for Alternative Protein Sources (BALPro e.V.) are extending their cooperation for sustainable innovation in the food industry. The trade fair visitors expect insights and inspiring discussions revolving around this future-oriented theme.

“Due to the further growth of world population, we can presume an increased need for food and thus also a growing demand for plant-based protein”, said Matthias Schlüter, Director of Anuga FoodTec.

“The renewed cooperation with BALPro e.V. underlines our common obligation to design the food and beverage industries to be more sustainable. We are convinced that this partnership will contribute to advancing pioneering ideas and innovations, with the aim of adequately addressing the challenges of the future”, Schlüter continued.

Whether this now involves fermenters, bioreactors, filtration systems or driers: trade visitors and companies will find comprehensive information about the manufacture of alternative proteins at Anuga FoodTec. The international supplier trade fair of the food and beverage industries thereby not only covers the broad spectrum of solutions for the manufacture of plant-based and cultivated meat alternatives, but also takes a detailed look at solutions for milk, cheese, egg or fish alternatives.

BALPro e.V. shares this commitment: ”Our cooperation focuses on supporting our members and other industry participants in shaping the development of the sector together and utilizing potential. Only in this way can the increasing global need for new technologies and resource-preserving solutions be covered”, is how Fabio Ziemßen, chairman of the German association, expresses it.
