The program of the 53rd edition of Cibus Tec was announced, together with the inauguration of the first Machinery Observatory for Food & Beverage, which aims to identify dimensions, performance, markets and competitiveness indexes of the supply chain on an international scale. In particular, in this context, the analysis of the positioning of Italian machinery on international markets was presented in light of the strong propensity for exports of the sector, which in the first quarter of 2023 recorded a growth of 20% on the same period compared to 2022.
The 2023 edition will highlight the largest area dedicated to the best food tech and artificial intelligence start-ups. There will be dozens of selected global companies that will present the most interesting applications of artificial intelligence and robotics to the public.
A few months after the opening of Cibus Tec 2023, the available exhibition area is already almost sold out, with 1,200 confirmed exhibitors, including the best Made in Italy food-mechanical companies and more than 400 foreign brands from 30 countries, including Germany, France, Turkey, Denmark, India, United States of America and China.
Over 40,000 visitors from Italy and 120 countries around the world are expected in Parma from 24 to 27 October, with an important presence of visitors from Europe, the United States, the markets of South America and Africa.
Furthermore, thanks to important investments, the collaboration with the ICE Agency and the support of the Emilia-Romagna Region, more than 3,000 VIP Top Buyers of F&B companies from over 60 countries have been invited.
The fair has always been organized in Parma, an iconic place for the Italian food sector, which has about 1,200 food industries.
“In particular, among the most exported food machinery from Italy in 2022, we find machinery and equipment dedicated to packaging – for a value of EUR 4 billion -, technologies dedicated to food processing – EUR 2.5 billion – and bottling machines, which accounted for EUR 1.5 billion in exports last year,” the organizer reveals.
