Originating from the former Anuga-Technica and the DLG-FoodTec, the Anuga FoodTec has been facilitating a comprehensive, process-oriented perspective since 1996, providing an overview of the technologies at all stages of production.[1] It is this independence from sectors, raw materials and sub-processes that has made the trade fair one of the leading information and purchasing platforms of the global food industry.
