Following the successful premiere in 2015, ANUFOOD Eurasia has been able to defend its position as an international industry platform for the food industry in the Eurasian region with its second edition.
119 exhibitors from 12 countries presented their broad offering, among them first time exhibitor groups from the Czech Republic, Hungary, South Korea and Sri Lanka. Important top players from Turkey, like the canned foods manufacturer Burcu Konserve, the meat producer Danet, the tea manufacturer Doğadan or the well-known company Pinar also participated.
ANUFOOD Eurasia once again convinced with a high level of visitor quality. Exhibitors reported many good business deals closed directly at the fair. The majority of the around 3,000 trade visitors came from Turkey, whereby buyers from countries like Georgia and Uzbekistan were also registered. The share of foreign visitors was around 21 percent.
With its international mix of regionality and internationality, ANUFOOD Eurasia underlines the importance of the food industry for Turkey. Turkey plans to become the fifth largest producer of food in the world by its 100th birthday in 2023. The export of food products has developed dynamically in keeping with this. However, the import of food products also increases continuously. Reasons for this can be found in the growing population and the increasing demand of the urban population for foreign products.
