But not only are the current trends presented at Anuga. Anuga is also looking into the future of food and beverages and thus offers for the first time a platform called Anuga Horizon 2050 that exclusively addresses this topic. Trade visitors can inform themselves about the visions and new solutions for the next 50 years on all days of the trade fair and also engage in an active exchange with industry pioneers, experts and start-ups. The aim is furthermore to inform the visitors about new technologies, solutions, trends and innovations and underpin these using cases of best practice. Here it is all about issues regarding how new technologies are changing the food industry, how disruptive innovations are implemented and what is necessary in order to guarantee sustainable transparency and safety within the food chain. These and further questions within the following five thematic blocks will be answered in the course of panel discussions, start-up pitches, keynotes and best practices.

An insight into the history of Anuga additionally reveals the most important milestones in the trade fair’s 100-year history. The special mix between the past, trends, inspirations, new impulses and professionally oriented future themes is what turns Anuga into an important innovation driver and trendsetter.
