Anuga FoodTec 2018 will focus on the theme ‘Resource Efficiency’ this year covering all aspects of food production from the dairy and bakery industries, beverages and pasta, fruit & vegetables, to oils & fats.

Opening its doors from March 20-23, the trade fair in Cologne, Germany, will have 1,700 exhibitors with companies from more than 50 countries with conferences, meeting points and forums, guided tours, award ceremonies, special shows and a Speaker’s Corner.

William Reed 


Jenny Eagle, senior packaging & processing editor for DairyReporter and BakeryandSnacks will be hosting two conferences: ‘Trends in innovative Bakery​’ on Wednesday, March 21, from 10am-12noon in Meeting Points/Forums Food Ingredients (Boulevard Middle A 25) and ‘Dairy Technology – Raw Material Management​’ on Thursday, March 22, from 3pm-5pm at Forum, Topics, Trends, Technologies – What’s Moving Today’s Food Industry (Hall 9, D 98). 

Trends in Innovative Bakery will look at changes within the industry including products that are oriented to consumer and market requirements; the smart factory for bakery products; and recovery and recycling, such as by-products from food production.

A further trend in bakery is the production of frozen foods: These products require special knowledge concerning processes and raw materials. The speakers in this session will discuss functional recipe components in frozen bakery products.

In ‘Dairy Technology – Raw Material Management’, registration of raw milk, transport, registration of samples, analytics, milk bill settlements and quality standards are just a few of the fields that show how complex the procurement of milk as a raw material is today.

The speakers will talk about how raw material management can be implemented.
