Over 7,000 exhibitors from 108 countries will be exhibiting at Anuga again from 10 to 14 October 2015 and they will present a comprehensive portfolio of food and drinks products for the trade and food service sector. Once again this year, the largest and most important food trade fair in the world will kick off with the Anuga Executive Summit, the exclusive opening event on the eve of the trade fair (9 October 2015). The Anuga Executive Summit offers the top managers of leading companies from the trade and industry a forum to discuss current trends and strategic future issues. The event is being jointly organised by the Federal Association of the German Retail Grocery Trade (BVLH), the Federation of the German Food & Drinks Industries (BVE), the Consumer Goods Forum and Koelnmesse GmbH (only on special invitation).
Professor Manfred Güllner will be providing the professional impulse. The founder of the Forsa Institute has been assessing the political mood in the country for “Stern” and “RTL” for years. But the opinion researcher is also well-informed about the buying behaviour of the German people. At the Anuga Executive Summit, he will be taking a look at the development of the sustainable consumption of food. What do the Germans understand by this today, what are they prepared to pay for it, are they prepared to change their habits and what can the industry and trade do to achieve the goal of sustainable consumption? Manfred Güllner will answer these questions in his keynote speech.
Several chefs de cuisine from the exclusive Cologne food service sector will provide exquisite food and drinks and they will freshly prepare the specialities of their establishments at front cooking stations live while the guests are watching.
The organisers of the Anuga Executive Summit are the Federal Association of the German Retail Grocery Trade (BVLH), the Federation of the German Food & Drinks Industries (BVE), the Consumer Goods Forum and Koelnmesse GmbH.
