Anuga, 5th – 9th October 2019, Cologne, Germany

Mauritius sustains its presence at Anuga

The Economic Development Board (EDB) is renewing its participation to Anuga, the world’s leading trade fair for the food and beverage industry, which will be held from 5th to 9th October 2019 in Cologne, Germany.

In line with its objective to position Mauritius as a quality supplier of low glycemic index products, special sugars, high-quality fish, seafood products, agro and rice specialties, the Economic Development Board will lead a delegation comprising 10 operators to the event.

This year marks the 100th edition of the event and organizers are expecting more than 165,000 trade visitors and 7,405 exhibitors.

As the global industry is rapidly changing with major shifts in dietary patterns and a growing interest for foods from specific geographical locations, it is a prerequisite for Mauritius to respond and adapt to the changes in consumer demand. As such, the nature and extent of the changing consumption patterns present unprecedented opportunities for diversification and value addition in the Mauritian manufacturing sector.

Anuga will also serve as a platform to promote Mauritius as a sourcing destination for trade and investment, to connect with major players of the agro-industry, develop new markets and keep abreast with the latest and evolving trends for the sector.
