ProFood Tech, the only event in North America focused exclusively on food and beverage sectors, will welcome 7,000 processing professionals and 400 of the world’s top suppliers over 125,000 net square feet of exhibit floor.

Produced by three of the world’s trade show leaders, PACK EXPO, Koelnmesse - organizer of Anuga, and the International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA), the three-day event will showcase cutting-edge crossover technologies and innovative solutions for professionals involved in dairy, beverage, baking and snack, meat/poultry/seafood, confectionery, grain/mill/cereal, fruits and vegetables, pet food/pet care, and ingredients.

“The inaugural event in 2017 set just the right tone for the show, and we’re building on that foundation,” says Neil Moran, IDFA senior vice president of finance, administration, and trade show. “Based on conversations with attendees and exhibitors, we heard that the new show provides countless growth opportunities for companies willing to employ new technology and techniques to boost production, efficiency and profits.”

Attendees in 2017 found great value in visiting the wide variety of exhibitors on the show floor.

“We are a milk manufacturing plant and our team [attended ProFood Tech seeking] innovations to help improve our operations,” says Hunter Braun, senior laboratory technician, Purple Cow Creamery. “We met with quality suppliers and had a chance to sit in on educational sessions which were all very insightful.

In addition to world-class education offerings, ProFood Tech serves as the gathering place for the food and beverage processing industry.
