Friday, November 22nd, 2019 | 723 Views

In cooperation with Korea’s leading trade fair organiser Coex, DLG is organising a new trade fair focusing on International Food Technology. The event will take place parallel to the 15th edition of Coex Food Week. The premiere will be from 25 to 28 November 2020 at the Coex Center, Seoul, South Korea. The new trade fair and conference format will be focusing on developments by and offerings from the international food technology sector and their relevance for the markets in North and East Asia.

South Korea is one of the centres of the fast-growing food industry in the Asia-Pacific region. Experts estimate that by 2020, 40 per cent of the global turnover will be earned in this region. The Northern Asian food industry alone has been displaying an annual growth rate of more than 30 percent since 2010. The demand for technological solutions that satisfy the growing consumer demands made of the quality and safety of food and beverages and that enable more efficient production methods is high correspondingly.

“With the Food Industry Technology Show, we offer national and international suppliers of food technologies, production aids, additive materials and packaging solutions as well as food producers an attractive business platform and a network of international food technology experts. Together with the Coex Food Week, which has grown to become Korea’s leading trade show for the global food and beverage industry, welcoming a large number of local and international buyers, we thus cover the entire food value chain”, says Simone Schiller, Managing Director DLG Competence Center Food.

Drew Lee, CEO and President of Coex emphasises the importance of the new trade fair for the Korean peninsula and the region of North and East Asia.  “Given the increasing globalisation of product trends and flows of goods, close networking with the international food technology scene is of crucial importance for the food and beverage producers from South Korea and the whole region. With DLG as an experienced expert organisation and organiser of leading trade fairs and conferences in the fields of agricultural machinery and food technology, and Coex as an international exhibition organiser that launches over 20 shows annually in Korea and overseas, we believe that Food Industry Technology Show Korea can achieve a strong brand competitiveness and identity within the industry. We are confident that the partnership between the two who excel with both expertise and an international network will result in record breaking success.


Technology Fair together with the Coex Food Week

The Food Industry Technology Show Korea will take place at the same time as the Coex Food Week. Together with the leading Korean trade fair for food and beverages, the new event covers the entire value creation chain – from production to marketing. The accompanying Technical Programme, developed by DLG, Coex and further partners, will focus not only on topical themes from the fields of food processing, packaging and ingredients, but also on the increasing digitalisation of production and processing options.
