From 10 to 14.10., the international leading trade fair of the global food branch took place in Cologne with 7,000 exhibitors from 108 countries and round 160,000 visitors from 192 countries.
One of the most important trend themes: vegan products! More than 900 exhibitors presented vegan products, among others. 130 vegan product innovations were submitted for the "taste15" innovation award, eight of which were able to present themselves with a total of 63 winners in a special event. Lectures and discussions on the topic took place in the supporting programme.
Summary: vegan consumption is a lifestyle broadening in popularity, which has arrived in the middle of society, and will thus become a long-term growth market for manufacturers and commerce. This is also confirmed by the great interest in the new "veganfach" trade air in the framework of Anuga.
