Good news for the Iran business: Iran is investing heavily in the modernization of its food and beverage industry as imports of food, beverage and packaging technology from the EU-28 countries rose by 49% to EUR 165.5 million between January and October 2016, according to VDMA.
As German manufacturers delivered food and packaging machines to Iran worth EUR 47 million in 2015, German exports in this sector rose by 113% to EUR 71.5 million over the first ten months of 2016 compared to the same period in 2015.
So it comes as no surprise that the official German Pavilion at iran food + bev tec 2017 will feature a record participation of 44 German exhibitors on 1,182 sqm net space, in addition to 15 German exhibitors on 606 sqm exhibiting at iran food + bev tec and iran food ingredients outside the German Pavilion. The German Pavilion is presented by the German Ministry for Economic Affairs – BMWi and the Association of the German Trade Fair Industry - AUMA and supported by the German Engineering Federation VDMA - Food Processing & Packaging Machinery Association.
Similar to Germany, Italy traditionally massively presents itself at iran food + bev tec, last year with even more than one hundred exhibitors. Other official country pavilions at iran food + bev tec 2017 come from Austria, China, France, India, the Netherlands, Poland and Turkey.
In 2016, 633 exhibitors from 37 countries participated in iran food + bev tec, including 96 exhibitors from 11 countries of the Special Showcase iran food ingredients. These figures are expected to increase significantly this year.
