The German Frozen Food Institute, dti, which has been the exclusive partner of Anuga Frozen Food since 2013, will also be represented again with contact partners and information at its centrally located exhibition stand. In total, over 7,400 companies from 107 countries will be exhibiting at Anuga from 7 to 11 October 2017. Anuga is the largest trade fair for food and beverages worldwide.

The frozen food segment is one of the most important innovation drivers both for the retail trade and the out-of-home market. The supermarket freezers contain numerous product innovations, for example in the sections desserts, smoothies, vegetarian snacks and burgers as well as new hybrid product variations. Convenience is and remains to be an important theme, as are small and portionable product sizes. The current food trends are also reflected in the frozen food ranges: Vegan alternatives, organic, free-from, halal can also be found in the frozen food departments in addition to international specialities. Furthermore, the consumer enjoys combining frozen products with fresh ingredients.

Food shortages and food wastages are also important themes in the frozen food industry. Particularly here frozen products offer many solutions for the resource-saving processing and the corresponding implementation of goods.

According to the dti, the German frozen food market is also experiencing further growth. Both the consumers and professional chefs like using frozen products. In 2016, a significant 2.5 percent growth in volume was recorded.

The overall sales of frozen products in Germany increased up to 3.632 mil. tonnes in 2016. The turnover with frozen products increased up to €13.806 billion.

Pro capita the Germany consumed on average 45.4 kg of frozen products in 2016 - in the previous year it was 44.5 kg. Every household in Germany consumed on average 91.5 kg of frozen food last year. The frozen food industry can thus look back on a very successful fiscal year.

For the first time ever in terms of volume more frozen food products were used in the out-of-home market than by the end consumer at home. The sales volume rose by 4.1 percent up to 1.827 mil. tonnes. The out-of-home market turnover with frozen foods achieved a value of €6.236 bil. last year, this corresponds to a growth of 5.7 percent. This is also due to the fact that the food service sector and out-of-home market are experiencing growth overall. For example the commodity group bakery products is profiting from the "to-go" trend. It increased by 5.9 percent in 2016.
