The event

Sustainability. Food Safety. Transparency

Together with various partners, the Federal Association of the German Retail Grocery Trade (BVLH) is once again presenting itself at Anuga in the scope of its BVLH Retailforum. The motto of the pavilion is "Sustainability. Food Safety. Transparency.". Here, the association will be demonstrating the manifold facets of the German food trade as well as different solutions by various organisations and partners on these current themes.

Innovative solutions that are exemplary for the forward-looking and practical orientation of the industry are the main focus of the BVLH show. For example, exciting solutions from the sections digitalisation (BrandLogistics.NET) and sustainability (among others MEIBox) will be presented to the visitors. This will be enhanced by manifold statistical industry information (, which will offer the interested visitor a detailed insight into the structure of the German food trade. Exciting information on the theme of training skilled workers will be presented at the stand by the food akademie Neuwied - the BVLH is their principal shareholder - and the food Hotel. As an example, reference will be made here to the high significance of the promotion of talented young employees for the industry.

At the Retailforum, the partners Fairtrade Germany, the German Initiative on Sustainable Cocoa, the Association Food without Genetic Engineering (VLOG) and the Thünen Institute - with the database project "Fish stocks online" - will be presenting their various activities on the important theme of sustainability. They will be demonstrating for instance in what manifold ways different players from the fields of industry, science, civil society and politics are engaging themselves for the social and environmental-compatible generation, processing and distribution of foodstuffs and the related topics.

The theme safety is also represented by the partners International Featured Standards (IFS) and GLOBALG.A.P. These are worldwide significant initiatives for the quality assurance of foodstuffs. ORGAINVENT will present its system for the origin labelling of meat, which in addition to the labelling of beef also encompasses the origin labelling of other types of meat. GS1 Germany, an absolute specialist for the development and implementation of open, cross-industry and worldwide applicable standards will be represented, who occupies itself with the efficient design of processes across the value chains of different companies.

With its diversified offer of themes and central location on the Central Boulevard, the BVLH Retailforum will once again be a point of contact for the official trade fair tours and for media representatives.
