Anuga Horizon 2050

Anuga Horizon 2050

Anuga – Taste the Future

The food & beverage industry is showing continual further development. Since the first Anuga was staged in the year 1919, there have been plenty of movement and changes within the industry, but Anuga has been its constant companion to present the latest trends and accompany and prepare the topical developments. The Anuga Horizon 2050 special event presents on the one hand the joint development of the food industry and Anuga as well as giving an insight into the future of food.

  • How can new technologies change the food & beverage industry?
  • How can disruptive innovations be implemented?
  • And what is necessary to guarantee sustainable transparency and safety along the food value chain?

These and further questions will be addressed on the Anuga Horizon 2050 zone, which is divided up into five different theme areas. Furthermore, on a central stage an accompanying programme with fireside chats, panel discussions, start-up pitches, keynotes and examples of best practice will round off the knowledge exchange. Five days filled with valuable know-how, informative insights and inspiriting presentations!

The five thematic pillars of the special event:

  1. Sustainable Environment- Better Food for a better World
  2. New Solutions, New Products
  3. Alternative proteins
  4. New Nutrition- The Evolution of Food
  5. Internet of Food


The organisation "Ecotrophelia Next Food Generation" aims to offer new projects and innovative concepts for the food industry a unique platform to promote the exchange within the industry. An external jury comprising of international experts will select exclusively the most innovative concepts from among all entries. Four different young companies will have the chance to present their ideas and concepts in the scope of Anuga Horizon 2050. After the 5 days of the trade fair, ultimately 20 different concepts will have been presented - so there is a fresh breeze and many inspiring ideas for the visitor every day.
