100 years of Anuga!

We are very proud, to take part to the 100th edition of the Anuga in Cologne!

Since 1919 when the first ANUGA took place in Stuttgart with 200 German exhibitors, the “Allgemeine Nahrungs- und Genussmittelausstellung” (General and Luxury-Food Exhibition) takes place every 2 years, bringing together people from all over the world.

On the 29th of September 1919 the Neues Tagesblatt newspaper stated, “It seems to be the right time for an exhibition where the merchants can inform themselves about the available offer”.

After having moved to various cities throughout Germany, like Munich in 1920 and Berlin in 1922, the edition of 1924 in Cologne was such a success (40,000 visitors and 360 exhibitors), that the organizers decided to keep this as the official location for future editions.

For this year’s edition the organizers expect around 165,000 visitors from over 100 countries of the world and 7,405 exhibitors being keeping it’s first place as leading food & beverage fair worldwide.

Mokaflor has been attending since 1999 and this will therefore be our 10th edition!

Have a look at some pictures we have found on the special website which ANUGA has dedicated to it’s 100th edition.
