The South African pavilion at Anuga 2015, held in Cologne, Germany from 10 to 14 October, has illustrated local manufacturers have what it takes to compete in the global market.
The Department of Trade and Industry (dti) was instrumental in bringing 41 South African companies to the trade fair. The department’s Gordon Gleimius comments: ‘Anuga is the global meeting place if you are in the food and beverage industry in South Africa. The five days will afford us the opportunity of not only networking with buyers and retailers from across the world, but also to place our products within a broader context of innovation and price.’
He adds that the companies represented at this year’s event are a good mix of small, medium and large, and feature an interesting range of products. ‘As a South African, and as part of the dti, I am proud to be here,’ he concludes.
