Vera Fritsche,

South Africa still has good growth potential in the food and beverage industry. To meet current challenges and remain fit for future growth the use of state-of-the-art technology is an important factor.

fdt Africa is the attractive platform to connect food processing, beverage and packaging machinery manufacturer with the end-user industries. This was particularly underlined by the high-quality contacts exhibitors had during the three days of the fdt Africa show.

At the show exhibitors presented machines and equipment along the entire value chain: from production, processing and packaging.

Stéphan Meulemans,
General Manager, Fermentis
It has been a good event to attend with great organization and good participation.

Following the event two years ago, I was intrigued to see how it would take off with this event and the expectations have been fullfilled.

Indeed, it has been a good opportunity to meet again and exchange with customers and distributors and get a good feel at first hand for recent developments in the beverage industry in Africa.
