Every two years the world’s largest and most important trade fair for food and beverages focuses on a specific country. The selected official partner country at Anuga 2019 is Paraguay. This was confirmed by Koelnmesse and Rediex, which as the investment and export promotion agency within the Paraguayan Ministry for Industry and Commerce promotes the economic development of the country and is responsible for the coordination of the partner country activities. These will be supported by the German-Paraguayan Chamber of Industry and Commerce (AHK Paraguay).
Gerald Böse, President and Chief Executive Officer of Koelnmesse GmbH, welcomes the decision for Paraguay on this important exhibition: “We have upheld very good business relations to South America for quite some time. I am thus delighted that we were able to win over Paraguay as our partner country and are as a result placing the focus on the South American Continent for the first time at Anuga. Anuga is the most important industry meeting point of the global food industry and offers the partner country the best opportunities for global networking in order to open up further business potential.” Jan Hoeckle, President of AHK Paraguay further explains: As the official representative of Koelnmesse in Paraguay, the AHK has been promoting the country’s participation in ANUGA for many years. As partner country, we hope to inspire many people and companies from all over the world for Paraguay and its products.”
Paraguay has already been represented at Anuga several times. In 2017, over 20 companies participated mainly under the aegis of Rediex, which has been responsible for the organisation of the Paraguayan pavilion at Anuga for many years. In addition, the Meat Chamber (Camara Paraguaya de Carnes) participates at each edition in the meat segment at Anuga Meat.
