ANUFOOD China: New Dates Announced

ANUFOOD China spans across 20,000 sqm with over 500 exhibitors from a variety of industry sectors, 40 percent of which are from 35 different countries. These sectors include; meat, confectionery, dairy, fine food, seafood, organic, baby, fresh, beverage, and food service. There is also ample opportunities for networking.

China has suspended entry of foreign nationals since March 28th 2020, due to COVID-19 still being transmitted on a global scale. The expo was originally intended to be held on 8-10 July 2020 in Shenzhen, China. However, after prudent evaluation, the industry event has been rescheduled to 21-23 April 2021. The venue will remain at the Shenzen World Exhibition & Convention Center.

Powered by Anuga, ANUFOOD China receives diverse resources from global food and beverage markets. ANUFOOD China is positioned to integrate a high degree of internationalisation to create greater value for the positive development of the food and beverage industry in Southern China and Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area. With international exhibitors being a key ingredient to the event, it was a crucial decision to postpone the event to 2021.

Koelnmesse China, China Chamber of Commerce of Import & Export of Foodstuffs, Native Produce & Animal By-Products (CFNA), Shenzhen Retail Association, the three organisers jointly stated:

"We remain dedicated to the goal of making a uniquely remarkable international F&B exhibition to revitalise the Chinese market. With the help of time and all the global concerted efforts in fighting COVID-19, the new date will allow us not to compromise the quality of the show while at the same time to have extra efforts in producing an ANUFOOD China as a one-stop platform where quality brands and suppliers expand network and meet trade buyers, supporting programs like conferences & cuisine competitions enrich the whole exhibition experience.

Restore, refresh, revitalise. The rescheduled ANUFOOD China will bounce back together with the resurgent market, and be poised to establish a comprehensive platform covering the food and beverage market in Southern China.

We welcome all the exhibitors, visitors and industry colleagues from all corners of the world to meet in Shenzhen, China in April 2021."
