IFFA 2022

The World’s Leading Trade Fair – Technology for Meat and Alternative Proteins

IFFA covers the entire market for processing, packaging and selling of meat and alternative proteins. Thus offering the global food industry a platform for innovation and networking.

"The registration figures for IFFA are a strong signal for Frankfurt as a trade show location! They show us: Messe Frankfurt was, is and will remain world class – despite the cut caused by the Corona pandemic. And: Messe Frankfurt is the place for the topics of the future. For example more and more people are opting for a meat-free or low-meat diet. It's good that IFFA is embracing this trend.”

Peter Feldmann

"There is a huge need in the industry of getting together in person. On behalf of the exhibitors, I would like to emphasize that we need IFFA to be a strong international platform this year and we are looking forward to presenting our innovations to the trade audience. With the new topic of alternative proteins, the world's leading trade fair is also experiencing an important realignment and a push towards the future."

Klaus Schröter

"Butchers' businesses also achieved above-average sales in Germany in 2021. Many companies are planning major investments for 2022, focusing particularly on production and sales. This overall positive mood will certainly be reflected at IFFA and we are looking forward to meet in Frankfurt in May."

Herbert Dohrmann

"IFFA offers a safe environment for contacts, business and inspiration. Our protection and hygiene concept, which has been coordinated with the authorities, has already been used successfully at many in-person events. And as is the case everywhere, those who are vaccinated and boosted have the greatest possible freedom of action."

Wolfgang Marzin
