‘I am delighted to welcome our customers and business partners to the new Hall 12, which will be used for the first time at IFFA. We will have long and intensive days, moreover we celebrate 70 years Schröter from Saturday to Wednesday from 15h with a "Happy Hour". IFFA is like 6 days of carnival in a row for our industry!’

Klaus Schröter

‘IFFA is always a place of international exchange. In these 6 days we often learn what changes our worldwide customers expect or want for their products and productions in the future. This means that IFFA is always a source of new product ideas on our part.’

Andreas Hager (Quelle: Magurit Gefrierschneider GmbH)

‘A special highlight this year, however, will certainly be the first use of the new Hall 12, which in my opinion is very successful both functionally and architecturally and will therefore significantly enhance the overall image of IFFA.’

Karl Keller

The origins of IFFA go back to 1949 when, as part of a conference of the Butchers' Association of the US Zone in Frankfurt am Main, an accompanying butchers' exhibition was organised. Messe- und Ausstellungs-GmbH of Frankfurt am Main was commissioned to hold it.
