GOOD PROSPECTS FOR PROSWEETS COLOGNE 2022 AFTER THE EARLY BIRD PHASE
Renowned exhibitors from all product sections already on board
Cologne, May 2021 – ProSweets Cologne 2022 boasts an excellent number of registrations after the early bird phase at the end of April with a comparably high number of confirmations compared to 2019. Numerous renowned companies and highly-qualified special suppliers from nearly all sections have already registered. The high level of internationality with a good registration status from Belgium, France, Great Britain, Italy and the Netherlands, with in some cases increased floor space, indicates that the industry is ready for the re-start. As such, Koelnmesse is confident that if the current situation continues to show such positive development, they will be able to match the pre-Corona level with the ProSweets Cologne 2022. The international supplier trade fair for sweets and snacks is once again as in previous years being staged parallel to ISM, the world’s largest and most important trade fair for sweets and snacks.
Overall, the industry is looking optimistically ahead to the coming year and is looking forward to personal encounters again at the Cologne fair grounds.
In terms of content, the focus will once again lie on the sections Production & Packaging Technology, Packaging and Packaging Materials, Raw Materials and Ingredients as well as on Operating Equipment and Auxiliary Devices. A particular emphasis here will lie on sustainable packaging solutions, personalised diet, the reduction strategies of salt, sugar and fat as well as the implementation of alternative sources of protein. Sustainable approaches are particularly gaining significance in the production sector. Here, themes like the avoidance and reduction of food losses in the production, raw material shortages and procurement as well as the reduction of packaging materials will be of high relevance at the supplier trade fair in 2022.
ProSweets Cologne is once again being accompanied by an extensive event programme such as special events on the themes packaging and ingredients as well as expert lectures in the Speakers Corner. The establishment of the new Ingredients event zone and a lecture stage in Hall 5.2 is leading to an even closer interlinking with ISM. In this way, the section will in future serve more as a source of inspiration for new concepts and product ideas for the development of alternative products and product variants. This will encompass raw materials, ingredients as well as semifinished products.
The industry sponsors of ProSweets Cologne are the Federal Association of the German Sweets Industry (BDSI), Sweets Global Network e.V. (SG), the German Agricultural Society (DLG e.V.) and the Central College of the German Sweets Industry (ZDS).
