Northern Ireland Food takes Centre Stage at World’s Leading Food Fair

Fourteen companies from Northern Ireland are travelling to Cologne in Germany this weekend to take part in Anuga, the world’s leading food fair.

Anuga 2015, 10-14 October 2015, is a fair for the retail trade and the food service and catering market. Invest Northern Ireland has organised stands in the Meat and Fine Food halls, providing the opportunity for twelve local companies to showcase the quality and innovation underpinning local food and drink.

Beef, sheep meat and pork, are among the products on display as well as products from award-winning artisan food enterprises. Dale Farm and Greenfields will also be exhibiting independently in the Dairy Hall.

Speaking ahead of the visit, John Hood, Invest NI’s Director of Food and Tourism, said: “Anuga is a significant event for our Agri Food Industry as it provides a valuable platform for companies to showcase their products on an international stage.

“Northern Ireland exports food and drink products to over 70 countries worldwide, selling into leading international retail and food service organisations. This food fair is an unparalleled opportunity for local companies to present their skills, products and services to a world-wide audience and further build on their successes.”
