Organised guild excursions to IFFA: quick, comfortable and great value
At IFFA – The No. 1 for the meat industry – from 4 to 9 May 2013, an important segment for the butchers’ trade will be located for the first time in Hall 4.1 of Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre. There, the focus will be on leading suppliers from the ‘Sales – everything for butcher's shops’ segment. In Hall 4.0, visitors will find the latest trends and products in the fields of ingredients, spices, additives, casings and packing. The market leaders from home and abroad taking part there are important business partners for artisan meat processing.
Parallel to the vast range of products on show, the international quality competitions organised by the German Butchers’ Association (Deutscher Fleischer-Verband – DFV) will once again be genuine crowd pullers. In Hall 4.1, participating butchers can measure themselves the variety and quality of their artisan products against those of international competitors. However, it is not only the trophies, medals and certificates that make the competitions so attractive. They are also an important opportunity for butchers to set benchmarks for themselves and to increase the quality of their products.
The butchers from Germany and abroad taking part enter products made on their own premises for the following competitions:
New: International Quality Competition for Products in Cans and Jars
