British bakery companies are being urged to take advantage of grant funding made available to businesses planning to exhibit at international food and drink trade show Anuga.
The exhibition, which is marketed as housing 10 trade shows under one roof, runs from 10-14 October 2009 at the Cologne Exhibition Centre in Germany. Eligible exhibitors can claim a UKTI grant of £1,400 towards their participation costs.
The show features a bread & bakery and hot beverages section, as well as fine food and organic, and has an exhibition space of 300,000sq m.
The last Anuga show in 2007 saw 163,348 trade visitors attend - 54% of which came from abroad.
This year, 60 companies are expected to exhibit across the UK pavilions, with 21 first-timers signed up, including Glebe Farm, which produces gluten-free bakery products and mixes. Dorset-based Honeybuns will also be exhibiting for the first time.
Formerly organised by Food from Britain, the UK pavilions are now organised by PS8, run by directors Sandra Sullivan and Paddy Edwards.
“PS8 is thrilled to be working with so many exciting companies at Anuga this year and our hard work has paid off, with the group almost sold out,” commented Sullivan. “With such strong international opportunities available to all levels of exporters, we urge anyone who has not yet booked their stand to contact us urgently to check availability.”
