IFFA is the leading international trade fair for processing, packaging and sales in the meat industry. It has been the international platform for the meat-processing industry and the world’s foremost forum for investment decisions since 1949. Thanks to the great depth and breadth of the range of products on show, as well as the exceptionally large number of international exhibitors and visitors, IFFA gives a convincing demonstration of its outstanding position in the sector every three years. In 2016, 63,000 trade visitors from around 143 countries came to Frankfurt to see the range of products and services offered by 1027 exhibitors. The proportion of trade visitors from outside Germany rose significantly compared to the last event three years ago, to 66 percent – more than ever before.
