Enjoyable meeting of industries
Compared to last year's edition, the fair was better attended, although the proportion of visitors from the fruit and vegetable sector was rather low, Andre Rinne of Nordvac noted. The company has been a regular exhibitor at Internorga for many years. "There were mainly farm shop operators and direct marketers on site asking about the latest industry trends, such as vegan convenience products, meat substitutes and reusable systems."

The company's booth focused on highly automated equipment for vacuum packaging food products, including fruits and vegetables. Among other things, a high-performance vacuumizer for the food service industry, thermoformed packaging for appealing product presentation and individual packaging design, and menu packaging concepts for sealed trays were presented. Rinne: "We can look back on a successful trade show due to the public traffic and the high-quality leads. The range of machines on display contributed to many contacts, some from higher-level industries. In general, you can feel the pleasure of the industries coming together at Internorga, post-pandemic."

Great interest in highly automated plant technology
The Schomaker company also looks back on a successful trade fair presence, Ricarda Schomaker reports. On Sunday and Monday in particular, the number of visitors was quite pleasing. There was also lively interest from the neighboring countries of Poland as well as the Netherlands. "The interest from the fruit sector was quite manageable, but there were many visitors from the vegetable and meat substitute product sectors. General developments in the out-of-home market include, for example, new alternatives for packaging as well as the trend towards additional footholds for restaurateurs and butchers, for example in the form of a vending machine service," says Schomaker.

The family-owned company has already been at home in innovative processing technology for meat as well as vegetables and potatoes for many years. Schomaker: "We are finding that our breading and deep-frying line as well as our continuous frying system are establishing themselves very well. Many interested parties come from the catering sector, for example for daycare centers, retirement homes or schools, and these projects could in some cases be realized promptly or within one to two years."
