Meet the rescheduled ANUFOOD China in April, 2021

In light of the fact that the novel coronavirus causing COVID-19 has still been transmitting on a global scale and the temporary measure adopted by China to suspend entry by foreign nationals since March 28, 2020, the prerequisite of hosting an international level exhibition and/or conference in China has remained quite challenging. After prudent evaluation, ANUFOOD China, which was planned to be held in 8-10 July 2020 in Shenzhen, China, is now further rescheduled to 21-23, April 2021. The venue will remain the same at Shenzhen World Exhibition & Convention Center.

Powered by Anuga, with receiving diverse resources from global F&B markets as the basis, ANUFOOD China is positioned to integrate a high degree of internationalization to create greater value for the positive development of the food and beverage industry in Southern China and Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area. The travel restriction will affect all the international exhibitors and visitors of ANUFOOD China who would’ve been a remarkable “ingredient” to the exhibition and alongside the domestic counterparts’ involvement, making the whole show an efficient platform in the Chinese market.

Koelnmesse China, China Chamber of Commerce of Import & Export of Foodstuffs, Native Produce & Animal By-Products (CFNA), Shenzhen Retail Association, the 3 organizers jointly stated:

We remain dedicated to the goal of making a uniquely remarkable international F&B exhibition to revitalize the Chinese market. With the help of time and all the global concerted efforts in fighting COVID-19, the new date will allow us not to compromise the quality of the show while at the same time to have extra efforts in producing an ANUFOOD China as a one-stop platform where quality brands and suppliers expand network and meet trade buyers, supporting programs like conferences & cuisine competitions enrich the whole exhibition experience.

Restore, refresh, revitalize - the rescheduled ANUFOOD China will bounce back together with the resurgent market, and be poised to establish a comprehensive platform covering the food and beverage market in Southern China.

We welcome all the exhibitors, visitors and industry colleagues from all corners of the world to meet in Shenzhen, China in April 2021.
