Processing, filling, packaging and logistics
food & drink technology Africa (fdt) is the third and most recent addition to the drinktec family. It premiered in 2014 in Johannesburg, South Africa, as a congress with integrated trade fair. The organizers are Messe München International and its subsidiary MMI South-Africa, which is based in Johannesburg. The conceptual sponsor is the Food Processing and Packaging Machinery Association of the VDMA (German Engineering Federation). The event, taking place every two years, brings together mainly global manufacturers of food processing machinery, beverages technology and packaging machinery with producers of foodstuffs, liquid food and beverages that operate in the region (southern Africa). An integrated exhibitor forum focusing on case studies with specific relevance to the needs of the regional market provides an opportunity for knowledge-sharing and professional development.
