The annual Agroprodmash international exhibition for equipment, technologies, raw materials and ingredients for the food processing industry didn’t stop during the pandemic. It appears to be not only a unique case in the exhibition industry but also a barometer to assess the situation in the food industry.
Judge for yourself, in 2020, 39.1% of the visitors came Agroprodmash for the first time. This is quite a substantial renewal of the audience. Besides, the exhibitors say, and the registration statistics confirm, the lion’s share of the visitors work in food production and food processing. Moreover, 76.2% of the visitors make or influence purchasing decisions.

The Agroprodmash visitors are interested not only in equipment for food and beverage production but also in packaging, filling, refrigeration, storage, test, and weighing equipment.
