food & drink technology Africa (fdt Africa) is a biennial trade fair held in Johannesburg, South Africa. The trade fair and its accompanying program (including a high-quality exhibitor forum) is the third successful offset of Messe München’s drinktec, the world’s leading trade fair in the beverage and liquid food industry.
fdt focuses on technologies for safe, hygienic and resource-efficient production and packaging of foodstuffs, liquid food and beverages.
fdt focuses on current developments and trends along the entire value-added chain: from raw materials handling, processing, filling and packaging through to logistics.
fdt provides a platform for networking and exchange of expertise.
fdt will bring international and local manufactures of all kind of food processing machinery, beverages technology and packaging machinery together.
The exhibitor forum will be supplemented by the exhibitors within the industries
Synergy between research and industry
In 2016, fdt Africa launched the “exhibitor forum“, providing a platform for exhibitors to present their latest case studies, innovations and technologies directly to the audience of fdt Africa.
Along side the show, we were proud to host the Research and Teaching Institute for Brewing in Berlin (VLB Berlin), MicroBrew Symposium South Africa. With a total of 65 participants, Juliane Rahl, Editor, PR, Events, Versuchs und Lehranstalt für Brauerei in Berlin (VLB), Germany had this to say: “The VLB MicroBrew Symposium South Africa (MBSSA) was a complete success. In part, that is because VLB Berlin was able to hold its event as part of the supporting program of fdt Africa. After the symposium, participants and organisers had a chance and the time to hold discussions with one another and with many of the exhibitors at the fair. We feel that the MBSSA and fdt Africa are an outstanding combination and look forward to collaborating again in two years.”
