food & drink technology Africa
food & drink technology Africa (fdt) is the youngest of the three subsidiary events in the drinktec family. It celebrated its premiere in Johannesburg in 2014, as a congress with integrated trade fair.
The organizers are Messe München International (MMI) and its subsidiary MMI South-Africa, 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 global and local 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. The next food & drink technology Africa (fdt) takes place on September 4 and 6, 2018 at the Gallagher Convention Center in Johannesburg.
