Our special exhibition section for the wine industry:
Process technology for the production / processing of beverages, milk and liquid food
Process technology is playing an ever more important role in the beverages industry. Ever more sophisticated products, ever tougher quality standards, and ever more complex legal requirements are making it essential to use process-optimized technology. drinktec showcases single- and multi-application process technology. The theme of sustainability plays a key role in both areas.
Filling and packaging technology
Flexibility, product safety, sustainability and ease of operation—these are the demands placed on filling and packaging plant nowadays. Not forgetting of course profitability. More and more product must be filled faster and faster, all in line with ever more rigorous standards of cleanliness. A clear trend is towards aseptic processes, as this guarantees long shelf life and freshness, even in warmer climates.

Containers, packing materials, equipment and closures
For beverages, too, packaging is critical in marketing. The more attractive the packaging and the better it is adapted to the target group, then the greater the chance of success. The secret to getting it right lies in a mix of creative ideas, practicality and high-precision production and labeling. All the innovations, new ideas and technologies are ready to experience live at drinktec.
Raw materials, agents and additives
A finished product is only ever as good as the ingredients that went into it. The product range at drinktec covers a very wide, high-quality range of raw materials, agents and additives. In the special area new beverage concepts new sweetening, coloration and aroma strategies are presented and explained by the manufacturers that supply these products.
Energy systems, water and waste water
No beverage is produced without using water. So, at the upcoming drinktec the theme of water processing and management will once again be a key topic. Examples are the latest developments in water processing using reverse osmosis, electro-deionization, ion-exchange systems—and lots more. In the battle to reduce consumption of valuable resources, there is a growing focus on the use of renewable energy in beverages manufacturing.
Beverage marketing, restaurant and catering supplies and equipment
drinktec is not only a technology forum, it is also a marketing platform. What happens at the point of sale? How can you influence customer purchasing behavior? These and other questions will be discussed in the Innovation Flow Lounge. This is a meeting place for marketing experts, product managers, purchasing executives, advertising agencies, designers and engineers. drinktec also features a comprehensive range of supplies and equipment for caterers, restaurants and also mobile facilities.
