The international quality competitions of the German Butcher Association (DFV) take place on the competition area in Hall 12. Here, every butcher's shop involved can compete with the diversity of craftsmanship and the quality of its products in an international comparison. Not only the trophies, medals and certificates make the competitions attractive. They are also an important tool that companies use for self-monitoring and quality improvement.
The ‘International Quality Awards’ are organised by the German Butchers’ Association as part of the IFFA 2019. The aim is to underscore the immense importance of artisan made products and the tradition of these specialities. The awards should emphasise the quality of the products and are a great way for a company to promote itself.
The IFFA Forum combines
expert lectures during the morning with practical examples from exhibitors in
the afternoon, and highlighting an important industry trend every day.
On Saturday, the forum
will start in the afternoon, focusing on the topic "Food Trends:
Ingredients". On Sunday everything in the forum revolves around "butcher’s
trade and sales". The fair Monday will be dedicated to the top topic
"Production Optimization and Digital Solutions", on Tuesday experts
and exhibitors will shed light on the current state of "Food Safety".
On Wednesday, May 8, the IFFA Forum will be dedicated to the theme of
"Packaging", the final day of the fair, which will be held in the
morning, and will be dedicated to "Resource Efficiency". All lectures
are in German or English and will be translated simultaneously. The forum is
free of charge and open to all trade visitors.
