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.

At the IFFA Kitchen visitors can see a production line with meat-processing machines in operation. Under realistic circumstances, food engineers will demonstrate how sausage is made several times a day – and the finished product will be available for tasting immediately afterwards.  

Go on a journey of discovery, and join one of the thematic tours of the fair to exciting novelties. For the first time for this year's IFFA, we are offering the "IFFA Discovery Tours" in the fringe program. Guided tours of various topics are offered daily from 4 to 9 May 2019. Participation in the approximately 1,5-hour tour is free of charge.

NOVADRY - The new Vacuum Pump Benchmark for Food Packaging & Processing

During this presentation the latest disruptive development in the field of vacuum pump technology for the food packaging & processing industry will be highlighted. Today, the most established vacuum pump technology in the market is the so called “oil-sealed rotary vane pump”. These pumps represent >80% of all vacuum pumps currently used in the food industry. Such type of vacuum pumps uses oil for lubrication, sealing and cooling reasons, mostly even non food-grade oil-types. Oil usage does for sure bear risks, as some amounts of oil will always be emitted into the food processing area. Oil could be sucked backwards into the evacuated machine, might leak out of the pump in case of bad maintenance and will be blown out of the pumps exhaust.  

Food quality and hygiene is becoming more & more crucial these days for food producers as well for the consumers. Any potential oil-contamination does endanger these requirements. For that reason Leybold developed the NOVADRY, the first 100% oil-free, completely dry vacuum pump on the market! The NOVADRY reduces the risk of oil contamination by the vacuum pump to zero. Next to this the pump offers great vacuum performance, lowest noise level combined with superior sound quality. It is most easy to install and operate. And at last it sets a new benchmark in energy efficiency, requires only lowest maintenance and by this reduces the operation costs to a minimum.

Being completely oil-free, the pump can be installed locally inside the food processing area without offering a hygienic risk. This can be done integrated into the machine or close to the machine inside one of the optional, standardized hygienic wash-down enclosures. At the IFFA 2019, the NOVADRY family will be launched in four sizes in the pumping speed range from 65 m³/h to 200 m³/h. This enables a wide range of food producers to upgrade their processes with a real hygienic alternative and to make them ready for the customer needs of today and tomorrow.  

The NOVADRY is a real game changing technology leap for the food processing industry! It is a part of the solution to offer really fresh and healthy food towards the consumer.
