Delegation Trip to Germany: Food and Beverage


Innovation technology meets food trends

On behalf of Germany Trade and Invest, in cooperation with the Invest in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern GmbH, we are pleased to invite you to our upcoming inbound delegation visit which aims to highlight Germany’s industrial strategy and the latest business opportunities in Europe’s largest market.

The event will take place in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany’s high-tech location for Food Ingredients, from Monday, September 18, 2023, until Friday, September 22, 2023. Invest in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern GmbH co-creates the visit with industry-specific knowledge.

Companies in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern are pioneering in the thriving market of alternative, bio-certified and plant-based proteins, which is growing annually by more than 30%. Mecklenburg-Vorpommern offers an excellent location thanks to its proximity to Hamburg, Berlin, Central Europe, Scandinavia, and the Baltics. The region convinces with skilled workers in the food innovation area, great infrastructure, an efficient production network and already established suppliers such as ingredients manufacturers and processing industries.

During the visit, you will have the chance to see the latest developments in food technology by visiting leading companies in the field as well as high-class research institutes, such as the Fraunhofer Institute. Innovative highlights in the region’s industry are the extraction of protein from Blue Lupin, legumes and insects and its procession to flour, protein isolate, starch, and fibers.

Additionally, you will have the chance to visit the “Norddeutscher Ernährungsgipfel”, an event focused on the food industry that brings together key figures from business, industry, politics, and associations. Further, experts in the field will discuss Mecklenburg-Vorpommern’s latest research and developments in the field and share best practices.

GTAI covers many of the program costs for participants, including hotel accommodations, transportation to all visits within Germany, the facilitation of all meetings, and select meals within the scope of the program. There is no separate program fee. Participants are responsible for their own airfare to and from Germany and for meals that are not part of the official program.
