VICTAM International 2019

by Vaughn Entwistle, Managing Editor, Milling and Grain

VICTAM International 2019 took place at the KoelnMesse Hall 6 in the beautiful and historic city of Cologne, Germany, on June 12-14th. The show, which welcomed over 5,000 visitors, is run every four years.

VICTAM is the world’s largest event for the animal feed processing industries. The show runs concurrently with GRAPAS EMEA, which focuses on the grain, flour and rice milling industries.

In addition to technical conferences and seminars, the large show hall hosted manufacturers from around the world, who brought their latest and greatest equipment to show off to interested buyers.

The GRAPAS Innovations Awards
This year, Milling and Grain magazine presented the GRAPAS Innovations Awards for the best in cutting edge technology from food industry manufacturers. There were some amazing innovations on show from both feed and food processors.

Although the feed industry is dealing with problems such as African Swine Fever (ASF) and geopolitical unrest, such as the ongoing trade war between the USA and China, the mood at the show was upbeat and positive, which reflects increasing investment in the industry and impressive advancements.

In his opening remarks, Sebas van Ende, General Manager of VICTAM International, noted that the need for food safety, sustainability and traceability has clearly been recognised by the industry which is responding with new practices and innovative technology to address these issues.

On June 13th, Features Editor Rebecca Sherratt hosted the GRAPAS Conference to an audience eager to learn more about the latest in milling technology. Find out more about this in the following report.
