The Russian exhibition for food processing equipment, technology and ingredients, Agroprodmash, has been steadily growing for almost 25 years. At first, in the 1990s and early 2000s, the demand for state-of-the-art equipment was dictated by an urgent need to upgrade food processing enterprises across all former Soviet republics. Today, the aims of the Russian food industry are no less ambitious. The main goal is to produce highly competitive foodstuffs and beverages, and enter new export markets.
Agroprodmash is the perfect indicator of the Russian food and food processing industry. Since the very beginning, one of the key and substantial sectors of the show has been the salon of equipment for meat, poultry, fish and seafood processing. In 2018 it featured equipment of 156 manufacturers. The most significant growth was seen in sectors of equipment and ingredients for cheese and dairy production, confectionery and bakery. Quality control and occupational safety also generate a lot of interest among professional visitors. For the most part, the success of Agroprodmash is built on its perfect format. Here one can find equipment and technology for all steps of food and beverage production from raw material processing, production and packaging to storage (cooling and freezing equipment) and logistics.
Agroprodmash is organised by Expocentre with support from the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Russian Ministry of Agriculture, and under auspices of the Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The show bears approved event logos of the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry (UFI) and the Russian Union of Exhibitions and Fairs (RUEF).
