Iranian food technology imports increase by 23% to US $ 360.8 million in 2010 (VDMA)
iran food + bev tec 2011 takes place on the background of heavily growing Iranian food technology imports. According to VDMA - The German Engineering Association, Iranian imports of food processing and food packaging equipment, in 2010, have increased by 23% to US$ 360.8 million, compared to US$ 293.1 million in 2009.

With 313 exhibitors from 22 countries and 40,000+ visitors expected, the 18th International Food, Beverage & Packaging Technology Trade Fair provides an ideal business platform for both, foreign food-technology exporters and Iranian food producers wishing to upgrade their production facilities.
