Industry Portrait

German mechanical engineering industry: Good starting position before IFFA 2019
The German meat processing machinery industry is in a good position in the run-up to IFFA: 2018 was the eighth year of growth for the industry. The production value grew by around 4 percent to almost 1.2 billion euros. Around 60 companies are active in the industry. Domestic business proved to be a strong driver of business development. Exports exceeded the previous year's level.
