Visit Südback 2017

Südback LogoThe Südback is one of leading exhibition in Germany for the bakery and confectionery trade. The last years the Südback has become an important fair for the exchange of ideas, opinions and information, as well as for the presentation of trends, developments and technical innovations.

Around 700 exhibitors meet with almost 40.000 professionals in the baking industry. Not only from Germany, also bakers from Austria, Switzerland and Eastern Europe find their way to the Südback in Stuttgart. 

"Life Is Too Short for Bad Bread" was the theme this year and I have to admit, no bad bread has been found on this show. 

Beside the many bakery equipment manufacturers and suppliers, bakery ingredient suppliers where showing their top quality products. Mostly fresh baked on the booth. 

The Südback is a great fair for gaining new bakery product ideas. Especially ingredient suppliers are showing their new products and ingredients.
Most equipment manufacturers are showing their current product portfolio. New innovation / development from the equipment manufacturers will be shown during the next IBA in 2018. 

After talking with many exhibitors, it is clear that this exhibition is attracting more and more professionals from outside the German speaking countries. Bakers from Spain, Italy, Israel and Russia are showing more interest in this show.  

Overall it has been a great experience to be on the Südback and I'm looking forward to come back in September 2019.
