Voices on SÜFFA 2023

  • "Overall, the mood was absolutely positive. Thanks to the wide range and high quality of the offerings, SÜFFA was able to maintain its importance as the top address for the meat industry. You could feel that there was a generally favourable investment climate. It is particularly important now to make the right decisions, because bold solutions often harbour great opportunities. Anyone who realised this came to SÜFFA. It was a fantastic trade fair with great visitors!"

    Joachim Lederer, State Guild Master of the State Guild Association for the Butcher's Trade in Baden-Württemberg

  • "SÜFFA exceeded our expectations. We were literally overrun by a good trade audience. The sour-pickle period after the energy crisis is definitely over - the mood is noticeably better again and we received concrete enquiries."

    Steffen Cyris, Managing Director of Schrutka-Peukert GmbH

  • "Overall, there was a great atmosphere at SÜFFA! We met an interested trade audience from Germany, Austria and Switzerland, who showed great interest in innovations and new products."

    Thomas Pfeiffer, Area Sales Manager Retail South of BIZERBA SE & Co. KG

  • "Due to the compulsory corona break, visitors were obviously suffering from SÜFFA withdrawal symptoms - there was a lot going on. We met the right clientele here, are absolutely satisfied and will definitely be back for the next SÜFFA!"

    Martin Fuchs, Sales Manager South at Albert Handtmann Maschinenfabrik

  • "As a Stuttgart-based company, SÜFFA is a home game for us and one of the most important trade fairs for the meat industry. In addition to the contact and dialogue with existing, long-standing customers, we welcomed new contacts from Austria, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, France and South Tyrol, but also from Spain and Poland to our stand. The three days of the trade fair were a complete success for us and we are already looking forward to the continuation in 2024."

    Andreas Seydelmann, Managing Partner Maschinenfabrik Seydelmann KG

  • "The general interest was great, the customer frequency super. We see ourselves as a partner to the trade and met a great professional audience here. The demand for vegan food is growing, as is the trend towards snacks. That's why our spice mixes and marinades were in great demand - the same applies to our sausage casings. SÜFFA went very, very well for us, we are very satisfied. Next time - we'd love to!"

    Ingo Singer, Sales Manager DeliCo Germany South, RAPS GmbH & Co. KG

  • "SÜFFA 2023 got off to a good start on Saturday. We were extremely positively surprised by the number of visitors and there was also a lot of professional interest. We had many good discussions and are confident that a lot will happen afterwards. Germany is one of our focus countries for the future, so I assume that we will also be present with a stand at the next SÜFFA."

    Michael Moser, Project Management, Marketing & Communication, Maschinenfabrik LASKA Gesellschaft m.b.H.

  • "Game meat is booming. Interest among butchers is very high, as many customers want to eat a little less meat, but of a higher quality. As food professionals, butchers enjoy the trust of their customers, which is why co-operation with the State Hunting Association is so important. SÜFFA offers an ideal platform for dialogue and networking!"

    Samuel Golter, Förderung Wildbretvermarktung, Landesjagdverband Baden-Württemberg e. V.

  • "We were exhibiting at SÜFFA for the first time and were able to present ourselves here as a new brand in the region. We were pleased with the consistently positive response to our offer and are very satisfied overall, also with the organisation of the trade fair, the processes and the helpfulness of the trade fair staff. As things stand now, we will definitely be back at the next SÜFFA."

    Francesco De Luca, Vertrieb, EDREI e.K.

  • "We wanted to appeal to the traditional trade here and met a professional audience who took a lot of time and were happy to get advice. Our product has the consistency of meat and was very well received at SÜFFA because more and more butchers are also offering catering and want to include vegan dishes in their range. We were able to convince many visitors and make good contacts, so I think that follow-up business will also be very promising."

    Dörte Ulrich, Owner, Lord of Tofu

  • "We are very satisfied with customer frequency and visitor quality. We were pleasantly surprised by how many family businesses were present at SÜFFA. That was very nice, because it created a pleasant atmosphere. Interest and willingness to invest were clearly noticeable. SÜFFA offers an ideal platform for future planning. We'll be back next time!"

    Hans-Dieter Schad, Managing Director, Rudolf Schad GmbH & Co. KG

  • "We were at SÜFFA for the first time and met many craft businesses, many of which were from the region, but also from further afield, such as Austria or France. We had many interesting discussions, particularly on the topics of recycling and ecology. It was particularly pleasing that we were able to establish contacts with organisations such as ZENTRAG and the Schwäbisch Hall producers' association. I see a market for us here and think our presence at SÜFFA was definitely worthwhile!"

    Piotr Janik, Commercial Director, Food Pack Ltd.

  • "SÜFFA was a success from our point of view. We were able to provide good advice and show how companies can take the topic of energy, which is often regulated by associations, into their own hands. We were also able to address guilds and associations directly. Overall, we realised that the need for information in this area is still very high."
