26th Edition of the International Exhibition for Equipment, Technologies, Raw Materials and Ingredients for the Food Processing Industry

Agroprodmash 2021 is a number one trade show in the food processing industry in Russia. Agroprodmash showcases all main food industry trends. It is organised in cooperation with Russian federal authorities, business support organisations, and industry associations.

The organisers have managed to bring back the traditional six pavilions for the exhibition in this rather difficult year. The large-scale showcase will live up to the status of the largest show for the food processing industry in the post-Soviet space, to which the visitors have become accustomed over the years.

State support measures facilitate the introduction of new Russian equipment to the market. According to our exhibitors, Agroprodmash provides a unique opportunity to build a solid portfolio of orders, sign contracts, and enter new markets. By investing in participation of regional companies in the exhibition, the authorities are investing in the region's economy.

The format of participation based on co-financing from regional budgets is becoming increasingly popular. This year, about 40 Russian companies from 14 regions of Russia used this state support tool: the Udmurt Republic, the Belgorod, Chelyabinsk, Kaluga, Kirov, Kursk, Omsk, Orenburg, Rostov, Saratov, Sverdlovsk, Tula, Vologda, and Yaroslavl Oblasts.
