Committed to the reactivation of the sector, Andina Pack has been the host of more than 173 exhibitors in the food, beverage, pharmaceutical and cosmetic sectors in Bogotá Colombia.

Andina Pack, the leading Processing and Packaging trade show in the Andean Region, Central America, and the Caribbean, took place 9-12 November in Bogotá Colombia, bringing together the latest innovations in technology after a year marked by the pandemic. The technological innovations presented to 14,000 trade professionals were distributed across the following industry sectors covering the entire value chain in the production of food and pharmaceuticals: ingredients, processing technology packaging, intra coordination, food safety, printing, and labeling.

Once again, exhibitors highlighted Andina Pack to be a show with excellent quality clients, many machines sold onsite, which boosted business throughout the week.

The feedback from our exhibitors and visitors has been incredibly positive from day one, confirming the importance of face – to face exhibitions compared to other kind of events. Andina Pack 2021 had even more leads at this show and more all-around quality engagement with attendees than our last edition before the pandemic.
