Forty five German suppliers will be exhibiting in the pavilion organised by the Central Marketing Organisation of the German Agricultural Industries (CMA). Visitors will see over 1,000 product lines under 150 brand names of which many, says the CMA, are suitable for all sectors of the food industry. Fifteen of the German exhibitors will be at IFE for the first time, five of whom will be looking for UK importers. The CMA will launch a cookbook titled Modern German Food, written by food writer Roz Denny and containing over 70 recipes. It will be available in bookshops from May at £8.99, but retailers visiting the show can obtain the book for £5. The German pavilion will also house two designated features on organic food and products developed specifically for the foodservice market. CMA UK director Kurt Bettin says: "Germany has the highest per capita consumption of organic products in Europe. With over 70% of the UK's organic products currently being imported from elsewhere, the importance of Germany within this growing sector cannot be underestimated." Part of the organic area will include a stand from first time exhibitor, Oma d'Beers, representing 10 independent cheesemakers and 150 lines. The foodservice area will include hourly product presentations, tastings and serving suggestions. First time exhibitor Coppenrath Feingeback will be looking for UK importers for its range of snack biscuits, as will Pauly for its mini baguettes. Saarlander (UK) will be there to announce its new marketing deal with quality chilled and frozen meat producer Zimmerman, while among other companies looking for UK importers are Fricopan Back for its deep frozen bakery products, Frischli Milchwerke for its UHT dairy products and Hans Poppenburg for its vacuum packed frankfurters. New products under the German banner include a traditional Westphalian longlife bread, an Ace juice drink and a strong lager called Brinkhoffs. New beverages include a green tea drink, an isotonic drink called ISO light and a lager under the brand name of Bitburger Drive. {{FOCUS SPECIALS }}
