Annapoorna 1
4. November 2015

Interesting products and delicacies from all over the world were shown at this year’s “Annapoorna – World of Food”. The international fair for food and beverages took place in Mumbai from October 14th to 16th and welcomed an average of 400 visitors per day.

With their visit to the Austrian group stall, both Dr. Oskar Andesner, trade commissioner of Austria in India, and Dr. Bernhard Wrabetz, ambassador of Austria in India, participated in this event.

From an Austrian perspective eight interesting companies were involved: Darbo, a producer of high quality jams, Hauswirth, famous for its chocolate specialties, Invivo Spirits with their typical Austrian schnapps, Hillinger, known for subtle wines, the liqueur producer Nannerl and the beverage manufactures MG Puma and Simulith. The latter especially attracted attention for their leather pants outfit. Particularly pleasing to hear was that the family company Obst Kröpfl, one of Austria’s biggest exporters of apples, could already win a contract on site.

Adding to that the fair was concluded by a networking cocktail at the Westin Hotel in Mumbai. Thereby the Austrian participants had the chance to connect with Indian businessmen and representatives of Austrian subsidiaries.

In 2016 the “Annapoorna – World of Food” will be merged with “FoodTech”, an exhibition for technology in the sector of food and beverage production. Due to this wide range many Austrian participants are expected to attend next year.
