Versatile presentations and discussions on cutting-edge topics
The supporting programme was also well received. Dr Rowena Arzt, Head of Exhibitions at WZF: "In addition to the multiple innovations of the exhibitors, Interzoo participants benefited from insights into central industry topics and market overviews, for example in the Country Sessions on Western Europe, Brazil, Scandinavia, China and the USA. The Petfood Forum Europe, which was held for the first time with Watt Global Media at Interzoo with around 250 participants, was also well received the day before the start of the fair."

Sustainability was also a central topic at Interzoo. "According to our study conducted with the Antwerp Management School (AMS), almost 90 percent of the nearly 200 respondents from 44 countries assume that sustainable development will be important or very important for the pet industry in the next three years, " says Dr Arzt.

On Friday, the last day of the fair, a jury of experts selected the best innovative ideas on stage as part of the first Interzoo Fresh Ideas Contest. Prombyx from Germany won first place with the recycling of by-products of silk production as an alternative protein source, the Sustainable People, also from Germany, established themselves in second place with biodegradable dog waste bags, followed by Protenga from Singapore as number three of the winners with sustainably produced insect protein.
