"At Danske Fiskehandlere, the board fully supports the postponement, which has been requested by all collaborators, whose industries are currently deeply affected by the corona situation in Denmark. Therefore, it is the right decision from MCH to postpone Foodexpo to 2022, where we again see a great need in the market and among our members for a food trade fair"
- Carl Ahrenkiel, Board Member, Danmarks Fiskehandlere
"Postponing Foodexpo is both a correct and necessary decision, and we fully support the decision, which has been taken on background of requests from all partners, whose industries are currently affected by the corona crisis in Denmark. Along with the overall buying behaviour in the industries, this speaks in favour of postponing the fair until March 2022, when we again see a great need in the market and among our members for participating at Foodexpo"
- Claus Bøgelund, Chief Operating Officer, De Samvirkende Købmænd
"Fødevareklubben fully supports the postponement, which has been taking on background of the request of all our partners, whose industries are currently impacted by the corona crisis. To postpone Foodexpo to 2022 shows a sense of responsibility and timely care from MCH, and we are convinced that there again will be a great need in the market and among our members for a food trade fair in Herning"
- Erik Würtz Knudsen, Chairman, Fødevareklubben
"The corona crisis in Denmark has affected all of us widely and deeply, and therefore it is both wise and necessary to move Foodexpo to next year. At Kost og Ernæringsforbundet (Diet and Nutrition Association), we are very much looking forward to meeting many nutrition professionals at Foodexpo in March 2022. This is an important forum for them and us in terms of getting new inspiration within gastronomy, health, food and sustainability, which was also on this year's program."
"We applaud and fully support the postponement. The corona crisis has major consequences for many of the industries related to Foodexpo, and we expect that it will take some time, before we can return to more normalized conditions. Therefore, we at LBI have also recommended postponing the fair in 2022, where we all hope that business are more up to speed and that the possibilities to meet in the food industry will return again."
"At Bager- og Konditormestre in Denmark, we were looking forward to being part of Foodexpo at MCH Messecenter Herning, but we fully support the postponement. Our industries are currently widely affected by the corona crisis , and along with the buying behaviour in the industries, we see great benefit in postponing the fair until 2022, where we again see a great need in the market and among our members for a food fair in Herning."
"For us it is the only right decision to postpone Foodexpo until 2022, where we are hopefully in a completely different societal situation than now. Therefore, I am sure that Foodexpo will be even bigger, better and with more visitors, including a lot of merchants, in a year. By then, Denmark will be on the other side of the corona crisis, which requires large investments from all of us in relation to innovation and marketing.”
"It is a very serious situation, we are currently in in Denmark, and our industry is very affected by the corona situation. Therefore, it is with great professionalism and responsibility by MCH to move the fair, so we can all look forward to Foodexpo 2022, where we again see a great need in the market and among our members to meet at Foodexpo at MCH Messecenter Herning. "
"NBL fully supports the postponement for the sake of the fair's many exhibitors and visitors - and thus also for the sake of the fair's overall success. Our industry is currently deeply affected by the restrictions in Denmark, and together with the buying patterns in the industry, it makes great sense to postpone the fair until the spring of 2022, where we will hopefully be back on track and ready for Foodexpo in Herning."
"There is no doubt that it is the right decision to cancel Foodexpo next year. Even if the vaccines are implemented in January 2021, we are still looking into a year, where uncertainty will still dominate, and planning a fair of this size takes a long time. As an industry, we have a strong urge to network and meet with each other - more than ever before. But we will wait with patience untill 2022."
"Our industry is right now affected both broadly and deeply by the corona crisis in Denmark, and together with the trade patterns in the industry, it is the right decision to postpone the fair until the spring of 2022, where we again see a great need in the market and among our members for a food fair in Herning. We are therefore looking forward to gathering again in 2022 for the largest food trade fair in the Nordic region"
"In BFS and BKC, we believe that moving Foodexpo to March 2022 is the right decision for both the exhibitors and the visitors, who hopefully by then have their respective businesses back on track after the corona crisis."
"Kantine & Køkken fully supports the postponement, which has been decided on basis of requests from all partners, whose industries are currently deeply affected by the corona situation in Denmark. It is therefore the right decision to postpone the fair, untill the situation is hopefully stabilized. We look forward to the spring of 2022, and for now it gives us almost a whole year to market and communicate the large program and the many activities, thereby creating even greater interest in visiting the fair."
