Digital fair - [email protected] 2021

IFS @ Anuga 2021  

This year, IFS has chosen to be only virtually present at the Anuga fair. Still, you can also find a special IFS Pillar on the exhibition grounds. It is in the mid boulevard in front of hall 4.

In this virtual booth and on this special website, you can find information about IFS that is of particular interest to the fair's visitors.

The Anuga Sweepstake by IFS

We invite you to participate in our Anuga Sweepstake by IFS and win the book "IFS Food 7 – how to pass the assessment". The author, Miroslav Suska, has donated ten books that we will raffle among the participants. It is the only book available on the market explaining the IFS Food version 7 standard, requirement by requirement. Based on experiences from certification assessments around the globe, it gives practical guidance on how to implement them and pass the IFS Assessment.

How to take part:

1) Take your smartphone, and make a selfie next to or in front of the IFS Pillar at the Anuga                               
2) Post your picture on LinkedIn, tag @ifs-international-featured-standards in your post or picture and use the hashtag #anugasweepstakebyifs
3) We will raffle 10 IFS Food 7 – how to pass the assessment books among all participants who have posted their selfies and inform the winners.
