oils + fats

A leading renewable oils and fats production event


Anyone involved in the field of vegetable and animal oils and fats knows that the international fair that is a must is oils + fats. This is the only trade fair that specializes in the technology and process methods in the manufacturing of oils and fats. It’s precisely this status of uniqueness that cements its importance for the sector as one of the best platforms to create many business relations with representatives of foreign markets to a startling degree of relevance. This idea is further explored in the portfolio, which examines trends in laboratory technology, lubricants, filling machines, raw materials, filters, analysis, auxiliaries, transport containers, quality control, process control, sensor technology, oil trading and sealing. Not only are you able to pad yourself with sales leads, but you also get to see what the direction the industry is headed towards and act accordingly.


Munich, Germany serves as the official home of oils + fats, which given its high specificity is one of the events in the food sector with the biggest gap between editions. oils + fats is organised every four years and editions run for a total of three days in the second part of September. Admission is given to professional visitors only. Messe München performs a dual role as both the venue and the official organiser. There is no data about the working hours for the approaching edition, so be sure to check in on the official website when it draws nearer. Now onto the matter of transportation. Munich is one of the cities with efficient public transport, so if you’re not driving around, then you can either catch the metro or one of the suburban trains to get you there.
