IRAQ’S LARGEST AGROFOOD EVENT

All set for Iraq's largest industry specific event

The 4th Agro Pack & 2nd Iraq plastprintpack 2021 in Erbil

Iraq's largest agrofood event, Agro Pack Iraq Erbil, is building on the huge success of its three previous editions, most recently from 20 to 23 November 2019, when 151 exhibitors discussed business with 7,245 trade visitors from across Iraq. And Iraq's largest plastprintpack event expands on its highly successful debut in Baghdad in April 2019.

To create synergies for exhibitors and trade visitors alike, the 4th Agro Pack & 2nd Iraq plastprintpack will be held simultaneously at the Erbil International Fairground from 23 to 26 November 2021. 

Exhibitor community at 2021 event is representing a wide spectrum of the entire value chain – Already 106+ exhibitors from 9 countries registered

The organising Sofuar & fairtrade team has been preparing the 4th Agro Pack & 2nd plastprintpack Iraq 2021 with much commitment over the last months. Therefore we are all the more proud that our exhibitor community represents a wide spectrum of the entire value chain.

In this way, we have succeeded in creating a platform with a strong community so that 106+ exhibitors from 9 countries and trade visitors from all over Iraq and neighbouring states can once again engage in conversation, tackle projects and work together.

The exhibitors come from Afghanistan, Armenia, Iran, Iraq, Italy, Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates - and there are still many more to come.

Superb institutional support: Opening of Agro Pack Iraq Erbil on 20 November 2019

The extent to which this event has meanwhile established itself in Iraq can also be seen from the VIPs who officially opened it.

Official country pavilions from Afghanistan, Iran, Netherlands and Turkey

Afghanistan Pavilion

“Afghan…Naturally” - Afghan dried fruit, nuts, seeds, spices and other horticultural products will be presented under the banner ‘Afghan… Naturally’ by a delegation of Afghan exhibitors. This is the first year that Afghan businesses will be exhibiting in Iraq, although trade between the two countries has been buoyant for several years – particularly in relation to sesame seed, dried apricots, pistachios and sorghum. The Afghan businesses planning to participate already have connections with Iraq that they are looking to expand upon.

Iran Pavilion

More than thirty Iranian companies will showcase their products and solutions in the official Iranian pavilion, supported by the Trade Promotion Organization of Iran.

Netherlands Pavilion

Dutch exhibitors participate with a custom-made stand. In addition, the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality is organising a Netherlands Lounge available to the Dutch business community. In collaboration with the Consulate General of the Netherlands in Erbil and at the request of participating companies, matchmaking will be provided during the exhibition days.
