“For us, Iraq is one of our main markets in the region as we see a large potential in the industrial sector. However, several months back, prior to confirming our participation at the show, we were skeptical of the footfall due to the pandemic. But now, after busy days at our booth we can say the show has definitely exceeded our expectations by leaps and bounds as we met customers from all the Iraqi provinces.

Not only the number and quality of the visitors were brilliant as most were professionals from within the industry and appreciate the high-quality European machines that we supply. But also the show organisers did an excellent job.”

What the exhibitors said

  • Hans Akerboom

    Consul General - Kingdom of the Netherlands

    It‘s the first time that we are participating at an agro fair here in the Kurdistan region. We are very happy that now ten Dutch exhibitors are participating. That is huge!

    The Netherlands is one of the biggest investors in agriculture in the Kurdistan region, and we have a very close connection with the government, for example the Ministry of Agriculture. This trade show is very professional, and I am happy to see that this kind of event can be organised here.

  • Ali Nalmo

    Sales Manager – Aytav Poultry

    Aytav Poultry as one of the largest poultry equipment manufacturers in Turkey. As we have realized projects in Iraq and keep on servicing them, Iraq is a major market for us. Here at the show, we meet with clients in need of general contractors for their agro & poultry projects. We are glad to say that this Agro Show exceeds our expectations by far.

  • Halit Shasheet

    Business Area Manager – BASTAK

    Bastak is the Turkish export leader in flour and feed quality control laboratory instruments, flour additives and improvers. Iraq represents a huge market in the agricultural sector. Here at the show, we have received decision makers from government, but also from potential agents interested in representing us on the Iraqi market.

  • Jean S. Zacca

    CEO – Zakka Multitec

    For us, Iraq is one of our main markets in the region as we see a large potential in the industrial sector. After busy days at our booth, we can say the show has definitely exceeded our expectations by leaps and bounds as we met customers from all the Iraqi provinces. Not only the number and quality of the visitors were brilliant as most were professionals from within the industry and appreciate the high-quality European machines that we supply. But also the show organisers did an excellent job.

  • Mustafa D. Al-Tamimy

    MEPEQ

    MEPEQ provides turnkey solutions for packaging industries in liquid food, beverages and chemicals.

    We regard Iraq as a developing market with an improving purchasing power as more and more factories are established. Here at Agro Pack, our target is to raise awareness for investments in high-quality and high-performance machines, despite the price argument. And we are satisfied as many investors have already visited our stand during the first two days.

  • Ghazwan Kafil Idan

    Trade Marketing and Distribution Manager – Atyaf Algeed (Givaudan)

    Iraq is a very important market for our company especially since the Iraqi government supports and protects the local food production. Our clients for our flavours, fragrances and ingredients are owners of factories for the soft drink, juice and chips production. Agro Pack 2021 is an excellent and very important event for us to enlarge our horizon of communication and to increase the cooperation between suppliers and project owners. Therefore, we expect prosperity and growth of our company as a result of this event.

  • Feras al Khateeb

    Export Sales Manager – Siniora Food Industries, Amman – Jordan

    Iraq has got the largest population in the region, that’s why the Iraqi market is so important to us. We expect the market to grow steadily over the years to come.

    During the past two show days we could discuss business with retailers, end users and distributors. We are satisfied with the outcome so far and we hope to close more and more deals also over the coming two days.

  • Zafer Sönmez

    Export Sales Specialist - yayla

    Yayla Agro is a market leader in the pulses industry and exports in 100+ countries. As we are very close to Iraq, everybody here knows our brand.

    We have made some new leads with interest in our products here at the show. And we have talked to many who want to become our distributor. This is exactly what we have been looking for.
