Vladimir Mitsak, Matimex Ukraine CJSC:
We are regular participants of this exhibition. This year, we have slightly changed our participation format, i.e. we represent less equipment. Today, our company represents the entire range of meat processing products and we demonstrate it at the exhibition.
Konstantin Chaykovskiy, Invent Group:
We offer food grade oils for food safety. And nowadays we sell more products than a few years ago. This means that manufacturers understand their mission in terms of food safety.
We liked this exhibition. It is great that is was organized this year. Our goal is to show that we are working actively and are ready to deliver our services.
Dmitriy Seryi, Agrotehnologii, IC (Kiev):
We represent products of the Spanish company "Fibran" - collagen casings - on the Ukrainian market.
Every year, exhibition format changes - it becomes multi-faceted. I liked it better when it featured companies representing meat processing equipment.
We can describe our participation in this exhibition as a way to build our company's image. We represent marking equipment of the company "Domino" on the Ukrainian market. We bill ourselves as an executive class company. All of our production facilities and laboratories are located in Europe.
Grigoriy Boldyr, Samshit LLC:
We hope that participation in this exhibition will give an additional impetus to the development of our company. Though it is very representative, yet we worked productively, our stand was visited by potential customers with whom we communicated effectively and who understand what they need. Our company is known on the market as a supplier of aromatic compositions of the German company "Symrise".
Natalia Gorbatenko, Collective Stand of the Netherlands:
This year, the Holland Pavilion hosted companies, which participate in the PIB FoodTechLink Ukraine public-private partnership. This partnership has been made possible thanks to the support of RVO Agency in The Hague-NL and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Ukraine.
As for the show, the Holland Pavilion participates in this exhibition since 2012. This year, more than two dozen companies took part in PIB FoodTechLink Ukraine. We would like to thank the organizers for maintaining their brand against all odds.
Aleksandr Dundal, DUNDAL Food Industry Solutions LLC:
Exhibition, as many other processes in the country, reflects the state of our economy and the situation in the country in general. This year, the event was not very large and not everyone could take part in it, primarily because of lack of funds. But we had a lot of useful negotiations on this small area.
Denis Protsenko, Nasha Trade House:
Our main objective of participation in this exhibition is to meet with clients, who have long been working with us, discuss new products, sign new contracts, make arrangements for future cooperation, as well as to meet new potential customers and to promote our products in the Ukrainian market. Also, we are beginning to think that it is the right time to appear on the international scene.
I would like to advise our brothers in trade to join this exhibition because it is company image. And I wish this exhibition to expand further.
Oleksandr Sharapov, Inox Time:
This exhibition is quite saturated. We have had a large number of customers from small and medium-sized enterprises.

Roman Bevziuk, Technolog Ukraine LLC:
I wish this exhibition to keep the same size and scale as in previous years. And I believe it will.
Igor Schvaika, Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine:
We hope that active participation of world-renowned leaders in INPRODMASH &UPAKOVKA 2014 will contribute to further development of the domestic market of equipment and technology for the food processing industry and stimulate the domestic manufacturers to produce competitive products, as well as contribute to further integration of Ukraine’s food sector in the world markets.
Aleksandr Kuts, Director of Food Department of the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine:
Modern food processing industry of Ukraine ensures country's food security. INPRODMASH &UPAKOVKA further modernization of production, introduction of new technologies, and thus enhance the competitiveness of domestic production capacity and production volumes. Today, our producers export more than half of value added products.
I would also like to note that this exhibition is aimed to further the resolution of issues related to the production diversification. Under the conditions of fierce competition and "economic wars", it is necessary to develop those areas that enable us to replace imports and to increase exports. One of such areas is the production of baby food. The scientific and practical conference on the prospects for the development of this sector was held within the framework of the exhibition. Currently, production of baby food is intensively developing thanks to innovative technologies. This year it grew by almost 10%.
Benno Grimberg, Director of Grimco Trade Holland (the Netherlands):
We were very happy to take part in international exhibitions INPRODMASH &UPAKOVKA 2014 and had the honor to invite Ukrainians to the Dutch pavilion, organized with the assistance of the Agricultural Counsellor at Royal Netherlands Embassy in Kiev, Ukraine. People, who have visited our pavilion, could meet with the leading Dutch suppliers of food equipment, packaging lines and storage technologies. All of them are actively and successfully working in Ukraine for a long time.
I am filled with admiration for ACCO International Exhibition Company for taking such a courageous and forward-looking decision as holding INPRODMASH &UPAKOVKA exhibitions this year! I am convinced that this was the only right decision. Despite the fact that the current situation is extremely complex, it is necessary to show our faith in the prosperous future of Ukraine.
On the 27th of June the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has signed the economic part of the Agreement on establishment of a free trade area between Ukraine and the European Union. This agreement will eliminate existing trade barriers and open new markets consisting of the 28 EU Member States and more than 500 million consumers for Ukraine’s exports. Ukrainian food industry has the potential to occupy a niche in the EU market. I am convinced that Ukrainian companies will take advantage of this opportunity. Some of them are ready for it, but others need time to adapt. Experienced Dutch suppliers of food equipment, packaging lines and storage technologies will gladly support them.
Bogdan Magola, Commercial Director of Matimex GmbH (Vienna, Austria):
Ukraine has all chances to become a rich and prosperous country. I have no doubt that Ukraine will join the European Union, but it can take some time for political and economic changes to take place. People have to start with restructuring themselves. Prospects exist. A good example is our company, which has made a significant contribution to the development of the Ukrainian meat processing market by implementing European level projects. Principles and methods of work are the same for our Austrian and Kiev offices.
In spite of a difficult time for Ukraine, we have to continue our work and to fully support customers and domestic meat processing industry as a whole.
Іvan Grod, Director General of Matimex-Ukraine (Kiev):
We were offered not to participate in the exhibition this year, because it can be ineffective in view of the difficult situation in the state. In my opinion, now, more than ever, we need to show the world, including through the organization of exhibitions, that Ukrainians want peace; they want to grow wheat, produce food and work for the future. God helps us. This year, Ukraine had a record grain harvest.
Our participation in this event is meaningful for our foreign partners, whose products we represent in the Ukrainian market. We are proud that foreign guests have come to INPRODMASH &UPAKOVKA. It is extremely important for us, because in this way they showed us that they support Ukraine.
We are very happy with our participation in these shows. Virtually all equipment represented at the exhibition was sold. So, it's not so bad. Today we have promising projects on the reconstruction of meat plants - from cattle slaughtering to the manufacture of finished product.
Edgar Petrosyan, Head of Representation of Wiberg GmbH:
Participation in INPRODMASH &UPAKOVKA, held in Kiev, was strategically important for our company. Indeed, the main news of additives market 2014 is that Wiberg now works with Ukrainian meat producers directly and through regional partners. A lot of people visited our booth. It was a pleasure to note that the products of our company are well-known and respected in Ukraine and that the producers are open to dialogue and cooperation.
Here, at INPRODMASH &UPAKOVKA, we were able to see that a lot of pleasant emotions and memories of Ukrainian producers are connected with our products. The success story of many meat processing plants for decades has been closely associated with the products of our company. Therefore, Ukrainian production engineers take Wiberg additives as something native, near to their hearts and even favorite. It was very touching to realize that in the course of communication with our stand’s visitors.
Konstantin Samojlenko, Director of Representation of Ferdinand Henneken GmbH:
We participate in these exhibitions for 12 years. Each year, we strive to present new products from the leading European manufacturers. We also give advice to our clients and help them buy only what they need. It is very important for Ukrainian producers in today's economic situation. The exhibition was also quite interesting this year. We have found a lot of new business partners.
Igor Gedz, Director of Teko Trade, LLC:
Honestly, we did not expect great results from the participation in INPRODMASH &UPAKOVKA this year. But we are very satisfied with the results, including the number of contacts.
We saw that the market did not come to a standstill: there is a "movement" in the meat industry and the dairy as well. Also, we noticed a great interest of visitors in fish processing equipment. Many shops and small manufacturers are adjusting or expanding the production of cold-smoked fish products in view of the increasing demand for them in big cities.
Our main finding was that we realized that the company, which did not stop developing due to the war and is tuned to work in a peaceful environment, will certainly win.
Galina Dremaretskaya, Consultant and Production Engineer of Agrogest-Ukraine, LLC:
We are regular participants of INPRODMASH &UPAKOVKA. This year, our stand was visited by both new customers and old partners. We solve our production issues, offered new technological solutions, helped select equipment at our meetings. We are going to participate in these exhibitions in the future. As they say, in the same place at the same time.
Marina Zaychehko, Director of Ecogroup Ukraine, LLC:
Though our company is on the market for 6 years, this year we participated in INPRODMASH for the first time. And it paid off! We presented lubricants TM PETRO-CANADA for meat, confectionery, bakery and other industries. These lubricants have a high degree of purification - 99%. We are satisfied with participation.
Aleksandr Rudkovskii, Sales Manager of Vacuum Technology, LLC:
Vacuum Technology, LLC is the official representative of Busch Company - world-renowned manufacturer of vacuum equipment - in Ukraine.
We showcased pumps, as well as accessories and filters for them, vacuum greases, compressors with various modifications at the exhibition. As for the exhibition, it was a success for our company. Thought the exposition was smaller than usual, what is understandable in the current situation, it was very active.
Katerina Dzhiviriaga, Director of Sales Department of Voleks, LLC:
As a seller, I am pleased that our company took part in INPRODMASH & UPAKOVKA. It is never too late or super-consistent to show that the company works, develops and is ready to fulfill any order.

Our sales geography covers all Ukraine. Most of our partner companies are located in the Eastern and Central regions, because entrepreneurs of Western regions often buy equipment in neighboring European countries.It is too early to analyze our work at the exhibition, but I can say that we have seen interest of Ukrainian partners and that is why we can state that we can expect positive results in the future. A lot of specialists visited our exposition; they were interested in meat processing equipment.

Inprodmash & Upakovka 2010 for our company was more successful than last year's exhibition. Representatives of the meat industry were the main visitors of our stand. Also, great interest to integrated IT solutions for food industry was expressed by Ukrainian enterprises of dairy, bakery and confectionary industries. Taking into account the fact that CBS - System Company appeared on the Ukrainian market only four years ago, we are very pleased with the results of exhibition, the way it was organized, and we hope that new contacts will bring relevant results.
Next year we plan to take part in it, and hope that more visitors' of Inprodmash & Upakovka trade fair will visit our stand.
Sergei Vorontsov, head of the Gas Technology Department, "Linde Gas Ukraine"
Inprodmash & Upakovka 2010 Exhibition was worth it. Among the visitors were potential customers. Many have expressed interest in our suggested innovations. I think that next year we will also take part in this exhibition.

Comments of the participants about the exhibition 2009:
Marcyn Bogush, Director of the RDW sales department, "Schaller" Company
"I have a very positive attitude towards the exhibition, though I thought less people will be present. It should be mentioned that the quality of projects improved. The quality of preparation also improved because we are constantly afraid of something. That means that the results will be more convincing.
I liked the mood of my colleagues: cheerful, optimistic, good. As of the exposition of "Schaller" company, it is the first time when we participated without any equipment. Is there any sense in displaying equipment that everybody knows? If the manufacturer wants to demonstrate equipment, he should show it in operation – on the plant, but nor at the stand.
A lot of new ingredients and recipes were shown, but little equipment. Time changes everything and any exhibition brings positive results."
Liubov Trohimchuk, "FOODSERVICE" DV
"Of course, our reply on the question of "participation or nonparticipation" was affirmative. Surely, it is better to visit all the plants and discuss the nuances of cooperation on the spot, but sometimes we cannot do so. At the exhibition we met many representatives of different enterprises. That is why we expect good results and productivity. We, as food additives manufacturers, are glad to see our colleagues here".

The companies, which work only in the field of packaging and package technology solutions, participate in the exhibition. Recently, enterprises paid great attention to the hygiene of packaging equipment. Producers of packaging equipment are moving in this direction and thus improving the quality of present technologies in terms of hygiene.
…Adjusting developed plans of programme to the market situation, producers have more time for development of new products and new facilities search. Actually, "Inprodmash & Upakovka "exhibition has become the informational place where enterprises can realize their plans for future. Nowadays, producers don’t have the opportunity to invest money into new equipment, but maybe it will become possible in a year. By the way, some exhibitors laid stress on the fact that the customer analyzes the correlation between price and quality before buying equipment. Nowadays, customers pay attention to the efficiency of invested funds but not to the prestige…"
