INTERNORGA Honored Trio of Forward-Looking Companies
In addition to welcoming more than 1,300 exhibitors from Germany and abroad and hosting nearly 100,000 show visitors, March’s multi-day INTERNORGA 2019 in Hamburg included Future Awards for three companies cited as trendsetters driving the foodservice market forward and standing out for efficiency, responsible entrepreneurial spirit or exemplary sustainability.
Technology & Equipment: WMF Group for CoffeeConnect, an integrated databank for all product and process data, providing SaaS (Software as a Service) for central management of all coffee machines operated in a company.
