  • Dear Reader,

    September 18 to 20, 2013 – Have you made a note of these dates in your diary yet? If not, you might want to do it right now! Because these are the dates for oils+fats in Munich – the world´s only trade fair for the technology and trade of oils and fats.

    This is the place where machinery and component manufacturers will be presenting their innovations, and it´s where producers, processors and not least traders from all over Europe will be coming to catch up on all the latest information and developments.

    Our bet is that you will definitely want to be a part of this event. Thankfully, you still have time to do so. If you would like to exhibit, just contact us, or register straight away online. Visitors can also secure their tickets online as of March 2013. The advantage of buying online is that a Print@home ticket costs only half as much as a ticket bought at the venue. And, once you´ve printed it out, you can use that print-out to pass straight through the turnstiles into the exhibition halls.

    Another tip: A ticket to oils+fats also opens the doors for you on drinktec, the World´s Leading Trade Fair for the Beverage and Liquid Food Industry. drinktec 2013 takes place between 16 and 20 September 2013, in other words, its dates overlap with oils+fats.

    It will certainly be worth having a look around the halls at drinktec, because beverages fillers and liquid food producers frequently use technologies similar to those that are employed in the oils and fats industry.

    Please note: The venue for oils+fats and also for drinktec is the Messe München exhibition center in the district of Riem in Munich. Two years ago, oils+fats took place (without drinktec) in the smaller MOC Event Center.

    Any questions? You might find the answers online at www.oils-and-fats.com. If not, please contact us. We would be pleased to help.

    And, we look forward to meeting up with you again in September at oils+fats.

    Cay - Turkish Tea

    Tea is an important part of the Turkish culture (in 2004, Turkey had the highest per capita tea consumption in the world). Offering tea to guests is part of Turkish hospitality, tea is most often consumed in households, shops and mostly kıraathane, which is social congregation of Turkish men.

    Despite its popularity, tea became the widely consumed beverage of choice in Turkey only in the 20th century. It was initially encouraged as an alternative to coffee, which had become expensive and at times unavailable in the aftermath of World War I. Upon the loss of southeastern territories after the fall of the Ottoman Empire, coffee became an expensive import. At the urging of the founder of the republic, Atatürk, Turks turned more to tea as it was easily sustainable by domestic sources.

    The tea, called çay, is typically prepared using two stacked kettles specially designed for tea preparation. Water is brought to a boil in the larger lower kettle and then some of the water is used to fill the smaller kettle on top and steep several spoons of loose tea leaves, producing a very strong tea. When served, the remaining water is used to dilute the tea on an individual basis, giving each consumer the choice between strong or weak. Tea is drunk from small glasses to enjoy it hot in addition to showing its colour, with cubes of beet sugar.
