tna Connects: virtual learning hub for food manufacturing

tna is launching a virtual platform called tna Connects, which is designed to provide the food manufacturing community with insight, innovation and inspiration. From sharing solutions to gaining a better understanding of the challenges facing today’s food manufacturers, the platform launches from 9–12 November with a series of four virtual roundtables on topics including: conveying, packaging, processing and seasoning.

Specialists from tna, alongside senior industry leaders from leading snack brands, including Richmond Baking, Campbell’s Snacks and World Food Products, among others, will guide the conversation and share examples from real-life challenges, instalment stories and solutions. Attendees are encouraged to submit questions prior and during the roundtables, with each 30-minute session also available to watch on-demand following the live events.

The discussions will supplement the product information and tna’s live sessions at Pack Expo Connects.

“The new online platform is a fantastic way for fellow professionals to connect and expand their knowledge — wherever they are in the world,” said Alf Taylor, Managing Director and CEO at tna. “With sudden fluctuations in product demand throughout the pandemic and changing consumer habits, the food industry has experienced considerable challenges in recent months. We want to create a community through which we can discuss challenges and share key learnings, as well as information about the latest technologies and innovations. All with a view to helping manufacturers take their production capabilities to the next level.”
