Processing machinery focus for AUSPACK 2015

Tuesday, 14 October, 2014

AUSPACK 2015 will continue its focus on processing machinery. With less than five months until the 30th anniversary show, a host of companies have already signed up.

“Companies such as tna Australia, Heat&Control, Walls Machinery, Krones and JL Lennard are just some of the processing exhibitors returning in 2015,” said Luk Kasprzak, portfolio director - industrial division, Exhibition and Trade Fairs.

“In addition we have international processing companies such as Daxner Pacific, Lothar A. Wolf Speizialmaschinen, as well as first-time exhibitors Viking Food Solutions and Summit Machinery also exhibiting next year.”

Viking Food Solutions offers a range of food processing and packaging solutions from vacuum packaging equipment and materials, dip tanks and shrink packaging to tray sealers, trays and film and food labels. Viking services a range of industries such as fresh and processed meat, poultry, seafood, dairy and other chilled food products.

“The first impression is the last impression, and in a growing economy, no-one understands this better than owners in the food industry,” said Stuart Mead, director of Viking Food Solutions.

According to Julie Taylor, Summit Machinery’s general manager, the first-time exhibitor hopes to bring a different perspective to AUSPACK as it has been firmly based in the processing equipment field for more than 25 years.

The company is active in the vegetable, salad, cheese, meat and nut industries across Australia and New Zealand. Along with its own range of processing machinery, the company also represents FAM (Belgium), Stumabo (Belgium), Dofra (Holland) and Tenrit (Germany).

“Summit Machinery believes that AUSPACK will be a good fit for our offerings as any company looking for new packaging solutions has to, in the first instance, produce the product to be packed. This is where Summit excels and can offer the AUSPACK visitor a ‘one-stop’ solution for all their processing equipment needs. We are planning to showcase the FAM Centris, FAM Flexifam and Tenrit solo carrot peeler on our stand as well as other processing equipment,” Taylor said.

AUSPACK 2015 will be held over 24 to 27 March 2015 at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre. AUSPACK is owned and presented by the Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association (APPMA). For more information about the event, visit
