At every Foodtech Packtech we hand out hundreds of magazines and also farm animal-shaped stress balls. However, this year - to our horror - an incident of extreme chicken abuse occurred. An innocent chicken [stress relief ball] was misappropriated by a ruthless exhibitor, forced into a plastic bag and vacuum packed.
FoodTech Packtech is the place to be for NZ and Australian food processors this week. Held every two years, the exhibition gathers together all the major suppliers to the industry and visitors can see all the new equipment and technologies, talk to the manufacturers and distributors, attend relevant seminars and simply network.
