New Zealand’s biennial Food & Beverage Manufacturing, Packaging & Processing Technology trade event, Foodtech Packtech (FTPT), is on track to be the biggest in over a decade with leading industry suppliers from all over New Zealand and many from overseas participating this year.

Nearly 200 exhibiting companies will be showcasing the latest technologies, products and services to inspire New Zealand’s Food & Beverage manufacturing, packaging and processing industry. Held at the ASB Showgrounds, Auckland on the 11th – 13th October the event covers all facets of food and packaging industry capability.

“There’s a huge pipeline of innovative new products being launched onsite at the show, in some cases southern hemisphere firsts,”says the organiser XPO Event Manager Deb Haimes

EPNZ, for example, are bringing the latest industrial inkjet printers from LEIBINGER, representing the highest level of quality and reliability in product marking – perfect for food manufacturers.  The automated Sealtronic nozzle seal always prevents the ink in the printhead from drying out. Together with Clean Instant Start and Stop Technology, it also ensures small-character inkjet printer start up on the production line every time without needing maintenance.  “EPNZ always looks forward to the Foodtech Packtech show,” says EPNZ Manager Gary Clare.

“It’s a great chance to see existing clients again and also brings the opportunity of meeting new clients and exciting challenges”.

The Foodtech Packtech 2016 theme of Adding Value to NZ’s Food Chain will be dominant over the three days through live product demonstrations, special features and a very full schedule of free industry lead education and learning seminars.  

This year’s event is co-located with the Materials Handling & Logistics Expo (MHL), which the organisers XPO Exhibitions are most excited about.“Bringing MHL to the show helps complete that value chain ‘pasture (or sea) to plate capability’ for food manufacturers.”  says Deb.

The overall event seminars are organised in partnership with NZIFST, bringing together leading experts and professionals to share their knowledge, skills and ideas that are critical to the sustainability and growth of the vibrant F&B industry.

“There is very strong industry support for Foodtech Packtech 2016,” says Deb “which, I believe, reflects the current industry and economic sentiment.  FTPT 2016 is set to showcase many amazing examples of successful hi-tech Kiwi Food & Beverage Manufacturing capability.”

“Every Foodtech Packtech, the buzz grows. With world-class seminars, the cream of suppliers, a myriad of opportunities to network and do beneficial business this is the not to be missed event for 2016.”
