At this fall’s PROCESS EXPO, taking place on September 19-22 at McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago, working production lines will be running — the first time this has ever happened at an industry trade show, the company said in a press release.
Multiple suppliers will collaborate on two lines. The deli line will incorporate stuffing, slicing, and packaging, and the sausage link/hang line will include a bowl cutter, mixing, stuffing, linking, and hanging.
These suppliers will participate in the production lines:
- AmTrade Systems, Inc.
- GEA North America
- Handtmann, Inc.
- JBT Corporation
- Mimasa a PRIMEdge Inc. Company
- RapidPak – Middleby Processing and Packaging
- Nu-Meat Technology
- Poly-clip System
- Viskase Companies, Inc.
- Weber, Inc.
“These production lines are a great way for processors to see the full line in action, to avoid potential purchasing mistakes, and discuss issues, ideas and thoughts with the suppliers face to face that might make a production line more effective and efficient,” said Jarrod McCarroll, CEO, Weber, Inc. and Chairman of Meat Industry Suppliers Alliance (MISA) for The Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA).
