Foodtech Packtech biggest show in over a decade

rsz_1fmcgb_xpo_2New 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. With still more than two months to go until kick-off, FTPT is well on its way to being a sell-out.

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, with many exhibitors excited at the opportunity to showcase and educate the market  on the latest innovations,” says XPO Event Manager Deb Haimes.

Hygiene Technologies, for example, will be launching a whole range of new products under its Fibreclean brand of food safety & hygiene equipment, including cutting edge Shadow Board systems, non-scratch cleaning pads, superior quality metal & X-ray detectable range, contamination clean-up kits, stainless steel storage racks and many more.

Glen Senior of Hygiene Technologies says, “we are looking forward to the 2016 FTPT Show, as from past experience we know it is a great forum to educate our market as to the solutions we offer and to introduce new products to our existing and new customers.”

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 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 Haimes.

The 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,” says Haimes, “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.”

Foodtech Packtech 2016 runs from 11-13 October at the ASB Showgrounds in Auckland. Industry professionals can register to attend for free at To see a full list of exhibitors visit
