The Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) has announced the list of manufacturers who will be participating in the frozen pizza production line that will be on working and display on the PROCESS EXPO 2019 show floor.
PROCESS EXPO will take place October 8-11, 2019, at Chicago’s McCormick Place and there will be live demonstrations of the pizza line, three times daily to show attendees the entire process from creation of the crust, through depositing of sauces and toppings and packaging of the finished product.
Participating exhibitors in this line include: Benier/Naegele, CMC America, Grote Company, Handtmann, ILAPAK, Intralox, Mettler Toledo and Praxair.
Tony Graves, chairman of the FPSA Bakery Council said: “While obviously this line will appeal to pizza manufacturers, we feel that it will also draw interest from a wide variety of food processors given the different stages of production that they will be seeing in the demonstration. You don’t just go from raw materials into a mixer and come out with a packaged frozen pizza without a high degree of coordination and technology working together to produce a superior product. Our customers understand that clearly and for this reason, they can truly appreciate a production line that brings together eight top flight equipment manufacturers. Even if pizza is not their segment, this line gives them ideas for applications for other product lines that they might not have thought of without seeing it here first.”
David Seckman, president & CEO of the FPSA, comments: “The PROCESS EXPO Production Lines are something you just don’t see at other trade shows, due to the fact that they are too complicated to pull off. However, as these have been the most popular destinations on the PROCESS EXPO show floor, we know that this is what our customer base is looking for. The lines and their accompanying demonstrations provide the perfect practical complement to our exhibits as the attendee gets to see the technology in action.”
