The Processing Zone Returns To PACK EXPO

The Processing Zone returns to PACK EXPO Las Vegas and Healthcare Packaging EXPO, taking place Septem- ber 27-29, 2021, at the Las Vegas Convention Center as a direct response to industry demands and will showcase front-of-line solutions from food processing/systems, food safety, engineering, design and construction services and more, according to show producer, PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies. “Many of the technologies in packaging and process- ing work in unison, and PMMI learned from attendees at previous shows that the ability to find complete solutions from the beginning through the end-of-line was a priority,” said Laura Thompson, PMMI Vice President, Trade Shows. The Processing Zone will showcase improving and newly unveiled technologies for industries like baking and snack, beverage, meat and poultry, dairy and produce, so attendees can source leading front-of-the-line processing solutions—while continuing to solve their packaging chal- lenges. It will also offer targeted education via its process- ing-dedicated Innovation Stage. Another new educational addition to the PACK EXPO Las Vegas and Healthcare Packaging EXPO roster is the Cold Pressure Council Annual Conference. Scheduled for the last two days of the show and brought to you by the Cold Pressure Council, the conference will feature High Pressure Processing (HPP) best practices, market trends, packaging material insights and uses and tips for packag- ing HPP products from leading food processor and ser- vices supplier experts. The Cold Pressure Council leads, facilitates, and promotes industry standardization, user education and consumer awareness of high pressure pro- cessing via its membership of HPP suppliers and consum- er packaged goods (CPGs) companies who use and advo- cate for the technology. A dozen industry partners are already lining up in sup- port of the event as part of the PACK EXPO Las Vegas Partner Program, including the Association for Contract Packagers and Manufacturers (CPA), Institute of Packaging Professionals (IoPP), The Organization for Machine Auto- mation and Control (OMAC), Flexible Packaging Associa- tion and more.
