MEAT+: thematic focus sections to complement the showcased technologies

MEAT-TECH 2018, the exhibition for the meat and fish processing and packaging industry, is launching theme sections devoted to several important steps in the production process. The refrigeration chain and equipment for production, cutting and packaging will take centre stage at the 2018 show.

Planning work on MEAT-TECH 2018 is continuing in order to respond to and anticipate market needs.

Part of THE INNOVATION ALLIANCE, the event organised by IPACK-IMA will be held in the Milan exhibition centre from 29 May to 1 June 2018 and is currently in the process of presenting the new MEAT+ project to its reference community.

Designed to meet the needs expressed by companies in the supply chain, MEAT+ will explore several important steps in the meat and cold cut processing and preservation process by combining an exhibition section (coordinated and located in a prominent position) with demonstration sections and training/informative events.

At the 2018 show these thematic focus sections will centre on refrigeration chain technologies, essential the world over for preserving products before, during and after processing, and the small-scale equipment for production, cutting and packaging of meat products that are increasingly used by large producer companies, large-scale distribution, retail stores and catering.

These consist of various types of machinery and materials that guarantee excellent product preparation quality while extending their shelf life.
