Food & Drink Business ran head-on into Day Two of foodpro 2023 as doors opened today, 24 July.

Our Food & Drink Business foodpro podcast hub went live with publisher Lindy Hughson starting the day on the podcast’s YouTube live stream. For those who missed the live stream, head to Food & Drink’s LinkedIn page to watch.

The first guest of the day was Damian Smyth from Label Makers Group, who joined Lindy to discuss sustainable labels.

Pippa Haupt then took over hosting duties, and was joined on the podcast by Terrance Ryan of NCS Australia, who gave an insight into its NCS's new FreshFocus software solution, designed for the fresh food industry. 

Kim Berry was later joined by chocolatier Santiago Cuyugan from Mamecoca, to talk about natural food colourings in chocolate, and to discuss his creation on display on the show floor: an entirely edible chocolate garden made using Oterra’s natural colours.

Trimatt Systems founder Matt Johnson joined the podcast later in the day to discuss digital printing on sustainable packaging, and to bring the news of the successful launch of Trimatt's new CupPro600, a unique to the world machine designed to print food grade ink onto paper cups, ideal for SMEs.
