As leading suppliers of a comprehensive range of packaging and processing equipment to the global food industry, Heat and Control is thrilled to support  APPEX, which aims to encompass all sectors of the industry.

Robert Marguccio, Heat and Control’s business manager – Packaging & Inspection Systems,  believes bringing everyone together for one show makes a lot of sense.

“As one of the founding members of the original APPMA – Heat and Control have been exhibiting solutions for the Australian packaging industry since 1987,” he says.

“We were part of Auspack since its inception, and we’ve seen the food processing industry grow exponentially since then.”

The company is ready to showcase their latest and most cutting-edge solutions for the food industry, emphasising efficiency, resource management and sustainability as trending topics, across the board.

“High performing, energy efficient, food processing equipment has long been our focus,” says Marguccio.

“The challenging market conditions have prompted many customers to explore avenues to adapt, upgrade or optimise their operations.

“We expect equipment and technologies to reduce fuel costs, energy waste, air pollution, and water consumption will be key talking points at this year’s show.”

The company will showcase a range of cutting-edge solutions, including the latest in high performance packaging and inspection solutions from leading brands Ishida, CEIA and Key Technology.

Processors of fresh produce, fruits, vegetables and nuts shouldn’t miss their booth. Precision slicing and dicing equipment from Urschel, global leader in food cutting technology, will also be of interest.

What’s on display: Key COMPASS Sorter; Ishida X-ray; Ishida Snack Bagmaker; Ishida Checkweigher and CEIA Metal Detector; Urschel Dicer and Slicer; and Ishida Commercial Scales.

Daily live demonstrations are planned, and an experienced team will be available to answer any questions.

Visit Heat and Control on Stand C160. APPEX is taking place on 12-15 March at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre. Free registration is open now.

The ACCC has instituted court proceedings against Clorox Australia, owner of GLAD-branded kitchen and garbage bags, over alleged false claims that bags were partly made of recycled 'ocean plastic'.

In news that is disappointing but not surprising given the recent reports on the unfolding Qenos saga, the new owner of Qenos has placed the company into voluntary administration. The closure of the Qenos Botany facility has also been confirmed.

An agreement struck between Cleanaway and Viva Energy will see the two companies undertake a prefeasibility assessment of a circular solution for soft plastics and other hard-to-recycle plastics.
