“Our Sourcing Center experienced tremendous success at other industry trade shows, such as PACK EXPO International, and our members always look forward to representing CPA at this opportunity,” says Ron Puvak, managing director, CPA. “Year after year, we find the need for contract packaging and manufacturing services remains high.”
Now in its second edition, ProFood Tech is powered by three of the world’s trade show leaders – PACK EXPO, Koelnmesse (organizer of Anuga) and the International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA).
“Participation by leading food and beverage processing associations in the ProFood Tech Partner Program is a truly unique feature of the event,” says Jim Pittas, president and CEO of PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies and producer of the PACK EXPO portfolio of tradeshows. “Not only is it an extremely valuable resource for the attendees looking for specific solutions and information – the participating associations experience the value of being an official partner with the show, supporting their members and the processing industry.”
PMMI Senior Director of Expositions, Laura Thompson, echoes his statement.
“The Association Partner Pavilion features leading industry associations offering unique insights into the latest challenges facing the processing industry,” Thompson says. “As the most comprehensive food and beverage processing show in North America, ProFood Tech is a can’t miss event for these partner associations in order to foster industry connections and support their membership.”
