As exhibitors we were pleased with the cross-section of the NZ food manufacturing industry that visited our stand. Well worth our investment.” Daniel Currie, Simpro Every two years we bring together the very best industry suppliers of food manufacturing and packaging solutions so that New Zealand can better realise its potential to safely deliver quality pasture (or sea) to plate solutions to the world. We’re filling one missing part in this journey with a new contingent of materials handling and logistics solutions providers to help realise our full export potential. Across the halls you will see 240+ exhibitors covering important capability issues – everything fr m food s fety, processing and s curity technolo y through to industri l packaging and preservation solutions, and now the addition of specialist product handling and logistics. You’ll find a great deal of support, tools and education onsite to steer your business in the right direction, whether you’re starting out with a good food idea or expanding major production lines to meet new market needs. M ke sure you pl n your visit around the 3 full days of industry seminar hosted nd organised by the NZ Institut of Food Science & Te hnology, nd our new partners the Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport .

The XPO Team, event organisers of Foodtech Packtech & MHL. MARKETING SUPPORT Foodtech Packtech and the Materials Handling & Logistics Expo received an extensive marketing and promotional campaign with a combination of mass media including multiple insertions across regional daily newspapers and features within the NZ Herald. Add to this a powerful and targeted advertising campaign across leading industry publications, direct mail, major visitor prizes and an active social media campaign we were able to reach 1000’s of industry professionals. We thoroughly enjoyed our (Chemz) first time experience of exhibiting at the Foodtech show with some fantastic leads generated we would never have reached otherwise. The way the event was so well precision driven, publicity, web site, facebook etc is a credit to your team. Yes we will be back in 2018 with a more in-depth plan of inviting customers to attend as this time we only book at the last week prior to opening. Congratulations to all of your team.
