ANUTEC BRAZIL brings the latest news in technology for the meat industry
The event highlights the most up-to-date solutions in technology to meet the changing consumption patterns and consumer trends
One of the great challenges facing the food industry, especially with regard to non-processed products, is to preserve the food quality for days or weeks after they were packed. The companies in the food industry have been developing solutions in technology in order to increase the beef, poultry and fish lifespan despite it often goes unnoticed by the final consumer. These innovations are among the highlights of ANUTEC BRAZIL, the International Fair of Suppliers for the Meat and Animal Protein Industry, which will take place from August 7th to 9th at Expotrade Convention Center in Curitiba (PR), which gathers the world’s leading players in the sector.
Among the solutions brought by the event is modified atmosphere packaging (ATM) technology, which removes most of the residual oxygen present in the packages by introducing a mixture of gases (normally nitrogen and carbon dioxide) to preserve the product. “Minced meat usually lasts for up to three days on supermarket shelves or in domestic refrigerators when stored in a conventional polystyrene tray. If our trays with ATM are used for packaging it increases its lifespan up to 20 days”, summarizes Gilmar Fernandes, from HP Embalagens, one of the companies that has confirmed presence at the event.
In addition, the industry has been changing to meet the demands for environmentally conscious products. Nowadays, sustainability is a key concern for the majority of consumers and the companies are striving to serve them efficiently.
Kuraray, which also confirmed presence at ANUTEC, is one of the companies providing solutions for the industry. The company has developed Plantic technology, which is a type of plastic made from cornstarch that uses up to 85% renewable materials in its composition. The material works just like as plastic wrapping to pack products and sealing, it is 100% biodegradable and keeps odours and oxygen away from the food, preserving freshness and aroma.
“Times have changed and the industry needs to open its eyes. ANUTEC BRAZIL perfectly meets the purpose on updating the market bringing the latest news in technology. Those solutions will be presented both at the exhibit area featuring the world’s leading suppliers of the sector, as well as through the lectures in the conference program organized in partnership with ITAL, Food Technology Institute, in which we will address the latest news in technology and the future of the meat industry, “says Cassiano Facchinetti, Koelnmesse Brazil CEO.
In addition to the packaging sector, the fair also covers the processing, refrigeration, food safety, logistics, ingredients and services sectors. Some of the major leading global manufacturers of the industry have confirmed presence at the event: Ulma Packaging, Linco, SunnyVale, Bettcher, Tecmaes, Multivac, Poly-Clip, New Max, Jarvis, among others. “The fair gathers representatives from the whole animal protein chain, showing how the companies take part in the manufacture process from the slaughterhouse to the consumer table and that there is a whole chain responsible for ensuring the quality of the final product,” he says.
