ANUTEC BRAZIL will have exclusive workshop with innovations and solutions in packaging for the animal protein sector
Repeating the success of the last edition, the organization will be in charge of the Packaging Institute, a reference in the sector in teaching and research.
ANUTEC BRAZIL, International Fair of the Meat and Animal Protein Sector, has one more confirmed attraction for the next edition: the exclusive workshop about packaging for the protein market, organized by the Packaging Institute, with trends, innovations and cases presented by specialists. The fair will happen from 26 to 28 May 2020, in Curitiba.
“Last year, when we promoted this workshop for the first time, the result was excellent, above the expected, both in criticism and in public,” says the director of the Packaging Institute, Assunta Camilo. “We want to repeat the success at the next ANUTEC. To take knowledge to the companies and visitors in order they can follow and evolve”.
“The times have changed and everybody needs to open their eyes. That’s why, ANUTEC BRAZIL seeks to update the market with the latest technologies, either with the exhibition part, where the main worldwide suppliers of the sector will be present, as well as through workshops. Partners such as the Packaging Institute and the Italian (Food Technology Institute) reinforce our team in order to bring innovations and attractions to the event to be more complete”, says Cassiano Facchinetti, general director of Koelnmesse Brazil, organizer of the fair.
Assunta recently returned from Anuga, the world’s largest meeting for the food and beverage market, also held in Germany by Koelnmesse, which organizes ANUTEC BRAZIL. There, it was possible to identify that packaging is converging to become more sustainable and practical, while improving the presentation of food and keeping it preserved for longer.
She cites, for example, reduced use of plastics and regulations to ban single-use plastics in packaging – a standard that is expected to expand to more countries in Europe. There are also new materials, such as Phormanto, that double the shelf life of foods and, with vacuum, prevent the liquid that some proteins release.
“Brazil is the greatest worldwide supplier of animal protein and, as such, it moves a lot of money and packaging. It is estimated that 65% of the packaging is focused on food and beverages,” says Assunta. “Because of this, it is important that national players stay tuned to changes in the market, even to keep on an equal footing with international competitors.
According to Assunta, the Packaging Institute believes in better packaging for a better world. That is why it is so important to be present at a fair that brings together the main players in the animal protein industry in Brazil. “For us, events like this are very valuable. Even more so now, considering the good outlook for the coming years, with the increase in exports and the recovery of the domestic market.
