Sydney-based company, BioPak will be exhibiting their range of innovative, environment-friendly food packaging products at the foodpro 2014.
The company will be one of over 300 suppliers exhibiting at foodpro 2014, Australasia’s largest and longest running food manufacturing trade show, which will be held in Melbourne for the first time. The exhibitors’ list includes companies specialising in food processing equipment, science and technology, food safety, packaging and handling.
Held once every three years, this year’s show will span over 20,000 square metres at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. The foodpro event offers a platform for food manufacturers to exhibit new developments and innovations in their field.
BioPak will be premiering a range of innovative new packaging solutions manufactured from rapidly renewable plant-based resources including sugarcane pulp. Also known as bagasse, sugarcane pulp is a by-product of the sugar refining industry, and a rapidly renewable material that can be composted alongside food waste without having to first separate it. The material is both microwave-safe and oven-able to 220°C.
BioPak’s Founding Director Richard Fine commented that their ongoing R&D investment in moulded pulp and bio-plastic materials has led to the development and supply of tailor-made, functional and cost-effective packaging solutions to replace a number of traditional packaging materials such as aluminium foil and conventional plastic.
Showcasing innovative solutions at foodpro 2014 will provide BioPak a wonderful platform to provide companies with alternatives that are functional and cost-effective, and also appeal to consumer demand for more sustainable packaging.
Foodpro Exhibition Manager, Peter Petherick says that foodpro 2014 is a great forum to showcase the future of the food manufacturing industry; this year’s event would focus heavily on the latest projects, innovative ideas and technological advances from leaders in the sector.
foodpro 2014 will run from Sunday June 22 to Wednesday June 25 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, Southbank.
