TNA Australia , a leading supplier of turn-key integrated packaging and processing solutions for food production companies worldwide, has announced an agreement to furnish the packaging equipment for Senyorita for Snacks’ new snack food production facility in 6th October City, Egypt.
Senyorita for Snacks, a privately-held leading manufacturer of snack foods in Egypt, has purchased over 20 fully integrated systems featuring TNA Australia’s robag 3 baggers. Each system will include a TNA Australia multihead scale, SmartDate 5 coder and metal detector to complete the packaging lines for potato and tortilla chips.
The highly efficient vertical form, fill, and seal (VFFS) equipment will be installed from the beginning of August, 2007.
“After considering several options, TNA Australia’s robag emerged as the best choice for our project,” says Mr Nabil Fesikh, Chairman.
“Senyorita for Snacks chose TNA Australia’s equipment after a review and selection process concluded TNA Australia’s low waste, high speed, as well as ease of operation and low maintenance, will provide the greatest overall efficiency for our packaging operation. We’re confident in our decision and look forward to teaming with TNA Australia.”
“This is a particularly exciting installation for me since I was born and raised in Egypt,” says Nadia Taylor, director, TNA Australia.
“We are eager to participate in the growing snack and food markets in the Middle East. TNA Australia established a regional office in Dubai in late 2004 to service the Middle East market from a local base – this gives us greater ability to support the customer completely, and fully commit to the region. Over the past 12 months, we have stepped up our marketing and channel development efforts to keep pace with the regional growth."
