GEA will present their process expertise, technology leadership and customer-centric services for a wide range of food processing industries at this year’s Gulfood Manufacturing fair in Dubai from October 29 – 31, at booth D1-64, A1-64 in hall 1.
Key processing equipment and packaging exhibits will demonstrate the benefits of automation; optimal process control; as well as the efficient use of resources, energy and labor in food manufacturing. GEA’s food processing and packaging equipment and solution lines strive to deliver maximum performance at each stage of the journey from ingredients to a delicious food product.
Highlights at this year’s fair include the new GEA MultiJector 2mm, a new multi-purpose brine injector with flexible needles and the GEA MaxiFormer for the effective production of drum formed meat. The new and award-winning solution for in-line smoking of meat, poultry, seafood and meal components on GEA CookStar spiral oven will be demonstrated to the Asian market for the first time. In the area food packaging, the vertical packaging machine GEA SmartPacker SX400 will be shown and offers convenient and inexpensive means of packaging a wide variety of convenience goods.
Having acquired the Italian Pavan Group, technology group GEA and Pavan will join forces at this year’s Gulfood Manufacturing trade fair for the first time. Pavan, a leading manufacturer of extrusion and milling technology for processing diverse fresh and dry pastas, cereal-based snacks and breakfast cereals, will present its technology know-how to booth visitors.
Likewise, attendees will get to see the GEA Lab Homogenizer TwinPanda 600. The homogenizer is a small table-top unit designed for continuous operation at high pressure and is the perfect machine for laboratory-scale, high pressure processing of dairy products, fruit juices, liquid food, food additives and ingredients. The RAY PP (Pilot Plant) batch freeze dryer is equally well-suited to small-scale and R&D drying of general food products such as instant coffee, fruit, vegetables, herbs, meat, seafood and pet food, as well as very sensitive products such as lactic acid bacteria and enzymes. The new dryer more closely mimics the characteristics of larger industrial plants allowing more accurate scalability to full production.
In-depth knowledge-sharing and experiential sessions
GEA will present a new way of sharing its expertise and experience with visitors at the company’s booth. Customers and interested parties are invited to book a VIP time slot – choosing from among 15 different technology topics which will be presented by GEA experts – which allows them to set the agenda for their personalized in-depth knowledge session. Topics will cover GEA’s diverse expertise in food processing and packaging, beverage, butter making, bakery and pasta extrusion and milling.
