MeatTech Asia 2013 is a brand new feature, presenting international suppliers active in technology to slaughter and process pig and poultry meat.
Throughout Asia, the demand for equipment and new technology has experienced a massive boost as slaughterhouse operators and meat processors search for efficient systems to speed up processing, manage food safety and reduce costs in terms of manpower, floor space and energy. Opportunities associated with the launch of the Asean Economic Community in 2015 are also fostering increased investment and upgrading of processing and packaging lines. Already some equipment suppliers have seen of sales of cooking equipment in Thailand double as producers opt for complete solutions that offer better yields rather than stand-alone machines.
It is these advances that will be addresses at MeatTech Asia 2013. This special feature consists of a presentation of 25 suppliers at the exhibition, representing some 40 leading brands of equipment for slaughtering and meat processing.
In addition to the MeatTech Pavilion at the exhibition, Asian Meat Magazine (a publication of Asian Agribiz) and VIV present a conference on March 13 and March 14, running each day from 14h00-16h00. Topic for both conferences will be Automation in Action with participating companies Ducool, Foodmat, FPT Food Process Technology, Linco Food Sytems, Lima S.A.S. and Marel Stork Poultry Processing.
On Wednesday and Thursday, a selection of companies will present their vision on the contribution of automation to specific items of meat slaughter, processing and packaging equipment. Every company gets just 10 minutes to present its vision and solutions, followed by a closing 20-minute question session.
