The industries Viking service include fresh and processed meat, poultry, seafood, dairy and other chilled food products.

Stuart Mead, Director of Viking Food Solutions said: "First impression is the last impression and that in a rapidly growing economy, no one understands this better than owners in the food industry.

"These are just two of the solutions that we will have on our stand at AUSPACK 2015."

Summit Machinery

Julie Taylor, General Manager, Summit Machinery said as a first-time exhibitor they hope to bring a "different perspective" to AUSPACK as they have been firmly based in the processing equipment field for over twenty-five years.

Summit Machinery is active in the vegetable, salad, cheese, meat and nut industries across Australia and New Zealand.

Summit Machinery have their own range of salad washers, spin dryers, trim tables, conveyors, elevators and ancillary equipment and they also represents FAM (Belgium) size reduction machinery, (dicers, slicers, shredders), Stumabo (Belgium) industrial machine knife manufacturers, Dofra (Holland) processing machinery for the potato, onion and capsicum and Tenrit (Germany) processing machinery for carrots.

"Summit Machinery believes that AUSPACK will be a good fit for our offerings as any company looking for new packaging solutions has to, in the first-instance, produce the product to be packed," Taylor said.

"This is where Summit excels and can offer the AUSPACK visitor a 'one stop' solution for all their processing equipment needs. We are planning to showcase the FAM Centris, FAM Flexifam and Tenrit solo carrot peeler on our stand as well as other processing equipment."

The processing equipment side of AUSPACK continues to grow and welcoming new exhibitors such as Viking Solutions and Summit Machinery will add true value to the visitor experience.

AUSPACK 2015 will be held on the 24th to the 27th of March at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.

AUSPACK is owned and presented by the Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association (APPMA), Australia's only national packaging and processing machinery organisation.
