Thanks to support from several prominent bakery processors, there will be a live frozen pizza production line in action on the show floor during the October 8-11 Process Expo at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.
The McLean, Virginia, USA-headquartered Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA), organizer of the show, has announced that the following processors have donated materials for the production line: Miracapo Pizza, Nardone Bros. Pizza, Nation Pizza, and TNT Crust.
There will be live demonstrations of the pizza line three times daily for show visitors to observe the entire automated process from creation of the crust, through depositing of sauces and toppings and packaging of the finished product.
“It has been a pleasure to see our customers step up to support and embrace this project,” said Tony Graves, chairman of the FPSA Bakery Council. “Upon hearing some of our needs for this line, these processors did not hesitate to contribute because they see the value in what we are trying to do. These production lines highlight the latest innovations in processing and packaging technology and do so in live demonstrations with actual products for our attendee audience to see. It truly is a unique experience that processors don’t get at other industry events.”
“The Pizza Line is just one of the five lines that will be running at this year’s Process Expo,” said David Seckman, president and chief executive officer of FPSA. “The production lines at our last show were by far our most popular show floor activity, and for this reason we have expanded them into other segments.”
Attending the Frozen Pizza Production Line demonstrations is free of charge with Process Expo registration. Persons interested in obtaining more details about the show should visit: www.myprocessexpo.com.
