October 8–11, 2019    McCormick Place    Chicago, IL USA    Pure Processing. Proven Results.


Bakery, Grains, Nuts, Seeds, Snacks

Pure Processing. Prosperous Innovations.

Food industry professionals from the baking, grains, nuts, seeds, and snack food industry come to PROCESS EXPO because no other trade show offers the wide variety of cross-over technologies they’ll find among our exhibitors. These savvy processors know they’ll find solutions from other segments like prepared foods, meat, and dairy that they’ll be able to incorporate into their baked products, giving them an advantage over their competitors.

Attendees to PROCESS EXPO come in search of complete equipment, ingredient, and supply solutions, including the latest advancements in:

  • Food processing technology
  • Packaging materials and systems
  • Food safety and sanitation
  • Solutions to help maintain and grow your business

Just as interests in this segment vary, the wide-scale coverage you’ll see on the show floor and in the education sessions will cover challenges you face with cold storage and transportation, and consumer preferences, as well as ingredients and flavors. In addition, technology is changing the way bakeries compete and how they communicate with consumers. As the economy improves, incomes rise and so will consumption of snacks. Pizza producers are in a hot market as usual and continue to differentiate based on flavors and meeting the needs of demanding consumers. Keeping up with the latest technology and emerging trends is the only way to gain a competitive advantage.
