Bakery, Grains, Nuts, Seeds, Snacks

Bake [it].

Food industry professionals from the baking, grains, nuts, seeds, and snack food industries 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, pet foods, meat, and dairy that they’ll be able to incorporate into their baked products, giving them an advantage over their competitors.


Full Working Bakery Production Line

Back by popular demand, PROCESS EXPO suppliers are working together to run live demonstrations of a complete bakery line—right on the show floor. These demonstrations will occur several times a day throughout the show. See for yourself how different pieces of equipment can work with connecting components and how you can incorporate these products into your own plants. Speak with the suppliers face-to-face to discuss how they can customize the equipment for your specific needs.

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, consumer preferences, and 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.
