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 Frozen Pizza Production Line

PROCESS EXPO 2019 featured a complete live frozen pizza line, moving raw ingredients from the creation of the crust through the depositing of sauces and toppings all the way through to packaging of the finished product. This unique experience gave attendees the chance to see a wide range of technology in action and learn which components they might be able to incorporate into their projects.


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.
