PROCESS EXPO 2019 Innovations Showcase Awards

Innovations Showcase

Have you recently introduced a product or technology that is changing the way food processors do business? Or have you implemented a new application or new audience segment for an existing product?

Attendees come to PROCESS EXPO craving new products and cutting-edge solutions. Their needs may focus on safety, labor, transportation, management or any of the many details that integrate into a food processing and packaging plant. Don’t let them leave PROCESS EXPO this October without a thorough understanding of your capabilities.

Entries for the Innovations Showcase are now closed. Finalists will be announced on August 16, 2019.
