At FoodPex 2015, International Food Processing and Packaging Exhibition, Messe Düsseldorf North America (MDNA) will organize a US Pavilion with the support of the Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA). FoodPex 2015 is part of the newly launched SWOP - Shanghai World of Packaging, to be held from November 17 – 20, 2015 at the Shanghai New Exhibition Center (SNIEC). SWOP will consist of four trade shows, presenting all stages of the packaging value added chain and related processing segments (packaging materials production, package printing, pharmaceutical and cosmetic packaging, food processing and packaging, bulk and outer packaging).

As the US subsidiary of Messe Düsseldorf in Germany, renowned as the organizer of interpack – the world’s leading international trade fair for the packaging industry - MDNA has extensive knowledge managing USA group exhibits. FPSA is the trade association for suppliers to the food processing and packaging industry and the host of PROCESS EXPO, the largest food processing trade show in the Americas.

The US Pavilion offers exhibitors an all-inclusive turnkey package with a fully furnished booth, Wi-Fi internet access, an attractive lounge area with light refreshments, a bilingual hostess, extra meeting space and the onsite service of a project manager.

FoodPex 2015 will concentrate on packaging solutions for the food and beverage industry. The scope of the exhibits includes food packaging and processing machinery and accessories, food safety technologies, food preservation equipment, testing & measuring equipment as well as waste disposal and sanitation.

It is predicted that in 2015, China will supersede the U.S. as the largest food market in the world, with an anticipated increase of the market volume to more than EUR 1 billion. The country is experiencing growing demand in food processing and packaging due to the modern Chinese consumers’ demand for quality and hygiene in food. With authorities currently revising food safety laws for stricter food safety compliance and implementation, the food processing and packaging industry in China is compelled to upgrade its equipment by investing in advanced technologies.

Visitors at FoodPex 2015 will include food manufacturers, representatives from the catering and food service, food safety and food quality sectors as well as importers, exporters and distributors.

The SWOP trade show quartet is organized by Messe Düsseldorf and its subsidiary Messe Düsseldorf Shanghai in cooperation with their long-time partner Adsale Exhibition Services and the China Center for Food & Drug International Exchange (CCFDIE). SWOP offers a one-stop packaging and processing solution and interactive exchange platform for packaging and printing companies, end-product manufacturers and other buyers.
