Record success at Interpack for Spice Application Systems

stand-interpack-2014-webSpice Application Systems had its best-ever show at Interpack 2014 in Dusseldorf last month, generating a record number of enquiries and trials.

Promoting its latest products and techniques, the stand attracted interest from around the world, including Europe, Central Asia, North and South America, and the Middle East.

“It was an excellent show, the calibre of visitors was extremely high and the results were outstanding,” said Peter King, managing director. “Visitors were especially interested in our exclusive electrostatic testing facility at the University of Reading, England, and in the way electrostatics can achieve great results and save money through reduced powder wastage.

“It was also the first time we have had significantly increased interest in electrostatics from manufacturers in the UK, which is very encouraging. Traditionally, the UK market has been slow to respond to this technology and we hope this is the start of a new dawn for electrostatics in UK food manufacturing.”

King says the team fielded enquiries about using electrostatics to apply flavourings and coatings to a wide range of foodstuffs, including potato and pasta snacks, popcorn, nuts, biscuits, bakery products, sweets, meat and frozen vegetables.
