Spice Application Systems scored its highest number of enquiries ever from the Snackex show, according to managing director Peter King.
And, within a week of the show finishing, the first orders had already been received from a new client in Russia.
“We were absolutely delighted, both with the number of visitors and also the high calibre of attendees,” said King.
“Enquiries were of an extremely high quality and, more than anything else, manufacturers wanted to find out more about how electrostatics can save them money through reduced wastage. It’s something which is becoming ever more important and the results speak for themselves when it comes to savings on the bottom line.
“We were also able to talk about our latest developments, such as our trials facility in Belgium, which gives manufacturers the chance to test out new flavours and coatings in total confidence, and overall the response was fantastic.”
Business has been booming recently for Spice Application Systems, which exports its equipment worldwide. The explosion of the popped chips market has been particularly successful for electrostatics as manufacturers tap into demand for a healthier snack with less oil and fat but plenty of flavouring.
