JBT Corporation brought renewed energy and focus to its presence at this year’s Foodpro trade exhibition, emphasising the significant strides forward that the company has been making in Australia’s multi-billion food and beverage processing industry.

A triennial event, Foodpro 2017, which took place from 16-19 July in Sydney, is dedicated to Australia’s food processing sector, the country’s largest manufacturing industry, which employs some 300,000 people and has a turnover in excess of A$120 billion.

Patrick Tan, JBT’s Regional Strategy and Market Communications Director, Asia Pacific, says JBT brought a renewed energy and enthusiasm for Australia’s food processing industry, highlighting many of the innovative solutions that JBT has available for the sector.

“Participation at this exhibition showed the energy and enthusiasm of JBT focusing in the food and beverage processing industries in Australia,” he said.

“With this renewed focus on the Australia food and beverage industries, JBT Australia is now making headways into the key industries with major customers, such as Inghams, Coles, Comgroup, Simplot, Jewel Fine Foods, Top Hats Baiada, Fonterra, Beak and Johnson on the protein side, and with Groves, Heinz, Harvey Fresh, Nippy Fruits and Kagome on the liquid foods side.”
