JBT’s tray sealing specialist Proseal is increasing its support for the important Italian market with the appointment of Giovanni-Paolo as Regional Sales Manager for the country.

Giovanni will be based at Proseal’s parent company JBT’s Center for Excellence in Parma. The facility includes JBT’s Technology Center for fruit and vegetable processing, protein, aseptic and HPP systems, which enables customers to assess a wide range of aseptic processing and packaging technologies and provides full testing facilities to trial solutions for their products, both remotely and in person.

As part of the Proseal customer offer, one of the company’s tray sealing machines has now been added to the test equipment at the center. This will allow customers to experience first-hand the effectiveness of Proseal’s tray sealing technology for the fast, efficient and hygienic sealing of a wide range of products from fresh berries and other produce, meat, poultry and fish, to sandwiches, snack foods, ready meals and fresh pasta.
