Visitors can discover the latest new ingredients and super foods to make an impression on the industry as well as discovering how to improve traceability, consumer trust and transform productivity.

With more than 300 exhibitors expected at the 2016 show, the latest technologies and product launches from across the UK’s manufacturing industries will be on display. Returning for the 2016 show, exhibitors including Multivac UK, ULMA Packaging, Reiser UK and Handtmann will join a raft of new exhibitors to showcase the latest innovations.

We feel that the show will provide EFAFLEX with an excellent opportunity for us to demonstrate the quality and operational benefits of our products, while directly engaging with the individual needs of users within this key market. We’re excited to be a part of this exhibition and look forward to April 2016.”
