Utz will show innovative solutions for food processing during the Anuga FoodTec 2012 in Cologne

In Europe for over 50 years, the Utz Group offers containers, boxes, pallets, trays and technical parts produced with reusable plastic. The main focus of the company is customized logistical solutions for storage and transport requirements, particularly the development of carriers for automated applications and also for the whole modern supply chain. By exhibiting at the Anuga FoodTec this year, Utz will put in the spotlight selected developments for the meat industry, cargo carriers for dairy products, sweets and bread, examples from the beverage industry, and also innovative solutions that are tailored to different market segments.

The focus of visitor interest is likely to be the new E- performance container, developed in close cooperation with EDEKA (German Supermarket giant). These new white modern containers in the dimensions of 600 x 400 x 125mm (E1) and 600 x 400 x 200mm (E2) will replace the existing old red meat boxes in the European market over the next few years.
The new E-Performance meat container from Utz
Why the new development?! The E Performance container is different to his red brother, because the colour is white, symbolizing not only hygienic, but ensures also that only virgin food approved raw material was used for the production. This prevents misuse identified in the material selection. Moreover HDPE is the material in accordance with EU Council Regulation 10/2011, and of course is suitable for food and direct food contact.
Thanks to the extensive experience of the development engineers at Utz, the E Performance container is designed that it is also suitable for the
handling on highly automated conveyor systems in the food processing industry. To ensure the permanent identification of the container, there are four in-mould labels (IML) on each box. The four bar code labels are positioned before the actual production process and the injection of the hot plastic into the injection moulding tool. Thus, the labels are extremely durable because they are protected by a thin layer of plastic and also an integrated part of the container. This robustness compared to the old style adhesive paper labels has advantages when washing the container, as both paper and glue suffer from the variety of washes.
In addition, the container is clearly marked with the manufacturer’s code as well as one of GS1 assigned unique codes. The containers and the design are protected through trade mark rights.
The Utz stand during the Anuga FoodTec 2012 is in Hall 6.1 with the number E 061.
