Industry giants converge on NEC, Birmingham to showcase disruptive and cutting-edge technologies, set to transform the ‘smart factories’ of the future


Foodex 2018 will welcome more than 400 manufacturing suppliers including Busch UK, Bizerba (UK) Ltd, Addmaster UK, ULMA Packaging, Multivac, Handtmann, Reiser, Stephan UK as well as a raft of new exhibitors lined up to showcase their latest innovations.


Demonstrating how to streamline processes, minimise waste and boost profits in the bakery sector, Cybake – Britain’s number one bakery management software specialist – will introduce its new, cloud-based version of its bakery management system. Giving operators full control over all bakery operations, Cybake provides improved insight into the bottom-line, with modernised orders, invoicing, recipe management, stock control traceability and compliance.


Further demonstrating how to reduce costs and maximise efficiency, JBC Industrial Services Limited will showcase its HALO real time remote monitoring system. The boilerhouse monitoring system uses analogue, digital and mod bus outputs to provide a critical overview into asset performance. Helping to deliver cost savings through optimal performance, the HALO system also improves fault response times with instant alerts on failures, helping to determine both maintenance and investment strategies. The monitoring system, which enables effortless predictive maintenance, helps to prolong equipment life, minimise downtime and increase revenue for improved efficiency, reliability and availability.


As well as providing the opportunity for buyers to discover the latest technologies and connect with potential suppliers, Foodex will also play host to an extensive programme of interactive events, discussions and debates.


In the seminar theatre, visitors are invited to join the likes of the Campden BRI Group, Food Storage & Distribution Federation (FSDF), Fresh Produce Consortium and the British Standards Institution (BSI) who will take to the stage to discuss the latest sector-specific trends and topics impacting the bakery, beverage, dairy, fresh, ingredients, logistics, meat and seafood sectors.


Speaking about Foodex 2018, Event Director, Dan Dixon, said: “The manufacturing industry is on the edge of a potential precipice, with the circular economy and the growing pressure to improve sustainability set to dramatically transform the industry. It is a critical time for manufacturing professionals to explore the latest trends and technologies to enhance their business operations.”
