Anuga FoodTec 2015: Pöppelmann FAMAC® achieves another attendance record.

At the trade fair for filling technology, Pöppelmann FAMAC® convinces visitors with its innovative folding cutlery “foon” and with practical additions to its standard programme.

The international food and beverage industry met once again at this year's edition of the leading global trade fair, considered to be the industry's most important stimulus. Approximately 43,000 visitors from 130 countries learned about the latest developments and trends. At the Pöppelmann FAMAC® booth, representatives welcomed about 50% more contacts compared to the last Anuga FoodTec in 2012. “We had many good conversations with key decision makers from the purchasing, development and technology fields,” says Sales Manager Engelbert Rechtien with satisfaction. “We were also able to convince many owners of our innovativeness and product diversity.”

Once again the highlight of the fair: our excellent folding cutlery “foon”.

After its premiere at the Interpack 2014 and after having been awarded the German Packaging Award, also the expert audience in Cologne was enthustiastic about the folding cutlery and it innovative design. The foldable foon fits into any standard  round cap with a 95 mm diameter. Simply by pressing the cutlery together, it extends to a length of 125 mm. This makes the foon extremely rigid and long enough to reach the bottom of the container without effort and without getting hands dirty. This intuitive operating principle can also be easily transferred onto other shapes such as ice cream spoons, knives or dessert forks. The spoon and fork variations are already available in the Pöppelmann FAMAC® standard programme.

Pöppelmann FAMAC® extends its standard packaging programme.

Pöppelmann FAMAC® plastic packaging stand for intuitive design, custom high quality appearance and outstanding machine-friendliness. As part of a continuous improvement and extension of the standard programme, our packaging professionals have presented several innovations at the Anuga FoodTec 2015.

Brand new product: our deep-drawn rectangular containers. From now on, our customers can choose between seven different sizes with volumes of 150 ml to 490 ml. The special feature of the Pöppelmann FAMAC® series is the by 30% to 40% increased crush resistance. This makes our containers much more stable than comparable products from other manufacturers.

Moreover, with the addition of the new 500 ml size, the round container with clamping lid series is now available in six versions from 490 ml to 1,150 ml. Both the rectangular containers for E2 boxes and the round bucket series have been extended by a 600 ml version.
