Traditional manufacturing can no longer cope with the current dynamic global market, however it can be improved through the adoption of automation and machinery to increase operation capacity and efficiency and support human tasks. Visitors will discover various

machines with advanced functions to produce several processed food and drink products with more precision, accuracy, and capacity without compromising quality and safety. Technological solutions showcased at ProPak can be part of every step across the food supply chain including processing, packing, packaging, labeling, and warehousing.

The event’s technologies and innovations are there to enable manufacturers to produce products that meet current trends. Visitors can see plastic packaging and sustainable solutions to meet the demand for environmentally friendly products, as well as machines designed to be user-friendly and easy to clean in order to ensure efficient operation and hygienic conditions. Sensors are being adopted in various systems to collect processing parameters and deliver manufacturers real-time operating information to increase flexibility and convenience for operators. Visitors will also see how digital technology plays a role in processing and how it enables manufacturers to unlock potential in the production of reliable products.

“Food and Beverage is one of the largest industries in Myanmar and there is still room to grow tosupply Myanmar consumers and serve regional markets. In order to move forward and seize this growing market, there are key factors that manufacturers need to adopt to enhance their capacity and competitiveness amongst fierce competition. Of course, you can find these keys to success at ProPak Myanmar 2019 where the latest technology and innovation in food, drink and manufacturing industries will be showcased. The event is also the best platform for discovering new trends and networking with industry professionals. I would like to see more of Myanmar’s manufacturers supply products with global standards and higher value to export to other countries.
