Global buyers bet on Italian technology in IPACK-IMA

Algeria, Saudi Arabia, Brazil, China, India, Russia and the USA: these are just some of the countries of origin of global buyers participating in IPACK-IMA 2012 at fieramilano, the global exhibition dedicated to packaging, material handling and machinery for the food industry. All buyers were carefully selected from33 countries worldwide and invited by Ipack-Ima in partnership with Anima and Assofoodtec.

This is a clear signal of the excellent quality levels reached by Italian manufacturers of the industry and proves that it is still possible to grow despite a period of severe crisis, provided all players have the courage and the capability to invest in innovation with the aim of prospering on global markets.

“This is my first time at IPACK-IMA”, comments Othamane Mandrè, general manager of Minoterie Othmane and a prominent businessman in Morocco’s milling industry. “My company intends to invest €4 million to innovate processes and increase quality. To this end, this exhibition is a great opportunity to learn about market news and establish contacts with manufacturers”.

Murat Bozkurt, chairman of the association of Turkish pasta producers, is a regular IPACK-IMA goer and participated in every edition since 2000. “In spite of the current international crisis this industry has not stopped growing”, he says. “However, all players are fully aware that in order to sustain this success we must strive to keep constantly updated: this is why all Turkish producers are here in Milan.

”An example of this remarkable participation is Bayram Ozturk, general manager of Dizayn, an Istanbul company dealing in food processing machinery. “I have been working with an Italian company for a few years now and IPACK-IMA is a key chance to get an overview of what’s new on the market and meet new partners to the end of developing new business together.”

Poland national Piotr Kapera is a technical director at Tymbark, a company of the Maspex food group. “When it comes to the ability to innovate, Italians are second to none”, he says. “While touring the exhibition halls I found many interesting ideas to develop my business. I definitely intend to strengthen my acquaintance with the Italian producers I met at IPACK-IMA.”

M. Hadi is an Iran national who works for Allas Diary, a company producing over 100 tons of milk per day. “Our objective is to manufacture our own packages to shorten the production chain”, he explains. “For this reason I’m looking for a company that can supply this kind of technology, which does not exist in Iran, here at IPACK-IMA.” Hadi has recently been involved in a series of business meetings in Germany. “I was very pleased with the great professionalism I found in both countries, though it is here at IPACK-IMA that I found what I was looking for. My only regret is that many of my countrymen were unable to attend the show due to bureaucratic delays in issuing visas”.
