Compact, contained and technologically innovative are the three key characteristics being showcased at Gulfood Manufacturing, where the first “Factory in a Box” was unveiled on the opening day. Presented by United Food Technology (UFT), a specialist food technology and engineering company with offices in Germany and the UAE, the company believes that this is how the food factory of the future will look and function. Innovations in space utilization, processing yields, hygiene controls and waste management all contribute to a faster, more efficient, cleaner and more eco-friendly factory.
According to Gerhard Vogt, Managing Director of UFT, “By applying the latest food factory technology, UFT can now deliver and commission a new food factory within 6 – 8 months instead of the standard 18 months to two years.”
The largest and most influential trade exhibition for the food manufacturing, processing and packaging sectors in the Middle East, Africa and South East Asia regions, Gulfood Manufacturing 2015 runs until 29 October at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC).
Gulfood Manufacturing is open between 10am-6pm from 27 – 28 October and 10am-5pm on 29 October 2015 at DWTC. Visitor attendance is free of charge.
