F O O D T E C H PA C K T E C H MATERIALS HANDLING AND LOGISTIC SHOW TO RUN ALONGSIDE FOODTECH PACKTECH Event organiser XPO Exhibitions has already confirmed that more than 220 exhibiting companies across both shows will attract thousands of industry attendees across the three days, which offer a unique industry opportunity to view latest products and cutting edge technologies across food and beverage manufacturing, food and industrial packaging as well as materials handling and logistics solutions. This year’s Materials Handling and Logistics Show already has 50 exhibiting companies - a number that’s well up on the previous event in 2013 – with strong interest from forklift providers right through to 3PL providers. “MHL is under new management and back 24 SEPTEMBER 2016 alongside FTPT where it all began more than 10 years ago,” event director Tony Waite says. “Food specific materials handling and logistics solutions have always been popular exhibitor features within FTPT, so the formal alignment of MHL is simply helping the combined show grow. “The materials handling and logistics side of things completes our ‘New Zealand pasture (or sea) to plate’ capability story which is so important to realise our export market potential. “Now we’ve got MHL onboard, we’ll also be cross-referencing our database of close to 300,000 industry professionals registered for other successful trade shows we run - to send out relevant invites to a wide variety of industry interested in materials handling and logistics solutions. Examples will include general engineering and manufacturing, homewares importers, retail and even the construction industry – anyone storing, moving or distributing goods in New Zealand or internationally.” Foodtech Packtech looks likely to smash records this year, helped along by long-time supporters and show partners including the NZ Institute of Food Science & Technology, the New Zealand Food Innovation Network, Massey University and its successful NZ Food Awards. “The food manufacturing industry as a whole is continuing to enjoy high growth rates – hence a growing need for our event to empower food manufacturers to network, learn, research and procure the latest food technology solutions,” Waite says. A combined audience across FTPT & MHL Expo of 4,000+ industry professionals and 220+ exhibitors will showcase the very latest innovations and technologies, three days of industry-led seminars, special features, show specials, visitor prizes including the chance to win a brand new Ford and exclusive VIP networking events.

The 5S range is a management system to ensure efficiency, consistency and safety in fast paced manufacturing facilities. Originally derived from Japanese ‘six sigma’ practices, each ‘S’ in the 5S programme has an important meaning and objective: Sort: Clearing up your workplace, keeping only what you need. Set in Order: Organise, identify and arrange everything in your workplace. Shine: Regularly clean and maintain your equipment and work environment. Standardise: Make sure everyone is doing the same thing in the same way. Sustain: Ensure adherence to the system to maintain a safe and efficient workplace. Wells signage and storage systems make it easy to implement 5S in your work place. Its team has a great deal of experience helping to implement best practice when it comes to colourcoding and Vikan cleaning equipment. Wells has developed a large library of images and can custom-configure a heavy duty shadow board to its client’s exact needs, including wording, colours, products and any other important instructional notes. The process is simple and begins with an obligation free site hygiene 5S survey.
