As the final preparations for this year’s interpack show in Dusseldorf, Germany come to a close, the excitement begins to mount for attendees and exhibitors. Show organizers expect more than 2,700 exhibitors from approximately 60 countries in all 19 halls of the Düsseldorf fairgrounds. From May 8 – 14, interpack will present packaging and processing solutions for confectionery, snack and bakery manufacturers.

As the largest show for confectionery processing and packaging companies, interpack promises to similarly address the issues inherent in the confectionery industry, particularly as they apply to automation, technology, production innovation, sustainability, energy costs, safety, sanitation and manufacturing flexibility.

As always, halls 1 through 4 will be specifically devoted to the confectionery segment. Naturally, there will also be companies that work with confectionery manufacturers located throughout halls 5 through 19.

This month’s On-Floor Preferred Suppliers Exhibit Guide provides readers with a preview of select companies that have focused on helping manufacturers compete in a more complex and connected global confectionery industry.
