Help us celebrate our  30th Anniversary

Taking place over three days, from Tuesday 25 to Thursday 27 September, this year’s Processing and Packaging Machinery Trade Show is going to be unmissable.   

With over 350 specialist exhibitors, a keynote speaker programme and real-time technology demonstrations throughout, you’ll be able to discuss your needs with the experts.   

In addition to being Britain’s largest private sector employer (source: IGD), the Food Sector is a major contributor to the UK economy. The sector is growing, offering innovative approaches to food development and manufacturing. Spending on food continues to rise, with manufacturers focused on meeting the needs of our increasingly busy life styles and sophisticated tastes.

In light of the often complex series of steps involved in the manufacture, processing and packaging of food, this year’s PPMA Show will offer you valuable insight into the major trends and new technology impacting the industry. From productivity transformations to the latest discoveries in labelling and packaging, you’ll find ideas to grow your business and meet the people who can make it happen.

What’s Happening at the PPMA Show, 2018

  • At the 2018 show, you’ll be able to see and buy machinery to help you develop your business.  Live, real-time demonstrations of the latest production and manufacturing technology will enable decision-makers fully to assess the features and benefits of what they need to purchase.
