FoodProductionDaily.com caught up with Multivac chief Hans-Joachim Boekstegers at the recent Interpack trade show to find out what makes the German-based company tick.

The CEO provided insight into trends driving development in Multivac – highlighting automation, clean design and food safety as three key areas.

Speaking from the Düsseldorf event last week, Boekstegers outlined how the company’s philosophy around innovation and paying the closest attention to customer demands were two of the secrets behind its ongoing growth.

While other packaging outfits had fought to maintain turnover during the worst global recession in half a century, Multivac had seen its revenue jump 25 per cent and actually increased its market share in some segments.

With innovative products such as integrated high pressure processing for modified atmosphere packaging creating serious interest, and an increasing emphasis on full line applications, along with steady growth in its market-leading traysealing portfolio, Boekstegers was able to declare quite simply that “We don’t fear anyone”.
