This presents an array of opportunities for brand owners to capitalise on the growing demand for savoury snacks.
However, the challenge for producers lies in the ability to switch between multiple product types, while keeping up production quotas, says Teri Johnson, divisional sales manager, tna North America.
tna will showcase its latest addition to the tna robag 3 packaging portfolio, the tna robag 3e range at this year’s SNAXPO (Charlotte, North Carolina, March 22-24).
Visitors are also invited to experience live demonstrations of the tna intelli-flav 5.1 on-machine seasoning system, the tna roflo 3 horizontal motion and tna roflo 3 vibratory motion conveyors for potato chips and pellets, and french fries.
“The food packaging industry is evolving at a rapid pace, with manufacturers finding themselves under ever-increasing pressure to improve the operational efficiency of their packaging processes,” said Steven Wolfe, GM, tna North America.
Digital control systems
“In an industry where the real and virtual worlds are increasingly converging, digital control systems must become more sophisticated to deliver the levels of automation and performance expected, from a single piece of equipment to entire production lines.”
He added the tna rolfo series incorporates ‘switcheroo’ and erector technologies to handle multiple products on a single line.
