The Ultimate Destination for the Meat Processing and Packaging Industry

The Ultimate Destination for the Meat Processing and Packaging Industry

14 February 2023 : [Bangkok, Thailand] – With global meat prices rising more than 10% in 2022, reliable processing methods and quality assurance are becoming vital pieces of the puzzle when it comes to reducing costs from wastage and extracting maximum value from the food processing chain. With the exhibitor line-up for next month’s inaugural edition of Meat Pro Asia now confirmed, it’s clear that these considerations will be at the top of the agenda in Bangkok from 8 – 10 March. The focus will be on how to deliver meat from farm to table in a cost effective and scalable way, with more than 100 exhibitors from 20 countries and regions participating.

“It’s pleasing to see the exhibitor list take shape, and in particular the presence of suppliers with strong research and development backgrounds who are pushing the industry forward in areas such as food preservation and sample analysis; the building blocks of a safe and cost-effective food chain,” says Mr. Richard Li, Executive Director, Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd. “This has set the stage for a productive fair in March, with exhibitors delivering plenty of value for the local market.”


Highlights of Meat Pro Asia include:

  • 100 leading companies from the top level of the meat and food processing industry showcasing
    their innovation and technology.
     30+ intensive conferences covering a range of topics, including Future Food, Food Safety, Halal,
    Sustainability, and a panel discussion on the future of meat processing trends and opportunities.
  • A wide range of product highlights, including new product launches, demonstrations, and hands-on workshops.
  • A free Guided Tour service to help visitors explore the fair and meet potential partners.
  • A free shuttle service available for pre-booking in advance to make your visit to Meat Pro Asia 2023 even more convenient.

Sample analysis and preservation
While fuel inflation and the cost of grains fed to farmed animals are two of the main causes of increased meat prices, food wastage is also a consideration when it comes to keeping costs under control. Offering solutions to this issue, and in recognition that rising affluence is driving more meat consumption in South East Asia, many European and Chinese brands have identified Meat Pro Asia as an opportunity to showcase their sample analysis and preservation solutions. Some of the most notable include:

Bizerba, a German manufacturer of inspection systems for food production, will showcase their iMD pro metal detection system, complete with an integrated conveyor for reliable and flexible quality assurance.

Qingdao Main-Link Cleaning Equipment, specializing in hygiene and food safety, will exhibit their Centralised Foam Wash & Sanitizing System, designed for use in food processing and abattoirs. HiperScan will demonstrate their quick and reliable examination technology for all types of meat products.

Wuhan Grand Hoyo, a new manufacturer of food grade glycine, will showcase the preservation and seasoning properties of their product.

Munforks, a Swedish brand, will present their SPS10 Carcass Splitting Blade, 4TPI Meat Bandsaw Blade, and Toothed Bacon Slicer.

Rieckermann, a reliable service and technology provider, will showcase their customized, high-quality solutions for the whole value chain of industrial production.

Mettler Toledo will offer solutions for laboratory analytical instruments, inline analytical instruments, and digital balances.

Held together with VIV Asia – the largest fair in Asia for livestock production and animal husbandry, Meat Pro Asia focuses exclusively on solutions that deliver meat from farm to table. This includes slaughtering, the full processing chain, packaging, labelling, cold chain logistics, quality control, hygiene, IoT and automation, waste water treatment and more.
