Propak Asia featured dedicated Confectionery Pavilion
At this year’s ProPak Asia trade show, the top specialists in the confectionery process and packaging supply sector came together in a joint Confectionery Pavilion.
Eight companies: Chocotech, Dumoulin, Euromec, Hänsel Processing, Sollich, Theegarten-Pactec, Winkler und Dünnebier Süßwarenmaschinen GmbH (WDS) and Wymbs Engineering – informed visitors about their product and service portfolios. This represented a unique opportunity for confectionery manufacturers to benefit from access to combined expertise throughout the entire processing and packaging process.
Each of the companies is a specialist in their own field of operation:
