Process Expo 2015 showcases real world solutions, cutting-edge education

Process Expo, co-located with the International Dairy Show and InterBev Process, is North America’s largest trade show fully focused on food and beverage processing and packaging.  This premiere event will be held September 15-18, 2015, McCormick Place, Chicago, Illinois.  
The three co-located shows will bring together over 1,000 exhibiting companies and 21,000 industry professionals who come in search of the latest processing and packaging innovations for the ever-changing food, dairy and beverage industries. Attendees will have unlimited access to the show floors and educational programs of all three shows. 
At Process Expo you’ll find:
• North America’s largest collection of equipment manufacturers focused on food and beverage processing
• New equipment and the latest technology in processing and packaging
• Food safety experts to assist with any challenge
The show brings together exhibitors that provide processing and packaging solutions throughout the entire cross-section of the food and beverage industry including meat, seafood, poultry, dairy, bakery, prepared foods, beverage, and confectionery. Food and beverage professionals come to Process Expo because they know they’ll find new technologies from other segments they can apply in theirs for the first time, giving them a competitive advantage in their business.

Process Expo University is an integral component of the trade show event, addressing critical topics of importance to food processors and beverage manufacturers. These sessions feature academics from some of the top universities in North America and run throughout the four-day trade show.  Spanish-language sessions will be offered as well. All sessions conveniently take place on the show floor and are free to registered attendees. 
These speakers will address critical topics in the food and beverage industry and will cover all major industry segments.  The following abstracts are examples of the cutting-edge presentations available to Process Expo attendees.

Advancements in Aseptic Processing and Packaging
Aseptic processing is a thermal processing method that allows food products to be commercially sterilized separately from the food packaging material.  The commercial aseptic sterilization process takes place in a continuous closed system, then the product is inserted in the package under sterile conditions.  This method of food preservation has allowed the food industry to utilize a wide variety of packaging materials and package sizes.

Food Allergen Control Strategies
Management of food allergens in the production facility is an important food safety consideration that the food industry has devoted considerable resources to over the past 15-20 years to ensure that undeclared allergens are not inadvertently introduced into the finished food product.  A validated cleaning and sanitation program is one of the key steps in an allergen control program that can be used to effectively reduce cross-contact of food allergens on shared processing equipment.

Novel Processing Technologies for Enhancing Food Safety 
Consumers are favoring minimally processed foods with premium quality and without compromise in food safety. A number of emerging food processing technologies have the potential of minimizing the adverse quality changes of traditional thermal treatments, while ensuring the food safety and nutritional and sensory qualities of foods. These emerging food processing technologies include high pressure processing (HPP), pulsed light, ultraviolet light, cold plasma, ultrasound, microwave and ohmic heating.
