Multivac to host virtual and in-person summit

Multivac to host virtual and in-person summit

Multivac Summti 2021 will be held virtually on 12 April and in corona-compliant face-to-face events on 26 April; the event will focus on all aspects of food processing and packaging.

On the agenda are two groups of topics: ‘Expertise in lines and automation in the protein sector’ and ‘Packaging solutions for fresh produce and convenience products.’ All interested customers and representatives from the food industry will initially be able to learn virtually on 12 April, and in corona-compliant face-to-face events on 26  April.  

The technical presentations and individual discussions with experts, as well as the practical live demonstrations, will initally take place as virtual live sessions. The face-to-face events will be held in the new Application Center or the Training & Innovation Center at the group's headquarters in Wolfertschwenden. From May onwards, the contents of these sessions will also be available on the Multivac City platform. 

The focus of this event is primarily on the efficient processing and packaging of proteins. Multivac will be using the example of a fully automatic line for the slicing and packaging of processed cheese to demonstrate its automation, and this complete line will be shown in live operation. The high-output S 1600 slicer is one of the components of the line. 

Multivac will also be providing information about products for reliable labelling and marking, as well as label and print inspection of the packs. The focus will be on cross web labelling and direct web print-ing. 

The second topic of focus is the packaging of fruit, vegetables and convenience products. How can the shelf life of delicate products be extended? How can the consumption of packaging material be reduced? And how can pots and cylindrical or shaped bottles be labelled flexibly and efficiently? These and other questions will be answered in presentations and live demonstrations in the Training & Innovation Center.

One topic with special relevance for virtually all companies is digitalization. The contributors will use their presentations to explain why digital products are valuable. According to the company, the focus will be directed not only on current developments in the market, but also on the range of digital products from Multivac. The program will be rounded off with information about after-sales support, as well as with "Meet the experts" discussions, which offer customers the opportunity to discuss their individual questions with the specialists from the Innovation Center.
