uadrant Engineering Plastic Products (EPP) has updated its range of Food Grade Plastics in line with the new European Union Regulation (EU) 10/2011. The move makes Quadrant EPP the first and only engineering plastics’ manufacturer to offer such a broad and fully-tested range of thermoplastic stock shapes complying with the regulation. The portfolio of certified materials, covering PE through to PEEK, gives food producers the assurance of fulfilling the highest safety and quality levels for their food and beverage production systems. New Regulation (EU) 10/2011 is a further development of Directive 2002/72/EC for plastics materials in contact with food, and specifies much stricter test conditions for migration. Within the EU, compliance is required for all food contact materials. All Quadrant EPP Food Grade semifinished stock shapes and customized finished parts are processed and handled according to the new regulation and to the consistent quality control guidelines of Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP). Quadrant EPP accompanies each delivery with complete documentation, from choice of raw material to finished parts. This allows

full traceability and also supports customers in reducing their own in-house product testing time and costs. Customers receive a Declaration of compliance with the order (DCO) according to EN 10204-2.1 that ensures the uninterrupted traceability of the plastic product from the stock shape back to the raw material used by batch. Each production step is tested and documented by Quadrant EPP. Quadrant is also ahead of the market in introducing a Declaration of Compliance (DoC) for every delivery – a documentation requirement valid as of 2016 – that includes the complete test conditions together with the migration values of the materials. Tests to determine the migration values of Quadrant EPP’s food contact polymer materials were conducted on the thermoplastic stock shapes by independent external laboratory Intertek. These tests were performed according to regulation (EU) 10/2011. The portfolio of over 30 products was tested per Overall Migration Limit (OML) and Specific Migration Limit (SML) to measure the material inertness and provide a toxicological evaluation of individual substances. By including the pre-tested results with the DoC, customers can more easily calculate migration values for

As part of its complete Food Grade Program, customers can benefit from Quadrant’s international partner network to select the right material for their application. The material selection and application advice considers the food type in contact with the plastic parts, and temperature and food contact time. “Quadrant is constantly developing innovative production and application solutions to help customers improve their production performance,” comments Ulf Barth, Market Segment Manager Food Processing Industry, Quadrant EPP Europe. “The Quadrant Food Grade Program offers the food market the widest selection of engineering plastic stock shapes and design possibilities. Materials certified to the highest safety level, migration calculation support, and application selection recommendations, assist our customers in reaching the best possible cost-performance ratio for their individual system.”

Sustainability is demonstrated in practice at BUERGO.FOL


UERGO.FOL, the renowned manufacturer of flexible films, rigid films, reclosable films, skin films, and shrink films for the food industry and for numerous technical applications, is increasingly focusing on sustainable packaging systems. The film manufacturer therefore not only pledges to realize real and verifiable protection of the environment, but also translates this concept into action. Saving resources and recycling while maintaining its renowned product quality are the goals declared by the company headquartered in Siegenburg, Germany, in the lower Bavarian district of Kelheim.

1. Are the current bioplastics really sustainable? Everyone uses the term „sustainable“ today, but due the extremely widespread use of this term, especially in the packaging industry, very few people actually know what is meant by this term. Wikipedia says the following: „Sustainability is the capacity to endure. For humans, sustainability is the long-term maintenance of responsibility, which has environmental, economic, and social dimensions, and encompasses the concept of stewardship, the responsible management of resource use. In ecology, sustainability describes how biological systems remain diverse and productive over time, a necessary precondition for human well-being. Longlived and healthy wetlands and forests are examples of sustainable biological systems.“ [1]. All too quickly now - under the guise of „sustainability“ – companies are bridging the gap to the use of renewable raw materials in the production of films, the manufacture of biologically degradable films, and to the natural cycle by subsequent composting of the films or packaging. It is a very

BUERGOFOL FP 2/13.indd 3

good and well-rounded concept that will surely forge its own path in the future. However, in the year 2013 this concept will not yet become complete because when you take a critical look behind the green curtain, you will see numerous corners and edges. For example, the raw material polylactic acid (PLA) is a renewable resource, but it is unfortunately manufactured today in the USA based on genetically modified corn. It is unthinkable to use this PLA in films and packaging in many European countries, and especially in Switzerland. The exact same criticism applies to the heavily advertised compostability of packaging made using biomaterials, which can even be certified according to DIN EN 13432 [2]. Only a few packages and bags land in (industrial) compost – just like before, they continue to be fed to incinerators [3]. Experts in the field of biopolymers also expressly recommend their incineration [4]. Furthermore, there is not any method available for recycling biomaterials. In contrast: If large amounts of PLA were to be sent to the recycling plant, then the raw materials would contaminate the waste stream and make other recycled plastics unmar-

ketable. Based on a report from the experts at Euwid, the Petcore organization views the recycling of PET bottles to be at risk. Even a small market share of PLA could lead to a serious disruption of the infrastructure for recycling PET bottles in Europe.“ [5]. Another setback in relation to the use of biopolymers for packaging arose at the beginning of 2013: Until the end of the year 2012 biodegradable packagings made from renewable raw materials were exempted from the DSD fees. This “promotion” ends from the beginning of the year 2013 [6]. As the European Bioplastics has announced in June 2012, further amendments of the German Biowaste Ordinance lead to restrictions, that not all “biopackaging” may be disposed of in the brown bin [7]. The entire system of biopolymers based on renewable materials is evidently still in its infancy. There are only a few suppliers, and they often have a monopoly in the market. Even in terms of the properties of the materials, films made of biopolymers cannot measure up yet to established products manufactured on a petrochemical basis because in many cases they are still too

15/04/13 12.45


brittle, sensitive to water, temperaturesensitive (below 60°C for PLA based biopolymers), poor-sealing (for cellulose-based), difficult to process, and do not function as a barrier. BUERGO.FOL Managing Director Gregor Schleicher does not see the end of the possibilities for biopolymers by a long shot yet. Without the support of petroleum-based polymers, it is impossible to achieve the properties in films and packaging that customers are accustomed to. In addition, Schleicher also expressed moral considerations regarding the manufacturing of plastics using food intended for humans and livestock. In summary, it can be said that this still does not justify the high price for films made of biomaterials. Very few consumers are willing to pay for them because they are not convinced yet of the advantages of packaging made of biomaterials and are even confused and insecure about their use due to the continuous flood of new organic logos and controversial public discussions. It may take many years before bioplastics, praised as

being renewable and sustainable, and the products produced using them become a serious alternative to petroleum-based plastics. BUERGO.FOL is monitoring these developments very closely, but only after the concept of renewable resources is sensible and consistent in all aspects will consumers be willing to accept them.

2. Real Sustainability In the meantime, BUERGO.FOL is following and realizing a different path to more sustainable products. As a pioneer in Germany, the company has been offering foamed APET films in thicknesses ranging from 300 to 800 μ under the new brand name „BUERGO.PET expanded“ for some time now. These films are produced on the ultramodern facilities available at the site in Ingolstadt, Germany. The weight of the foamed film is approximately 30% lower in comparison to that of conventional APET films. This results in significant material savings, and therefore to a more sustainable use of natural resources. BUERGO.PET expanded has

a very high mechanical strength and is perfectly suited for use as a deep draw film on all common thermoforming and packaging machines, even on older models. This means processors of the film and packagers using the film can still use their existing machines without having to retrofit them, and they can even continue working with their standard machine settings. The thermal formability is also much better in comparison to non-foamed films as well. For example, extremely deep recesses can be formed without requiring the use of a stamp. The structures applied to the thermoforming mold are formed precisely and with detailed contours on the foamed film. Furthermore, the foamed APET film can be cut perfectly – sharp edges and sharp corners are a thing of the past now. At the same time, wear on the cutting knifes is minimized. The foaming effect also provides other advantages in addition to the advantage of a reduction in weight: due to the insulating effect, the keeping quality of the packaged product improves as well. Visually, the foam structure is very appealing and attractive, and the film and packaging feel soft and smooth in your hand while still providing a good grip. This provides an additional incentive to the consumers at the point of sale to purchase the product. In addition, BUERGO.PET expanded is also available in various colours, and the film can be printed with excellent results, which means it is possible to realize new and individual packaging ideas as eye-catchers on the shelves and ideal product presentations. The innovative foam films based on polyester are therefore superbly suited for the manufacture of trays, tablets, pans, plates, dishes, and cups for the food area as well as for the non-food area. Their use for packaging foods such as meats and sausages, cheese, snack items, fish and seafood, poultry, baked goods and ready-made meals on the one hand, and for consumer and industrial goods such as hygiene products, household goods, office sup-

15/04/13 12.45


plies, electronics on the other hand, must be particularly emphasized. The combination of stackability and slippage resistance in the packaging is guaranteed.

Composite Films Just like before, the new foamed APET films can also be bonded to a laminate with barrier films from the BUERGO. FOL company in an additional refinement step. The bond is strong and permanent. Delamination does not occur in top films or in bottom films. By selecting suitable laminating films, it is possible to vary the barrier properties for oxygen, carbon dioxide, and water vapour as well the opening characteristics of the packaging. The spectrum ranges from tight sealed packaging to packaging that is especially easy to open, i.e. easy to peel. As a whole, this allows the realization of customized packaging, and the film specialists from Bavaria are ready to meet the demands and requirements of manufacturers, retailers, and consumers.

4. Savings Sustainable development will be part of the future of the packaging market. In times of heavy pricing pressure, the economical use of resources will become more important than ever. The following table shows the potential savings in packaging by comparing the foamed APET film BUERGO.PET expanded with the non-foamed BUERGO. PET film. The table shows how much packaging material weight can be saved when using the foamed film. In addition to the cost savings in material and the lower transportation costs Typical bottom film

resulting from the lower packaging weight, it is also necessary to consider the not-so-insignificant savings in DSD (dual refuse system) fees for the „Green Point“ system. Particularly noteworthy in this context is the fact that the foamed APET sheet BUERGO.PET expanded is mainly produced with recycled materials. This results in a very low value for the carbon footprint (kg of CO2 eq. / kg polymer) in a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and a considerable saving of energy.

5. Summary and Outlook The new, verifiably sustainable concept from BUERGO.FOL, who has already realized the production and sales of foamed APET films in the BUERGO. PET expanded product class, also offers a whole range of advantages on the product side: • Excellent processing characteristics on existing machines • Appealing look and feel • Outstanding mechanical properties In comparison to other plastics, Gregor Schleicher, Managing Director of the BUERGO.FOL GmbH, stated the fol-

lowing: „In comparison to polypropylene PP, the foamed APET film stands out due to is significantly better processing properties, higher plant effectiveness, and lower energy consumption. Compared to polystyrene PS, BUERGO. PET expanded has significantly better mechanical properties with comparable recyclability.“ One of the reasons why the marketing of foamed APET film is now being advanced is the fact that weight savings of up to 30% are possible in packaging and that the packaging material show a very good LCA-value. This responsible handling of resources is environmentally friendly since it reduces the overall energy consumption and CO2 emissions. This and other sustainable concepts will be more intensely pursued in the future at BUERGO. FOL because this company is aware of responsibility for the environment and for the living conditions of future generations.

The food industry focuses on clean energy. Two excellent examples promoted by Energy Resources: Cbm Fileni and Vis Industrie Alimentari


argeting international development trends, Energy Resources’ mission desires to translate the vision into a much more solid approach by designing technologies, systems and products that really mean zero impact for each human activity, from producing energy from renewable and inexhaustible sources to the use of energy to supply buildings and sustainable mobility systems. With more than 110 megawatts of total power installed in plants exploiting renewable energies, Energy Resources is one of the leaders in the Italian renewable energy market. In six years the company has reached a turnover of more than ₏ 350 million. To date more than 600 among the most important Italian companies have chosen ER to create photovoltaic and geothermal plants, Green Buildings and for renovating the energy systems as well as integrated systems for sustainable mobility. Energy Resources is also a green energy producer with 8.5 megawatts of owned photovoltaic plants which open the Italian energy market to foreign investors. Food is converting to renewables. A host of companies in the industry are renovating the energy systems in their facilities. There are two aims: restore old plants, often featuring asbestos roofs which require reclamation, and cut heating and electricity consumption thus reducing costs for the companies. Renewable energy is the answer to


these pressing needs. Vis Industrie Alimentari and Cbm Fileni are two good examples created by Energy Resources in Italy. With Ministerial Decree of 19 February 2007, Italian companies and private individuals were given the chance to make a real contribution to protecting the environment, by installing solar panels on roofs and on the ground. There are not only financial savings involved. Many people and companies jumped at the chance, also considering that photovoltaic panels insulate roofs better, with no risk to their waterproofing. Renewable energy is an excellent investment in terms of communication and green marketing: today’s consumers are more and more

26/02/13 15.20


interested in a company’s impact on the environment in addition to the sustainability of its production chain. This value directly reflects on the end product, increasing the perception of quality and authenticity. «Every plant installed for our customers – explains the chairman of Energy Resources, Enrico Cappanera - is like a tailor-made suit, designed and created on the basis of the real needs and potential of the structures we work on. We are talking about efficient, effective and safe investments».

C.B.M. FILENI This well-known chicken farm conceived two separate projects for energy development at the chicken houses and warehouses located in San Marcello (An), by installing a 200kw photovoltaic system with the Net metering formula (90% guaranteed coverage of the company’s electricity require-

ment), supported by another 1Mw system to complete the transfer of energy produced to the network. The panels almost cover the entire surface of the roofs. The opportunity was seized to replace the now obsolete roof with 8-centimetre “sandwich” insulation panels that provide significant thermal/acoustic insulation as well as an additional overall energy saving of more than 10%. Almost two years from commissioning the panels, the production of “green” energy has exceeded 1,542,888.608 kWh, equalling 819,274.04 kg of CO2 not released into the atmosphere, and 336,261.90 litres of petrol not used: the equivalent of 106,000 new trees.

VIS INDUSTRIE ALIMENTARI In 2011 this leading company specialised in the production and wholesale of frozen food decided to transform the roof of the facility in Noale (VE)

into a true solar-power electricity production plant while reclaiming the old asbestos covering. Energy Resources proposed the most competitive bid in technical and financial terms. This allowed Vis Industrie Alimentari to benefit from the incentives to the production of green energy in addition to a further bonus for reclaiming the asbestos. The 292.5 kWp photovoltaic system guaranteed a new source of revenue by producing considerable savings by slashing electricity consumption. Almost two years from commissioning the panels, the production of “green” energy has reached 400,000 kWh, equalling 200,000 kg of CO2 not released into the atmosphere, and a saving of around € 90,000 per annum.

ereits auf die Dynamiken der internationalen Entwicklung ausgelegt, möchte die Mission von Energy Resources die Vision in einen sehr viel konkreteren Ansatz übersetzen, und dabei Technologien, Systeme und Produkte entwickeln, die in der Lage sind, eine wirkliche Null-Auswirkung für jede menschliche Tätigkeit zu erzielen, von der Stromerzeugung aus erneuerbaren und unerschöpflichen Quellen, bis hin zur Nutzung desselben für die Energieversorgung von Gebäuden und nachhaltigen Mobilitätssystemen. Mit über 100 Megawatt installierter Gesamtleistung in Anlagen zur Nutzung erneuerbarer Energien ist


Energy Resources einer der TopLeader auf dem italienischen Markt der erneuerbaren Energien. In sechs Jahren hat das Unternehmen einen Umsatz von über 350 Millionen Euro erwirtschaftet. Bis heute haben sich über 600 der bedeutendsten Unternehmen des Made in Italy zur Verwirklichung von photovoltaischen und geothermischen Anlagen, Green Building und energetischen Requalifizierungen, nebst integrierten Systemen für die nachhaltige Mobilität, für ER entschieden. Energy Resources ist auch Erzeuger von grünem Strom durch 8,5 Megawatt eigene Photovoltaikanlagen, die den italienischen Strommarkt für ausländische Investoren öffnen.

Die Lebensmittelindustrie sattelt auf erneuerbare Energien um. Zahlreiche Unternehmen der Branche setzen auf die energetische Requalifizierung ihrer Strukturen. Dabei wird ein zweifaches Ziel verfolgt: Die Sanierung der alten Werke, die sich oftmals noch durch Asbestabdeckungen auszeichnen, die saniert werden müssen und die drastische Reduzierung des Heizungs- und Stromverbrauchs zur Senkung der Betriebskosten. Die Antwort auf diese dringenden Bedürfnisse kann nur von den erneuerbaren Energien kommen. Es gibt zwei virtuose Beispiele, die Energy Resources in Italien verwirklicht hat: Vis Industrie Alimentari und Cbm Fileni. Durch das Ministerialdekret vom 19. Februar 2007 hat sich die Möglichkeit für die italienischen Unternehmen, aber auch für Privatpersonen eröffnet, durch die Installation von Photovoltaikpaneelen sowohl auf Dächern, als auch auf dem Boden, einen aktiven Beitrag für den Umweltschutz zu leisten. Mit Blick auf die Einsparung, und zwar nicht nur aus wirtschaftlicher Sicht. Und sehr viele haben die Gelegenheit beim Schopf gepackt, auch in Anbetracht der Tatsache, dass die Photovoltaik für eine bessere Isolierung des Daches sorgt, ohne Gefahren für die Abdichtungseigenschaften der Dachböden. Die erneuerbaren Energien stellen im Übrigen eine ausgezeichnete Investition in Bezug auf Kommunikation und Green Marketing dar: Der moderne Verbraucher wird immer aufmerksamer und achtet neben der Nachhaltigkeit der Produktkette auch auf die Umweltauswirkungen des Unternehmens, einen Wert, der sich direkt im Endprodukt widerspiegelt, und die Wahrnehmung von Qualität und Ursprünglichkeit steigert. «Jede für unsere Kunden installierte Anlage - erklärt der Präsident von Energy Resources, Enrico Cappanera - ist wie ein Maßanzug, geplant und gebaut auf Grundlage der tatsächlichen Bedürfnisse und Potenziale der Strukturen, für die wir


arbeiten. Wir sprechen hier von effizienten, effektiven und sicheren Investitionen».

Erdöl überschritten: Das entspricht 106 Tausend neuen Bäumen.


Das bedeutende, auf die Herstellung und den Großhandel von Tiefkühlwaren spezialisierte Unternehmen hat 2011 beschlossen, das Dach des Werks in Noale (VE) in ein wahres Kraftwerk für die Erzeugung von Solarenergie zu verwandeln, und dabei gleichzeitig die alten Asbestabdeckungen zu sanieren. Energy Resources hat das sowohl technisch als auch wirtschaftlich gesehen wettbewerbsfähigste Angebot abgegeben und der Vis Industrie Alimentari dadurch ermöglicht, nicht nur auf die Fördermittel für die Erzeugung von „grüner“ Energie, sondern auch auf eine weitere Prämie für die Asbestsanierung zuzugreifen. Die 292,5 kWp Photovoltaikanlage stellt eine neue Einnahmequelle dar, da sie für deutliche Einsparungen durch die starke Senkung des Stromverbrauchs sorgt. In fast zwei Jahren nach Inbetriebnahme der Paneele, hat die Produktion von „grüner“ Energie 400.000 kWh, entsprechend über 200.000 kg nicht in die Atmosphäre abgegebenem CO2, sowie eine wirtschaftliche Einsparung von etwa 90.000 Euro pro Jahr erreicht. Dank der Asbestsanierung zählt die der VIS zuerkannte Förderprämie mit zu den höchsten, die man von der Energieagentur GSE bekommen kann.

Das bekannte landwirtschaftliche Unternehmen, das im Bereich der Verwaltung von Geflügelzuchten tätig ist, hat zwei separate Projekte der energetischen Requalifizierung von Ställen und Werkshallen in San Marcello (AN) entwickelt, und eine 200 kW Photovoltaikanlage mit der Formel des Stromtauschs vor Ort installiert (Garantie für eine 90%ige Abdeckung des Bedarfs des Unternehmens an elektrischer Energie), neben einer weiteren 1 mW Anlage, deren erzeugte Energie vollständig ins Stromnetz eingespeist wird. Die Paneele decken nahezu die gesamte Fläche der Dächer ab. Man nutzte die Gelegenheit, die nunmehr veralteten Abdeckungen durch 8 cm dicke „Sandwich“-Isolierpaneele zu ersetzen, die sowohl für eine ausgezeichnete Wärme-/Schalldämmung sorgen, als auch eine weitere Energieeinsparung von insgesamt mehr als 10% ermöglichen. In fast zwei Jahren nach Inbetriebnahme der Paneele, hat die Produktion von „grüner“ Energie den Wert von 1.542.888,608 kWh, entsprechend über 819.274,04 kg nicht in die Atmosphäre abgegebenem CO2, sowie 336.261,90 Liter nicht verbrauchtem

Hevel Vacuum B.V.

Product description The main reasons for vacuum packing meat is that it prevents fast dehydration and discolouring, and prolongs the tenability of the product. More and more professionals also use vacuum packing for the process of ripening. If a lower quality bag is used, the product will quickly loose its colour and taste, and therefore its quality. In the market it is a trend to use cheaper and cheaper vacuum bags. After a while it shows that the quality and taste demands of the customer can not be reached anymore. The problem with using cheaper vacuum bags is that the quality of the packed product will go down as well. Many do not realise that using a brand vacuum bag will give good results, without the need for extra investments or changes in the packaging. Because of the very high lucidity of HEVEL Super Export vacuum bags, the perfect presentation for your meat is created. The bags are non-powdered, and together with the high barrier, they slow down the dehydration of the product, and assure a longer tenability, and better taste and colour. After opening, when the oxygen reaches the meat again, the nice red colour will be retained. The small amount of “drip” makes it also possible to save a lot of money with HEVEL vacuum bags. Meat is mainly vacuum packed.

he company B.S. srl manufactures and offers the market the new food slicers AVN140 multislices and AVM250 for bacon, designed and built to deposit the sliced product (cheese, ham, cooked ham, speck and other cured meats, cooked meat, vegetables, fish) with a thickness ranging from 0.5 mm to 15 mm. AVN140, the smallest of the series, has an area of cutting of 125mm x 125mm suitable for cutting small calibers such as those used for sandwiches or rolls. Although very compact and easy to handle, the machine achieves very high cutting speeds always ensuring a perfect storage, with the multislices mode too. The loading of the product, in various lengths, is performed continuously and in succession in the cluster. The sliced product is deposited directly on toast, bread, cakes, pizzas, trays that will be moving continuously or rhythmic pace. The machine is also equipped with an innovative system that allows a rapid and complete sanitation, without using any tools. AVM250, mainly suitable for pizza, mortadella and product of large size, reaches sizes up to 250mm x 600mm. The standard AVM250 was renewed for cutting slices of bacon with an output of 160 cuts per minute on 2 rows. Each cut slice will be subsequently divided into two parts, then to obtain a total of 640 pieces perfectly aligned on the conveyor belt. To ensure high precision of the thickness of the slice, the two shear zones will be managed independently by a proper engine and from the operator panel you can adjust diffe-

rent heights. On the same line can be connected to each other more slicers, this allows to align the mechanism of the two machines and thus have product rows perfectly in series. The loading of the product takes place continuously and in succession in the cluster. On all BS slicers, while maintaining the same characteristics, it is also possible to install a ribbon to achieve the “portions� with amounts of slices to be chosen that can be stacked or staggered by a programma-

ble distance. The ribbon becomes very useful if you want to deposit more slices on a sandwich, or to prepare the trays with a specific amount of product. All operations can be programmed and stored in order to be able to draw in the shortest possible time data related to a processing previously executed. Finally, the machines are presented ductile thanks to the wheels of which are equipped that allow adaptability to different lines in a short time.

Consumers should be aware of halal norms to avert contamination, mis-selling


ack to back local as well as international cases of contamination of halal food have brought into focus the need for general consumers to be aware of halal rules and regulations. Last week, in a startling revelation, UK’s Food Standards Agency was informed by the ministry of justice that a number of meat pies and pastries supplied to prisons in England and Wales were labelled and served as halal but contained traces of pork DNA. The scandal came days after a UK super market found its frozen beef burgers supplied by an Irish meat processor to contain horse meat and pig DNA. Closer home, some residents were shocked to find that restaurants in five-star hotels used same kitchen equipment on halal and pork products. Last month, in the US, a global fast food chain and one of its franchise owners agreed to pay US$700,000 to members of the Muslim community to settle allegations a Detroit-area restaurant falsely advertised its food as being prepared according to Islamic dietary law. “Such instances of food contamination and mis-selling are worrying, and at the same time unacceptable, to any Muslim irrespective of

HALAL FP 2/13.indd 3

the country or region. Such incidents would have offended and distressed a large number of Muslims across the world. Several times such instances are reported even when there are clear regulations for food establishments to abide by while handling and selling pork products,” said Mr. Saif Mohammed Al Midfa, Director-General of Expo Centre Sharjah. Mr. Midfa pointed out that the public should be aware of proper halal rules and regulations while buying food items, stressing role of the Halal Middle East trade fair and congress in educating the Muslim community on how to ensure that what they are consuming is genuinely halal. Halal Middle East will be held at Expo Center Sharjah from December 16 - 18, 2013, that includes Halal Expo and along with Halal Congress Middle East. “Consumers need to be aware the halal norms governing the system for preparing and serving food products... for

example, in case of meat how animals are slaughtered, labelled, stored, refrigerated, cooked and served,” said Mr. Midfa. “Not just consumers, but retailers, suppliers and restaurants too need to be aware that people have a right to know what food they are eating and it is their duty to describe their products correctly. They should adhere to halal norms prescribed by respective authorities and should not mess up products or cut corners by padding out food with cheaper meats to boost profit,” added Mr. Midfa. Besides stressing the need for being aware of halal procedures, it also underscores the requirement of common halal standards for food as well as other products and services, reflecting the importance of a show like the Halal Middle East. Moreover, global attention is now on the UAE, as the Emirates Authority for Standardization and Metrology (ESMA) is working on unified standards for halal food and cosmetics, which, once approved by the OIC, will be introduced in all Islamic countries in the near future.

alumificio Pedrazzoli, eine italienische, im 1951 gegründete Firma aus mantuanischem. Ursprung, ist derzeit eine im Bezug auf Bio- sowie traditionelle Wurstwaren führende Firma. Wir waren die erste italienische Firma, die in Bio-Produktionen Vertrauen bzw. schon im 1996 eine Bio-Produktion entwickelt hatte; die Fa. Pedrazzoli ist ein Betrieb mit geschlossenem Prozess, unserer Stärke in diesem Bereich, bez. einer Rückverfolgbarkeit des Produkts (d. h. von der Zucht der Schweine bis zum Fertigprodukt) ist unser Betrieb nach wie vor zu berücksichtigen. Mit einem jährlichen Umsatz von 14.000.000 € (davon 80 % im Inland) vermehrt Pedrazzoli ihre Anwesenheit auch auf dem ausländischen Markt, wo sie in einigen innergemeinschaftlichen Ländern mit ihren Produkten schon anwesend ist. Ausserdem werden neue Strategien zur Durchdringung der nicht-EG-angehörigen Märkte zur Zeit geprüft. Wir exportieren in ganz Europa, Russland und Neuseeland und unser Firmenname befindet sich in der Liste der ausfuhrberechtigten Firmen im Bezug auf Japan, Südkorea, Hong Kong. Unsere Schweinezucht besteht aus 5.000 Maststück und bescheinigtem konventionellem Vieh, das Management wird mit einer Genossenschaft,


die nach Bio-Vorschriften 8’000 Schweine züchtet, durchgeführt. Jedes Jahr werden 13.000 Schweine geschlachtet bzw. verarbeitet, dadurch hat man eine jährliche Produktion von 1’500 Tonnen Fleisch. 1 % unseres jährlichen Umsatzes werden in Forschung und Entwicklung investiert. Salumificio Pedrazzoli ist seit 2000 ein Mitglied des ASSICA-Verbands (Arbeitgeberverbands des Fleischbereichs, der dem allgemeinen Verband der italienischen Industrieunternehmen untersteht). Bescheinigungen und Genehmigungen Unser Betrieb ist nach Iso 9001:2000-Norm qualitätssicherungsbescheinigt (Bescheinigungsstelle: Certiquality). Im 1996 erhielt Salumificio Pedrazzoli die Bescheinigung als biologischer Viehzuchtbetrieb, solche Bescheinigung wurde von dem Institut zur Überwachung der Bio-Produkte aus Bologna erteilt. Im 2007 erhielten wir die Genehmigung des Nord-Ost-Qualitätsinstituts bez. der Produktion der kleinen italienischen Jäger-Salamis mit geschützter Ursprungsbezeichnung. Unsere besondere Sorgfalt bei der Verarbeitung unserer Produkte sowie anspruchsvolle Markterfordernisse haben uns erlaubt, sowohl mit einer traditionellen als auch mit einer BioProduktionspalette, Produkte für von Zöliakie erfassene Personen zu pro-

duzieren, aus diesem Grund befindet sich der Name unseres Betriebs in dem Zöliakie-Buch.

Pedrazzoli Spa wurde im Jahr 1951 in San Giovanni del Dosso (Provinz: Mantua), einem bekannten Gebiet der önologischen und gastronomischen Tradition, von Herrn Arnaldo Pedrazzoli, zusammen mit seiner Frau und seinen drei Söhnen, gegründet. Dadurch war sein Wunschtraum von Erfolg gekrönt, da er am Anfang in einer Wurstwarenfabrik als Arbeiter tätig war, dann wurde er Eigentümer der kleinen Metzgerei in seinem kleinen Dorf in der mantuanischen Tiefebene, danach wurde er Inhaber der Fa. Salumificio (auf Deutsch =

27/02/13 15.39


Wurstwarenfabrik) Arnaldo Pedrazzoli, eines Familienunternehmens, das sich mit der Schlachtung sowie der Verarbeitung von Wurstwaren beschäftigte. Übrigens muss man auch sagen, daß der Vater von Arnaldo - der sogenannte “Minghin” - als Schweineschlächter tätig war. Minghin, dessen Name das Ergebnis seines Ruhms war, ging von Haus zu Haus, um Schweine zu schlachen bzw. für die patriarchalischen Bauernfamilien Salamis zu produzieren. Von Schweineschlächter wurde er Arbeiter in einer Wurstwarenfabrik, von Metzger wurde er dann Unternehmer, so erfolgt die Geschichte der Firma Pedrazzoli, bei der nach wie vor die Wurstwarenproduktion als wesentlichen roten Faden zu betrachten ist.

Nun besitzt unser Betrieb eine gegliederte Struktur, die nicht nur aus Verwaltungs- und Personalführungsabteilungen, sondern auch seinerseits aus Fachstrukturen besteht, dieselben sind wie folgt: › Einkaufsabteilung für Bio- und traditionelle Linie, wo sich spezifische Bezugspersonen, die sich mit dem Einkauf von Rohmaterialien, Hilfsstoffen u. Verpackungsmaterialien beschäftigen, befinden; › Produktionsleitungsstruktur, wo sich die für die verschiedenen Linien, für Frisch- und abgelagerte Produkte verantwortlichen Personen befinden; › Qualitätssicherung und HACCP-Management; › Forschungs- und Entwicklungsab-

Bis zum heutigen Tage sind die Enkel von Arnaldo sowie ihre Kinder bei dem Familienunternehmen tätig, wobei die Wurstwarenproduktion traditionsgemäss entwickelt wird. 1984 ist ein Meilenstein für die Entwicklung des Betriebs, da die neue Fabrik in dem handwerklichen Gebiet in San Giovanni del Dosso eröffnet wird. Die Tätigkeit hat eine fortdauernde Entwicklung, sodaß die Fabrik im 1994 nach EG-Normen vergrössert wird. Im 2004 wurde ein neues Gebäude gebaut, dabei befand sich die Stelle für gekochtes Fleisch sowie das Wurstwarenlager und die Nebenkeller zur langen Ablagerung der Wurstwaren.

teilung, die sich aufgrund der neuen Markterfordernisse mit der Entwicklung von innovativen Produkten beschäftigt › Logistik, wo sich die Lagerverantwortlichen für Frisch- u. abgelagerte Produkte befinden; › Handelsabteilung - mit einer Linie für Verteilerketten und Grossisten sowie mit einer weiteren Linie, die sich aus Frisch- und abgelagerten Produkten besteht -, wo sich der Verantwortliche für den Empfang der Bestellungen befindet. Die Schweinerückverfolgbarkeit. Stärke der Fa. Salumificio Pedrazzoli Die Firma Pedrazzoli ist ein eigenartige Struktur, wo sich Zucht, Schlachtung


und Verarbeitung miteinander vervollständigen. Aus diesem Grund produzieren wir exklusive Produkte wie zum Beispiel Wurstwaren aus Biolandbau - Parma-Schinken, Salami, Wurst aus dem Schweinenackenstück, Mortadella u.s.w. - zusammen mit nichtbiologischen Produkten, mit denen es möglich ist alte Geschmäcke wieder zu entdecken. Ein Beispiel dieser Arbeitsphilosophie ist die Padus-Salami (die Posalami). Es handelt sich hierbei um ein exklusives, wie in der Vergangenheit entwickeltes Produkt, das aus gelagertem Fleisch aus ganzen Schweinen besteht: Schinken, Schweinsrücken, Wurst aus Schweinenackenstück, Schweineschulterstück, abgelagertes Hackfleisch, dessen Ablagerung gemäss dem natürlichen langsamen Tempo der ruhigen mantuanischen Keller erfolgt. Zusammen mit der Bescheinigung nach den innergemeinschaftlichen Vorschriften hat unser Betrieb durch eine unabhängige Qualitätssicherungsstelle eine Bescheinigung nach UNI EN ISO 9000:2000-Norm erhalten, damit ist es möglich alle Produktionsprozesse (Zucht, Schlachtung, Wurstwarenproduktion) zu überwachen. 1. Traditionelle und Bio-Zucht Unsere Zucht besteht meistens aus zwei Linien (traditioneller und Bio-Linie), auf die sich die spezifischen entwickelten Produkte beziehen. Die traditionelle italienische und insbesondere mantuanische Schweinezucht (die Schweine werden im Stall gezüchtet und in unserem Gebiet kann man auf dem Lande etruskische Überreste solcher Tätigkeit finden) befindet sich in gut geschützten und isolierten Ställen, wo die Temperatur beständig ist. Die besondere Fütterung ergibt Schweine mit festem Fleisch, das für die Produktion der typischen italienischen Wurstwaren, die wie bekannt ohnegleichen sind, besonders geeignet ist. Es handelt sich hierbei um eine eine aus 5.000 konventionellen Stück be-

27/02/13 15.39


stehende Viehzucht sowie eine bescheinigte, unter Mitwirkung von La Sorgente-Genossenschaft aus Saluzzo (Provinz: Cuneo) verwaltete Zucht, die aus 8.000 Schweinen besteht bzw. sich in einem für solche Züchtungen, nach den Bioproduktionsvorschriften, besonders geeigneten Gebiet befindet (weite Flächen, Strohstreu, Fütterung mit Rohstoffen aus Biolandbau, keine Benutzung von gentechnisch veränderten Organismen sowie keine Benutzung von durch chemische Prozesse erhaltenen Nebenprodukten). Die Genossenschaft - die wichtigste Genossenschaft Norditaliens bezüglich der Produktion von Bio-Schweinen, mit Sauenfläche im Freien, bei einem angeschlossenen Betrieb - benutzt Rohmaterialien aus Biolandbau, einfache aber gleichzeitig Edelprodukte wie Saubohnen, Erbsen, Getreide und Kleien und zur Fütterungszubereitung wendet sie sich an die mit der Genossenschaft verbundene Futtermittelfabrik. Die Fütterung wird aufgrund des Gewichts der einzelnen Schweine zubereitet: für kleine Schweine von 30 bis 80 kg und insbesondere für grössere Schweine - von 80 bis 160 kg - werden Edelrohstoffe (Mais, Gerste, Weizen, Kleie, Soja), die mehr als 90 % der Fütterung sind, sorgfältig ausgewählt. Auch das Alter der Schweine wird streng kontrolliert, da keine Schweine vor neun Monaten Leben geschlachtet werden, sodaß ein durchschnittliches Gewicht von 160 kg erhalten werden kann.


2. Schlachtung von konventionellen und Bioschweinen 13.000 Schweine (davon sind 5’000 konventionelle und 8’000 Bio-Schweine) werden jedes Jahr geschlachtet und verarbeitet, dadurch wird eine jährliche Produktion von 800 Tonnen Fleisch erhalten. Sämtliches bei uns verarbeitetes Fleisch wird aus schweren Schweinen, die für unsere typische Produktion benutzt werden, erhalten. Seit ca. einem Jahr werden auch die verschiedenen Schnitte aus solchem Fleisch durch das GSP-Zeichen (Gran Suino Padano = auf Deutsch: Grosses Poschwein) geschützt; dieses Zeichen kennzeichnet Frischfleischschnitte aus in Italien geborenen, gezüchteten und geschlachteten Schweinen, die für die Produktion der ausgezeichneten Wurstwaren mit geschützter Ursprungsbezeichnung, wie Parma- und San Daniele-Schinken, benutzt werden. Die geschlachteten Schweine werden nach 2073/2005-Vorschriften einer Kontrolle unterworfen, insbesondere den Hälften werden Tampons durch Scheuerschwämmchen aus vier Stellen, d. h. Schweinebacke, Schinken, Lendenstück, durchwachsenem Bauchspeck zur Suche nach Bakterienchargen und Enterobakterien, entnommen. Ausserdem werden Entnahmen den Schenkeln, dem Bauch und der Kehle zur Suche nach eventuellen Salmollebakterien durchgeführt. Einmal im Jahr und bei neuen Zuchten, d. h. bei noch nicht geschlachteten Schweinen, werden die Innereien zur

Suche nach einem eventuellen Vorhandensein von Inhibitoren geprüft. Zur Vermeidung von Kontaminationen mit konventionellen Produkten werden die Bio-Schweine immer zuerst geschlachtet, wenn die Anlagen noch sauber sind. Der Schlachthof ist nach EG-Norm, er darf in alle europäischen Länder exportieren und seit einigen Jahren hat derselbe die Genehmigung zur Ausfuhr nach Japan erhalten. Er darf auch in die Schweiz sowie in den neuen südkoreanischen Markt exportieren. 3. Die Produktion Das wesentliche Merkmal der beiden Linien (der konventionellen sowie der Bio-Linie) ist die Benutzung von italienischem Fleisch aus unseren eigenen Züchtungen (GSP = grosses Poschwein). Die Benutzung von einfachen Rohstoffen und von Qualitätsfleisch erlauben uns keine Konservierungsmittel, Mehle oder andere chemische Hilfsstoffe zu benutzen. Eine andere wichige Eigenschaft ist die exklusive Benutzung von Naturschläuchen, die unserer Salami einen “Hausgeschmack” verleihen bzw. eine natürliche Ablagerung ermöglichen. Die meisten Verarbeitungen erfolgen manuell, insbesondere bei Salamis, wo die Bindung noch handwerklich durchgeführt wird. Andererseits erfolgt die Produktion der meisten gekochten Produkte ohne Produktpressen, sondern mit einem handgemachten Schwartennähen und mit einem langsamen Kochen, um die Entwicklung eines Produktes handwerklicher Qualität, eines Nischen-, zwar keines industriellen Produkts, zu entwickeln. Im Bezug auf die Produktion ist auch die Zeit ein wesentliches, besonders wichtiges Element: mit einer Ablagerung von wenigstens 5 Monaten kann man solche beschränkte Salami- Produktion als wirklich exklusiv betrachten. Die Produktion der Fa. Pedrazzoli besteht aus: › Frischfleisch und verarbeiteter Frischware: Würste, Schlackwürste, gefüllten Schweinsfüssen und anderen Produkten › Wurstwaren: Salamis, durchwachsenen Bauchspecken, Schweineba-

27/02/13 15.39


cken, Würsten aus Nackenstücken, Mortadella, gekochten Produkten sowie gekochten gastronomischen Präparaten Zur Erteilung des Zeichens, das eine geschützte Ursprungsbezeichnung kennzeichnet, an dem Parma- oder San Daniele-Schinken, beachtet die Fa. Salumificio Pedrazzoli alle Anweisungen in den entsprechenden Produktionsrichtlinien. Alle Schinkenproduktionsphasen werden überwacht: von der Schlachtung bis zur Ablagerung und zuletzt bis zum Endphase, zwar die Kennzeichnung mit dem Doppelkrone-Zeichen, das die hohe Qualität des erhaltenen Produkts beweist. Das Schinkenaussehen wird auch sorgfältig geprüft; der Schinken muss der strengen Genossenschaftsregelung entsprechen, die geprüften Merkmale sind wie folgt: Fleischqualität (pH-Abmessung, Jodtiter und andere Qualitätsparameter). Salumificio Pedrazzoli produziert folgende Produktionslinien: Salumificio Pedrazzoli-Linie, die auch konventionelle oder traditionelle Linie genannt wird. Dieselbe bietet traditionelle, typische, mit dem Gebiet, wo die Fa. Salumificio Pedrazzoli gegründet wurde (einem an Kultur und Traditionen reichen ‘Grenzgebiet’ unter den Provinzen Mantua, Modena, Ferrara, Reggio Emilia, Verona und Rovigo), gebundene Produkte. Solche Produktionslinie ist für eine Kundschaft, die sich auf ein langjähriges Zeichen beziehen will bzw. die Zutaten eines Produkts › kleinere Salz- und Konservierungsmittelmenge, Nichtvorhandensein von Kaseinaten und Kindermehlen - sowie die Qualität der Rohstoffe (ausschliesslich aus italienischen Zuchten bzw. in unserem Betrieb geschlachtet) hoch schätzt, besonders geeignet. Primavera-Linie, die erste echte Linie Wurstwaren aus Biolandbau in Italien Primavera-Linie wurde im Jahr 1996 dank unserer natürlichen Suche nach einer Reduktion der Konservierungsmittelmenge entwickelt. Zuerst wurde diese Linie zur Verwirklichung eines Traums, zwar eine Salami-


produktion ohne Konservierungsmittel, nur als Versuch entwickelt. Ab diesem Zeitpunkt beginnt unsere Zusammenarbeit mit der Universität Cremona, mit der wir innovative Gärungsmethoden entwickelt haben. Solche Innovationen erzielten einen grossen Erfolg und aus diesem Grund entschied Salumificio Pedrazzoli zu diversifizieren bzw. eine Bio-Linie ohne Konservierungsmittel zu entwickeln. Primavera wird zuerst ins In-, danach ins Auland eingeführt und somit wird unser Betrieb auch weitreichend gut bekannt. Diese Produktionslinie ist für anspruchsvolle Fachkunden, die ein Produkt nicht nur aufgrund seiner Güte, sondern auch unter Berücksichtigung

seiner Sicherheit, wählt, gedacht und bei der Verarbeitung unserer Produkte werden keine chemischen Zusätze dazugegeben. Und das ist unsere Haupteigenschaft, kein anderer Betrieb könnte das behaupten. Salumificio Pedrazzoli war der erste europäische Produzent, der eine Bio-Linie ohne Konservierungsmittel eingeführt hat. Im Jahr 1998 hat Salumificio Pedrazzoli in Deutschland, auf der BiofachMesse, zur Entwicklung und Erzeugung des ersten Bio-Schinkens den ersten Preis ‘Qualität und Innovation der BioProdukte’ gewonnen. 4. Vermarktung der Produkte In Italien erfolgt die Vermarktung unserer Produkte lediglich durch Verkaufsagenten, die sich an Einzelhändler sowie an das Gaststättengewerbe wenden. In Norditalien erfolgt der Absatz durch Alleinvertreter in den Grenzregi-

onen Modena, Bologna, Mantua, Ferrara, Verona und Reggio Emilia; in dieser letzten Provinz werden die Agenten von einer dafür verantwortlichen Person koordiniert. Was das restliche Gebiet Norditaliens betrifft, hat man einen Gebietsleiter beauftragt; er ist für die Implementierung des Verkaufsnetzes durch auf Einzelverkauf spezialisierte Vertreter verantwortlich. Ausserdem werden unsere Produkte auch in Ligurien und Piemont vermarktet, während dieselben in Lombardei in Varese, Como und Bergamo verteilt werden und wir sind schon dabei eine Verteilung unserer Produkte in der ganzen Lombardei zu planen. In Süditalien gibt es einen Gebietsleiter sowie einen Vertreter in jeder Provinz (im Bezug auf die Regionen: Apulien, Kampanien und Kalabrien, Latium und Sizilien). Im Ausland erfolgt die Vermarktung unserer Produkte durch Verteiler, grundsätzlich durch einen Verteiler pro Land, nur in Deutschland haben wir mehrere Verteiler, weil wir dort mehrere Kunden haben. Derzeit werden Pedrazzoli-Produkte in innergemeischaftlichen Ländern und in einigen Nicht- EU-Ländern verteilt.Die Produkte werden in Deutschland, Frankreich, England, Griechenland, Dänemark, Holland, Belgien, in der Schweiz, in Österreich, Schweden, Japan, Russland, Polen, Neuseeland vertrieben. Was ausländische Länder betrifft, haben wir die Absicht, insbesondere auf den nahen und wichtigen Märkten wie Deutschland und Frankreich, unsere Kundschaft besser zu unterteilen. In England wird unsere Bio-Linievermarktungsstrategie an die grossen Verteilerketten/Konzerne wenden. Es gibt auch gute Wachstummöglichkeiten in Dänemark, wo der Markt sehr bioprodutktionsempfindlich ist bzw. Produktionen ohne Konservierungsmittel hoch schätzt. Wir haben die Nicht-EU-Länder auch nicht vergessen; unser Betrieb investiert zur Zeit in eine Erweiterung ihres Verteilungsnetzes sowohl in Japan als auch in Russland.

ithin the meat industry the continuous analysis of fresh meat and other ingredients is necessary in order to adapt the recipes to ensure a constant batch to batch quality of sausages and various types of meat products. Moreover, legislation bodies require consistent documentation based on accurate data. Therefore, an increasing demand of fast but reliable analytical tools can be observed which are able to replace the often time and labor consuming classical analyses like gravimetric fat determination or combustion method for protein content. The potential of near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy was discovered in the 1960s first for the rapid characterization of agricultural products like grain. Today NIR is widely used in the food industry for non-destructive qualitative and quantitative analysis of raw materials, in-process materials, and finished products throughout the entire manufacturing process. The FT-NIR technology offers a lot of advantages over classical wet-chemical and chromatographic analyses. It is very fast with analysis times below 30 seconds, cost-effective and safe,

since no hazardous chemicals are used. It simply measures the absorption of near-infrared light of the sample at different wavelengths. The recorded NIR spectrum is characterized by absorbance bands of C-H, N-H or O-H groups in the different molecules, making NIR spectroscopy first choice for the analysis of natural materials like meat and sausage products for fat, protein, moisture and other main components. It will help to

homogenizing the meat or sausage by using a knife mill. These types of mill are usually available in the meat analysis lab already. The sample is then put into an open Petri dish and analyzed by placing it on the bench top FT-NIR spectrometer (Figure 1). The use of modern fiber optic probe technology and contactless NIR measurement heads allows even the analysis of carcasses or complete hams without any sample preparation.

tant to know the exact composition of each incoming batch in order to adapt the recipes accordingly. Measuring the fat content of carcasses is also often a criterion for the value-based payment of the suppliers. FT-NIR offers here a valuable tool for assessing the incoming material. The parameters fat, protein and moisture can be determined simultaneously with only one measurement. With the results, decisions can be taken on how to proceed with the production. Table 1 shows typical results of NIR calibrations with RMSECV being the mean analytical error of the method. The NIR analysis can of course not only take place in the laboratory or at-line. Often, the aim is, to measure continuously in the process, e.g. in a mixer, wolf or conveyor screw. The instant results can then be utilized to decide if making adjustments to a batch e.g. for total fat content is required.

Monitoring the final product quality In Germany alone, there are more than 1500 different types of sausages available in the shops, including fresh or fresh smoked, dry and cooked sausages. In addition a wide variation of hams is produced, including the famous Black Forest ham. By law it is

























































Table 2: Calibration results of raw and cooked sausages required to determine the maximum amount of water, minimum amount of protein and total amount of fat in every type of sausage. Moreover, the salt content is of interest for the producer as well as for the customer. FT-NIR spectroscopy has proven to be an efficient analysis method for the determination of moisture, fat, protein and salt content in various types of sausages. Table 2 shows an example of raw and cooked sausages, analyzed in the laboratory of a large German sausage producer. Another big topic for the production of sausages is the optimization of shelf life. One critical parameter is the water activity (aw). It is defined as the amount of water available for microbial (e.g. bacteria, mold or yeast) growth. The larger the value is, the more likely the sausage is prone to decay. The Spanish institute for agrifood science IRTA (Institut Recerca Tecnològia Agroalimenta) confirmed in a successful study that water activity in e.g. fermented sausages (Figure 2) can be analyzed by FT-NIR spectroscopy with high accuracy alongside the determination of water and salt. The study further suggested that FTNIR is appropriate for monitoring the dry curing process non-destructively in the production.

Compositional analysis of rendered products NIR analysis fermented sausages using a contactless measurement head

BRUKER FP 2/13.indd 4

Approximately 40-50% of the weight of any slaughtered animal is not fit for

human consumption. This material is mostly transformed by the rendering industry into highly nutritional ingredients for the animal feed production. These include sources of energy like tallow or lard as well as protein rich material like meat and bone meal or poultry meal. FT-NIR is well established for the analysis of edible fats of animal origin where parameters like the total fatty acid content as well as free fatty acids and iodine value can be analyzed simultaneously. For animal meals the classical constituents like moisture, fat, protein, fiber and ash can be determined as well as more specialized parameters like energy values or amino acid profiles.

Conclusion With the growing global demand for meat and meat products it can be a challenge to keep the standard quality requested by the customers. FT-NIR Spectroscopy being able to provide analysis results in less than a minute has the potential to complement or even substitute a wide range of classical test methods for the quality assessment of meat and meat products in the laboratory as well as online.

FOOD MEASURING INSTRUMENTS MUST MEET THE INTERNATIONAL HACCP STANDARDS AND BE “FOOD SAFE” The food sector’s greatest challenge Raw materials and ready-to-eat foods need to be dealt with in a particularly responsible and correct way. Damaged or incorrectly stored goods can not only cause commercial losses, but at worst may also lead to cases of food poisoning for consumers. Food manufacturers must therefore check goods regularly and be able to prove their duty of care according to strict regulations. To ensure this, supervisory authorities, dealers, logistics companies and foodprocessing businesses use modern measuring technology which helps them perform the daily balancing act between food safety on the one hand and cost-effectiveness on the other. Implementation of the HACCP directives which apply all over the world is mandatory. These form the definitive standard for safe food and are increasingly implemented in country-specific laws and regulations. HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) pursue the goal of minimising food-related illnesses. The concept requires systematic checks, most often of the food temperature over the whole cooling chain, but also of pH levels or cooking oil. Technical monitoring, including documentation, is of prime importance in this area.

Measuring technology innovations must meet sector requirements The international measuring technology manufacturer Testo AG from the Black Forest adapted to

TESTO FP 2/13.indd 3

the specific framework conditions of the food sector at a very early stage and in a very comprehensive way. The company’s aim of offering professional, fast, yet safe measuring solutions for food have recently been rewarded by the HACCP International organisation. Testo AG is the only company in its sector to receive an award for its food-safe measuring instruments. The instruments were really put through their paces in testing according to HACCP standards and certified as “food safe”. A series of demanding criteria had to be met for this: from the testing of the material for robustness and for appropriate design, which does not transfer any dirt or germs to food, along with easy cleaning, through to user-friendly handling and the possibility of documenting measurement data. For businesses in the sector, “food safe” means the greatest possible safety when using the measuring instruments and when monitoring the temperature of goods. Testo temperature measuring instru-

ments for contact and non-contact measurement, the cooking oil tester, along with the data logger family and Testo Saveris passed the test and are rated as safe in measurements on food. “Our high requirements in terms of the quality of the measuring instruments are the basis of this success. When developing the instruments, we pay very close attention to fulfilling the HACCP criteria. This means, for instance, that we deliberately involve the suppliers in this area as well, so as to guarantee a universal standard. Certification according to the DIN EN ISO 13485 and 12830 standards goes without saying”, says Stephanie Knill, Product Manager for Testo hand-held measuring instruments, talking about the success.

Everything measuring technology must be able to do The conditions in which food measuring instruments are used are

21/03/13 15.34


very varied. The HACCP criteria must be fulfilled at every stage of the process which foods go through – From Farm to Fork. The requirements involved in doing so could not be more different in each individual area. All areas of the process do however have one thing in common: the working environment is harsh. Work is done under great time pressure. This means a measuring instrument can be dropped, suffer liquid or dirt ingress or be incorrectly used in the hustle and bustle.

Robustness and simplicity Testo AG’s consistent quality policy takes these special conditions into account. The measuring instruments are appropriately designed. This is the case for example with the testo 104, a folding thermometer for core temperature measurement with an extremely robust metal folding hinge. The possibility of being able to fold the probe up after the measurement makes the instrument easy to handle and solid. Or the testo 108, a temperature measuring instrument with standard penetration probe which gets by with only two keys. It is so easy to operate, that the user does not need to have previous knowledge of any kind. Both instruments cannot be harmed at all by the harsh working environment. At the same time, they meet the HACCP criteria in terms of hygiene, as they are cleaned under running water and germs cannot develop at all in the first place. In addition, there are no superfluous functions which would complicate rapid measurement. Also no preparation time is needed for the measurement in whatever form. Even untrained staff can use these instruments intuitively and carry out safe measurements. Handling is literally accessible at the touch of a button.

TESTO FP 2/13.indd 4

Precision In addition to the very high level of toughness, the Black Forest manufacturers also prioritise the precision of the instruments. These must also be able to measure precisely under more arduous conditions, e.g. where there are big differences in the ambient temperature from one minute to the next. Because the question which is posed for instance in a spot check of the temperature is not just whether the goods are at the correct temperature, but whether the measured value really does correspond to the real situation as well. Testo measuring instruments dispel these doubts. They are calibrated, as well as being approved by DAkkS [the German Accreditation Body] - and now also “food safe”.

Documentation Fulfilling the HACCP criteria does not just mean taking regular measurements. When food inspectors check a business, the operator must be able to prove compliance with the directives at all times. This is done through the time-consuming, often manual documentation of measurement results. For this reason, numerous Testo measuring instruments have appropriate data storage resources or even PC software for data analysis and logging. As an option, handy fast printers can be connected and measurement protocols still developed directly on site. This offers users a high level of safety in terms of being able to verify the proper condition of their goods at all times. For instance, data loggers travel with food being transported in trucks and continuously display the temperature at specifically defined intervals. The smallest temperature fluctuations during transport can therefore be proved. Results can later be read out on the PC. Radio probes are installed at the

important measuring points in large cold stores and warehouses and the data acquired is forwarded to Testo Saveris. The system can save 40,000 measuring values per measurement channel and achieves a storage capacity which means a measurement could be taken every 15 minutes for one year. The temperature is continuously monitored and an alarm is set off at the smallest deviation. Maintenance of the cooling chain is not just ensured, it can also be proved. This means goods which are stored in large quantities are optimally monitored at all times.

Only Testo measuring instruments are “food safe” From a purely technical viewpoint, almost every conventional measuring instrument on the market today is capable of fulfilling the HACCP criteria, to the extent that users are aware of their duty of care and act in an appropriate way. Only a small number of measuring instruments also ensure absolutely safe measurements on foods in the process. “The demands on measuring instruments have been constantly increasing over recent years. In addition to many other factors which measuring technology must comply with in this sensitive area, we also pay attention to the easiest possible use of the instrument. We look on this as a basic requirement of the sector. We know that staff can often change and design our instruments to be as easy and intuitive to use as possible. Because it is only when an instrument can be used correctly that you also get safe results,” says Stephanie Knill and continues: “We are proud of the HACCP International Certification and view this as a spur to make our measuring instruments even safer in the future. We will be a reliable partner for the sector in the future with new innovations all the time.”

LEBENSMITTEL-MESSGERÄTE MÜSSEN DIE INTERNATIONALEN HACCP-STANDARDS ERFÜLLEN UND „FOOD SAFE“ SEIN Die größte Herausforderung der Lebensmittel-Branche Rohstoffe und verzehrfertige Lebensmittel erfordern einen besonders verantwortungsvollen und fachgerechten Umgang. Beschädigte oder falsch gelagerte Ware kann nicht nur wirtschaftliche Verluste verursachen, sondern schlimmstenfalls zu Lebensmittelvergiftungen bei Verbrauchern führen. Lebensmittelunternehmen müssen daher regelmäßig die Ware kontrollieren und ihre Sorgfaltspflicht nach strengen Regularien nachweisen können. Aufsichtsbehörden, Händler, Logistikunternehmen sowie lebensmittelverarbeitende Betriebe bedienen sich dafür moderner Messtechnik die ihnen hilft, den täglichen Spagat zwischen Lebensmittelsicherheit einerseits und Wirtschaftlichkeit anderseits zu vollziehen. Es ist Pflicht, die weltweit geltenden HACCP-Richtlinien umzusetzen. Denn diese bilden den maßgeblichen Standard für sichere Lebensmittel. Und sie werden zunehmend in den länderspezifischen Gesetzen und Verordnungen implementiert. HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points = Gefahrenanalyse und kritische Kontrollpunkte) verfolgt das Ziel, Lebensmittelerkrankungen zu minimieren. Das Konzept fordert systematische Kontrollen, am häufigsten der Lebensmittel-Temperatur in der gesamten Kühlkette aber auch von pH-Werten oder des Frittieröls. Der technischen Überwachung inklusive Dokumentation kommt hierbei eine herausragende Bedeutung zu.

TESTO FP 2/13.indd 5

Messtechnik Innovationen müssen Branchenanforderungen erfüllen Der internationale MesstechnikHersteller Testo AG aus dem Schwarzwald hat sich sehr früh und umfassend auf die besonderen Rahmenbedingungen in der Lebensmittelbranche eingestellt. Die Zielsetzung des Unternehmens, professionelle, schnelle und dennoch sichere Messlösungen für Lebensmittel anzubieten wurden jüngst von der Organisation HACCP International honoriert. Als einziges Unternehmen in seiner Branche wurde die Testo AG für seine lebensmittelsicheren Messgeräte ausgezeichnet. Die Geräte wurden nach internationalen HACCP-Standards auf Herz und Nieren geprüft und als „food safe“ zertifiziert. Eine Reihe anspruchsvoller Kriterien mussten dafür erfüllt werden: von der Prüfung des Materials auf Robustheit, auf sachgemäßes Design, das keinen Schmutz oder Keime auf Lebensmittel überträgt, der einfachen Reinigung bis hin zum nutzerfreundlichen Handling und der Dokumentationsmöglichkeit von Messdaten. Für Betriebe der Branche bedeutet „food safe“ größtmögliche Sicherheit beim Einsatz der Messgeräte und bei der Temperaturüberwachung der Waren. Testo Temperatur-Messgeräte für Kontakt- und berührungslose Messung, der Frittieröltester sowie die Datenlogger-Familie und Testo Saveris haben die Prüfung bestanden und gelten als sicher bei Messungen an Lebensmitteln. „Unsere

hohen Ansprüche an die Qualität der Messgeräte ist die Basis für diesen Erfolg. Bei der Entwicklung der Geräte achten wir streng auf die Erfüllung der HACCP-Kriterien. So schließen wir z.B. bewusst auch die Zulieferer in dieser Sparte ein, um einen durchgängigen Standard zu garantieren. Die Zertifizierung gemäß den Normen DIN EN ISO 13485 und 12830 versteht sich von selbst“, beschreibt Stephanie Knill, Produktmanagerin für TestoHandmessgeräte den Erfolg.

Was Messtechnik alles können muss Die Bedingungen, unter denen Lebensmittel-Messgeräte eingesetzt werden sind sehr vielfältig. In jeder Prozessphase die Lebensmittel durchlaufen – From Farm to Fork - müssen die HACCP-Kriterien erfüllt werden. Die Anforderungen in jedem einzelnen Bereich könnten dabei verschiedener nicht sein. Eines haben jedoch alle Prozessbereiche gemeinsam: die Arbeitsumgebung ist rau. Es wird unter großem Zeitdruck gearbeitet. Da kann ein Messgerät herunter fallen, bekommt Flüssigkeit oder Schmutz ab oder wird in der Hektik unsachgemäß bedient.

Robust- und Einfachheit Die konsequente Qualitätspolitik der Testo AG trägt diesen speziellen Rahmenbedingungen Rechnung. Die Messgeräte sind entsprechend konzipiert. So z.B. das testo 104, ein Klappthermometer zur Kerntemperaturmessung mit einem äußerst robusten Metall-Klappgelenk. Die Möglichkeit, den Fühler nach der Messung einklappen zu können, macht das Gerät handlich und stabil. Oder testo 108, ein Temperatur-Messgerät mit Standard Einstechfühler, das mit nur zwei Tasten auskommt. Es ist so einfach zu bedienen, dass der Anwender keinerlei Vorkenntnisse mitbringen muss. Beiden Geräten können raue Arbeitsumgebungen nichts anhaben. Gleichzeitig entsprechen sie den HACCP-Kriterien in Sachen Hygiene, da sie unter fließendem Wasser gereinigt werden und sich Keime gar nicht erst entwickeln können. Außerdem gibt es keine überflüssigen Funktionen welche die schnelle Messung verkomplizieren würden. Ebenso muss die Messung nicht in irgendeiner Form lange vorbereitet werden. Selbst ungeübtes Personal kann diese Geräte intuitiv bedienen und sichere Messungen durchführen. Die Handhabung erschließt sich förmlich per Knopfdruck.

TESTO FP 2/13.indd 6

Präzision Neben der sehr hohen Belastbarkeit setzten die Schwarzwälder ihre Prioritäten auch auf die Präzision der Geräte. Diese müssen auch unter erschwerten Bedingungen, z.B. bei hohen Differenzen in der Umgebungstemperatur von einer Minute zur anderen, genau messen können. Denn die Frage die sich z.B. bei einer Stichprobenkontrolle der Temperatur stellt ist nicht nur ob die Ware die korrekte Temperatur aufweist, sondern ob der gemessene Wert tatsächlich auch der Realität entspricht. Testo Messgeräte räumen diese Zweifel aus. Sie sind kalibriert und durch die Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle (DAkkS) zugelassen - und nun auch ‚food safe‘.

Dokumentation Die HACCP-Kriterien zu erfüllen, bedeutet nicht nur regelmäßig zu messen. Wenn LebensmittelKontrolleure einen Betrieb prüfen, muss der Unternehmer die Einhaltung der Richtlinien jederzeit nachweisen können. Dies äußert sich in der aufwändigen, oft manuellen Dokumentation von Messergebnissen. Deshalb verfügen zahlreiche TestoMessgeräte über entsprechende Speichermöglichkeiten oder sogar PC-Software zur Datenauswertung und -protokollierung. Optional können handliche Schnelldrucker angeschlossen und Messprotokolle noch direkt vor Ort erstellt werden. Der Anwender erhält dadurch ein hohes Maß an Sicherheit, den ordnungsgemäßen Zustand seiner Waren jederzeit belegen zu können. Datenlogger bspw. reisen beim Lebensmitteltransport in LKWs mit und zeichnen in fest definierten Abständen die Temperatur kontinuierlich auf. Kleinste Temperaturschwankungen während des Transports können so nachgewiesen werden. Die Ergebnisse können später auf dem PC ausgelesen werden. In großen Kühl- und

Lagerhäusern werden Funkfühler an den wichtigen Messstellen installiert und die gewonnenen Daten an Testo Saveris weitergeleitet. Das System kann pro Messkanal 40.000 Messwerte speichern und erreicht eine Speicherkapazität, mit der ein Jahr lang alle 15 Minuten eine Messung erfolgen könnte. Die Temperatur wird kontinuierlich überwacht und bei kleinsten Abweichungen ein Alarm ausgelöst. Die Einhaltung der Kühlkette wird nicht nur gewährleistet sondern ist auch nachweisbar. In großen Mengen gelagerte Ware wird so jederzeit optimal überwacht.

Nur Testo-Messgeräte auch „food safe“


Rein technisch gesehen vermag heute fast jedes herkömmliche Messinstrument auf dem Markt die HACCP-Kriterien zu erfüllen, sofern sich der Anwender seiner Sorgfaltspflicht bewusst ist und entsprechend handelt. Dabei auch absolut sichere Messungen an Lebensmitteln zu gewährleisten, das leisten nur wenige Geräte. „Die Anforderungen an Messgeräte sind in den letzten Jahren stetig gestiegen. Neben vielen anderen Faktoren die Messtechnik in diesem sensiblen Bereich erfüllen muss, achten wir auch auf die möglichst einfache Anwendung der Geräte. Wir begreifen dies als Grundvoraussetzung der Branche. Wir wissen, dass Personal häufig wechseln kann und gestalten unsere Geräte so einfach und selbsterklärend wie möglich. Denn nur wenn ein Gerät richtig eingesetzt werden kann, erhält man auch sichere Ergebnisse“, sagt Stephanie Knill und ergänzt: „Wir sind stolz auf die HACCP International Zertifizierung und begreifen diese als Ansporn, unsere Messgeräte künftig noch sicherer zu machen. Der Branche werden wir auch in Zukunft mit immer neuen Innovationen ein zuverlässiger Partner sein.“

in Milan and three subsidiaries in Romania, Slovenia and Croatia, plus a network of distributors in Europe, in 2004 Fratelli Pagani S.p.A. launched the ambitious Pagani Chef project, for ready-to-cook meat products: the initiative enjoyed instant success, and continues to grow at an impressive rate. The goal is to offer customised technical support to every customer, thanks to our network of technical sales representatives and a quick, efficient internal department offering refresher courses to certain

customers using the latest technology for ingredients and seasoning products designed to suit specific needs. Our strategy for future growth is based on three main areas: developing the division dedicated to Functional Ingredients and Seasoning for medium and large companies in Italy, consolidating the Pagani Chef line, and third and most importantly, the concerted consolidation of our international expansion, which is set to represent an increasingly large proportion of the business in

the next few years.Our most important new products. Our products are already able to face the challenges laid down by the markets. For example, in terms of functional proteins for specific uses, we have pork, poultry and beef whose origins are guaranteed. Then there is the new Kutmix for Wurstel and our “kutter” products, together with our mixes for quick maturing salamis, mixes for cooked hams and “bars” for pre-sliced products, which hold the slices brilliantly, even when there is a low sodium content.

MASTRO FP.indd 3

extremely efficient manner -Â ranging from raw material reception through finished products. See for yourself the benefits you can gain from the PCS 7 with Dairy Functional Toolset tailored specifically to dairy operations, and the Advanced Process Functions (APF) engineering tool, a cross-industry functional enhancement. The integrated process control system specifically for your industry The SIMATIC PCS 7 and the dairyspecific software concept let you carry out all the standard functions of dairy operations efficiently and throughout the complete process.

Safe material transfer The Process Line Manager works on a job-specific basis. Therefore, this manager ensures that material transfers reach their goals safely and at the correct quality level. The individual jobs - recirculation, heating/ cooling or mixing, for example - can

be entered manually or run automatically using the SIMATIC PCS 7 recipe archive or a host system. In order to ensure a reliable process, an internal plausibility check is carried out before the start of the job (1.) with the Tank Manager for the source and target tank, (2.) with the Pipe Module and optionally (3.) with the Route Control System. If the Process Line Manager receives the go-ahead, it assigns a unique batch ID for all tanks and valves that are involved (to ensure efficient product traceability) and transfers all order-related data to the archive manager. These procedures conducted by the Process Line Manager ensure the process is reliable and provides support for efficient tracing. Reliable tank management The Tank Manager module of SIMATIC PCS 7 with Dairy Functional Toolset works closely with the Process Line Manager and our SIMATIC IT Unilab laboratory information mana-

gement system. Together they monitor all the specifics relating to tanks and mixers – physical parameters, contents, all releases,relevant status information And CIP requirements. Traceable material movements The Archive Manager for SIMATIC PCS 7 with Dairy Functional Toolset records each individual material movement within the systems. When a transfer begins, all relevant information about the source - starting time, quantity reference value or destination - is stored in the user archive. At the end, the finishing time, quantity required and status are also stored. The process visualization allows monitoring and tracking of the corresponding material movements at all times. Host IT systems can also use the interfaces of SIMATIC PCS 7 to access this data. The same quality worldwide If you want to bring innovative products to the market more quickly, then you must ensure consistent product specifications worldwide and at all times. The Interspec module acts as a complete product specification database for the company as a whole and creates ideal prerequisites for intelligent Product Lifecycle Management. It also enables product specifications to be exchanged and standardized on a global basis.

Everything for the dairy industry Milk quality is tested and sorted; the milk undergoes a gentle treatment and an equally gentle transport process; then intermediate products are prepared for possible further processing. And of course, quality is guaranteed at every stage. We supply you with the appropriate range of automation products, systems and solutions for all processing steps.

Achieving goals with perfectly coordinated processes Whether it’s milk, cream, butter, soured milk and yogurt, cream cheese and rennet cheese or concen-

MASTRO FP.indd 4


trates and powders, you have to coordinate a large number of process steps en route to the end product. These include heating and cooling, adding cultures, homogenizing and fermenting. You also have to meet numerous simultaneous requirements, which include safe product quality, production optimization, and efficient process line utilization. Throughout all of these responsibilities, we will be there to support you with our solutions that help you achieve your goals safely. Our SIMATIC PCS 7 process control system and software tools with predefined functions provide you with processes that seamlessly integrate and operate economically. MES solutions also use dairy-specific engineering tools and support you with process expertise requiring minimal engineering effort. Further modules complete the range of offerings from high-speed local area networks to high-end process instrumentation. These allow us to provide you with solutions using optimally coordinated components, and allow you to react perfectly to unanticipated incidents and deal efficiently with all production challenges.

Flexible cleaning-in-place (CIP) system for perfectly clean dairy operations Hygiene and cleanliness are absolutely essential for ensuring your dairy products only contain what they should - and this applies throughout the entire production chain. We have the perfect answer to this challenge with our solution for your CIP system automation. Since CIP systems often vary greatly in practice, our flexible CIP system is a standardized software solution that supports easy creation of individual cleaning programs, automatic implementation, and flexible changes as needed. Your operations staff can define relevant program sequences quickly and

easily, and without any programming knowledge. Cleaning types that are typical for dairies and cheese makers are stored in the Online Engineering Tool, enabling quick processing during operation. This added benefit pays off throughout the complete life cycle of your CIP system for dairy. With precise dosing and capabilty for continuous optimization, a flexible CIP system will achieve optimal cleaning and disinfection while saving time and minimizing consumption of cleaning materials. These capabilities are integrated into Siemens SIMATIC PCS 7 system, which means our flexible CIP system for dairy can deliver significant cost savings of between 20 and 30%.

Cut costs with Packaging Line


The filling plant and packaging department represent high cost factors on the path to ready-to-deliver dairy packaging. This results from heterogeneous and isolated solutions. We offer an efficient alternative with our Optimized Packaging Line, the integrated automation solution for dairy filling and packaging lines and machines.

etra Pak has recently launched the Tetra Evero Aseptic one–litre – the first aseptic carton bottle for milk. The new carton combines the easy handling and pouring of a bottle with the environmental and cost advantages of a carton. It is initially being aimed at the ambient white milk market, including non-oxygen sensitive enriched products, including flavoured milk and cream. Unlike traditional carton materials, which are aseptically sterilised before they are formed into shape, the Tetro Evero Aseptic is pre-formed and not flat-packed, meaning it requires an alternative approach. The majority of existing technologies for sterilising performed shapes rely on a gas-condensation process. This process involves the gas condensing on the material surface, but this is known to be complex and difficult to control.

MASTRO FP.indd 3

The Tetra Evero Aseptic, however, uses a new gas-phase sterilisation technique which involves the cartons passing through a unique aseptic chamber in pairs where they are exposed to hydrogen peroxide. The gas comes into contact with the whole preformed package – inside and out, removing any contaminants that might have been present before entering the aseptic chamber. The cartons travel on steel belts during this production process. The use of steel belts is a highly hygienic alternative to using traditional plastic and PU conveyor systems. Avoiding the spread of contaminants is imperative in belt technology: steel belts are far easier to clean than their plastic counterparts and do not need to be lubricated in order to transmit power. This is important because germs and potentially harmful bacteria are attracted

to dust generated by lubricant grease, which can potentially contaminate food or other products. Steele belts are not just available as flat conveyors, they can be customised in many ways and offer novel and exciting solutions to a variety of complicated conveying problems. Belts can be perforated with complex patterns for timing, vacuum or dosing applications. Together, the steel belt technology and the new gas-phase sterilisation technique used in the production of the new Tetra Evero Aseptic have resulted in a highly effective means of commercial sterility – an innovative development which should now set the gold standard for the production of aseptic packaging across Europe and the rest of the world.

AVERY DENNISON’S WASH-OFF LABEL WINS WORLDSTAR PACKAGING AWARDS 2013 PET recycling solution recognized once again by the industry Avery Dennison Corporation (NYSE:AVY), a global leader in the label and packaging industry, won the WorldStar Packaging Awards 2013 in the Food category for its wash-off pressure-sensitive label that dramatically improves the recycling of Polyethylene terephthalate (PET). The WorldStar Awards, hosted by the World Packaging Organization, are preeminent international honors that aim to recognize the continual advancement of the state of packaging art and create a living standard of international packaging excellence. The 2013 competition attracted 316 entries from 33 countries. The awards are presented only to those packages which have already won recognition in national or regional competitions, and are compared by an expert panel of judges to similar packages from around the world.  “We are excited that our wash-off label has been recognized by the WorldStar Awards,” said Donald A. Nolan, president of Materials Group, Avery Dennison Corporation. “We strive to be a responsible label producer and work closely with our customers to develop solutions that minimize environmental impact. We will continue


to support sustainability with our innovative solutions.” Direct printing, paper labels, and standard pressure-sensitive labels applied to PET bottles tend to lower PET recycling efficiency and the quality of recycled PET. Avery Dennison developed a label material using unique technology that makes it much easier to recycle PET bottles. The wash-off label is a label material that releases from PET bottles with no adhesive residue during recycling process. The wash-off label helps enhance the efficiency on the PET bottle recycling, by creating more value added reclaimed PET, reducing CO2 emissions from incineration, and saving incineration expenses.  This is the third such award for Avery Dennison’s washoff label developed in Korea in the past 12 months. In addition to the WorldStar Awards, this product had won two other awards in 2012 – the Eco-package category at the 2012 Asia Star Awards organized by Asian Packaging Federation; and the top honor at the Korea Star Awards 2012 hosted by the Minister of Knowledge and Economy and Korea Institute of Industrial Technology Packaging Technology Center.

The Swedes now revealed what visitors can expect to see in Swegon’s booth (11.0 B18): “We have numerous innovative systems and components to exhibit”, says Horst Buschmann, CEO of the German branch Swegon GmbH and adds: “And of course you can expect some surprises!”


wegon is going to present its innovative and prizewinning system TELLUS for the first time in Germany. TELLUS is a complete HVAC and energy plant. TELLUS produces and distributes demand controlled acclimatised air, heating cooling and tap water. All energies can be distributed simultaneously and independent of each other, according to the actual demand. The integration of all modules guarantees optimum control and interactive dynamic energy recovery. “There are no demarcation lines and the user does not have to deal with the complexity of a regular HVAC system”, explains Horst Buschmann. TELLUS integrated design minimises the need of energy supplied to the building by demand controlled ventilation and water (temperatures and flows). The energy that is still needed will hereafter be produced in the most efficient way, e.g. by energy recovery in multiple steps. TELLUS will log the needed external energy and the ratio to the supplied energy is

USING PACKAGING TO AVOID FOOD WASTAGE Bremen, February 2013 – According to the problem that half of all food produced worldwide is disposed of INCPEN, an institute for packaging and environment, awarded packaging a key role as an avoidance strategy. Without packaging, manufacturing, transport, distribution, supplies and purchases would be impossible for practically all consumable goods. The kind for packaging makes the different. Till now, poor storage, strict orientation toward the best before date, special offers for larger packs and stingy consumer behavior all contribute toward the fact that increasing amounts of food are simply thrown away. The institute claims that packaging can play an outstanding role in this environment in order to develop practical solutions to the problem. High-quality packaging can significantly reduce food wastage along the supply chain if it is capable of considerably prolonging durability and shelf life, ensuring non-hazardous and safe transport, and taking consideration of the changes in lifestyle and consumer habits. With reference to its protective and conserving properties, packaging today can be regarded as the most important “green technology”. Actega DS attributes top priority to avoiding food wastage, promoting environmentally-compatible packaging and packaging solutions capable of meeting the challenges of the future. The following applies for the entire portfolio of seal solutions for the food and beverages industry: conformity with food laws in accordance with the FDA and the EU. For example, PROVALIN®, a compound which is free of PVC

REA JET FP.indd 3

and plasticizers for metal vacuum seals. We already avail of an extensive range of applications for this product. Practically all requirements concerning contents, sealing processes, storage and seal sizes can be complied with. All types of contents can be safely packaged across the entire BBD. There are absolutely no restrictions during the filling and sealing process – including hot- and cold-filling as well as subsequent heat treatment such as pasteurization and sterilization – or in terms of the lid size. For example, Svelon® representing various versions of PVC-free granulate for crown corks and aluminum seals for beer, mineral water, wine etc. The 855 variant is meanwhile the international industrial standard and approved by all major filling companies and manufacturers of brand items. The 880 TC compound is the world’s first PVC-free compound for twist crown corks. For example, Oxylon®, a barrier compound specially for protecting beverages against oxygen and other volatile substances. The 420 version, for example, is recommended by the French Champagne Association while the CS 25 variant applies as the standard barrier compound for beer and fruit juice worldwide. For example, SvelOX®, a scavenger compound which absorbs the oxygen present in the sealed bottle and prevents migration by oxygen into the contents. In pursuit of these seal solutions, the company has been working with the most flexible, low-migration, heatresistant material – TPE – for several decades, thereby dispensing with PVC and phthalates altogether.

Mexico’s fresh produce sector is confident that a new food safety initiative could help boost the presence of the nation’s fruits and vegetables in European supermarkets


ore Mexican fruits and vegetables could be making their way onto UK supermarket shelves over the next 12 months thanks to a major new agreement signed by industry body Mexico Calidad Suprema and the Mexican government. Mexico Calidad Suprema, which represents some of the biggest producer groups in the country, has been working with the country’s government to certify thousands of hectares of pineapples, avocados, papayas and mangoes for export to Europe. Over the course of 2013, the initiative will be enlarged to include

Mexico calidad suprema FP.indd 3

products as diverse as berries, bananas, prawns, grapes, pork, beef, broccoli and tomatoes. Mexico Calidad Suprema has signed an agreement with Mexican food safety authority SENASICA to promote the implementation of the Contamination Risk Reduction System (SRRC) environmental management programme for fruits and vegetables. Greater SRRC compliance will, in turn, enable greater numbers of growers to achieve Good Agricultural Practice standards MEXICO G.A.P. and GLOBALG.A.P., which are increasingly a prerequisite when it comes to accessing international

markets. As part of the initiative, Mexico Calidad Suprema is helping a number of producers’ groups implement food safety programmes, which include putting in place practices that reduce contamination risks, as well as improving the use and handling of pesticides. The organization, in conjunction with the Mexican government, is strengthening the safety capabilities of Mexican producers through teaching programmes, technical assistance and the monitoring of contaminants to enable growers to comply with export requirements. At the current time, the association is working in several areas of the

15/02/13 11.15


country with leading grower organizations, including 1,505 hectares of pineapples, 185 hectares of papayas, 2,100 hectares of mangoes and 8,900 hectares of avocados. In total, some 13,142 hectares covering the four product areas will be positively affected by the initiative, which will benefit 530 production sites and 33 packhouse facilities. According to Mexico Calidad Suprema, the benefits of the exercise will become apparent not just for Mexican producers and packers who are looking to achieve MEXICO G.A.P. certification, but also for European consumers. “Consumers will have the certainty of knowing they are buying products that comply with the highest standards of food health, safety and quality,” a spokesperson said. “Mexico Calidad Suprema is helping growers to meet international food safety and quality standards and through this supporting the positing


of Mexican products, by giving consumers in Europe a guarantee that the fruits and vegetables are produced under the strictest quality controls, obtained through MEXICO G.A.P. and Mexico Calidad Suprema certification,” the spokesperson added. About Mexico Calidad Suprema Mexico Calidad Suprema is a not-for-profit industry association that brings together the principal producer organizations in Mexico along with the Mexican government, which helps growers to achieve international and national quality and food safety standards. The association was created as a direct result of the need to encourage the consumption of Mexican products both inside Mexico and in export markets through assurances

that the products offer the highest quality and are free of risks to consumer health. Mexico Calidad Suprema, through the MEXICO G.A.P. certificate, has developed diverse strategies to drive compliance with regulations for risk reductions, the environment and social responsibility, through this boosting the supply of safe, high quality products that meet all the demands of the European market.

FEFCO, the umbrella organisation of the European Corrugated Board Industry, is launching an impactful advertising campaign this spring to reinforce perceptions about the many benefits of corrugated packaging. The campaign is be fronted by ‘Mr Corrugated’, an animated character made from corrugated board. The aim is to engage key influencers on an emotional as well as rational level. Print and video executions emphasise the vast array of advantages associated with corrugated packaging, including its recyclability, its renewability, its versatility and its popularity with shoppers. As well as introducing ‘Mr Corrugated’, the campaign will also drive interested parties back to the organisation’s “Corrugated of Course” website (, which brings together the latest news and stories from

THE CLASSICAL TASTE OF ITALIAN OIL ENCOUNTERS TECHNOLOGY The MONINI oil mill has been bottling and marketing high quality extra-virgin olive oil in Italy’s and the Mediterranean’s major production areas for 3 generations. In the Poggiolo mill, the company is committed to developing the culture of extra-virgin olive oil, raising awareness, examining and controlling all the parameters of the production chain: from the selection of the plants to grow to the verification and adaptation of harvesting, processing, and pressing methods. Over the past few years, P.E. LABELLERS has supplied the Monini oil mill with three cold glue labelling machines for their 8,000, 18,000 and 10,000 bph lines. The P.E. LABELLERS cold glue units stand out for their cutting edge structural and conceptual features: sturdiness, durability, reliability, thanks to the widespread use of low wear materials and almost no maintenance required. Besides the cold glue stations, the last labelling machine, supplied in 2012, is equipped with three adhesive stations, out of which one is for applying the U-shaped seal. The installed adhesive stations are among the most advanced available on the market. All parameters can be adjusted from the control panel with the possibility to store up to 200 different labels.


across the supply chain to highlight how corrugated packaging can bring value in all areas. Ben Blydenstein, Marketing and Environment Director at FEFCO, comments: “Our industry’s corrugated packaging solutions have many benefits: they minimise waste by protecting products on their journey through the supply chain. They reduce the costs of logistics and handling and sell the products they display. All this is achieved using a fully renewable and recyclable material. Also corrugated board’s adaptability means that it’s a great material to innovate with. Our challenge is to get these messages across clearly. With ‘Mr Corrugated’ we have a fun, impactful and appealing way of achieving this.”

hree decades have passed since in the early 80’s, in a small factory located on the outskirts of Schio, two eager and enthusiastic engineers began to try their hand at used packaging machines, with a view to restoring them to an acceptable working condition. This operation was called an overhaul, a term which has now gone out of use in today’s “disposable” world. It was exactly this constant disassembling, replacing, modifying and testing of old machinery that led to the decision to create new and modern machines. In 1985 the first packaging machines of the newly established Tecno Pack were introduced on the market, immediately enjoying great appreciation among the clientele. Thus began the company’s long journey, focused on responding promptly and professionally to the ever more demanding needs of the market, advancing with courage and determination down the challenging road of automatic packaging

MASTRO FP.indd 3

systems. These were years of commitment, sacrifice and constant research, but also great satisfaction and growth. In the meantime, Tecno Pack moved to a new headquarters in the Schio industrial zone, an area better suited for the company’s evolving and growing logistic production needs.Since 2011 the continuity of our work is ensured in a new 6000 m² site also situated in the traditionally hard-working town of Schio, industrially nicknamed “the little Manchester of Italy” since the second half of the nineteenth century. Machine after machine, system after system the story continues, inevitably entwined with professional and personal affairs without, however, affecting the company’s ideological continuity which has been guaranteed over time by constant investment and commitment in research and innovation, the solid genesis of success which led Tecno Pack to qualify as a full-fledged market leader. Tecnopack is pleased to inform that during IBA 2012 it is presenting

the vertical pillow-pack machines on completion of its already wide range of machinery.

Ishida multihead weighers are playing a critical role in helping one of the UK’s largest frozen vegetable processors and packers increase throughput by as much as 20%.


he five Ishida weighers at the Pinguin Foods UK site in Kings Lynn include an advanced 24 head CCW-R multihead weigher with three litre hoppers for mixed vegetables and four 5 litre hopper 14-head models for single varieties, which include carrots, peas, sweet corn, beans, broccoli and cauliflower. On the lines where the Ishidas have been installed, along with new colour sorters which check for and reject substandard vegetables, overall weighing accuracies are now running at under 0.7% deviation from the target weight compared to around 1.8% previously. Pinguin Foods UK is part of the Bel-

ISHIDA 2/13 FP.indd 3

gium-based PinguinLutosa group, a global leader in the supply of vegetable and potato based top quality easy to prepare products. Increasing demand, along with Pinguin’s continuing drive for enhanced quality and improved efficiency, led the company to install the new Ishida weighers as part of its target to increase production throughput in the factory by 20%. As Paul Spurrell, the company’s Chief Engineer, explains: “It is vital that we keep up with the times. The high quality standards that we set ourselves and which our customers demand mean we have to invest in the latest and best equipment.”

The Ishidas are handling pack sizes of between 125g and 2.5kg, including mixed vegetables of two, three and four varieties on the 24 head mix weigher. In addition, the weighers can be used for special pack requirements. For example, one weigher in ‘double dump’ format is being used to pack 10kg boxes, where it has effectively doubled speed and greatly improved accuracy over the previous method. While the Ishidas were selected initially for their speed, their superior accuracy and reliability have been equally valuable benefits. “We have had no problems with the weighers

07/02/13 16.47


since their installation,” confirms Packing Hall Manager Steve Walton. “Another major advantage is their flexibility; we can easily switch product from line to line depending on requirements, something that was not possible with our previous volumetric and older multihead models.” Part of this flexibility is thanks to the ease of changeover on the Ishida weighers. Product specifications including target weight are pre-programmed into the easy-to-use remote control unit for changeover at the

ISHIDA 2/13 FP.indd 4

touch of a button. The waterproof construction of each model and easy to remove change parts also mean clean down can be carried out quickly and efficiently. The weighers are part of an ongoing multi-million pound investment in both the processing and packing operations at Kings Lynn, involving the installation of hi-tech equipment throughout, such as the state-of-theart colour sorters that can detect imperfections in the vegetables and reject them at high speeds. Another key focus of the investment is on improvement in energy efficiencies. Again the Ishida weighers are playing an important part in this, along with Pinguin initiatives such as reduced water consumption and the introduction of more efficient lighting. The weighers are in operation 24 hours a day, five days a week, with additional weekend working during busy seasons such as the run up to Christmas. Typical speeds currently are around 75 packs per minute for a 1kg pack, well within the weigher’s capabilities of 90 packs per minute. “We are continuing to work on further developing the performance of the lines,” explains Paul Spurrell. “Our focus is not just on speed but on delivering consistency and ensuring that the weighers are fully integrated so that they work as efficiently as possible with existing equipment.” Indeed, one immediate impact of the weighers was the need to install new checkweighers, also from Ishida. “Our old checkweighers simply couldn’t cope with the higher line speeds,” explains Steve Walton. The DACS-W checkweighers feature Ishida’s unique DSP (Digital Signal


Processing) chip which permits accurate signal processing under a wide range of weighing conditions, together with an Ishida built load cell that delivers high sensitivity, response and accuracy. Speed and accuracy are further enhanced by the light weight conveyor, enhanced direct drive motor and a special low friction belt. Installation of all the Ishida equipment “went like clockwork”, according to Paul Spurrell. “It was literally a question of plug in and play. The weighers are very easy to operate. “In the few months that they have been installed we have already achieved a 15% improvement in throughput so we are well on the way to reaching our 20% target,” he continues. Ultimately a repeat purchase is the best indication of the suitability of any equipment for a job. Pinguin Foods first proved the effectiveness of Ishida weighers with the installation of one model, and this led to them being adopted over four more lines. Now the company is planning to convert its final line to include Ishida equipment. “We are a forward looking company and constantly challenging ourselves to deliver the highest standards to our customers,” concludes Pinguin Foods UK’s Managing Director Nigel Terry. “This means we are committed to continual investment in the best equipment that will help us deliver on these promises. Ishida weighers are a key part of this.”

ike all sugar producers in the Philippines, and across Asia, Victorias Milling Company (VMC) has to continually improve the efficiency of its factory output performance in order to compete in the international market place,” stresses Mr. Arcadio “Boy” Lozada Jr., Vice President for Manufacturing at VMC. “This year, VMC achieved higher than normal overall time efficiency for its sugar operations. But we feel there are still issues in operations that need to be addressed. For instance, while the combined planned and unplanned stoppages of the factory are close to 10% of the operating time and can be considered par in the industry, we still feel there is a way for us to reduce further the unplanned downtime and at the same time the maintenancerelated cost of operations.”

The four key factors in order to achieve this are as follows: 1) Properly trained maintenance crew 2) Proper tool for equipment overhauls

3) Reliable condition monitoring equipment 4) Assurance of good quality replacement parts

Enhancing the skills of the VMC crew “People. They are the core that makes up who we are as a company. We value our people and we recognize the need to continually educate and offer them training”, adds Mr. Lozada. Indeed, this is one of the reasons why SKF is valued by its clients. SKF products offered come with training modules that are practical, such as the bearing maintenance and technical courses, condition monitoring through vibration analysis, and mechanical power transmission lessons, to name a few.

Increasing productivity through product improvements Bearings are viewed as the heart of the rotating machinery, and so it is important to protect and take care of these. Mr. Lozada continues that “from experience, unsealed or open bearings are normally susceptible to a variety of issues that can

affect performance. These include the ingress of dirt and water, lubricant loss, and the ingress of juice from the sugar cane. The latter is perhaps the most damaging as this leaves heavy sticky sugar residue on the inner bearing contact surfaces, and causes severe corrosion, both of which result to bearing failure. The SKF sealed spherical roller bearings avoid these and are very effective in extending the bearing life and critical machinery maintenance time, which in turn helps increase our productivity, while lowering our bearing replacement costs.” In addition, the SKF split bearing housings have replaced the single mould housings previously used at VMC. With this, maintenance routines are now made easier because the location part of the housing stays in place at all times; unlike with single moulds, where the housing still needs to be dismounted and removed during shaft/bearing inspection and repair. “Ultimately, this gets our machinery operating again faster, which is another contributor to productivity,” he points out.

n the modern fruits/vegetables processing industry the need of diversification in order to process various types of raw material is becoming a must. This possibility would decrease considerably the amount of time the machinery would remain idle with consequent improvement of the economic results of the plant. This is especially true when plants are designed to process only one type of fruit/vegetable available only in a limited number of weeks/ months. Typical examples are tomato processing plants where, in the majority of the areas the raw material is only available during two-three months. Another example is tropical fruit processing dedicated for mango, or passion fruit or other available only for a limited season. A system to overcome the problem is to design a flexible and versatile plant in which a number of key equipment are optimized to process various types of raw material (typical examples are the heat exchange equipment, the aseptic filler, the washing / sorting lines etc.) and to include dedicated machines to process specific raw material. The use of dedicated machines is essential in order to maximize the yield and the quality of the obtained juice. This fact is particularly true in the case of tropical fruits where only dedicated machines for pineapple, passion fruit, acerola, mango, guava, just to mention few examples, can assure the level of quality needed by always more stringent standards market. Some examples are described in the following paragraphs. Multifruit plant for the processing of pomegranate, apples, berries and stone fruits to produce both clear concentrate juice for pomegranate, apples and berries and single strength puree for peaches, apricots, plums. In this case the

FP 2/13 bertuzzi.indd 3

key components of the plant (heat exchange, evaporator, aseptic filler, ultrafiltration etc.) have been optimized for the various raw material and dedicated machines have been added to deshel the pomegranate, to destone the apricots etc. The result is a multifunctional plant that is in operation for 7-9 months allowing a smooth deprecation of the fixed capital investment

been used to maximize the quality of the juice and a sophisticated CIP system in order to allow first response to the demands of the market requiring changes of product.

Multifruit plant for the processing of a wide range of tropical fruits like pineapple, mango, passion fruit, and guava to produce a high quality concentrates and puree. In this case also to the basic plant equipped with all common (but optimized) processing sections a number of dedicated machines are added for the pineapple, passion fruit juicing as well as for the destoning of mango with great efficiency and the chopping of guava.

Multifruit processing plant to produce chilled juice of high quality, pasteurized or not from orange, lemon, mango, pineapple, pomegranate, carrots, apples, berries etc. Again in this case it is a plant that must operate the whole year round changing very rapidly process and producing product of extremely high organolectic characteristics. In this case too dedicated machines have

Multifunctional plant to process carrots, stone fruits and tomato to produce concentrated puree. Again dedicated equipment have been added to make possible to obtain high quality final product while maximizing the yield.

Multifunction line for the production of fruit preparation for yoghurt and bakery. It can operate with particulates and whole fruits assuring the maximum quality.

All these examples of plants have been designed, built and put in operation by Bertuzzi Food Processing S.r.l., an Italian Company that operate in this field since 1936 and that have supplied plants to process fruit and vegetables to produce juice, concentrates, baby food, jam, ready-made drinks etc.

AGRICULTURE - A SECTOR GURANTEED TO GROW If there’s one sector guaranteed to grow in both the short and long term, it’s agriculture.


ith the world population expected to grow by 27 percent to 8.9 billion by 2050 and consumers in developing markets increasingly able to afford more and different foodstuffs, demand for agricultural products is certain to rise. “You can’t open an agricultural publication today without seeing references to population growth and rising living standards,” says Joe Woods, Fluid Power Segment Manager Americas for Trelleborg’s sealing products, who himself farms on a modest scale. The amount of arable land available on the planet is limited, so it must be as productive as possible. A number of trends are resulting in greater productivity . In developed markets one trend is the increasing automation of farm machinery such as combine harvesters. Combine harvesters can now be steered by GPS, and subsystems such as the headers that harvest the crops are increasingly computer controlled. “An operator used to throw a lever to manually raise and lower a header,” says Woods. “Now there’s a button controlling the hydraulic cylinder. For its smooth operation you need lower friction and higher precision, which our seals provide.” Trelleborg is experiencing high growth in the agricultural sector. “Business with original equipment manufacturers is booming,” says Woods. “Commodity prices are up in the U.S., and demand is driving when people are buying new equipment.” Another way to increase land productivity is to prevent damage to the soil by tractors and other machinery. “Compression by tires affects the structure of the soil, affecting its ability to absorb


water and nutrients and therefore affecting yields,” says Emiliana Vesco, Product Manager Agricultural and Forest Tires for Trelleborg. Tests show that compaction causes poor root development and disrupts biological activity in the land. “Our aim is to design and produce tires that respect the structure of the soil and preserve its organic life by minimizing mechanical damage,” says Vesco. Agricultural vehicles are becoming more environmentally-friendly, with stricter emissions standards going into effect in the U.S. and Europe. Their engines run hotter to reduce emissions, which demands components that can handle the higher temperatures. “We now supply high-temperature compounds for engine mounts,” says Chris Billinge, Global Markets Director for Trelleborg’s antivibration mounts. “This allows our customers to run their engines in these hotter environments and still have excellent isolation.” With demand increasing in some markets for vehicles fitted with tracks rather than tires – again to protect the soil – Trelleborg is developing new solu-

tions for suspension systems. “Tracks cause a massive deterioration in ride control and comfort, so the focus is on suspension to allow drivers to spend a long day in the field comfortably,” says Billinge. Sustainable farming remains a focus for Trelleborg. In 2011, Trelle-borg launched its TM Blue tire concept, which reduces the use of natural resources in production, is kinder on the soil while reducing fuel consumption and emissions as well as increasing productivity. “Agriculture is destined to play a leading role in future environmental challenges, since farmers, along with leading manufacturers, increasingly demand innovations that meet sustainable requirements,” says Vesco. According to forecasts, 80 percent of the growth in the agricultural industry through 2020 will occur in the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China). A significant amount of farming in China is still unmechanized, and where machinery is used it is often less productive than in the developed world. In 2011, Trelleborg acquired a facility in Xingtai and became the first manufac-

turer of agricultural tires from the West to have its own production in China. The factory provides proximity to Chinese customers as well as support to European and U.S. customers in the Chinese market. “This is a new horizon that brings us new possibilities and a new challenge,” says Vesco.

Agriculture in South Africa South Africa grows every kind of food crop, filling most of the country’s domestic needs and exporting on top of that, so it is no surprise that demand for tractors is growing, along with associated markets. “In 2011, sales of tractors in South Africa almost doubled over 2010 levels, reaching 7,963 units,” says Hennie Hattingh, Trelleborg Sales Manager for agricultural tires in South Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa. “Trelleborg’s biggest opportunity lies in affiliation with tractor dealers.” Hattingh says South Africa is the most important market in Africa for now, but opportunities are arising in other markets as well. With rising tractor sales come rising tire sales. “In recent years, there has been an increased focus on precision farming, meaning minimizing soil compaction for maximum agronomic yield,” Hattingh says. One farmer who understands this is Piet van Rensburg, a fourth-generation farmer in Bultfontein, in South Africa’s Free State province. The province, considered the breadbasket of the country, produces 70 percent of South Africa’s grain. On his Mooitoekoms Farm, van Rensburg uses Trelleborg TM900 High Power tires on his Case Magnum 340 and Magnum 225 tractors. “I work in very sandy soil,” says van Rensburg. “And the bigger the tire I can have, the less compaction and more traction there is on the soil. I can’t complain about the life-span of the tires either. I am up to 3,000 hours on the Magnum 225. Trelleborg tires make me more productive and increase the fuel efficiency of my vehicles.”


Mooitoekoms Farm › The word “mooitoekoms” in the name of Piet van Rensburg’s farm means “beautiful future” in Afrikaans. › The Free State province is often called South Africa’s breadbasket. › Mooitoekoms Farm’s main crops are maize and sunflowers. › The total area of the farm is 1,400 hectares (3,460 acres). › Mooitoekoms Farm has four tractors: a Case Steiger 550, a Case Magnum 340, a Case Magnum 225 and a Case Puma 180 for spraying.

South African farming › The top 10 farmed commodities in South Africa are sugarcane, maize (corn), milk, wheat, potatoes, grapes, oranges, chicken, sunflower seeds and beef. › Farming in South Africa accounts for eight percent of the country’s exports. › 12 percent of South Africa’s land is under cultivation, amounting to some 15 million hectares (36 million acres). › 96 percent of all tractor brands imported to South Africa have radial tires. › Trelleborg has had a presence in South Africa since 1995. Its offices there act as a hub for Trelleborg business in other African countries.

India – a thriving market With a population of 1.2 billion that is still growing rapidly, India is a critical market for many global companies. Trelleborg has several facilities in India and another one will be inaugurated later this year. This latest addition to the country is a 30,000-square-foot facility in southern India. It will develop, manufacture and supply industrial antivibration systems with a focus on rail and molded components for a variety of industry segments as well as housing a test laboratory for materials and product testing. “Our operations in India will strengthen our relationships with our key customers and help us develop business with others,” says Rajeev Gupta, Regional Sales Manager


for Trelleborg’s antivibration systems. “The plan is to support the strategy of future business growth in the Indian market.” Agriculture is a big part of that market in India. Some 80 percent of the machines used in agriculture in India are tractors. “The large agricultural market of India is one that we will be watching closely and participating in when technology develops and brings into play the need for our products,” says Chris Billinge who is responsible for marketing Trelleborg antivibration systems globally. In India, Trelleborg develops, manufactures and supplies hydraulic and pneumatic sealing systems for the fluid power, automotive and aerospace sectors as well as industrial antivibration systems and molded components for a variety of industry segments. In addition to this, Trelleborg has a center of excellence for engineering and design focusing in marine fender operations.

The tractor factor The name “tractor”, coined around 1903 by Hart and Parr, developers of a two-cylinder gasoline engine, comes from the Latin roots of “traction” and “power”. This sums its capabilities up as a slow moving, high torque vehicle for hauling a trailer or machinery. Before this tractors were already in use, but not by their common name. Originally, there were steam-powered traction engines, frequently operated in tandem pulling a plow back and forth over a field by a wire cable. In the U.S., steam-powered engines were direct-hauling plows due to more favorable soil conditions. Steam-powered tractors were still in use during the 20th century until a reliable internal combustion engine was developed. Gasoline-powered tractors gained popularity in the 1910s when they became smaller and cheaper. In 1917, Henry Ford introduced the Fordson, the first mass produced tractor, and by the 1920s this type of tractor had become the norm, with Ford controlling 77 percent of the U.S. market.

Moving forward: Achieving excellence in maintenance “Although the factory’s maintenance system at present is able to achieve a high level of overall time efficiency, VMC recognizes the value of migrating to a computerized maintenance management system immediately to gain competitive ground. This is to ensure that we achieve the reliability levels being targeted by our group in the next few years,” Mr. Lozada states. “And for this, we are in need of the services of a company with a good track record.” The SKF Client’s Needs Analysis (CNA) provides a holistic solution to the maintenance operations of a company. This service begins with a review and evaluation of the entire operations system; after which, helps determine the appropriate maintenance strategy and plan, including the critical machinery equipment required, and an optimized spares inventory and supply stream.

pany’s operating condition, and is fast to access and maintain, while giving key people and their respective departments the relevant information they need to enable correct decision making. A challenge that VMC currently faces is the monitoring of one of its most expensive and important equipment -- its turbo generators. “These electricity generators must be available during the normal operation of our mills and even when we do our annual maintenance procedures during the shutdown season,” emphasizes Mr. Lozada. With an online monitoring system, VMC can get a clear and accurate picture of the condition of the critical components within the turbo generators, minus the time-consuming and costly manual dismounting and checking of all the machine sub-components.

Future looks good “The future for VMC looks good,” beams Mr. Lozada. The sugar mill in Negros ended the crop year 2012

as the biggest in the Philippines in terms of total annual production of both raw and refined sugar (1 ). “At the end of the day, sugar production is still dependent on the tons of sugar cane milled. Environmental conditions change, and every season is a new season affecting the amount of canes we process into sugar and sugar derivatives. These external factors affect our productivity and are difficult to control. On the other hand, there are factors which also affect productivity and profitability such as our operating and maintenance costs and these we can manage and control. The onus is on us to find the most efficient way to control these.” Mr. Lozada stressed that SKF’s contribution in the areas of maintenance crew training, and the supply of good quality parts and reliable condition monitoring equipment, has helped achieve this. “The Computerized Maintenance Management System services is indeed a very promising endeavor to take with SKF, as it promises to reduce maintenance costs by better identifying and planning our maintenance activity, to enable us in retaining knowledge regarding our maintenance needs for specific equipment, and to provide a continuous ‘health check’ on our equipment’s condition. More importantly, it will help sustain the level of training we require for our people.”

Moreover, given VMC’s need to migrate to a more reliable and fast maintenance monitoring system, the Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) is a tool that SKF recommends for the company. With the thousands of machines and machine parts VMC needs to monitor to keep its productivity high, this program is ideal because it makes use of a single system that gives a total overview of the com-

ulire 2.0, which will be held in Verona from 21 to 23 May 2013, is the largest professional cleaning trade show in Italy and hosts the entire range of related products, including machinery, chemical products, equipment and components for professional cleaning and hygiene. Thirty years of service to professionals make Pulire a leading event in Europe, ranked second for importance and size, and one of the most influential globally. In 2011, it attracted 300 exhibitors, more than 10,000 visitors on over 16,000 square meters of display space, playing host to the largest international groups, industry pacesetters with the most innovative solutions. It involved foreign exhibitors from 21 countries around the world and visitors from 90 countries. At Pulire, professionals in FMCG, HoReCa, hygiene and industry will find the most innovative solutions

PULIRE FP 2-13.indd 3

for any cleaning need. The 2013 edition of Pulire is based on the Pulire 2.0 concept, a new way to view the trade show: dynamic, interactive, oriented toward building effective relationships. Pulire 2.0 is based on two applications to download to smartphones or tablets, one for exhibitors and one for visitors. Every visitor will be associated with a QR code with all related information including product sector, source, general information, so that the exhibitor can create directly on their table the database of visitors to their stand, in compliance with privacy regulations. They can set up their agendas and appointments with a match-making system. Exhibitors will also be able to view visitor statistics in real time and will know when a distributor they are interested in, for example, a distributor from Qatar, has entered the exhibition center. Every product shown can also have a QR code containing the specific information,

to avoid printing catalogues and make it immediately consultable by visitors. The applications will provide information on the trade fair, pavilions and exhibitors. “The 2.0 applied to a trade show signifies an interactive platform of relationships able to gather consensus across uniform segments on a number of topics related to industry or system themes or simply of the market, many months before the event takes place and for an extended time after,” noted Toni D’Adrea, Managing Director of Afidamp Servizi, the company that organizes Pulire. “Exhibitors and visitors are no longer merely users of services but become an active and dynamic part of the system. Pulire 2.0 means creating a virtual space that is accessible to the market long before the physical event takes place which allows for supply and demand to interact in a multidirectional way.”

SIMEI 2013, A RESTYLING FOR ITS FIRST 50 YEARS SIMEI, International Enological and Bottling Equipment Exhibition, will be launching its 25thedition – scheduled from 12 to 16 November at Fiera Milano-Rho – with a restyling for all its communication and promotion materials. Target: telling the most significant elements of this trade show in a contemporary and creative way, while emphasizing its role as international protagonist and leader in wine technologies and bottling


iquid flows generated by technological elements that symbolically create the world and, in the middle, a bottle speaking about future. Technology, innovation, internationality. The new image of Simei 2013 is served. In the year of its 50 years SIMEI ( will indeed have a restyling, i.e. a new look for all its communication and promotion materials, telling the most significant elements of this trade show in a contemporary and creative way, to strongly reaffirm its distinctive and founding features. A communication will be activated which can highlight its leading role in the panorama of the world exhibition events and its positioning as an international leader in wine and bottling technologies. “SIMEI – explains Massimo Paglia-

rin, Creative Director of the Agency Yess! ( who took care of the graphic project for Unione Italiana Vini - is a trade show with a very important history, it is an international leader in its sector. Therefore, the first element, on which attention has been focused, was highlighting this leadership. In order to do this, contemporary graphic elements have been used to tell this message and give an immediate communication of it. The earth globe, the world, which stresses the international relevance of SIMEI, is ideally and symbolically outlined by beverages: water, juices and wine”.

The visual – surely a very strong and high-impact communication – seems ideally divided into one upper and one lower part … Yes, the composition indeed consists of descriptive elements in the lower part, represented by pictures of mechanical elements, such as the button “On”, which refers to technology and mechanics, without highlighting a precise product category, in full respect of the extremely varied offer of items shown at the exhibition. On the other hand, the upper part

SIMEI FP 2/13.indd 3

is more symbolic. In the central position, the bottle, made up of a green and blue neon, - a sort of optical fibre -, is projecting into the future, into innovation. Innovation is connected with machines that are a part of today and, most of all, of tomorrow. The bottle calls to mind that this trade show is a meeting point for the beverage production chain, leaving room to the various typologies of drinks that are represented by this symbolic image.

What about the lettering part? How was it managed? With regard to the stylistic choice, we opted for a font called Nexa that, at the moment, is used worldwide and belongs to the sans-serif family. It is a font having an element linked with the past, but at the same time, bringing innovation. Also the lettering is thus recalling a communication of historical past, a tradition that looks into the future, an innovation that is leader, also because it has deeply roots in the past.

interpack FP 2/13.indd 3

ces and the unparalleled internationality of its exhibitors and visitors alike. The last interpack attracted more than 165,000 trade visitors, 84 per cent of whom said they were involved in decision-making processes in their companies. Registration for interpack 2014 is performed online at www.interpack. com. Companies who took part in interpack 2011 can re-use the data stored last time. The official closing date for registrations for interpack 2014 is 28 February 2013.

Every innovation has its starting point In time for the start of registration, interpack has overhauled its visual identity. Following on from the modernisation of the fair’s brand image and logo in the run-up to interpack 2008, this further revamp is

underlining interpack’s claim to be the world’s most important trade fair for the packaging sector and related processing industries by including the phrase “leading trade fair” in its logo. In its advertising from now on, interpack will be communicating informative messages presented graphically in an eyecatching typographic block. This concept is also being adopted in the new image brochure that potential exhibitors will have received in the last few days in time for the start of registration. In this brochure, interpack is appealing individually to its core target groups with powerful messages and an attractive visual language. The campaign is starting with the claim “Every innovation has its starting point”, which spotlights interpack’s role as the sector’s inspirational mainspring.
