Expo 2020 encourages Kabab Erbil's expansion plans

Hydrosol adds more production capacity in Germany Growth continues at Hamburg's Stern-Wywiol Gruppe. With an increase of 12 percent, the family-owned company made a record 444 million euro in revenues last year. Its Hydrosol subsidiary was a big part of it. Hydrosol, which specializes in custom stabilising and texturing systems, can look back on a very successful year. With a view to the future, the company is now expanding its production capacity. Managing Director Dr. Matthias Moser: “Our production plant is one of the most modern of its kind in Europe, and our capacity as it stands is 30,000 tonnes of ingredients a year. Our customers in over 50 countries expect the best, and in order to provide it to them with the highest level of innovation, flexibility and service, we are now investing in a second facility located in close proximity to the existing one. The groundbreaking will take place soon, and production will start during the coming year.â€? As an independent, family-owned business Hydrosol has for many years followed a long-term growth strategy, with sustained investments at home and abroad. In addition to its production facilities, the Technology Centre is an example of this. This research and development centre has extensive test facilities and pilot plant for dairy products, deli foods, meat and fish products and other food categories, and is being continually expanded. “These foresighted investments, coupled with the flexibility and reliability of an owneroperated company and the creative expertise of our staff, are central to our success,â€? comments Dr. Moser. +\GURVRO*PE+ &R.*KHDGTXDUWHUHGLQ$KUHQVEXUJ QHDU+DPEXUJ*HUPDQ\LVDIDVWJURZLQJLQWHUQDWLRQDO VXSSOLHURIIRRGVWDELOLVHUVZLWKVXEVLGLDULHVDURXQGWKH ZRUOG,WVVSHFLDOLVWVGHYHORSDQGSURGXFHWDLORUPDGH VWDELOLVHUV\VWHPVIRUGDLU\SURGXFWVLFHFUHDPDQGGHVVHUWV GHOLFDWHVVHQDQGUHDG\PHDOVDVZHOODVPHDWVDXVDJH DQGĂ€VKSURGXFWV:LWKLWVLQWHUQDWLRQDOQHWZRUNRI 15VXEVLGLDULHVDQGQXPHURXVTXDOLĂ€HGIRUHLJQ UHSUHVHQWDWLYHVWKHFRPSDQ\LVUHSUHVHQWHGLQWKH ZRUOG VNH\PDUNHWV$VDPHPEHURIWKHLQGHSHQGHQW RZQHURSHUDWHG6WHUQ:\ZLRO*UXSSHZLWKDWRWDORI HOHYHQVLVWHUFRPSDQLHV+\GURVROFDQPDNHXVHRI PDQ\V\QHUJLHV FOOD BUSINESS GULF & MIDDLE EAST

A positive economic outlook and influx of tourists are expected in UAE, in the context of EXPO 2020, naturally boosting the demand for consumer foodservice options. The restaurant sector achieved a remarkable growth in the UAE and is expected to rise further due to the continuous increase in population, a large number of tourists from around the world, as well as the rising trend for dining out. Kabab Erbil, an authentic Iraqi fine dining restaurant was introduced in 2003 by Mr. Azad Omar Qaradaghi, has achieved incredible success in short span of time with two outlets operating in Al Muteena Street and Al Rigga Street. Serving more than 500 customers every day, the restaurant is famous for its traditional Iraqi cuisine and aesthetic ambience, which leaves the customer with a unique experience. “With the increasing appetite for out-of-home dining and growing discretionary wealth in the region, there is plenty of room for restaurant brands to expand their business; I have found that Dubai has a serious food culture and that is what we are tapping into; therefore we are planning to expand our operations in Dubai� said Mr Mariwan Qaradaghi, owner and director of Kabab Erbil Iraqi restaurant. According to Euromonitor International, about 19,000 extra F&B outlets are expected in the UAE by 2019. With more than 6,021 outlets in the Emirates, dining out is becoming a favorite activity for many Dubai residents, who spend an average of Dh841 on restaurant meals per month, the highest in the Middle East market. Dubai being the cultural melting pot, the food lovers are always on a culinary quest for the next interesting cuisine that will provide pleasure to their taste buds. Despite being a strong liking for Middle Eastern cuisine, Dubai is showing dynamic growth for restaurants offering multicultural cuisines. “The Diners are embracing the different cuisines and they are willing to explore new places which offer the cultural cuisine coupled with the perfect ambience; considering this favorable trend, we are offering traditional Iraqi dishes including our signature dish Kabab, followed by our famous Masgouf to our customers from different nationalities and JULY-SEPTEMBER 2016

IFFA confirmed as the world's leading trade fair for the sector IFFA - The No. 1 for the meat industry - closed its doors after six successful days. Over 63,000 trade visitors from 143 countries attended the world's leading trade fair for the sector in Frankfurt am Main from 7 to 12 May, an increase of around five percent over the previous event in 2013 (60,509 visitors from 144 countries) whereby special mention must be made of the increased degree of internationality, which rose to a new record level of around 66 percent. Particularly well represented on the visitor side were the Russian Federation, Spain, Poland and Italy. IFFA 2016 also set a new record on the exhibitor side with a total of 1,027 companies taking part (2013: 966). The exhibitors, who came from 51 different countries, presented innovations for the entire meatprocessing chain. On 110,000 square metres of exhibition space (gross), as in 2013, they presented new products and technologies for slaughtering, dismembering, processing, packaging and sales. “Under the motto 'Meet the Best!', the entire sector came together here in Frankfurt to discover the latest innovations and tomorrow's trends. IFFA is and will remain the world's leading trade fair for the meat industry. This year, it was distinguished by growth in all respects. An extraordinarily high level of internationality, the presence of all market leaders and highly innovative products and technologies speak for themselves”, said Wolfgang Marzin, President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Messe Frankfurt. The focus of IFFA is on innovative and creative solutions for the safe, efficient and economic production of meat and meat products. For manufacturers of machinery and plant, IFFA is the leading international trade fair and offers the biggest expert network - a special incentive for companies to make their innovations ready for launching on the occasion of the fair. Klaus Schröter, Chairman of the Meat Processing Machines Group of the Federation of German Machine and Plant Manufacturers (Verband Deutscher Maschinen und Anlagenbau - VDMA), summarised the situation for his membership saying, “The German Machine Manufacturing Industry is very pleased with the results of this year's IFFA. Numerous new contacts were made and many contracts concluded, several of them for large-scale projects. Increasing meat consumption worldwide is the driving force behind this. And this was also reflected by the high standard of visitors, most of them top international decision makers. Our foreign customers are enthusiastic about the new technologies and the broad product portfolio, which is more diverse than at any other event in the world and makes IFFA unparalleled.” IFFA is also a must for the butchers' trade, one of the biggest groups of visitors. Heinz-Werner Suess, President of the German Butchers' Association (Deutscher Fleischer-Verband - DFV) was delighted with the results of the fair: “Overall, IFFA was an excellent opportunity for us and our partners to show our strengths. After the six-day fair, our opinion remains unchanged: it was an extremely potent presentation for both visitors and representatives of the German butchers' trade at this, the world's leading trade fair for the meat-processing business.”

Balls® brings a fresh take on Italian street food to Dubai As the temperature cools later this year, the Dubai food scene can expect to heat up with the launch of Balls®, an exciting new Italian street food experience. A new concept from the founder and developer of 800PIZZA® in the UAE, Balls® clearly has the ingredients to make its mark. Mixing delicious and affordable Italian street food, a pinch of American nostalgia and a distinctively different identity and you got yourself the makings of new brand sensation. Founder Alessandro D'Ubaldo is enthusiastic about his new creation, saying “the concept is so engaging, refreshing and unique.” D'Ubaldo is still keeping the menu offering under wraps but he promises it will be worth the wait and the hype. The brand's marketing strategy is equally refreshing, with a very direct, honest and at times irreverent approach, captured in the tagline “Balls® you can eat” The flagship of the Balls® operation will be the restored vintage 1956 Airstream trailer, brought to Dubai from the United States of America. With the trailer restoration being documented on its social media accounts, Balls® is providing a glimpse of its future in the Dubai street food scene. Balls® plans to ambitiously expand the concept across and beyond the Gulf region. “The brand has already been registered in the GCC, UK and US and our franchise plan is in place to enable a swift rollout shortly after launch” Alessandro says, “our franchise system is designed for low entry cost, unskilled operation and versatile application from food courts counters to kiosks and of course, the majestic Airstream, ensuring that this unique and exciting concept can be embraced by any caliber investor, anywhere”. As the launch preparations progress, more will become clear about the genuinely unique food offerings of Balls®, but if the care and JULY-SEPTEMBER 2016

Easysnacking™ breaks the ice for frozen yoghurt The award-winning EasySnacking™ pack from RPC Superfos has played a crucial role in the success of a new range of frozen yogurt from Luxlait, Luxembourg's leading dairy company. Available in three flavours - peach and passion fruit, strawberry, and caramel with salted butter and pecan nuts - the frozen yogurt has a creamy and light texture to provide the treat of ice cream but with fewer calories. For each flavour, there is a matching coulis: caramel, strawberry, or passionfruit. Luxlait cites the sleek injection moulded PP EasySnacking™ container, which includes a stylish spoon in the lid and makes eating on-thego an indulgent experience, as one of the reasons that sales have surpassed expectations.

manager, explains why EasySnacking™ was the perfect choice: “We chose the EasySnacking™ pot because we were intrigued by the general look and feel of it. It conveys something modern and young, and even has a dash of ergonomic design because it is so soft and smooth. Further, we appreciate the integral, organically-formed spoon, which is quite solid and therefore perfect for scooping frozen yogurt.” Another major benefit, according to Luxlait, are the transparent lids in striking colours - one for each flavour - which afford end-users a glimpse of the beautiful pattern from the coulis on top of the frozen yoghurt. “Sales have surpassed our expectations, and part of our success lies in the packaging,” continues Jérôme Lejeune. “We have been working with RPC Superfos for more than 15 years now, and know the company as a serious packaging supplier who regularly visits us and presents new packaging ideas to us. The idea of using the EasySnacking™ pack was spot on.”

2015 was a year to celebrate for food ingredients manufacturer Palsgaard, due both to healthy financial results and the achievement, well ahead of time, of a substantial part of the company's journey toward a zero carbon footprint around the globe. Palsgaard's 2015 CSR Report, released recently, highlights the latest accomplishment in the company's sustainability drive: During the year, Palsgaard's Danishbased - and largest - plant completed a six-year journey to become CO2-neutral — delivering the first part of Palsgaard's goal to declare a zero carbon footprint globally by 2020. “Given the energy-intensive production processes in our industry, we believe it is a major achievement to arrive at this target in Denmark well ahead of schedule,” says CEO Jakob Thoisen. “As a company, we have set ourselves ambitious goals and we're determined to deliver on them. By combining CO2 neutrality, sustainable palm oil and other sustainability measures, we can deliver truly sustainable emulsifier systems that are in an increased demand by our customers and certified to be environmentally friendly”. While impressive, CO2-neutrality was only one of several achievements on the sustainability front for the company. Derivative products decreased per kilogram of finished product, for example, water consumption was reduced, and Palsgaard's Malaysian production plant achieved Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) certification. As with 2014, two main factors continued to contribute to a slight increase in overall energy consumption and raw materials consumption: The implementation phase of the Malaysian plant and increased production levels throughout the company. Palsgaard's has a long history of CSR. Founded over 100 years ago, when the company invented the modern commercial food emulsifier Palsgaard has worked to find ways to protect the community and preserve natural resources. The 2015 CSR report describes how Palsgaard uses its decades of food application expertise to help its customers sustainably meet consumer needs and regulatory priorities through more efficient, higher-quality production and healthier products.

Participation in the sweets & snacks expo generates significant results In the period between 24th - 26th May, seven Brazilian confectionary companies (Docile, EmbarĂŠ, Harald, Peccin, Riclan, Simas and Simonetto) had the opportunity to present and negotiate their line of products to the international market. During the Sweets & Snacks Expo 2016, 166 meetings with purchasing companies, clients and potential clients took place, 86 of which were with new contacts. In terms of values, the business generated during the fair resulted in US$ 810,000, which is 179% more than was achieved in the previous edition, last year. Regarding future business, with the contacts developed during the event, the estimate is that it will reach a value of US$ 5.4 million, which will represent an increase of 112% in relation to the 2015 edition of the fair. The foreign companies, which conducted

business with the Brazilian confectionary representative companies, came from countries such as: The United States, Canada, South Africa, Panama and Mexico. The Brazilian stand at the Sweets and Snacks Expo 2016, which exhibited the diverse and unique array of Brazilian sweets, toppings and chocolates, was made possible by the Brasil Sweets & Snacks Project, a result of the partnership between The Brazilian Cacao, Chocolates, Peanuts, Candies and Byproducts Industry Association (ABICAB) and The Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil). This and other such events, held in strategic markets for Brazilian companies, has contributed to the awareness of national products in foreign markets and, consequently, the acquisition of more clients internationally. In parallel to the participation in the Sweets & Snacks Expo, Brazilian companies also participated in a trade mission in the United States in order to promote national brands in the North-American market, which culminated with a networking event held at the General Consulate of Brazil in Chicago, bringing together entrepreneurs and international opinion leaders.

Although the percentage of Brazilian global exports from the sector still hasn't reached double digits, the potential growth, in both mature economies as well as emerging economies, is substantial and, little by little, this scenario will continue to adjust with continuous growth, which will help the products become ever more accepted in the international market. While the Brazilian confectionary market is valued at around US$ 12.8 billion, the total global market is valued at US$ 196.5 billion, and grows on average 4% per year. However, there is a considerable slice of foreign consumption that can be converted. Add to this the fact that many countries yearn to discover typical Brazilian products and flavors. To meet this expectation, Brazilian companies need to position their products in a way that attracts international buyers. The fine candies manufacturer Berbau, cites two ways that they

heeseMaker BL410 will make white cheese affordable for cost-conscious consumers that look for a creamy and versatile white cheese. Consumers worship the white feta-style cheese for its creamy texture and fresh salty taste. It has a central place in many food applications, from salads to savoury dishes and sweet bakery items. To make a firm and still creamy cost-effective white cheese alternative, use CheeseMaker BL410 in combination with an analogue or recombination process. Easy processing The recombination process is based on powdered ingredients, which will ensure a constant supply of ingredients with a stable quality. In contrast to the traditional feta cheese production, the recombination process does not depend on the supply of fresh milk, but uses ingredients with a long shelf life. No excess whey that needs to be discharged and no seasonal variation in milk supply. The recombination process is fast and cost-effective. “Replacing powdered milk proteins with CheeseMaker BL410 will give you additional and considerable cost savings”, Carsten Kirkegaard Jensen, director technical sales at

STRETCH THE IDEA OF WHITE CHEESE KMC explains. “You can use the CheeseMaker BL410 starch solution and still get a product with good organoleptic characteristics, such as a firm appearance and creamy mouthfeel. If you make a feta cheese product by using ultrafiltration (UF), you can save money too by adding the starch and some additional water to the ultra-filtered milk to increase the yield”, he adds. Stretch the protein The protein content in a traditionally made feta cheese varies between 12% and 18% depending on the desired consistency and fat content. “We have worked with different degrees of substitution and have standard recipes available with protein content around 7.5% and as low as 2.5%”, Carsten Kirkegaard Jensen says, “and we are pleased to help our JULY-SEPTEMBER 2016

Soft and creamy white cheese The typical characteristics of a feta-style cheese are its white appearance and neutral taste, which is easily obtained as CheeseMaker BL410 is based on potato starch only. CheeseMaker BL410 will give you the soft and creamy texture that your cost-conscious consumers are looking for and furthermore a slight degree of syneresis that will enable the imitation cheese to loosen easily from its container or packaging.

BUSCH AT IFFA 2016:

ENERGY-EFFICIENT VACUUM SUPPLY FOR FOOD PACKAGING

E

nergy-efficient vacuum supply for packaging of foodstuffs was the central focus at the Busch trade fair stand at IFFA 2016. The vacuum technology specialist showed interested trade fair visitors where energy-saving potential in vacuum packaging exists and how this potential can be easily used. For this purpose, the vacuum supply must be analysed together with the entire packaging process and all parameters must be optimally suited to fit one another. Busch offers this service in the form of a special “VacuumAudit� The goal of this audit is to achieve optimum energy efficiency for the packager. During this VacuumAudit, the current

FOOD BUSINESS GULF & MIDDLE EAST

state is evaluated and suggested solutions are developed for the customer. VACUUM SUPPLY The vacuum pump is the core of a packaging machine's vacuum supply. Busch unveiled the newly developed R 5 RD vacuum pump for the first time at the IFFA trade show. The R 5 RD requires 20% less motor power than the previous models. The new vacuum pump is based on rotary vane technology that has been proven through decades of use and was further optimized to make these energy savings possible. For example, if a thermoforming packaging machine is equipped with the new R 5 RD 0360 A (fig. 1), the annual electricity costs saved during two-shift operation at ten cycles per minute with a chamber volume of 20 litres are EUR 850 (price of electricity = 0.18 euros/kWh). REDUCING THERMAL LOAD As a general rule, vacuum pumps generate waste heat that can negatively affect production JULY-SEPTEMBER 2016


PA C K A G I N G

and processing rooms or their air-conditioning systems. The waste heat can not only be drastically reduced. It can also be utilized. An oil/water heat exchanger on an R 5 rotary vane vacuum pump can significantly reduce waste heat and thus reduce the energy costs for air conditioning. Furthermore, the heat exchanger can be used to generate warm water, which can in turn be used as warm water during operation. R 5 rotary vane vacuum pumps can be retrofitted with heat exchangers. If four packaging machines operate in one packaging room and each is fitted with an R 5 rotary vane vacuum pump with 5.5 kW of motor power, the energy required for cooling is approximately 6.0 kW. If the vacuum pumps are operated with a heat exchanger, the energy requirement for cooling is reduced to approximately 1.5 kW. During an operating time of 4,500 hours/year and an assumed electricity price of 0.18 euros/kWh, this results in annual energy cost savings of approximately EUR 5,000. The use of warm water is not taken into account in this example. CENTRAL VACUUM SUPPLY Any company that packages foodstuffs on several thermoforming packaging machines, tray sealers or chamber machines should consider using a centralized vacuum supply. Busch is the largest manufacturer in the world of these kinds of centralized vacuum systems (fig. 2) and therefore has the most experience.

The R 5 RD 0360 A is the first size of new, energy-efficient rotary vane vacuum pumps from Busch, which were unveiled at the IFFA 2016. (Fig.1) JULY-SEPTEMBER 2016

Comparison of energy costs for central and local vacuum supply. (Fig.3) With centralization, energy cost savings of 50% and more can generally be expected. This is possible because fewer vacuum pumps are required for this than for a decentralized vacuum supply. Furthermore, performance control can be precisely adjusted to fit the requirements of overall operations. Normally, not all packaging machines run at peak load, so all of the vacuum pumps are not always in operation. Also, centralized vacuum systems offer maximum reliability and safety as all systemically relevant components have a redundant design. If a vacuum pump fails or needs maintenance work, full vacuum power remains intact. Busch central vacuum systems can be equipped with various vacuum pumps. In addition to oil-lubricated R 5 rotary vane vacuum pumps, dry Mink claw vacuum pumps or COBRA screw vacuum pumps can also be used as components. The investment costs can be reduced during purchasing by including already existing vacuum pumps in the system installation. Figure 3 demonstrates one practical example. In the process of centralizing the vacuum supply, one manufacturer of meat products realized energy savings of EUR 151,000 per year.

eadquartered in the fertile San Joaquin County, Morada Nut is owned and operated by the Foppiano family, whose farming traditions began during the California Gold Rush in 1849. Owner Henry J. “Skip” Foppiano III looks back on a deep farming history. Skip's dedication and respect for his family's farming traditions grew from generations past, beginning with his great grandparents Giovanni and Caterina Foppiano that moved from Italy to California in 1849. His grandfather planted one of the first cherry orchards in the region. Growing up with a farming culture, Skip was inspired to carry on his family's traditions, bringing the same passion to farming as his father and grandfather before him. “Morada Nut is a real family business and Skip wants to ensure that the quality product is expressed in your box as well. That lends a lot of pride in the product we are processing,” explains Scott Brown, Production Manager at Morada Nut. Morada Nut is located on one of the family-owned walnut orchards and it's one of the region's premier growers and distributors of walnuts, with a state-of-the-art walnut inshell plant with bleaching and scrubbing capabilities. The company handles different premium varieties such as Chandler, Howard, Tulare, and Hartley. Morada Nut has plans to

increase production significantly over the coming years. “It's all about the premium quality walnut product that we are able to grow in our own local region. We are very fortunate to benefit from a Mediterranean climate with warm, dry summers, mild winters, and delta breezes that make for an ideal walnut growing region. Providing superior customer service and the highest quality product to our top tier customer base is our mission at Morada Nut,” says Scott. The Foppianos are still very much involved in the day-to-day management at Morada Nut. Skip's extensive knowledge of farming and production continues to guide the design and technological improvements of the impressive facilities. Innovation and creativity have played an important role in Morada Nut's success. The company's vision to integrate research and state-of-the-art technology has greatly increased customer and grower satisfaction. “We are able to satisfy the most demanding customers, requiring strict quality specs and only the highest quality walnuts to service their consumers. This has become a trade mark for Morada Nut,” explains Scott. Scott continues: “We know that laser sorting and optical sorting technologies are the way to increase efficiency and deliver the high quality product that our customers JULY-SEPTEMBER 2016

demand. We had to accommodate for our projected growth, expand into necessary markets and develop our customer base.” Morada Nut is a firm believer that it is only as strong as its partners. “We turned to TOMRA because when looking at the challenges ahead, it soon became clear that TOMRA was going to meet our high requirements, and able to achieve the quality and the high throughput in a timely manner. Their years of expertise led to us developing the best sorting solution for our needs,” clarifies Scott.

“A SORTER IS THE BOTTLE NECK OF YOUR BUSINESS, IT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT PIECE OF EQUIPMENT. YOU BETTER GET IT RIGHT.” Scott Brown, Production Manager at Morada Nut “After elaborate testing at TOMRA's brandnew facility in West Sacramento, California, we bought 3 TOMRA Nimbus sorters of which 2 equipped with the state-of-the-art BSI technology, all 3 sorters in cascade setup, maximising our throughput and efficiency and ensuring a final product clean of foreign material and other defects. “TOMRA's Sacramento office has become a central hub for the walnut industry.

of different occasions, really providing us with a network of support. We could come by at any time we wanted, ask specific questions regarding the start-up, the installation and the capabilities of the systems. “We did many demos in their beautiful facility and were convinced that the combination of the BSI and laser technology on a single machine was a revolutionary step in the walnut kernel sorting industry. Utilising both on a single platform was going to allow us a very accurate single sort on the machine! During the trials we were also able to bring a very good group of operator level employees that were allowed time to learn the sorting machine and work hand in hand with the technicians so they can perform at an optimal level. We are really happy with the results.” “We felt that the TOMRA team were experts in the walnut industry, but we also felt that they were innovative, pro-active and pushing the technology and software forward. Their sorting equipment ensures a gentle product handling as well. On top of the necessary speed, urgency and services provided, this made them the ideal partner. TOMRA's solid commitment to being at the cutting-edge of innovation is what we were seeking and it supported our company expansion,” says Scott. Quality control and food safety measures are of utmost importance at Morada Nut. “Walnuts are sorted through an optical sorter, analysing color and defect

This emphasis on customer satisfaction separates us from many competitors; we are prepared to go at any length necessary. Using TOMRA's sorting equipment allows us to deliver a premium product which meets the need of the customer.”

“PRIORITY IS QUALITY NOT QUANTITY. WE UNDERSTAND AND CONSTANTLY ANALYSE CONSUMER PREFERENCES AND BUYING HABITS.

Chocolate features important benefits due to its origin, naturally produced from the fruit of the cocoa tree called cocoa pod, which grows mainly in regions near the equator where the weather conditions are ideal. Each cocoa pod contains about 40 beans that are fermented and dried by farmers, to be later processed into cocoa mass (cocoa liquor), raw material for the production of dark, milk and white chocolate couvertures. Frequent consumption of dark chocolate that
