Hall 3, stand #A3-4 Gulfood Manufacturing, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 7-9 November 2016
Dubai, UAE, 17 August, 2016 – With more equipment on show than ever before, tna is returning to the biggest food and beverage industry event in the Middle East and Africa to showcase its ever-expanding range of turnkey solutions, including some of the most advanced food processing and packaging technologies. On display, amongst many others, will be a twin configuration of the company’s flagship tna robag® packaging system to demonstrate how this high performance turnkey solution can help food manufacturers increase production volumes to meet the region’s growing appetite for packaged foods. For a truly interactive experience, the tna innovation station will also allow visitors to access a 3D view of tna’s complete food processing and packaging line, from start to finish.
“Gulfood Manufacturing has always been an important show for us,” comments tna co-founder and director Nadia Taylor. “We’ve been active in the region for over 10 years and opened our first office here back in 2007. Since then, both our team and our portfolio have grown massively to be able to cater to all the opportunities this dynamic market has on offer.”
“Food consumption in the GCC countries is expected to grow by 3.5 per cent annually over the next few years due to the region’s ongoing rise in population,” adds Mukul Shukla, general manager – tna Middle East. “With that kind of growth also come some unique challenges, and a lot of food manufacturers are looking for a partner that can help them improve production efficiencies to meet this demand, widen their product portfolio to cater for new tastes or improve traceability to adhere to stricter food quality and safety standards.
“With the recent additions of FOODesign, Florigo and Unique Solutions to the tna group, we now offer a complete one-stop shop for food production equipment and solutions across a wide variety of applications. Whether they’re looking to speed up their snack packaging line, expand their potato speciality product range or boost the output of their French fry business, our cutting edge technology covers all their processing and packaging needs. Plus, as a global player with local presence and expertise, we’re well-placed to serve both companies wanting to enter the market as well as local business who are looking to expand.”

One of tna’s many solutions that can help food manufacturers stay ahead is the tna intelli-weigh® 0328 omega multi-head twin scale. Together with the company’s flagship tna robag high speed vertical form fill and seal (VFFS) packaging system, the tna intelli-weigh 0328 sets new performance standards by delivering speeds of up to 400 bags per minute.
