ASSOCIATION INSIGHTS
The backbone of food
production
Andy Drennan,
Process Expo aims to provide lessons in manufacturing
solutions for an ever-changing industry in 2023.
by Andy Drennan | Food Processing Suppliers Association
I
t's still about a year away and yet I'm already getting excited
as we develop the Food for Thought educational program
for the Food Processing Suppliers Association's (FPSA)
Process Expo, taking place October 23-25, 2023, in Chicago.
For readers who have never put together a trade show,
a lot of planning goes into setting up everything, including a
good educational program for an event like this. Specifically,
at this stage show management has inquired with dozens of
industry insiders to identify critical topics of interest for food
manufacturers. You might call it a " wish list " of content that
we put into our call for speakers for next year's show.
Alternate forms of production, opportunities for
automation, reducing a plant's carbon footprint, clean labels,
water use efficiencies, allergen control and labor-saving
improvements that manufacturers can make to ensure getting
product out the door in the most efficient way are just some
of the topics for which we are fielding proposals. These
proposals come from industry, academia and a variety of
other expert sources.
While some proposals apply to the entire food and
beverage industry, others focus directly on specific industry
segments such as dairy, beverage, meat, bakery, prepared
foods and pet foods, as well as other less traditional segments
that are experiencing tremendous growth such as alternative
proteins, cultured meats and cannabis edibles. When your
show spans the entire horizontal spectrum of food and
beverage processing and packaging, you need content that
speaks to these customers.

But the list of topics doesn't end there. We expect to also
include sessions on prevention of microplastics in food,
natural refrigerants, predictive maintenance, data collection
and connectivity, process optimization, product recalls, smart
factories and total cost of ownership. In short, the purpose
of the Process Expo educational program is to provide the
theoretical backbone of food production in 2023 and for
years to come, supplementing the practical manufacturing
solutions industry professionals will find in the exhibits on the
show floor.
A RANGE OF EXPERTISE
Reading through the submissions we typically receive can
give someone a bad inferiority complex if you haven't studied
food science or engineering, but I choose to look at it the
other way. It's actually pretty comforting to know that this
industry boasts the type of expertise that can address these
important topics in ways that help us to grow and continue
safely feeding a world of 8 billion people.
These proposals not only capture the diversity of solutions
available to food manufacturers at Process Expo, but they
also serve as a resource for these same professionals in
attendance to better understand the opportunities for more
efficient production, new products, line extensions and
improvements in technology. Perhaps this is one reason why
we make the educational program as accessible as possible
for professionals attending the show. Our theater is located
on the show floor and admission to these sessions is free of
