SNAXPO 2019 Opens Its Gates on March 31
SNAXPO brings together suppliers, producers, and innovators from the entire snack supply chain. This year, the event is due to take place between March 31 and April 2 in Orlando, Florida.
The tradeshow is expected to be a showcase of innovation across every aspect of the market, putting on display some of the most efficient machinery, newest processing solutions, and ingredients, as well as the latest innovations in packaging.
What’s more, through a full-scale education program, SNAXPO will tackle all the latest topics that are of interest for snack professionals. For example, on April 1 attendees can tune in to hear PepsiCo’s Senior Director, Global Environmental Policy Andrew Aulisi talk about “Packaging for a Sustainable Future.” On the same day, Market Trends and Insights’s Jared Koerten will share some insights on “Global Snack Industry Trends”.
Furthermore, this year’s event will feature a SNAC Tank pitch competition lead by Shark Tank investor Barbara Corcoran, which will offer start-up brands the opportunity to pitch their snack products and models to a panel of judges. The winner will receive a USD20,000 cash prize.
In anticipation of the tradeshow, the SNAXEXPO organizers will also host Pre-Conference Sanitary Workshop on March 31 which will address the issues of hygiene and safety in the snack industry.
