BMG’s Food & Beverage Expo

Fourth Quarter 2019 News & events

BMG’s Food & Beverage Expo, which was held recently at the BMG World distribution and engineering facility, has been voted a great success. “Highlights of the event included presentations from guest speaker, Linda Jackson, director of Food Focus, who stressed the importance of knowing the latest standards for equipment in the food and beverage sector, to ensure food safety,” says group product and sales manager, Mark Barbour. “It is critical that equipment suppliers to the industry understand the complexity of food production environments and have a thorough understanding of the key processes necessary to meet stringent food safety requirements by avoiding contamination risks.

“This two-day expo was the ideal forum for the BMG team to collaborate with industry leaders and to network with customers. We also focused on recent changes in legislation, which include the new regulation R638 for ‘Regulations governing general hygiene requirements for food premises, the transport of food and related matters.”

The event concentrated on the importance of investing in the correct equipment to prevent food safety hazards; what the risks of food safety are; and what food safety auditors look at when they audit equipment. On display were BMG systems and components that assist both manufacturers and end-users to achieve compliance with new specifications and deliver on food safety and environmental and energy-efficient initiatives.

BMG exhibited power transmission components, light materials handling and belting products, gearboxes, motors and variable speed drives, seals and bearings, valves, tools and equipment, as well as fasteners, lubricants and maintenance chemicals.

This show not only highlighted the company’s extensive range of engineering components and expertise, but also focused on how BMG integrates its vast product range and extensive technical services into tangible operational efficiencies in the food and beverage sector. The company’s solutions for the food and beverage sector extend from processing, where raw ingredients are transformed, to packaging, where products are enclosed and protected for safe distribution.

In addition to biannual industrial expos held at BMG World, the company will follow this food and beverage expo with other specialist industry events, including water and wastewater, power generation and mining.
