Australian food processing and packaging solutions supplier tna will exhibit at ProPak Asia for the sixth time this year, bringing its Robag 3ci rotary VFFS solution to the show.

Asia is a key market for tna’s product range due to its huge growth potential, said Zaw Htoo Aung, general manager at tna Asia.

“Following the recent acquisitions of FOODesign, Florigo and NID, tna solutions now offer food manufacturers an even wider portfolio of food production equipment for a range of applications including snacks, confectionery, French fries and fresh and frozen products.

“It is great to have the opportunity to showcase this at a premier event such as ProPak Asia,” he said.

According to Zaw Htoo Aung, the Asian food industry is undergoing rapid change, which presents opportunities for tna.

“There are so many new product launches on the market that it is becoming increasingly challenging for manufacturers to keep up with the latest trends. As a single source supplier, we are well-positioned to deliver local food manufacturers forward-thinking solutions that can provide them with the flexibility they need to quickly change their production setup,” he said.

The Robag 3ci rotary VFFS packaging system will feature on tna’s stand, billed as a compact, easy-to-clean turnkey solution designed to package a wide range of products at top speeds from a single tube with triple rotary jaw action.
