ALLPACK Exhibition Jakarta 2017 - A Seak Peak

If you are living in or around Indonesia and have any interest at all in food, beverage, or pharma processing and packaging industries, then ALLPACK is definitely worth a visit for you. Our Indonesian office PT. PanAsia Tech exhibited once again this year and the turn out was great.


They had an amazing list of exhibitors which included Buehler, Krones, Tetra Pack, AZO, and many other Europe/USA companies, to well reputed Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and even locally manufactured machines. What was truly amazing is the range of machinery that all the exhibitors had on display. Check out our short 'sneak peak' video into set up day at the exhibition to get a glimpse of what was in store for visitors.


One of our main focuses this year is to offer our customised processing and packaging solutions for small to medium sized industries. Namely for snack foods and cosmetics. Also we were only the look out for trade partners to work with on our expansion in Sub-Saharan Africa. While Indonesia is still growing and there is a massive demand for machines here, the arena is very similar to that in Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania, etc. by seeing what is happening here we can get some insight into what we can expect for SS Africa in the coming 5-10 years.



Stay tuned for more videos of the AllPack Jakarta 2017 Exhibition and feel free to contact us for more information about the projects on display.

Fully Automatic 20 Litre PET Bowing Machine for Oil (600 BPH)

This is a machine developed especially for our friends in Emerging Markets who are dealing in edible oils. As you know the cost of portable containers,  especially PET and HDPE is forever increasing. The largest common size in PET is 5L with higher volumes going into HDPE. But the demand for 20L containers is growing but cost of production of these bottles is high.

But not any more. We do not need to rely on the same on manual blowing machine solutions for 20 litre bottles. We now have a cost effective FULLY AUTOMATIC stretch blow moulding machine to suit the need at 6000 bottles per hour! Check out this video for details and send us a message to receive a full technical proposal.

Also make sure to check out our filling machine and auto boxing machine for the same 20L bottle. No stress, no mess, no fuss. From factory floor to the supermarket sheves, we got you covered.

Join us for a brief conversation with Mr. Vikesh Roopchand at Propak west Africa expo in Lagos. We discuss the expansion of their coverage in East and West Africa with a targeted launch of the West African edition to be printed in Ghana by March 2018. 

You cannot ignore the growth of of the manufacturing industry in this region and we are excited to see publications like this fuelling the innovation with in depth articles and case studies about Graphics, Advertising, Printing, and Packaging.



Empowerment Through Manufacturing

Join the Fresh Food revolution. With minimal investment you can now process and package your own creations, using locally procured raw materials, under hygienic conditions, into attractively branded packaging of your choice. Start a brand, build a business, and F@*K globalised mass production of agro products which you can grow in your own country or backyard!! Potatoes, peanuts, cashew, okra, plantains, cassava, or anything you want to bake, fry, roast, and flavour. Even sauces and pastes. The choice is yours.

This is my effort to offer EMPOWERMENT to hard working people in developing markets and home industrialists. Cut out the middle man and take control. It makes no sense that our produce is being shipped abroad to be re-processed and packaged only to be imported back into our countries so we can pay premium prices for them. Do your part to forward this information to friends and family in your area who you can see are trying to grow their own food or beverage product and brand. Help them take control and reach further.

32nd Trade Expo Indonesia - Sneak Peak

Welcome to the 32nd Trade Expo of Indonesia. This year the show is being held in BSD, a sub district of Jakarta. It is a few hours out of the city centre, but BSD is a modern city on its own which is quite spectacular. The venue is also state of the art and large enough to accommodate the growth this country is expecting.

Overall I was expecting the show to be much larger, but it is going to be some time before the export oriented businesses get back on their feet here, after taking a beating from China over the last 15 years. The furniture sector is promising with more competitive prices now and definitely more innovative designs. But there was hardly enough content to call the market vibrant.

A main feature of the show however is the FMCG section as Indonesia has so many foods and beverages to offer for export. And the large players are already very successful in other first world and developing countries. The marketing directors were accessible and even hosted a couple of forums. This was very useful, and proactive. It is refreshing to walk into an expo and actually meet the business owners and decision makers.

It is noteworthy that the Indonesian Ministry of Trade had a very strong presence and even invited dignitaries from various countries to attend and host seminars. The message is clear, Indonesia is open for business! From West Africa alone I met with strong delegations from Nigeria, Togo, Cameroon, and more.

Plantain/Banana Chips - The Most Affordable Solution to Manufacture in Africa

From years of travelling around Africa and meeting business people at work and at Trade Show's, I am most enlightened to connect with small business owners who have taken their 'home-industries' and grown them in to large successful corporations, and more importantly, nationally and internationally recognised FMCG brands. One area where i have seen a steady gap for years though in West Africa is the snack food industry.  (click below to watch video of all machines to make chips)


Since the early 80's we have had fried plantain chips and kelewele available on the road side from street vendors, freshly made. And more recently businesses have sprouted up that are frying and packaging chips at home and packaging in plain plastic bags to sell to motorists on the crowded streets. More recently, some of them even implementing modern packaging so the goods can be sold in international supermarkets. I was very happy to see this and ventured out to meet some of these budding entrepreneurs face to face.

While it was amazing to see these young business people with fantastic ideas actually realising their vision, it was a bit saddening for me to notice the shortfalls in their strategy. In most cases, if not all, the young business people had spotted this gap for African Snack Foods while living or studying abroad. They could see how their countries products would fit perfectly on the shelf at Whole Foods or Safeway, sitting right next to a bag of Lays potato ships. But the packaging??

Flavouring Machine
De Oiling Machine

So like any fired up investor with a plan, they immediately get to designing a new brand. In fact they spend so much on that process without even considering the industrial applications of their idea. By the time they have designed and sourced packaging, flavouring, and raw materials, they hardly have enough left of to purchase the required processing and packaging machines. So we end up with the same short life, medium quality product, just now in a splendid packaging. And because the process is the same, the cost is the same too just more because of the added packaging. Is this a correct representation of what our countries have to offer?




At PAT we are focused on offering and implementing cost effective manufacturing solutions to our clients in emerging markets. Rather than placing the cart before the horse, we focus on getting the right equipment to delivery a superior finished product. Our simple machinery will insure that the finished product is properly treated and packaged to insure freshness and extended shelf life.  Such as this de-oiling machine, which offers a process that very few if any small manufacturers would use. But can you just imagine how this will improve the taste of your chips?

We work with local partners to offer training and production practices that are expectable by international food an beverage regulators. And furthermore our team of over 3 qualified packaging designers will help to design our brands at absolutely zero added cost.

Check out the YouTube video at the top to see exactly how this line works with details of all the related equipment. Make sure to check out our other videos on YouTube and subscribe to see more educational videos about setting up businesses and small industries.

BBC - The City that Won't Stop Growing

Many of you may not have even heard of Nigeria, but it is Africa's giant market. If this beast can be tamed and government funded fairly distributed to patriotic leaders, Nigeria could lead the way to a modernised continent. Are you feeling as optimistic? Find out what Alastair Leithead of BBC has to say about it.


The city that won't stop growing - Nigeria
Blurb:
"The UN says 14 million. The Lagos State government thinks it’s nearer 21 million, as rural Nigerians are drawn by the hope of a better life to one of Africa’s few mega-cities.
By 2050 Nigeria will have twice the population it has today, more than half will live in cities, and about 60% of them will be under 25.
----
Like everywhere else in Africa trying to break out of poverty, Nigeria hopes fast population growth will bring it a “demographic dividend” – a young workforce that can drive economic growth. If they can all be put to work."

Facial Cream Packaging - How It's Made (like L'oreal)





Check out this unique solution we set up for filling and capping facial creams for a well known client. Firstly we set the line up to send bottles back to the feeding area because of the factory layout. We also incorporated a manual insertion point for the inner seal cap, which is then automatically pressed in place. This saves a substantial cost and allowed us to reduce the size of our filling machine. Our volumetric filler for this project has 4 filling nozzles, 2 cap placing heads, and 2 heads for capping. Overall 100% satisfaction guaranteed for our client.
