Last Two weeks ago already, I visited the ProPak conference. I hoped to find food packaging – bottles, glass jars, etc and get contacts for other things.
Contrary to what I thought, which was limited to one end of the spectrum – the packaging – there was more foundational stuff from further up the line – production and the equipment to start up packaging lines.
There were a number of companies who had machines for producing packaging, like bottle-blowing machines.
There were machines that were specifically for filling,
and then you had those for sealing – from regular capping to foil seals.
There were even some specialist machines, like a Chin-Chin cutting one.
To be honest, it expanded my vision in that ‘Oh my Lord, I could one day decide to make my own packaging, from scratch…’
Though I didn’t get what I went there for, I made some useful connections and most importantly, ‘enlarged’ my vision. So,…well worth it.
