Marlen to Exhibit at PROCESS EXPO 2019

September 12, 2019

Marlen announced their plans to exhibit at PROCESS EXPO 2019, a venue that brings together the world’s most successful food and beverage processors and leaders in the field of academia.

This year’s PROCESS EXPO event is being held at McCormick Place in Chicago, October 8-11. During the show, the Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) will host five live production lines, including a sliced pepperoni production/packaging line in which Marlen’s latest servo-driven twin-piston pump, OptiServ 340, will be utilized to feed the line in action.

Marlen’s president, Bob Campbell, stated, “It is an honor to be part of this massive effort at PROCESS EXPO which highlights innovative processing and packaging technologies. We look forward to showcasing our latest vacuum stuffing and pumping solutions known for higher density stuffing, resulting in improved yield.”

Several other products in Marlen’s portfolio will also be on display in their booth (S-2049) at the show, including a DuraKut™ 6000 dicer with horizontal slicing attachment for 3D cuts, an Afogrill Select for searing and bar marking, a micro spiral oven for continuous cooking, water-cook-chill technology for sous vide, a 24-PAK rotary volumetric filler and a variety of other food processing solutions.

Another key highlight in Marlen’s booth will be live continuous cooking demonstrations throughout the show to promote the company’s micro spiral oven which is used for uniform cooking. Marlen’s executive chef will be serving up freshly cooked samples, including bacon, BBQ spareribs and Malaysian grilled chicken satay.

Brian Vancrum, vice president of sales at Marlen, adds, “Marlen is a diamond sponsor of PROCESS EXPO 2019 and takes great pride in supporting the efforts of FPSA. We look forward to hosting many customers and colleagues in the industry to discover and share what is new in food processing.”

PROCESS EXPO is owned and organized by the Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA), a global trade association serving suppliers in the food and beverage industries.
