TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Robotics automation products or automation machines driven by the nation's robots competed in the Mexican market, with a high level of interest among enthusiasts at the ExpoPack Exhibition in Guadalajara City, Mexico, June 11-13, 2019.
Products of particular interest to local food and beverage entrepreneurs comprised linear liquid filling and wide hygiene conveyers that are made to order, according to written information from the Indonesian Embassy in Mexico City on Saturday.
Three Indonesian firms -- PT. The Packaging Integra Center (PIC), PT Prima Makmur Rotokemindo (PMR), and Charta Global (a subsidiary of Asia Pulp & Paper / APP) -- participated in the annual international exhibition on innovation in the largest processing and packaging sector in Latin America.
It is PT. PIC's second time at ExpoPack 2019 after taking part in a similar exhibition in Mexico City last year.
PIC has several clients in Mexico and is finalizing business contracts with companies in Tijuana.
In the meantime, PT. PMR, with a daily plastic packaging production capacity of 1.5 million meters, took part in this exhibition, with the aim of finding partners, especially producers of cheese or frozen pizza wherein PMR is able to produce packaging for both products.
Companies that already have domestic customers packing instant noodles, sweets, snacks, coffee, biscuits, and paper products have established business with the largest instant noodle company in the United States, Maruchan, whose products dominate the Mexican market.
The APP, which first participated in ExpoPack, carries the concept of paper-based packaging products. Supplier of APP paper, Proveedora Papelera Kino, also presented some environment-friendly products, such as the Biodegradable Bio-Natura Cups biodegradable container, that have been marketed.
"I am proud that Indonesian businessmen have dared to explore alternative markets in Latin America. I believe our products of good quality are capable of competing with similar ones from other countries in the region," Ambassador Cheppy emphasized.
ExpoPack brings together industry players in the fields of packaging and processing various variants of the manufacturing industry, such as food and beverages, cosmetics, chemicals, automotives, container manufacturing, electronics, pharmaceuticals, candy, bread, graphic arts, and textiles.
ExpoPack 2019 is targeting to attract 16 thousand potential buyers, especially from Latin America, the United States, and Canada. Some 700 company stands showcased products with the latest technology that are environment-friendly.
