Sustainability and new solutions at Propak Africa

Propak Africa is recognised as Africa’s ultimate packaging, food processing, plastics, printing and labelling exhibition. From 12 to 15 March, over 600 exhibitors across three massive halls and outdoor exhibit areas at Nasrec Expo Centre gave visitors an opportunity to see the latest, state of the art equipment and machinery, auxiliary products and services.

Engineering, equipment and lots of excitement

Visitors have engaged with exhibitors on their products and services. They have also found out more about skills development programmes within the packaging and associated manufacturing industries.

Each day of the show had a particular theme. Day one was new products, day two sustainability, day three skills development and day four, features the local is lekker theme, focusing on everything South African.

Show organiser, Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery has created a series of video clips featuring some of the excitement of Propak Africa 2019. This video of day two is all about sustainability.
