About 278 exhibitors from 28 countries will showcase packaging technologies and participate in ProPak Philippines, the first of its kind packaging exhibition that could provide answer to the country’s small manufacturers on food, drink, and pharmaceutical in the country.

Trade and Industry Secretary Ramon M. Lopez said the exhibit is in response to the rapidly expanding processing and packaging industries, and the government initiatives to encourage the growth of local industries.

The three-day show on Jan. 24-26 at the World Trade Center is organized by UBM and supported by the DTI.ProPak is the biggest international processing and packaging trade event in Asia.

The packaging exhibitors will showcase packaging solutions for the manufacturing sector, food processing, quality control, machinery and automation, bottling, brewing, waste management, food safety, and many more.

In MSME development, the key is to make entrepreneurs smarter by exposing them to all new developments via networks like ProPak to solve the problem of minimum order quantity (MOQ) that has been really hampering the MSMEs and prompting them to upgrade their packaging requirements. The MSMEs really want to improve, but, when you seek the MOQ, it will be hindered,” Lopez added. (BCM)
