The Food Processing Suppliers Association announced that it has entered into a formal alliance with Messe Düsseldorf GmbH to increase the international reach of FPSA’s Process Expo as part of Interpack’s worldwide products family.

“This partnership will significantly increase Process Expo’s presence in the international market, where Messe Düsseldorf is a leader within the processing and packaging trade show arena,” stated Scott Scriven, chairman of FPSA. “With seven international subsidiaries and 68 foreign representatives worldwide supporting Messe Düsseldorf in 127 countries, Process Expo will have unprecedented access to new markets,” he added.

Messe Düsseldorf will contribute to booth space sales as well as promote attendance to food processors around the globe.

“Messe Düsseldorf is pleased to be joining with FPSA in the formation of this partnership. The exponential growth of Process Expo since the announcement of the move to a biennial show tells us that strategically, this is where we need to be in the North American market. We are now pleased to offer our existing customers a new platform,” said Hans Werner Reinhard, executive vice president of Messe Düsseldorf Group.
