Habasit to exhibit at record IPPE event amid booming poultry industry

Already the world's largest annual poultry, meat and feed industry event, International Production & Processing Expo will be expanding the show floor to all three halls of the Georgia World Congress Center, in Atlanta, Georgia, on February 12-14th, 2019.

Showing general resilience, the US economy exhibits lower unemployment, wage gains, and consumer optimism that have driven steady demand for protein, which enjoyed record consumption in 2018, the poultry sector in particular strutting into 2019 upon the longest consecutive years of profitability of its history. Fair financial weather has inspired companies to invest in upgrades to production systems and equipment, believing future demand to maintain its appetite.

To capitalize on 30,000 investment-ready IPPE attendees, more than 1200 exhibitors will spread the record event floor with equipment innovations designed for limit-pushing processing efficiency. On many of these machines, Habasit has already hatched its performance and sanitation-centric conveyor belts.

Habasit greets poultry industry challenges—such as the outbreak of poultry induced disease and stringent government regulations—with need-specific product engineering that facilitates sanitation procedures and performance longevity. Highlighting premium materials and designs, Habasit will display a variety of problem-solving belting products, such as the ultra-hygienic Habasit Cleandrive™, Habasit Saniclip quick-release module, plastic modular belts of various pitches, and plastic chain.
