Global food processing and packaging solutions provider, tna, is launching an all-new virtual platform; tna Connects.

The company said the new platform will provide the food manufacturing community insight, innovation and inspiration. “From sharing expert-led solutions and expertise, to gaining a better understanding of the challenges facing today’s food manufacturers, tna connects will bring a host of live virtual events directly to manufacturers the world over,” it said.

The platform launches with a series of four virtual roundtables on topics which include conveying, packaging, processing and seasoning from 9-12 November. The discussions will supplement the product innovation information and tna’s live sessions at Pack Expo Connects, offering a greater level of detail on the growing concerns facing food manufacturers today.

Specialists from tna, alongside senior industry leaders from leading snack brands, including Richmond Baking, Campbell’s Snacks and World Food Products, among others will guide the conversation and share examples from real-life challenges, installment stories and solutions.

We’re continually looking for ways to innovate and add real value to our customers and prospects. The new online platform is a fantastic way for fellow professionals to connect and expand their knowledge – wherever they are in the world,” comments Alf Taylor, managing director & chief executive officer at tna. “With sudden fluctuations in product demand throughout the pandemic and changing consumer habits, the food industry has experienced considerable challenges in recent months. We want to create a community through which we can discuss challenges and share key learnings, as well as information about the latest technologies and innovations.
