1 Expanding Exports with Food Processing Technology & Packaging Systems Thomas Dunn Flexpacknology LLC Thomas Dunn Flexpacknology LLC July, 2012 Central Philippine University Food Technology: Gearing Up for Exports Food Technology: Gearing Up for Exports

2 What is Success? WHAT : Increased exports WHY : Increased national capital Jobs Wealth Economic demand How long : Long term Sustainability Economic Social Environmental

3 HOW: Food Technology! What is that?

4 First: Food Science is The study of foods Makeup Chemical Physical Biological/ Microbial Decline Chemical Physical Biological/ Microbial Processing Chemical Physical Biological/ Microbial

5 Food technology is the application of the following to Food Science For the Safe Use of Food! Selection Preservation Processing Packaging Distribution Source: Institute of Food technologists

6 BeginningMiddleEnd END:Distribution MIDDLE:Preservation Processing Packaging BEGINNING: Selection Gearing up for Exports

7 Begin with the End in Mind Coveys Successful Habit #2… Literally: The distribution system Product Destination Product Destination Product Destination Product Destination Product Itinerary to Destination Gives Specification to: Preservation Processing Packaging Gives Specification to: Preservation Processing Packaging Gives direction for: Selection Gives direction for: Selection

8 Distribution: Destination

9 From Distribution comes Direction For Selection US, Western Europe, Japan The demand for Consumer packaged goods (CPGs) is well established. Cultural pressures influence priorities – Convenience – Healthy Life Style – Perpetual snacking – Mix up Global cuisine Ready for imports Western Pacific The growth of Middle Class drives demand for CPGs. Area is the source of exotic fare. Opportunity: Global exports Internal/Regional growth Economic dynamics* Slow growth Fast growth

10 * Economic opportunity: Developing Countries # Top 52% with >$8/day Middle 39% with $2-8/day Bottom 9% with <$2/day 2.7 billion people in developing countries: Concerned about safe & healthy food (children) Live in remote areas, Shop traditional stores Buy for one day 2.7 billion people in developing countries: Concerned about safe & healthy food (children) Live in remote areas, Shop traditional stores Buy for one day World Population # TetraPak(2012) ref. Prahalad(2004)

11 From Selection comes Direction For others Selection Preservation Distribution Processing Packaging Value Addition Opportunity

12 Processed in the Philippines Selection Preservation /Processing Packaging Tropical Fruits Healthy Snack Thermally Stabilized

13 (Value-added) Product of the Philippines

14 Processing Research Center for Advanced Processing and Packaging Studies (CAPPs): Institute of Food Technologists – Food Technology Industrial Achievement Award Processing/Packaging Processing Systems (2009 and 2010) USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) – $25Million study to strengthen food safety Studying human noro-viruses across the food supply chain Design effective control measures Reduce the number of virus-caused foodborne illnesses

15 Advances in Processing Thermal Processing – Microwave Assisted Thermal Sterilization Continuous Flow (North Carolina State University)* Prepackaged (Washington State University)* – Pressure Assisted thermal Sterilization Ohio State University National Center for Food Science and Technology Non-Thermal Processing – High Pressure Processing (Commercial) – Pulsed Electric Field (Commercial) *IFT: Food Technology Industrial Achievement Award

16 Fresh Prepared Food Minimally processed food – Healthy life styles – Convenience – Sustainable sourcing and product life cycle

17 Packaging & Sanitation Enable Fresh Prepared Food Sanitation – Good manufacturing practices – HACCP – Global Standards Packaging – Contain – Protect & Preserve – Distribute – Inform/Sell Taken to new levels of excellence

18 Case Study: I Stand up pouches with fitments Solutions in search of a problem Available for decades GualapackCheerPack

19 Same food: new opportunity Convenience for time-poor mothers of toddlers TraditionalNo glass chardsLess mess Process - ChallengingReclosable optimized process

20 Same Food: Distinctive Package JarCupPouch Material Glass jar/metal cap Foil laminate lid/ barrier plastic cup Foil laminate/ plastic fitment & cap ReclosableYesAdditional capYES ProcessingThermalThermal/AsepticHot fill/Thermal DispensingAssisted Self Distinctive Package: Enhanced Experience

21 Remaining Possibilities Expand high acid-hot fill/low acid-thermal – Continuous Flow Microwave – High Pressure Processing – Pulsed Electric Field Develop aseptic form/fill/seal Tropical fruit purees Low price point/traditional distribution

22 Case Study: II Global Fresh Foods (US pat No. 8,187,653 )

23 Smart Packaging: Multi-tasking ComponentFunction GFF Service ModuleSum of these parts/temperature control PalletBasic transport unit/Cube shipping container ProductStored in rigid totes SAF-D Sealed Enclosure Flexible controlled atmosphere packaging GFF Blue BoxConvert residual O 2 to H 2 O Smart Packaging: Team Player

24 Impressive Results 30+ days shipping/storage – 14 Day ocean transport – 14 day retail shelf life Green Supply Chain – CO 2 emissions/lb: 99% – Recycled content corrugated – Reusable packaging components – Natural gases/no preservatives

25 In Summary Packaging is a critical part of food technology Food technology involves other disciplines Packaging must work with these other parts There are always new jobs for packaging to do! Preservation & processing drive packaging. Begin with Food Science End with food safety
