These international trade shows track the dynamic growth in the food processing industry and promote innovative solutions to sustainable and responsible food handling for a growing global population.The first Process Expo, run by Messe Frankfurt, will be held from 12 to 15 October 2021 in Mc Cormick Place in Chicago.
