Whereas, the presentation from Daniel Nahrhold from the well known company that specializes in producing automatic plants for wafers, Hebenstreit was quite visual as he showed pictures of numerous wafers and snacks from across the world and also elaborated on the technologies that his company offered for these products.
On asking him about the benefits of attending the event, he said, “The main advantage of this event was getting in touch with participants from other sectors of the food industry, thus introducing our products to them. In this way, I was able to make quite a number of new business contacts that may possibly lead to future cooperations. Another advantage of this symposium was that it served as the central reference and meeting point for our existing clientele from this area in order to carry out project discussions, also in cooperation with other German suppliers on site.”
