ESA savoury snacks production course

Module Two of ESA’s intensive snacks production course, covering potato chips & savoury snacks from formed products to end-of-line, will take place in Malaga, Spain on 8, 9, 10 October 2018.

Attendees will learn in detail about industry best practice and the latest practical applications of new technology for the production of potato crisps/chips, extruded, pellet, sheeted and baked snacks, including flavour development and application, weighing, bagging, quality monitoring and control, packaging and packing. The course also includes a half-day practical snack flavour workshop.

The course offers an excellent opportunity for those people involved in savoury snack manufacture to meet experts in their field, to discuss their current problems, and to find creative solutions which will enhance their plant operations. In particular, the course will benefit plant managers, operations personnel, research & development personnel, plant engineers and quality control technicians; personnel wishing to better understand their production processes; suppliers researching the needs and production methods of their customers.

To keep the course as interactive as possible places are strictly limited, and with a 30% off early bird rate (available only until 31 July 2018) you are advised to book now to be sure of a place.
