APAC Food Safety Conference- Food Manufacturing Tour
Pat Torres (Mayi Harvest & NAAKPA representative) and Paul Saeki (KPBDM ) participated in the Food Manufacturing Tour arranged by the APAC Food Safety Conference on Tuesday, August 20,2019. The tour started with a site visit to Lion Diary and Drinks Smithfield Plant where Lion produces a range of refreshing non-alcoholic beverages from ambient juice options, water and icy summer treats. This includes fresh juices, crushing approximately 75,000 tonnes of fruit from orchards around the country, distributing packaged products across Australia.
The second site visit was to Toohey’s Brewery at Lidcombe, Sydney’s largest brewery, producing six million bottles of beer a day and a keg rackline which can produce 1000 kegs per hour. The sheer scale of production is impressive including processes used to change over and clean bottling lines between different beer products.
The last site visit was to CSIRO’s sensory, flavour and consumer science group’s laboratories at North Ryde. This included CSIRO’s Food Safety group laboratories.
