Obeikan MDF exhibits for the first time at Expoalimentaria Perú

  • The premium packaging company is taking part for the first time as an exhibitor at the leading trade show for the food industry in Latin America to strengthen relations with its clients in the region
  • Obeikan MDF will be presenting in Peru its wide range of packaging solutions for the export of fruit and vegetables to overseas markets

The Spanish MDF packaging company, Obeikan MDF, will be attending the forthcoming edition ofExpoalimentaria Perú as an exhibitor. The biggest event for the food industry in Latin America, which takes place on 25-27 September in the Peruvian capital of Lima, puts an emphasis on the packaging sector in its different exhibition spaces. At this year’s edition, the packaging company Obeikan MDF is taking part for the first time with its own 24 square metrestand, E61-E62, in the Jockey Exhibition Centre.

The packaging containers and display units, which will be exhibited over the three days of the event, have been specially selected to complement the production output of the Andean region, with a view to the main products marketed by Peru and in line with the needs of suppliers in both Peru and other nearby countries. “We’ll be exhibiting a selection of our special packaging for grapes, avocados, asparagus and citrus fruit. In addition, we’ll be showing examples of the new line of display units that we’ve designed to showcase produce at the point-of-sale” said the General Manager of Obeikan MDF, Salvador Martínez.

In order for trade visitors to get a first-hand look at the entire assembly process that Obeikan uses for its packaging, the Valencia-based company will transfer one of its state-of-the-art packing machines to the trade show. “It’s important that trade professionals, marketers and exporters get the chance to have a look at the self-assembly system we use at Obeikan MDF. We can’t think of a better way of promoting our product than to demonstrate the process in situ, so people can corroborate the resistance of our material at first hand, which makes it the perfect support for their long-distance exports,” concludes Martínez.

In addition to this assurance, Obeikan MDF offers numerous options for customizing its packaging. This differentiating factor allows its customers to achieve a prominent position on shelving lines worldwide. China, Brazil, India, Japan, South Korea, Canada and the United States are just some of the markets in which packaging by Obeikan MDF has a standout presence. They are joined by major European retail chains such as Edeka, Tesco, Marks & Spencer, Aldi and Leclerc, who appreciate the company’s commitment to sustainability, design and innovation.

Packaging with triple benefits

Obeikan MDF’s proposition is packaging that offers the greatest resistance in long-distance transportation. It is also a sustainable alternative, made from recycled and recyclable material, which offers a powerful marketing tool for both producers – to differentiate their brand – and for retailers, when positioning the product on shelving lines.

Presence at international events

Obeikan MDF chooses its international visits with precision with the aim of resolving the needs of its customers. The reason the company has chosen the Peruvian trade show as its international event this year is in response to “the importance of Peru as an export market and the growth it has experienced in the last few years”, explains Martínez. Obeikan MDF’s portfolio of clients includes Chilean companies that operate in Peru, so Obeikan MDF is very familiar with the market demands in this area. With its visit to Peru, Obeikan MDF is embarking on the final stretch of events this year, with an agenda that will take the company on to the FPJ Live Congress in London and the international Fruit Attraction trade show in Madrid.
