The Seafood Expo North America/Seafood Processing North America event, taking place in Boston on March 6-8th, is the largest exposition of its kind in North America. Buyers and suppliers involved in the seafood industry come from around the world to network with other professionals in the industry, to discuss and explore what is happening throughout the industry, and to learn about new products and processing and packaging equipment.
The Seafood Expo is the ideal arena for us to showcase our equipment and demonstrate how flake ice is superior to other forms of ice. At Howe’s Booth #1464, our experts will be ready to answer questions on the benefits of flake ice and how to use it most effectively. We will have a running 2,000 lb. flake ice machine making fresh crisp ice throughout the show, as well as a large capacity Model 51-RL . This 5 ton unit can produce 10,000 lb. of ice in 24 hours or 420 lb. in 1 hour.
Howe is a leading supplier of flake ice equipment for all sectors of the seafood industry. We offer a wide variety of flake ice machines that are designed for many applications. Shipboard models can produce freshwater or saltwater ice to keep catches fresh and Howe’s ice flakers are common equipment in retail applications such as supermarkets and fish markets. Fishmongers know the benefits of flake ice over other forms of ice. The flat flakes of flake ice provide greater contact area and more cooling capacity Flakes offer retailers more cushioning to prevent food damage, sparkles to enhance appearance, and extends the freshness of seafood.
Exhibiting at the Seafood Expo is one of the events we look forward to each year. It is very enjoyable to connect with old customers and meet new ones and to bring our outstanding products to the seafood industry. In our next blog we will tell you about the highlights of the show and give you a complete wrap up so remember to keep an eye out for that!
