Matthews resumes sponsorship

Matthews is proud to sponsor the FOOD Challenge Awards’ Confectionery category in 2008.

A coding, labelling and automatic-data capture specialist, Matthews is a GS1 Strategic Alliance Partner — and is the only coding and labelling company to hold that status.

Matthews’ strong focus on product research and development, and systems integration, is behind its broad client base, which includes leading companies, such as confectionery manufacturers Cadbury Schweppes and Daryl Lea, plus a variety of other companies in the dairy and beverage sectors.

Through its Identification Systems Group the company has wide-ranging software integration capabilities, allowing it to offer a full complement of skills from selecting appropriate coding and labelling hardware to designing, developing and integrating software into a broad variety of production lines.

The 30-year-old Australian-owned business has national coverage in both sales and support, with plants and offices in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Shepparton, plus in NZ.

With any installation, Matthews looks beyond mere compliance issues to production floor and administration areas to improve productivity, efficiency and streamline reporting.

“An inaugural sponsor, Matthews has again chosen to support the FOOD Magazine Challenge Awards for several reasons, including two very close to our core values: supporting local industry and encouraging innovation,” said Matthews national sales and marketing manager Phil Biggs.
