ACMA Tea Days - A world in a teacup


Between 13 and 17 May ACMA, a Coesia company, hosted “Tea Days” at its headquarters, an event dedicated to the world of tea and its protagonists. ACMA
offers solutions and technologies for primary and secondary packaging, at the same time boasting a vast array of knowledge that encompasses the entire supply chain, from cultivation through to the distribution and consumption of the product. The event revolved around three concepts: Knowledge, Sustainability and Innovation.
Knowledge : a 360° understanding of the sector 
ACMA, which in 2019 celebrates 95 years in the business, is a company that specialises in the design, construction and marketing of machines and systems for the packaging of consumer packaged goods, with significant experience in the tea sector. In this context, ACMA’s know - how not only encompasses the specific area of packaging technologies but extends right along the supply chain, taking in the various phases connected with the production and consumption of the beverage: from the cultivation of the tea plant to the process of drying and producing the product, and through to subsequent marketing and consumption phase, which differs according to the reference market. During the event, the world of tea and the time - honoured culture with which it is associated were represented within the Knowledge section.
In a dedicated area, guests were able to enjoy an exhibition of innumerable types of tea and objects connected with the consumption of this beverage in various countries, from Japan to England, and from China and India to Morocco. A highly sensory experience based on sounds and smells as well as aesthetics.
Sustainability : a supply chain for green solutions
Meanwhile, the materials used in the packaging of tea were the focal point of the section dedicated to sustainability, which involved specialist suppliers. More specifically, the companies that took part in the event included Terranova and Glatfelter, both involved in the manufacturing and processing of filter papers,
Interfil and Zwirnerei, which specialise in the production of tea bag threads, Polypack , which produces tags and envelopes, and Cartotecnica Naldi, whose core business is the manufacturing of cardboard boxes. Finally, Rockwell Automation, which supplies systems for controlling and optimising the consumption of machines. 
This event underlined the important influence that ACMA has had in the development and integration of technology over the last 95 years.
Technological innovation that is always in step with the times and the needs of the market, the company said.
