We Move Forward
2015 is a year that embodies the great potential of the future. It is the year of EXPO, the greatest food and nutrition international event ever. Cefla, through its Plant Solutions and Shopfitting Solutions business areas, is an important player.
Cefla Plant Solutions
Cefla Plant Solutions was called upon to design and construct the general Expo building system covering a total area of 32,071 sq. m.: restaurants, bathrooms, trade areas, visitor services, participant services, warehouses and technical rooms.
Cefla Shopfitting Solutions
Cefla Shopfitting Solutions and Zenith Shop Design, a group company specialising in custom furniture, together with Coop, built the pioneering Supermarket of the Future, part of the FUTURE FOOD DISTRICT theme area. The project was developed based on an idea by Carlo Ratti, Director of the Senseable City Lab at MIT, Boston, with the collaboration of Coop, an Official Food Distribution Partner.
Cefla is also present inside the “CIBUSèITALIA” Pavillion.
The “CIBUSèITALIA” Pavilion will be the physical location where the Italian food industry will be promoted and showcased. Within it, Cefla created a multimedia totem to illustrate through the use of the ‘food’ and ‘energy’ keywords the concept: “Cefla for AGRIFOOD INDUSTRY“. Renewable energy produced by cogeneration plants, fuelled by food products and built by Cefla Plant Solutions, is used to produce food, which is sold within efficient outlets furnished by Cefla Shopfitting Solutions in a complete production process cycle.
Highlighting the circularity of the manufacturing processes, Cefla offers food producers a series of renewable source systems which by exploiting waste allow the generation of electric power and heat. Specifically, the cogeneration process demonstrated at Expo consists of anaerobic digestion of bio-gas, by-products of the industries that produce meat, preserves and pulps.
