We are exhibiting at the Metcash Food Expo 2024


2nd July 2024

Wedderburn is excited to participate in the Metcash Food Expo at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre this year, running from Sunday 16 July to Tuesday 18 July 2023. It gathers food retailers from around Australia to showcase the latest innovations in retail products and technology. 

Since 1896, Wedderburn has been offering quality solutions to Australian business.

Wedderburn proudly provides Metcash retailers with Weighing Scales, Labelling Equipment, Packaging Equipment and Food Equipment. We have 19 locations throughout Australia, so we can look after your equipment no matter where you're located.

Our equipment is designed to increase productivity and decrease operational costs. We offer everything from Food Equipment and smart Weighing Scales to Labels and Packaging Consumables.  Visit us at booth 292-297 where will will be showcasing the following solutions:

Introducing the SM5500X Touch Screen Weigh Labellers, designed to add a smart dimension to any food retail operation in Australia. The NMI approved, 10” colour touch screen for operator efficiency is also equipped with a 7" colour customer side display for superior advertising and in-store messages. The SM5500X series is a stylish intelligent weigh labeller that can be connected to e-Labels with High-Touch for efficient product selection without keying in a product look up (PLU) and seamless price updates. This series is both PEAL (Plain English Allergen Labelling) and CoOL (Country of Origin Labelling) compliant.

Are you ready for Plain English Allergen Labelling (PEAL)?

In February 2021 the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code was amended to introduce new requirements for the labelling of allergens in food. The new legislation is called PEAL. PEAL requires that allergens are printed in a specified format and location on food labels, as well as using simple, plain English terms. Businesses must comply with PEAL by February 2024.

Are you printing ingredients on labels? You may need to transition to PEAL compliant labels.

Speak to one of our team members for more information on PEAL compliant equipment and labels. 

The RGW560II is a new concept in packaging machines. The flexible banding label showcases the product while still offering plenty of space for product information. The banding label eliminates the need for multiple labels, resulting in a secure package that looks great on the shelf. The banding solution is ideal for ready meals like sushi, sandwiches and salads and bakery items such as cookies and cakes.

  • Electronic Shelf Labels (ESL) InfoTags

The next generation Electronic Shelf Label from DIGI is here. Available in a range new sizes with a longer battery life, 2-colour housing options and vivid 3-colour display. Electronic shelf labels make price updates simpler, faster and error-free. Increase your margins by saving on operational costs. Standard and low temperature tags available to ensure suitability for your entire store - from fresh produce to the freezer aisle. 

  • All-In-One Bulk Weighing Solution

We're excited to introduce DIGI's new tare-free solution for bulk weighing. If you are selling pantry staples such as spices, or nuts and dried fruit by weight, this is the ideal solution to improve your customer experience and reduce packaging waste. For a seamless shopping experience, customers can view the weight and price in real-time as they dispense product into their container. Price and product data is then automatically sent to the printer console, eliminating the need to search for the correct product look up (PLU).  The tare-free shopping experience makes it easier than ever for customers to bring-their-own-container (BYOC), helping to reduce packaging waste. There's even a solution for selling liquids by weight - ideal for shampoos or laundry liquids. 

Combining functionality, operator safety and stylish design, the Wedderburn Semi-Automatic Food Slicer is ready for business. Performing on consistency and quality slicing with its 266 mm diameter blade, this slicer has been engineered for heavy work loads and harsh environments. All our slicers incorporate the latest safety features and allow fast, hygienic cleaning thanks to the easy access designs. 

The WFT52BCA9 Manual Tray Sealer is designed to meet needs of small to medium sized retailers who require a quality finished, sealed product. This solution is ideal for retailers interested in making their own ready meals. For those looking for a semi-automatic solution, we offer a complete range of tray sealers to cover all budgets and applications.
