Adam Equipment, a manufacturer of scales and balances for professionals worldwide, is proud to be a first-time exhibitor at South Africa's annual Nampo Harvest Day, May 12-15, 2015. Visitors to the show can find Adam in Agrinet Hall, stands 13-14, where the company will display a selection of scales and balances for the agricultural and farming industry.

Scales and balances are valuable tools in all aspects of the food cycle – during harvest, processing, packaging, service, and sales. In research and development, weighing equipment is critical for maintaining sample integrity. When food products enter the processing phase, scales, balances and moisture analyzers facilitate quality control. They can help to ensure freshness and quality of the product during packaging, and aid in determining proper expiration dates. Weighing equipment is invaluable for food service and sales, as it can measure produce at farm stands, weigh lunch meat at a delicatessen, or verify quantities of ingredients mixed into a batch of cookie dough at a bakery.

Adam representatives will be available at the booth to demonstrate equipment and answer questions about the company's full range of scales and balances, according to Maryna Olivier, regional sales manager at Adam Equipment South Africa.

"We are looking forward to showing scales to the farming and agriculture community at Nampo," Ms. Olivier said. "Scales play a key role in the entire food chain, from farming through consumption, and Adam Equipment offers the best value in food scales," she added.

The event is held in Bothaville's Nampo Park during South Africa's harvest season and attracts 80,000 visitors. Organised by Grain SA, the annual agricultural show features 670 exhibitors from 13 countries, offering the latest information about the agriculture industry. Visitors to the show can watch demonstrations of agricultural machinery, learn about related services, and view farming equipment and other agricultural products on display.

Harvest Day started in 1967 to promote agriculture in the region, known as South Africa's grain belt, and to help local farmers and producers achieve better crop yields. This year's show features an expanded exhibition area that is expected to attract even more visitors, while a recent redesign to the parking area will help facilitate easier access to the event.
