The foundation for quality
But the RevoCrumb wasn't the only machine involved in improving product quality and consistency. Getting an all-round, even wet coating is key to creating high-quality convenience products. To ensure consistency right from the start, Plukon used Marel's semi-automatic Active Mixer to prepare their batter. This user-friendly machine ensures a highly consistent, lump-free batter, which is then fed into Marel's Active Batter Applicator. "With the Active Batter Applicator, the products are transferred onto a bed of batter rather than a belt. This means we get an all-round layer of wet coating we just couldn't get before. There are no belt marks, and we end up with a better quality product," says Eric Verspeek.
Innovation and collaboration
Working with Marel gave Plukon a chance to get ahead of the competition. "We can always rely on the knowledge and experience of Marel to get ahead," Eric Verspeek says. "Their expertise goes much deeper than just the technical side; it covers extensive knowledge of food technology and different end products. Marel's team of technologists really works with us to get our products as good as they can possibly be."
