Akova Group was founded by the Džafić family and has grown from a single fast-food restaurant in Sarajevo to one of the leading food companies in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the surrounding region.
Ovako, part of Akova Group, produces a range of meat products for both domestic and international markets.
With a growing demand for its sliced meat products, the company needed to find a way to increase production capacity.
Upgrading the slicing line
Ovako’s slicing line processes up to 5 tons of meat per day, including chicken breast, ham and salami. The diameters of the products range from 90 to 110 mm, with a length of up to one meter.
The company invested in 2022 in the DIVIDER line from TREIF, part of Marel, to cover its sliced meat production process from slicing to packing.
The DIVIDER slicer combines optimum use of space with a level of performance expected from a much larger machine. The unique, patented system means that the machine can slice with a high degree of precision.
