Forms fresh burgers of superior quality with various textures and shapes

  • Superior product quality
  • High flexibility in textures and shapes
  • Optimum product consistency
  • Small footprint


The PremiumFormer is a unique solution for forming high quality fresh burgers. The flexible system offers the possibility to produce highly consistent hamburgers with various textures and shapes.

Maximum flexibility

The PremiumFormer creates different fiber orientations for burgers using a finishing module that gives the burger its final texture immediately before filling the forming molds. These molds are interchangeable which allows different shapes to be created easily. Changeovers between different types of burgers take just a few minutes and thanks to its small footprint, the PremiumFormer will fit seamlessly into any production facility.

Superior product quality

The PremiumFormer uses ultra-low pressure forming, so that the structure and texture of the meat mass is retained. Burgers that are produced on the PremiumFormer will always have the required shape and are of consistent weight. Even after cooking, the product quality is preserved.

Award winning innovation

In August 2020, the PremiumFormer received the CFIA Innovation Award for Equipment and Processes. This not only recognizes its unique, state-of-the-art qualities, it also highlights the Marel culture of innovation and excellence.

The criteria used to select the award recipient includes the innovative nature of the product or service, the customer benefits it offers and the need it meets in the market. The jury commented on the PremiumFormer:
