Nestled within the idyllic L√ľneburger Heath area, Germany, lies a company with international operations: Valenzi has been processing mushrooms and forest fruits to produce preserves and frozen products since 1954. Valenzi ensures product quality with GARVENS checkweighers.

Soup ingredients, mushrooms, meat dumplings and berries are key areas of production at Valenzi. Valenzi sells its products throughout the world and meets the strictest quality demands. Only top grade aromatic products can meet the company's own high standards. "Quality is a vital success factor in our company", explains Mathias Koeppen, CEO at Valenzi. "Strict quality demands govern the entire production process".

Many of the raw ingredients the company uses grow in the wild. As soon as they arrive, trained staff assesses their quality and the ones that pass the tests are then forwarded for ISO-certified processing. The mushrooms and forest fruits, which are gathered by hand in their country of origin, are washed, desalinated, hand sorted and checked for foreign bodies such as metal particles prior to filling.

"We produce in compliance with the IFS (International Food Standard) and place great emphasis on employing the latest technology and intelligent production machines", adds Mathias Koeppen. To perform the legally required weight checks, the company relies on the inline checkweighing technology of Mettler-Toledo Garvens.
