Checkweighing Technology For Frozen Potato Food Manufacturers
The Dutch company Lamb Weston/Meijer V.O.F is one of the largest frozen potato product manufacturers in the world. 15 tons of potatoes per hour are processed in the Oosterbierum-based company, which supplies its products to the world's biggest quick-service restaurants and food services in 80 countries throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa. A huge amount of products need to be reliably checked in order to meet the requirements of net content laws for packaged products and to ensure customer satisfaction – as well as eliminate expensive product giveaway.
Due to the small amount of space available, Lamb Weston needed a checkweighing solution that was space-saving and, at the same time, adapted to the height dimensions of upstream and downstream machines. Read how by retrofitting its production lines with five new METTLER TOLEDO checkweighers they were able to achieve a higher throughput than ever before.
