Eco-friendly Hummus / Dip Processing System  

BCH have developed a high-speed system which improves the whole chickpea cooking and cooling process by removing the pre-soak stage, speeding up the cooking process, and introducing a rapid cooling method. Food manufacturers can reduce their labour requirements, whilst saving valuable time and resources such as water and power. Traditionally, the preparation of chickpeas to make Hummus can take over 10 hours, with the need to pre-soak the raw chickpeas before cooking, our systems offer a far more streamlined operation, enabling cooking to be carried out in parallel with cooling, to provide customers with a reliable, semi-continuous, fully integrated production solution. In many cases, it may be possible to reduce production time by up to 10 hours!
