Food processing innovations at Anuga Foodtec

Anuga Foodtec in Cologne opened its door today, and our experienced team will be on hand all week to discuss food processing solutions with their customers.

Visit us in Hall 10.1 Stand G060 where we have lots on show including:

Cooking & Vacuum Cooling System:

The combination of BCH Cooking and Vacuum Cooling into one complete system means you can guarantee foods are cooked and cooled rapidly with repeatability and food safety whilst benefitting from a smaller footprint with reduced labour and energy costs.

The Optima – more than simply a mixing vessel – the ultimate all-in-one system with more processing options than ever before. Suitable for all your food manufacturing requirements, the Optima provides customers with the freedom to become independently creative with their unique process and product.

Bratt Pan:

BCH’s bratt pans can be utilised for a wide range of cooking functions including shallow or stir frying, braising, boiling, steaming, poaching or stewing. This versatile pan is also used extensively in the ethnic ready meals industry for cooking basmati and pilau rice using the total absorption cooking methods, and also for the production of curry sauces.

BCH can help with all your food processing queries, whether its soups and sauces, rice and pasta and of course confectionery!  We look forward to seeing you on the stand.
