BCH machine for Kendal Mint Cake Features on TV again

This week saw a BCH custom built cooking vessel return to our TV screens on Inside the Factory.

The machine was designed especially for George Romney for the production of syrup product at high temperature without the facility of having steam available in the production facility. Once cooled in moulds, this forms into the world famous Kendal Mint Cake and is all produced on our machine at the one site.

Kendal Mint Cake is enjoyed as a novelty for the many tourists visiting from around the world, or essential energy source for hikers and mountaineers!

You can watch this on catch up in the iPlayer from around 39 minutes. Inside The Factory

It’s not the first time the kettle at Romney’s has featured on TV. You can also watch back an episode of the Ade in Britain Series by following this link Ade In Britain

The machine was also featured previously by Cumbrian TV producer Gary Robinson – Watch Again

BCH are here to help any customers realize their vision by our ability to design and build bespoke machines and solutions for the food and confectionery industry.

ProSweets Exhibition

ProSweets Round-Up

The BCH Viscotator proved very popular at the recent ProSweets exhibition, with manufacturers keen to explore the distinct advantages a separate cooking and extrusion process can provide.   Our system offers customers an improved solution from a traditional cooker extruder, with better taste and texture and also a significant reduction in operating cost by using steam instead of electricity for the cooking process.

Equally, the Sugar Paste Manufacturing centre with on-board mucilage vessel and control system allowed visitors the opportunity to realise the benefits a BCH solution can offer.

The team are very busy following up the leads after the extremely successful show with a record number of visitors to the stand.  We had lots of existing clients coming to see us with enquiries for new systems and process upgrades, as well as many new contacts from across the globe.

Not long now until we are at the Expo Centre Nasrec, Johannesburg, South Africa for the Propak exhibition that runs from the 12th to the 15th March. We will be on hand to discuss our wide range of solutions for both the Food and Confectionery manufacturing sectors.
