From Individual Machines to Complete Lines – Interfood Announces Collaboration With Alco

InterfoodAlcoMarch2015Interfood has extended its offering to the food processing industry by adding the Alco range of machinery to the list of major manufacturers for which the company is the sole distributor in the UK and Ireland.

Alco is based in Germany and has been manufacturing high quality machines for use in the preparation and further processing of meat, fish, poultry, vegetable, potato and dairy products since 1977. The range of equipment produced by Alco is extensive, including machines for mixing, forming, flattening, tenderising, slicing, coating, cooking and cooling food products. In addition to the production of individual machines, one of the strengths of Alco is its extensive experience in developing complete lines. Its equipment in forming, breading, frying, cooking and freezing can be combined to produce complete convenience lines, while standardisation lines can be created from its grinding, mixing, conveying and buffering machines.

The addition of Alco is an excellent fit for Interfood’s existing product offering, adding further capabilities to Interfood’s Preparation Division and Cooking & Cooling/Pasteurisation Division.

Commenting on the setting up of the new relationship between Interfood and Alco, Mark Bishop, Joint Managing Director of Interfood, says: “We’re delighted to announce this new development and look forward to working with Alco and to introducing the opportunities this brings for our customers. As with any new distributorship that we take on at Interfood, we will be backing it with a dedicated team of Interfood engineers to ensure that the service and support is there to maximise the potential of the equipment. And, as is the case with the wide range of food processing machines that we already offer, the two food technologists we employ are available to assist with new product ideas.”
