Interfood’s ‘Magnificent 7’ on Show at Foodex

Interfood’s ‘Magnificent 7’ on Show at Foodex

Interfood Technology will once again be returning to Foodex, using stand Q320 to showcase many of the latest developments from the company’s seven divisions which collectively represents one of the most comprehensive ranges of machinery and equipment in the food processing market.

On show for the first time at Foodex will be Interfood’s Packing Solutions Division, the latest addition to the company’s product offering which now covers Ingredients & Product Development, Fresh Meat Portioning, Preparation, Curing to Clipping, Cooking & Cooling/Pasteurisation, Slicing, and Packing Solutions.

Divisions-based Approach 

Interfood has moved towards this Divisions-based approach, with each Division operating within the Interfood business but offering specific capabilities and dedicated teams of engineers and support personnel.

Interfood’s Packing Solutions division, with its compact and fully automatic solutions from Buhmann, will be on show for the first time at Foodex.

Jim Sydenham, Joint MD of Interfood, says: “We have introduced the divisions to allow us to maintain a clear focus on specific processes and products. From discussions with our customers it became clear that there was a lot of interest in automated solutions for end of line processes, hence we introduced the Packing Solutions Division. This has been operating now for about a year but this is the first time we’ve had an opportunity to include it at Foodex.” The Packing Solutions range includes compact and fully automatic packing systems manufactured by Buhmann, plus checkweighing, metal detection and x-ray systems from Sparc Systems.

Latest Developments

There will also be many of the latest developments from the leading manufacturers that Interfood represent in the UK and Eire, including the Weber CCS 906 slicer and the TVI GMS 500 fresh meat portioner.

The TVI GMS 500 fresh meat portioner can portion and dice both bone-in and bone-less meats.

The 906 is Weber’s latest addition to its range of high performance slicing lines and will feature the new power control system operator interface.  This international award winning operator system is based on an approach which is very familiar to many through the use of smartphones and tablets, employing graphics which are swiped on a touchscreen to bring up the various options. The system’s in-built intelligence reduces the number of parameters, thereby significantly simplifying operation, with all important settings available via a single touch.

Manufactured by TVI, the GMS 500 offers the ultimate in flexibility, allowing bone-in and bone-less meats to be portioned and diced all on one machine, with changing from product to product achieved in minutes and without the need of any tools.

Mark Bishop, joint MD of Interfood, comments: “We know how important yield is in today’s meat processing applications and with the GMS 500, the highest possible yields are achieved through the patented gripper-less press and slice system which also ensures a marked improvement in pack presentation. The machine can be supplied with its own grading line, reducing give-away to an absolute minimum and ensuring only accurate portions are delivered to the packaging machine.”
