OAL Group Scoop Technological Development of the Year for the 2nd Year Running

Optimized-Batchmate Matt WardOAL Group won the award for “Technological Development of the Year” for the 2nd year running at the recent Food Processing Awards. This year the company’s patented high accuracy liquid dosing technology, Batchmate™, proved triumphant in the highly competitive innovation category.

Batchmate™ allows bakeries to produce a more consistent loaf of bread with less ingredient waste by dosing high concentrate ingredients accurately. Furthermore by enabling the use of higher concentrate liquid ingredients, the volumes of ingredients transported has fallen thus reducing the carbon footprint of their bread production.

Harry Norman, MD of OAL Group enthused, “It’s fantastic for OAL Group to be recognised for innovation. We invest considerably more than the average engineering company in R&D, circa 8% of turnover, because we know that innovation is critical to not just to our own success but the challenges the food industry faces.”

Last year OAL Group’s revolutionary heating and mixing process, Steam Infusion, won the same award. OAL  are leading a £1million UK government funded  Nutrition for Life project into the development of healthier food using Steam Infusion in partnership with the University of Lincoln and a leading UK food manufacturer.

Off the back of this research project, one of OAL Group’s talented young engineers was shortlisted for the young talent of the year category at the Food Manufacturing Excellence Awards. Ben Bowman joined OAL in 2013 after graduating from the University of Bristol with a Masters in Mechanical Engineering and has been heavily involved with the Steam Infusion Nutrition for Life project.
