Due to excessive maintenance costs Kadi looked for a new steam peeler. They offered multiple companies the opportunity to present their range of steam peeling solutions. TOMRA’s Eco steam peeler was the only one that met the specific expectations of Kadi. The company works with one production line upon which they process most of their food products: from express fries, French fries, rösti and frozen potatoes. Therefore it was a must have for Kadi to be able to continue processing like this.

“For us, quality means the optimal combination of long tried and tested recipes, carefully grown and selected raw materials and the use of the latest technologies”, says Peter Büeler

High quality

“TOMRA inspected our processing line to see where it could be improved. Although it was already delivering a very high quality TOMRA recommended the Eco steam peeler, a steam accumulator, the dry peel separator (DPS) and a new barrel washer. The objective was to provide us with the technology and tools to enable us to optimize the performance of the line even further for each size of potato and each end product”, clarifies Büeler.
