UK-based food processing equipment manufacturer Fabcon Food Systems (Fabcon) has secured a contract from Greek gluten-free snack producer Unismack for the supply of bespoke machinery.
Fabcon will install a seasoning system at Unismack’s bakery facility in Kilkis, northern Greece, under the arrangement.
The equipment included in the contract comprises a vibratory product infeed conveyor, a continuous, airless oil applicator to aid dry seasoning adherence, a screw feeder and scarf feeder for dry seasoning, and a stainless-steel seasoning drum.
Fabcon will also supply a vibratory product discharge conveyor fitted with screens for the removal of crumbs prior to packaging as part of the deal.
Fabcon managing director Trevor Howard said: “Unismack has ambitious plans to develop its products and therefore wanted a top-quality, cost-effective and reliable seasoning solution.
“In short, the new system we installed removes the need to add seasoning to raw dough batches before baking, which can lead to flavour loss in the finished product.
“Instead, seasoning can now be added continuously to any product, easily and effectively.
