The food industry is growing thanks to increased exports. In 2020, the European food industry’s estimated overall turnover was over 1.4 billion euros, making it one of Europe’s most important industries. However, the industry has been struggling with consistently low consumer prices for several years. Sustainable production and higher-quality products are considered to be the main opportunities to improve prices.
Potential contamination, food traceability and safety, sustainable production and environmentally friendly packaging are therefore all crucial issues for the industry. As a result, plants are subject to strict hygiene standards and should be as easy and quick to clean as possible.

Our product portfolio also contains drums and containers for specific steps in the production chain, conveyor equipment for containers (including emptying) and packaging items like boxes, sacks and packets.
