The food and beverage industries form some of the most challenging markets for Verder. For food and beverage makers, producing quality food and drink requires machines that are 100% reliable. It also means having equipment that is safe. Microbes present an ever-looming threat to food and beverage manufacturers. The current consumer trends in food favouring fresh, easy-to-prepare foods, with little sugar, salt, and no preservatives, makes it more difficult than ever to keep microbes out of food.
The directives from the European Hygienic Engineering Design Groups (EHEDG) are intended to prevent contamination. One of the major directives from EHEDG states that every part of the production line should be accessible for cleaning. The modular design of Packo’s centrifugal pumps allow for ready disassembly and reassembly, while their elector-polished stainless steel surface make it difficult for bacteria to adhere to the surface. But even the most hygienic plant must make quality food and drink, and other Verder subsidiaries make this possible: the gentle action of the peristaltic pumps (Verderflex) prevent shearing damage to sensitive liquids, while particle analysis through products made by Retsch help guarantee a consistent product.
