Cavendish Farms install Tomra eco steam peeler
Cavendish Farms, one of the largest processors of frozen potato products in North America, is equipping its new, state-of-the-art production facility in Lethbridge, Alberta with Tomra’s eco steam peelers.
“We are continuously looking for new ways to reduce our carbon footprint and increase our processing efficiency. To equip our new facility in Lethbridge, we partnered with Tomra Food. We expect to achieve significant savings in energy costs and raw materials to produce the highest quality frozen potato products.” said Andrew Macleod, Lethbridge project lead at Cavendish Farms.
Eamonn Cullen, market unit manager peeling at Tomra Food said: “Steam peeling has for a long time been the most efficient method of removing skin from the surface of vegetables. Tomra’s eco steam peeler is not only the fastest steam peeler; it is also the most efficient in the industry, using 28 per cent less steam than other peelers of its type.”
