How tuna processors are improving profitability with a new sorting technology

Tuna processing is demanding, fiddly, and hugely labor intensive. So many people are involved in removing bones and scales from the fish, and in separating the differing colors and qualities of meat, that the risk of human errors is ever-present. So too are the risks of worker-related foreign materials, such as clothing fibers and strands of hair, falling into the product.

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF Johnny Barclay

"2020 got off to an exciting start for me, full of change, and provided many new experiences. It started with me bouncing around the Americas - leaving my home in the States and spending February in Brazil with my girlfriend and her family. The next month, I got on a plane again to get situated across the pond in Belgium and start my new role at TOMRA Food."

 

TOMRA FOOD MERGES BEST-IN-CLASS ENGINEERING AND INTELLIGENCE WITH LAUNCH OF THE TOMRA 5C

Revolutionary Upgrades to Sensors and Insight Tools Lead to Better Bottom Lines for Processors. 

SOLVING THE CHALLENGE OF POTATO PROCESSING FOR KETTLE CHIPS

The booming popularity of kettle chips (known in some parts of the world as ‘crisps’) brings potato processors a mixture of opportunities and challenges. Opportunities lie in the strong demand for a potato-based product that commands a premium price. Challenges arise because what originated as a low-volume ‘artisan’ snack must now be produced in vast and faultless quantities for big-brand retailers with reputations to protect.

Vegetable processors can improve efficiencies by unlocking big data

For vegetable processors, the saying that “knowledge is power” is especially true now that they can use the new TOMRA Insight web-based data platform. By gathering detailed data from sorting machines, this subscription-based service gives processors more knowledge about what’s happening on their lines and the power to make better-informed decisions. This is transforming sorting from an operational process into a strategic management tool.

This frozen vegetable mixing, packaging, storage, and distribution center is one of the most technologically advanced in the industry.

For IQF vegetable processors, BSI+ sorting technology accomplishes ‘mission impossible’

Fulfilling the two biggest responsibilities of IQF vegetable processing, food safety and product quality, can sometimes seem like mission impossible. Though processors are tasked with preventing foreign materials and imperfect produce from reaching the end of the line, these difficult-to-see enemies can also be difficult to stop. Extraneous vegetable material (EVM) and foreign extraneous vegetable material (FEVM) are often unseeable by the human eye and not always detectable by conventional sorting machines. But now there is a groundbreaking sorting technology which makes the previously impossible possible.
