What is the real star of the BBQ season? Mayonnaise of course!

Did you know that during the BBQ season tons of mayonnaise are consumed? Mayonnaise is a key ingredient in all of our favorite BBQ side dishes such as coleslaw, potato salad and pasta salad, in our potato crisp dips like sour cream & chive, as a dressing for a green salad, as well as accompanying our burgers and sausages! No wonder that in mayonnaise loving countries the average consumption of one person is 5.1 kilograms per year. So, what is mayonnaise exactly, and how is it produced? Mayonnaise is a stable emulsion of oil, egg yolks, vinegar, and depending on the recipe vinegar, mustard, lemon juice and various herbs and spices are added to give the product its unique flavor. In large-scale production of mayonnaise, a high-shear mechanical emulsification process is used to mix all the ingredients together ensuring a smooth consistency with a creamy texture. This mixing process takes place under a vacuum which removes air from the product. The removal of air is important as it significantly increases the shelf life of mayonnaise. If mayonnaise is the real star of the BBQ season then FrymaKoruma is the real star of mayonnaise production! Our Swiss company is the leading manufacturer of mayonnaise processing equipment with over 65 years of experience. FrymaKoruma has been the preferred supplier to the world’s biggest mayonnaise brands for decades. So, back to those mayonnaise lovers. A FrymaKoruma mayonnaise machine can produce up to 4000 kilograms per hour – enough to feed 800 of them. If you are interested in our mayonnaise processing equipment, please contact ProXES UK & Ireland or FrymaKoruma (a member of the ProXES Group).

ProXES Asia Pacific was awarded the ´Inner Beauty´ project!

The ´Inner Beauty´ project was initiated by the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (South Korea) for the promotion and construction of industrial clusters in rural areas by producing organic fruits and environment-friendly cosmetics. There within, Namwon city has been appointed to develop the first demonstration project case for the organic fruit clusters. Our proposal of organic processing (i.e. no additives, preservatives, colouring, etc.) could fully convince the ‘Major of Namwon City’ and the ‘President of Namwon Agricultural Cooperative Federation’. In the future, the cooperative members (farmers) will be able to produce high value added products including fruit puree, jams and sauces based on our exquisite Processing Technology. We are proud that our compact line-concept consisting of Stephan Machinery, FrymaKoruma, Terlet and SUATEC elements was chosen for this high prestige project by Namwon City (South Korea) via the Namwon NH Bank (National Agricultural Cooperative Federation Bank).

Anuga FoodTec 2018 exceeded all expectations!

We are proud to announce that Anuga FoodTec 2018 was very successful for our group of companies. Above all, the excellent cooperation with the colleagues from Stephan Machinery, FrymaKoruma, SUATEC and Terlet made this success possible. Especially the exhibited machines and the line concept of our group of companies convinced the demanding trade visitors at the Anuga FoodTec 2018 in Cologne. This is illustrated primarily in the generated business contacts, whereby we will be busy with their postprocessing for months. Finally, Stephan Machinery GmbH received the Silver International FoodTec Award for the SAM - STEPHAN ® Aseptic Multitherm. This prestigious award from DLG (and partners) recognizes groundbreaking developments in terms of innovation, sustainability and efficiency in food technology. A silver medal is given to products that have been developed to achieve a significant improvement in function or procedure. The SAM produces semi-liquid end products with aseptic properties, which allows a much longer shelf life of fresh applications. In addition, Terlet successfully presented the Donut Cooker, a new machine for cooking fruit preparations. FrymaKoruma showed possibilities of professional retrofitting of a used machine as well as the production of vegan ice cream, which was very popular among the trade fair visitors. SUATEC's range of control and automation technology was very well received.
