How PERUZA solves 5 common problems in the food processing industry

In the last 30 years at PERUZA, we’ve gotten to know the European food processing landscape. We know the many issues the food processing industry faces, and our mission is to help you overcome these obstacles, so your business can thrive for years to come.

How? By implementing innovative, yet cost-effective, robotic precision machinery to the food processing industry production facilities, depending on the needs of your business.

But what are the key issues in food processing for 2020?

1. Lack of appropriate labour force

You already know that the food processing industry is labour intensive—it takes huge teams to make everything run smoothly, and these teams are often hard to form, due to lack of an appropriate local labour market. This effect is of course amplified during the current pandemic situation.

The answer to this problem is investment in automated robotic machinery, and our research and development is highly focused on these technologies. It’s essential, now more than ever, to invest in and adopt robotic applications into your processes.

Indeed, over 90% of production companies already use some element of robotics & automation, and this will only increase in future.

2. Bottlenecks and inefficiencies in industry production processes

We believe in the centralisation of production floor technologies with intuitively designed data systems with user-friendly data reporting. This allows bottlenecks in processes to be fixed quickly and effectively upon discovery, increasing processing throughput.

We also understand that everyone’s operation works differently—that’s why our pre and after-sales process aims to solve specific issues you’re facing.

For example, many of our clients find our advanced reduced giveaway line essential to their packing process. Our unique algorithmic calculations reduce the giveaway of the product and increase your line capacity. Which also brings us on to the next problem:

3. Excessive losses in product production processes

Losses during processes that could be much more efficient is a major source of pain for those in the food processing industry.

At PERUZA, this has been one of our key missions—to innovate on efficient technologies to eradicate waste, improving profitability and sustainability in the long run.

Take our small fish processing machinery for example—we can process smaller fish with a higher yield, and less waste, than other big players on the market with our pelagic fish nobbing machine. Our speciality is in the speed and accuracy of small fish (130-150mm) nobbing, with a rate of 500 fish per minute (pocket speed).

If your palletizing and depalletizing processes still involve manual human labour, you’re going to be overtaken by players who invest in robotic technology such as the full layer palletizer, early.

4. Expensive production costs

Cost-effectiveness is a priority for us.

In order to be competitive in the marketplace, we know our partners need assurance that we do all we can to keep production costs low. In many developed countries, the production of food products is often expensive due to increased labor and raw material costs.

With an initial investment in automation technologies, we have seen clients in 30 different countries save on labor costs over time, and create more efficient processes for employees too.  Plus, our post-installation support quality is a standard that’s kept our long term clients satisfied with their new technology in the long-term.

We can pass all this value on to you in the form of efficient, yet economical, personalized solutions.

5. Temperature control during the production process

We know that certain partners of ours need to reduce temperature losses (drip-loss), and we recognize the importance of steady temperature control during production and offer the possibility to implement this feature into our custom-built solutions.

Which of the above challenges are you facing?

We started our journey in 1991 and since then things are getting more and more exciting here at PERUZA. From 2011 when we launched our first robotized production solutions, to 2019 when we engineered the world’s largest fish drying plant in Iceland, we look forward to new challenges.

Could our next challenge be perfecting your production process? 

At PERUZA we think innovatively. We are a team of 70+ professional engineers who strive to build precisely engineered solutions for your exact situation.
