Ready-To-Eat Foods

In today’s fast-paced society having access to ready-made food is an important convenience. With an increase in demand there is an increased need for production. One way to maximize productivity is to have food moving along a conveyor with employees adding ingredients as the product passes their station. Using a conveyor assembly line fo​r ready-to-eat food is a more streamlined process because each employee is only in charge of one ingredient instead of having to make the entire product.

Benefits of Dorner’s Ready-to-Eat Conveyors:

Dorner has experience with ready-to-eat foods such as sandwiches, meals, parfait cups, salads and more. We understand that these produces require conveyors that can be efficiently and effectively cleaned and sanitized over the lifetime of the equipment. Also, all parts of the equipment must be easily accessible for inspection, maintenance and cleaning without the need for tools.

Food safety is another important factor for ready-to-eat food conveyors, such as making sure that there are no of areas where water or food can collect.
