Consumers warm up to the frozen food aisle
Frozen food sales, which had been steadily declining, warmed up during the pandemic as anxious consumers looked for products with a longer shelf life to ensure supply. This reintroduced consumers to frozen food’s quality, variety, and sustainability for a sudden surge in sales that had the frozen food category outgrowing fresh by 230% in the past year. Ready meals, mixes, and blends, among other products, experience a high degree of popularity in the frozen food section. Variety and flavor combinations are designed to retain consumer interest in this category.
Flexibility of tubular conveyor system preserves floor space
Cablevey tubular drag conveyors are known for gently transporting delicate food products and ingredients, like frozen fruits and vegetables. The moisture content of frozen fruits and vegetables renders them fragile and tricky to transport. High speeds or elevated temperatures can cause thawing and product degradation through friction or processing. Our conveyors combine gentle transport with desired throughput speed while preventing unwanted thawing and preserving product integrity.
Maximize productivity while maintaining product quality of frozen fruits, vegetables, and blends with a tubular drag system conveyor with Stainless Steel and polycarbonate (clear) tubing – ideal for a variety of frozen fruits, vegetables and blends . The modular design of our cable and disc conveyor systems offers flexibility for myriad configurations within an economical plant footprint to help preserve valuable floor space. A minimal number of parts in various sizes, tube diameters, and tube materials combine to expand system layout potential in terms of direction changes or multiple inlets/outlets.
