The food industry heeds the call for increased production

As the global population expands to an anticipated 9.3 billion by 2050, the Food and Agriculture Organization estimates the world’s agricultural industry will need to produce 60% more food than to provide adequate nutrition for that size population. Every aspect of manufacturing and conveying can contribute to this goal, improve efficiencies, and reduce waste and breakage. The proper conveying system can help reduce waste and preserve product integrity.

Tubular conveying helps prevent food waste

Prevent food waste by preserving product integrity with a tubular drag conveyor from Cablevey. Whether processed, dried, frozen, or fresh, a Cablevey tubular drag conveyor can aid food processors and manufacturers that need gentle conveyance for delicate materials or ingredients to preserve quality and edibility. Tubular drag system conveyors are hygienic and offer shorter cycle times for more thorough cleaning than other conveyors, facilitating more rapid changeovers. The enclosed design helps prevent contamination and drastically reduces dust. Count on our depth of experience in the food industry for FDA-approved materials like 304 stainless and food-grade engineered plastics for proper compliance.
