New project for french fries in South Africa

“Capacity, quality, futureproofing,… were some key focus points for this client in South Africa, something they made clear for us when we started the project journey together”, explains sales manager Dries De Block at Rosenqvists Food Technologies.

Understanding the local challenge of dry matter fluctuations throughout the season in raw material, made them decide on going for a large drying system. This system offers the opportunity to maintain final capacity requirements even when processing lower dry matter potatoes.

Furthermore, they have chosen for flexibility by choosing a setup where in the future an extra coating section can be added to the line. The project already includes important upgrade possibilities for more production capacity and a bigger range of products.

“I am very proud I was part of this project and to see this state-of-the-art line for french fries in operation”, concludes Dries De Block. Warmest thanks to the client for great cooperation and partnership in sales with Gary Clack from Albrecht Machinery.

The first fries are special – read the newsletter

In this newsletter you can read about the new generation of automation software. This new platform from Siemens has enables us to develop new user interface for the operators. We are sharing a short film from one of our recent installations for French fries. New material for leaf springs in vibratory conveyors and a smart design for wear indication for the gliding strips are introduced. With increasing demands from the market, you will also get to know some of our new team members.

Daily operations continue at a fast pace at Rosenqvists Food Technologies, solving new design challenges. It makes me happy and proud to see all improvements we manage to implement in projects we are working on. During the latest six months, significant changes have been made to lower oil volume in our snack pellet fryer, improved protection for the potato speciality fryer, achieved better hygiene in our new drying system for French fries, lowered the surface water of the chips slices for potato chips and increased speeds in frying systems for prefabricated chips.

Our workshop recently celebrated 125 years of operation. In Gringelstad, in the south of Sweden, blacksmith Master Algot started to manufacture and repair tools, wagon wheels and horseshoes for local farmers and the nearby manor of Ugerup. This was back in 1898 when every village had its own blacksmith. There are many stories of Master Algot and his new constructions and inventions. These were products made from conversations with local farmers, solving their challenges.

In 1960, we started to manufacture irrigation machines under the brand Rosenqvists.

In 1976, we started to manufacture machines for food processing under the brand PPM. Eventually, this production merged into today’s Rosenqvists Food Technologies.

Still today, we listen to what our client’s needs, and we are ready to adapt our design to make it fit perfectly. The handcraft skills of the people working here is world-class and our most important resource. Moving forward, we proceed our focus on food processing and, of course, especially potato processing.

Kind regards,

Stefan Björk, Managing Director

We follow our clients strive to achieve an efficient production process and try our best to support with advice. It is impressive to learn about your initiatives to save water, recover energy from frying systems, turning waste stream into bio-energy and many more initiatives. It is clear for us at Rosenqvists Food Technologies that the potato processing industry is determined to improve reducing the carbon footprint and environmental impact as much as possible. Efficiency improvements are important from an economic standpoint, but are essential in developing our industry to a sustainable and positive view in the society.

R-News: What happened in 2022 – What we look forward to?

Dear Friend,

This past year has been eventful for us at Rosenqvists Food Technologies. When I think about the projects, we have been supporting in 2022, I am especially satisfied of how much we have learned together with you, our clients and partners. The important improvement in our solutions is realized thanks to relevant interaction with you and thanks to committed team members in our company. I am thankful for this important collaboration. A few special memories from the achievements during the past year are:

  • A completed re-design of the star wheel fryer for snack pellets.
  • Studies and training in how to optimize the production of potato chips. There are still so much to master regarding energy efficiency, water usage and, of course, product development.
  • Verification of the performance of the new drying system for french fries. Performance, ability to clean and energy consumption means lower production cost and longer production hours for our clients.
  • Validation that our frying system for potato specialities offers unique benefits in terms of oil volume and oil flow.
  • The processing line for coated french fries is updated to allow for easier cleaning.

I don’t know exactly what the coming year has to offer us, but my expectations are high. The discussions we currently have for future projects tells me that the food industry has a positive view of the future. We are in for an exciting year. I look forward to diving in deeper into new heat supply sources for potato chips, to develop and prepare new solutions for preparing french fries into further processing and for a re-design of the biggest star wheel fryer for pellets offering even better oil turn-over rate. We have a lot going in terms of development. Still, the most rewarding satisfaction I experience is when I see some our machines in action in your production site, doing its job, hour after hour, day after day.

Thank you for your trust and business during the year, it means a lot. I wish you some nice days over Christmas and New Years!

Kind regards,

Stefan Björk, Managing Director Rosenqvists Food Technologies
