Sustainable value creation
Cérélia aims to drive long-term sustainable value creation, and this can only be done in close cooperation with various business partners. In order to stay ahead of customer wishes, Cérélia offers a wide variety of products of consistently high quality. These products are made in state-of-the-.art facilities.
Staying ahead and maintaining a state-of-the-art facility led Cérélia on the way to Daniatech SiccaDania. To optimise Cérélia’s production, the experts at Daniatech suggested two VacuumMaster which allow for batch production and easy switch between productions.
The right equipment
Cérélia’s standards for personal safety and industrial and logistical safety meet the highest requirements. They invest to continually optimise all aspects of production including the mixing of the batter.
“With Daniatech’s two ProcessMasters, we are able to continue making reliable contributions to our recipes in our state-of-the-art facility” – Jens Andriessen, project engineer, Cérélia
One of the reasons for choosing Daniatech SiccaDania was their know-how and expertise within the industry. Knowing the product is essential especially when creating the perfect mixer. In the world of pancakes, there is a variety of types – from American pancakes to savoury and sweet pancakes. Because of the many different products produced at the Cérélia facility, it was essential that a new mixer was able to handle a quick switch from one batch to another.
Matching the equipment to the customer
The mixer chosen was two VacuumMasters. These two VacuumMasters working as batch mixers are equipped with powder funnels, high shear ShearMaster and a scraper agitator. The core technology of the VacuumMaster is based on a highly efficient dynamic ShearMaster used to emulsify water/oil/water and/or instant disperse powder, wheat flour and sugar into the water.
“We are able to guarantee the best price/quality based on high trustworthy standards in all aspects of our business through good cooperation with both our equipment suppliers, customers and retailers” – Jens Andriessen, project engineer, Cérélia
