Formed food products, such as burgers and nuggets have become a meal component of the modern diet. They are convenient, fun, appetizing and every parent knows they can rely on them to put a smile on their children’s face. Now, as tastes change, formed products include meat replacement products, vegetarian options and trendy whole muscle products.
Behind the fun and convenience is a highly competitive industry in which variety, capacity, yield, versatility, hygiene, sustainability and, above all, product quality are the key drivers.
Being in the forming business for over half a century, GEA takes a lead in this demanding market with forming equipment to meet every customer’s needs. Nowadays offering both plate formers and drum formers.
The versatile GEA FreshFormer, for example, is an easy-to-use plate former for forming small batches of fresh meat and vegetables especially when users are producing a wide range of products and so need a fast product changeover.
For higher production levels we have the GEA MultiFormer that can form virtually any product into any shape including irregular and novelty shapes, even those with a 3D appearance.
Then comes the GEA MaxiFormer, the world’s leading high-capacity drum former for high-speed production of long-run products with excellent shape retention and weight accuracy.
Add to this the passionate GEA people and their unrevealed application know-how and you have the ultimate winning formula. That’s forming the GEA way.
