Orchard Valley Foods, a manufacturer of edible baking decorations, required a solution that would increase the shelf life and ensure the freshness of its products. The company contacted Enercon Industries and introduced induction heat sealing to its production process to protect the food product.
Chocolate chips, popping candy and fudge pieces are among the food products benefitting from an induction seal as Orchard Valley Foods, a manufacturer of edible baking ingredients, uses Enercon Industries’ world leading induction sealing technology to protect the integrity of its product.
Food manufacturer commends induction cap sealing as the best solution for sealing jars
Samuel Tozer, Site Engineer at Orchard Valley Foods, said: “As we are in the food industry it is paramount that the product is immediately sealed after packing to eliminate the possibility of foreign body introduction.
“Induction sealing is the best option for us to use on our jar lines as we require consistent results while dealing with a high volume throughput.”
In a single production day the company seals around 4,500 jars using Enercon’s best-selling machine, the Super Seal™ 100.
“When we needed to upgrade some of our older sealing equipment we immediately contacted Enercon,” said Mr Tozer. “The expertise and product that they offer is second to none and by purchasing this equipment we were certain of the quality of product and support to expect.”
One of the major benefits of using the Super Seal ™ 100 was that Orchard could use the same machine for a variety of containers without wasting precious production time.
“We use the same machine for small, medium and large sized jars in weights as low as 30 grams through to 1.1kg,” he said. “I would recommend induction sealing as the best solution to sealing jars and champion the use of Enercon equipment.”
