Before we decided on the machine we wanted to develop next, extensive research was carried out in which our customers’ requirements played a major role. It goes without saying that we have also taken the health trend of today's society sufficiently into account.
Since health and sustainability are of paramount importance to our company, having a ginger line was essential. So, that was to be the new investment made by Cool Port Packing Rotterdam, and the result is impressive!
Apart from the fact that sorting and repacking can be done faster, more hygienically, and more carefully, the new ginger line offers even more advantages. As a result of the automated process, our employees have more time available to fully focus on sorting and packing.
From pallet stacking and binding to controlling both the production line and quality, everything has been improved. With all these good developments, having a new flow pack machine – to be specifically used for ginger – was inevitable. Both investments ensure that no requirement regarding sorting and packing is too extreme for us.
Ginger is one of the most consumed and healthiest spices in the world, and fortunately it is readily available all year round. It is known for its positive health effects:
Ginger can perfectly be grated, pressed, candied, crystallised, stir-fried, or added to stews. This is definitely not limited to Asian dishes, as ginger is even used in Dutch cuisine. Consider using it in red cabbage, apple sauce, or in a butter cake. Would you like to enjoy the health benefits of ginger in an easier way? Make ginger tea!
In addition, fresh ginger is easy to keep in the refrigerator: roll it up in a kitchen towel and then loosely wrap it in cling film.
