In the food industry, the amount of generated waste or loss is an aspect to improve.
What is the food industry scrap?
When we talk about food industry waste, we refer to the raw materials and products resulting from the transformation process which, under the industry´s quality criteria, are discarded.
How to reduce scrap?
One way to reduce this loss is implementing total product or raw material recovery processes.
As long as the product is optimal in terms of safety and meets the criteria for the recovery operation, food can be submitted to the milling process.
Through this process, a calibrating mill reduces the size of the particles obtaining a fresh smooth mix that can be reused without compromising the product quality.
PAT Group´s mills allow to accurately control the solid particle calibration process variables, both for raw materials and dry and wet granules, and for cookies, biscuits and alfajores, among other products.
The implementation of these waste control practices contribute to the reduction of food waste and results in a significant cost reduction for the company.
