They purchased an Italian machine from the GSP brand. "It is the 55EVO. This machine is distributed by the Belgian company, Presa Tendeur, with whom we have a good relationship since we got our previous machine. We had a GSP before, but with that machine we had to still put a label on the packaging. For that we needed an extra person and three people worked on the machine. Now we only need two."
The machine also saves time. "With the previous one, the production capacity was 400 bushels in 20 minutes with three people. Now we do the same amount in 13 minutes with two people."
Frank does not expect to expand in the near future. "We are at maximum capacity now and we want to focus on giving our customers consistent quality throughout the year. For the future, we want to try and maintain this quality and keep our customers as happy as possible", he concludes.
