Greencore Meat Cooks and Béchamel Sauce Steam Infusion Success
Greencore Group plc is a leading international manufacturer of convenience foods. They are proud to supply a wide range of chilled, frozen and ambient foods to some of the most successful retail and foodservice customers in the UK and US.
Improving Meat and BéchamelSauce Cooks
Greencore has improved their meat cooks and béchamel sauce production with Steam Infusion. The Steam Infusion Vaction™ technology has been retrofitted to existing kettles, speeding up production times. Significantly, the lack of burn on contamination has slashed cleaning times allowing twice as many batches to be completed in a shift.
Greencore are also using Steam Infusion for meat cooks and are benefiting from improved quality due to the homogenising effect the process has on fat. Chris Brooks, OAL's development chef explains how meat cooks compare with Steam Infusion and a steam jacketed kettle in this insight piece.
