Packaging company tna has entered the food seasoning market with the acquisition of Arcall.
Tna Director of Business Development, Bob Fritz, said: “Seasoning is an integral part of the manufacturing process and finding an effective seasoning system is vital for the success of any production line. Our acquisition of Arcall has given tna access to market-leading seasoning technology and now positions us as the only supplier of seasoning solutions for the whole production line – from the end of fryers or ovens right through to packing.”
Arcall develops seasoning systems for wet and dry applications. Its machines for wet applications feature a cross band, spinning disc systems, which can apply a wide variety of liquids to products such as biscuits, crackers, confectionary, pizza, fish, meat/poultry and baked goods. The machines can apply various liquids to these products, including oils, slurries, egg , syrups and barrier fats.
The acquisition, which is effective immediately, comes after many years of effective collaboration between the two companies, says tna.
