Baker Perkins expands portfolio
Baker Perkins has developed new equipment to create crunchy granola bars in order to expand its portfolio.
This latest development adds to an equipment range which already includes capabilities for crunchy baked granola cereals.
The new process involves compressing a sheet of pre-mixed granola to a higher density than conventional cold-formed granola bars, achieving a biscuit-like product with a sharp bite. It was developed to fill a distinct, “emerging niche market”.
A newly developed forming unit meets the challenge of accurately guillotining the baked granola slab into bars. It features servo-control to ensure complete control over the cutting operation.
