FOOD & FEED | SPICES
Dry milling and classification of plants and spices
The POITTEMILL Group offers a wide range of products for the treatment of plants and spices for the food industry.
Pepper, cinnamon, cumin, saffron, we use them as much as we can in our food to give a unique taste and bring out the flavors. Spices are usually in their natural state, dried and mechanically processed to optimally develop their flavors.
Although they are mechanically processed, they face complex challenges to retain their properties besides firmness, size, color, oil content, shear strength and hardness of the spices… Therefore, successful preparation of spices and herbs requires tailor-made grinding processes according to the customer’s requirements and product properties.
At POITTEMILL, our decades of experience combined with a sophisticated technology offering for applications in the dry grinding and high-performance classification processing stages of plants and spices, as well as the proximity to our customers, lead to the design of machines that meet the current and future standards of this industry.
Sustainable processing solutions
Fully integrated solutions are the key to providing optimised processes that help you both reduce costs and make more sustainable use of valuable resources.
These systems are based on the principle of:
• Reliability and safety.
• Reduced operating and maintenance costs.
• Guaranteed hygienic, customer-oriented process solutions.
• Ease of cleaning.
• Energy saving.
The diversity of powder characteristics in these types of industries requires a combination of engineering skills and experience to design quality systems to meet the expectations of today’s and tomorrow’s customers.
Process testing and development
The POITTEMILL Group has its own scientific laboratory as well as a test center which is unique in France. It is in this test center that the dialogue between customers and the technical teams begins, but it is also here that detailed analyses of their raw materials are carried out in order to obtain complete information on the execution of the task set.
Our development and engineering team is always available to help you explore new and innovative processes and applications.
Our testing facilities offer exceptional opportunities to test ingredients, machines, parameters, and processes, whether in the laboratory, pilot or industrial scale, to ensure you achieve the necessary product quality and operating efficiency.
