Wouters has three modern mixing stations and filling lines for the packaging of solid fats, oils, margarines, and bread improver pastes. A fourth mixing unit is used for the production of powder improvers. Mixtures can consist of only oils and fats, but we also produce products with a water phase (margarines), or complex products such as bread improvers (including emulsifiers and dry matter). An antioxidant and/or an anti-foaming agent is often added to oil mixtures, usually of natural origin.
The physical forms can be solid (deep-frying fats), liquid (oils), pastes (bread improvers), liquid (improvers, pumpable shortenings), or even powdered (bread improvers, patisserie mixes).
The forms of packaging vary from small (jerrycans, American boxes with bags, wrap-around boxes, cans, bag-in-box) to larger (drums, liquabins, and IBCs), and bulk trucks.
All mixing installations and packaging lines are controlled from a central control unit that controls the PLCs. The parallel ERP package ensures perfect identification, stock management, and traceability of the finished products.
