Kemin and Umbra Packaging
Upon the renewal of the Italian Kemin plant in Veronella, in the Verona area, the Company realised it needed to equip its facility with a packaging system that would be able to process its highly dusty and fluid products. Hygiene and non-contamination were major issues for the system that Kemin wanted to purchase.
Umbra Packaging's proposal: UP Hygenic
Alongside the development of its own R&D department within the Pet Food area, Umbra Packaging set up a “Powder Division” focused on the design and manufacture of powder product packaging systems with its own patented technology. The analyses and investments made in this department led to developing “UP HYGIENIC,” a packaging machine specifically designed for powder products. This machine stands out for a number of distinctive features such as: bag de-aeration stations, separation between electrical and pneumatic rooms, no cross contamination, ease of inspection and easy clean metering unit.
Umbra Packaging was involved in the project and immediately provided the Customer with the best solution in terms of technological contents, food safety, elimination of the previous powder dispersion problems, as well as safety as a result of removing any risk factors in product contamination.
