Specialist meat products producer Summit Foods has launched a new cooked ingredients division after investing in an advanced, continuous-contact belt oven.
Manufactured by Berief of Germany, the flexible system has enabled Summit Foods to offer a wide selection of high quality, fully cooked meat products for food manufacturers, including chicken, steak, bacon, sausages, burgers, meat balls and fish fingers.
The new cooking line features a Teflon-coated belt grill which removes the need for additional cooking fats or oils, leading to a healthier finished product.
The simultaneous contact roasting from both sides takes place between two stainless steel platens heated by oil. This gentler cooking process preserves flavour and succulence, while giving high uniformity in the finished product. The resulting appearance of the grilled products is similar to a pan-cooked product.
With this machine, products can either be browned, browned and fully-cooked, or cooked without browning.
