Machinery supplier Interfood Technology has agreed to represent Spain-based oven manufacturer Salva in the UK.

Under the new partnership, Interfood’s bakery division will be able supply UK food manufacturers with Salva’s whole range of deck, rotary and fixed rack convection ovens, along with ancillary equipment including retarder provers, mixers and blenders.

The range has been developed to meet the requirements of retail craft bakeries and semi-industrial operations, and includes low-energy electric ovens that can deliver savings of up to £700 per year.

Salva’s modular ovens are custom built in the firm’s factory in San Sebastián, with the potential to configure individual decks for different applications.

The deck ovens feature ceramic heaters which hold the temperature, resulting in a loaf with a crusty finish all over, while the convection ovens use a heated and static air circulation system that achieves uniform baking by avoiding hot and cold spots.

Commenting on the new partnership, Interfood bakery division manager James Fitch said that the quality of Salva ovens was evident during a visit to its factory.

“Salva have focused on building well made, robust, energy efficient ovens, with a high quality appearance, and their experience and heritage in this area allows them to have a complete understanding of the requirements of the baking process,”​ Fitch added.

“Their range offers an oven for all product types. In recent years they have focused on adding a range of ancillary equipment to support their offerings in this area, to become a complete one stop shop for bakers. We are delighted to be working with Salva, their company spirit and commitment to putting customers first mirroring our own, and we look forward to discussing how we can offer bespoke solutions based around one of the most important pieces of equipment in the production of quality baked goods.”

Salva has been manufacturing ovens since 1943 and is now one of Europe’s 10 largest manufacturers.

Frank Teixeira, export area manager for UK and Ireland at Salva, commented: “We are thrilled to partner with Interfood, a company that shares our commitment to delivering top-notch solutions tailored to the needs of bakeries. Our ovens, built with precision and innovation, are designed to elevate the baking experience, ensuring consistency and quality every time. Together, we look forward to empowering bakeries across the UK with our state-of-the-art equipment.”
