HEKO in the food industry
Industrial production of food is necessary in order to supply the ever-increasing world population with high-quality andaffordable food. The special responsibility of the food industry regarding hygiene and health means strict requirements for the conveyor technology which is used. This includes the use of materials with food approval for all components which come into direct contact with the food. The cleaning products that are continuously used to clean the conveyor systems and are often aggressive represent a further extraordinary challenge. Via system manufacturers, HEKO supplies suitable chains, sprockets and conveyor components to the food industry – e.g. in chicken abattoirs or ice cream production.
