Foodmate develops label and glue remover

Foodmate, a food and meat equipment manufacturing and service company, has developed a label remover for crates, totes and boxes.

The label remover is equipped with a specially-developed, high-pressure spraying system that removes the labels and the glue. It can be adapted to existing washing lines.

“Label removing has become a huge issue in the food processing industry,” Foodmate owner David Hazenbroek said.

“The main problem is not the label itself, but the glue attached to the crate. After a well-known Dutch poultry processor contacted us to find an answer to this major problem, Foodmate formed a research team and developed a solution within a couple of months.”
