The demand for complete potato processing lines has increased over the past few years and with an unprecedented amount of new lines installed including green-field projects. Worldwide, a lot of new potato processing lines are being built, not only by existing potato processors in Europe but also by new players in other parts of the world such as Argentina, China and Turkey.

 

Worker safety, product quality, maximizing yield, equipment reliability, sanitation and ease of maintenance are all top concerns, when it comes to conveyors targeting the potato processing industry. This is the first part of a two-part article, that analyzes the current situation for the segment of conveyor systems.

 

Recent research, coupled with the revival trend for potato varieties that have been more or less forgotten, has driven the industry to test a variety of new types of tubers. Each of them has its own characteristics which make it suitable for different processed products. PotatoBusiness asked Arnaud Jansse, applications engineer at Florigo Industry (tna solutions) what potato varieties are best suited for the creation of chips. 

 

The growing popularity of batch-fried chips have driven equipment producers to step up their game and provide processors with innovative solutions to accommodate this growing niche of premium products.
