Hummus Packaging Machines
July 31, 2013
Hummus is a rapidly growing, multi-million dollar industry and is becoming
more ubiquitous in the grocery store. Chickpea production, the main
ingredient of hummus, is an industry valued at $115.5 million a year in
2012, according to the USDA. The food category dominated by hummus sales
grew by 11% from 2011, and up 25% from the year before that, research
conducted by the Information Resources Inc shows.
To meet the growing demand for hummus production, Pack Line, the industry
leader in packaging machinery, has several hummus packaging machines to meet
any small business and large corporation needs.
All of our machines are custom-made to your specifications. Take for example
our PXM servo-driven fully automatic linear filling and sealing machine. One
of our biggest models, it can handle 80 to 500 units per minute. In
addition, its best use is for multicomponent products with a capacity of up
to eight lanes and eight fillers. If you want to catch up with the wave of
experimental additions to hummus, like adding red pepper or garlic, this is
the machine that can handle it.
For a small business looking to expand, the PXG pneumatic-driven
fully-automatic filling, sealing and capping machine is a good option. It is
capable of producing upwards of 25 to 100 units per minute. An alternative
is the NB-070 fully automatic filling and sealing machine, which has a
rotary platform and is driven by an analogue engine. It can produce up to 30
to 60 units per minute.
Our mid-range machine, the NBM servo-driven fully automatic rotary filling
and sealing machine, can handle up to 30 to 120 cups per minute. Its sealing
machines have a smooth index or driven movement of 12-positions for its
rotary platform. The cup filling and sealing machine is designed for up to
four lanes, and has a capacity of up to four filling units.
All the machines’ fillers can be fitted with a CIP cleaning system. They can
also be controlled by a waterproof PLC control system allowing the customer
to regulate the machine as a whole or through individual components.
We bring hummus to the shelves through our partnerships with industry
leaders in packaging design. Walking through the aisles of the supermarket,
you might pass by the refrigerated foods section and find a sea of
red-rimmed or green-rimmed containers. A closer examination reveals hummus,
seen through the clear top packaging. On the labels are big brands like
Sabra, Tribe, Good Neighbors, Garden Fresh, Whole Foods and Wal-mart. That is a glimpse of Pack Line’s ingenuity.
Where hummus is, Pack Line is too.
