Watch OAL's Development Chef and Managing Director discuss how the OAL APRIL Robotics Food Processing technology can unlock NPD (New Product Development) Opportunities in food factories.
Let's look at food technology now Chris, it hasn't really, you've been around a few years, I have, nothing's really changed in the way we make these products and at some point, technology has to be able to drive a higher level of change. Now, this is a step change in terms of what we're looking at here. Why are we going to want to engage in this? Well, you need to engage with this technology because it's how far can we push the boundaries.There are a lot of people out there starting to use Steam Infusion. And, just by using that, they're producing products that can't be manufactured any other way. We've seen manufacturers out there try and fail in mimicking Steam Infusion products. Once you start looking into a system like this, it can go so much further. We can produce in the dark for any light sensitive products, we can be producing in modified atmospheres. So if we take the whole of the all the recipes that we can produce, what you're basically telling me, we've just, at the moment, we've just got a pie of the circle. And, technology helps us widen that pie. Exactly. And, the way the system works is we can add so much more as even when it might not be invented yet, it's a case of we can bolt it in and carry on so much easier than... So, technology gives us a wider product range and with this type of thing, it's scaled to match the actual demand that's coming from the consumer. Talking about recipes that have more vibrant colours, less fat and such like, and less process, it's almost like making food at home isn't it Chris. It is, it's as you would in your saucepan. This is just a slightly larger saucepan. And, everything you do at home, the way that you cook by lifting up your saucepan, taking it to your mixers, or, adding more ingredients, we can do it exactly here, we can mimic it perfectly.
