Automatic dispensing unit installed at Buteressence

Buteressence has gone operational with the recently installed High Capacity Dispensing Unit for the production of liquid flavouring concentrates. This after a lengthy period of design, preparation and trial. Together with our Dutch partner Vanwyk – a world leader in high accuracy liquid dispensing equipment for the flavours and fragrances industry – we have introduced a new way of producing, based on proven technology. Important to respond to the increasing demand for more complex and distinct flavours.

We have the capacity now to automatically dispense 400 of our most frequently used raw materials into concentrated ‘flavour hearts’. These are further processed and extended into our final commercial flavours. At this stage we focused on automizing our complex smaller manual weighments.

Ton Toben, managing director of our company referred to it as “a significant investment to improve our efficiency and quality, whilst maintaining the flexibility in our production that our customers are accustomed to. An important milestone in our ongoing automization project to make Buteressence even more future-proof”.

Kosher production

Buteressence expands its possibilities for Kosher production.

The interest in Kosher food is growing rapidly around the world. And with this, the requirements for Kosher certified food ingredients and other additives. In response to the needs of our customers and their clients, we have obtained a Kosher year certificate for the production of our liquid flavours. This after an intensive period of preparation and collaboration with the Chief Rabbinate of Holland.

Since the 15th of May we have adapted our production facilities for liquid flavours in such a way that all deliveries are either Kosher Parve or Kosher Dairy certified without actual rabbinic supervision, provided the composition of the flavours allows for this. The new set-up we have enables us to supply our customers with kosher certified flavours, combined with the required flexibility.

Our Kosher year letters can be downloaded from the quality page on our website. From now on the product information sheets state whether the flavour of reference is suitable for Kosher foods or not.

The preparations to include the production of our powder flavours on our Kosher year certificate have already started. We will keep you informed on its progress.

We hope you can appreciate this improvement of our services.

Visiting interesting places and regional markets is often done whilst enjoying nice warm temperatures. We have learned from last editions that the temperature can rise as well at the Intrafood fair. To provide our guests with the much needed refreshment, we have developed several thirst-quenching lemonades inspired on these markets for this event. Next to this, we offer delicious dressings for tasting at our salad bar. Please visit us at our stand D17-D20 where we happily explain you how our flavours can make a difference to your products.
