From raw bell pepper to fresh convenience product
Wim Heemskerk, the son of a real vegetable family, started the Heemskerk business in 1960 with the production and sale of bags of sliced soup vegetables. In 60 years, the company has grown into a modern company that ships some 3.5 to 4 million products to national and international retail and fast food chains every week. Following the increasing demand for fresh convenience products, Heemskerk invested in a new Sormac processing line for bell peppers. For the delivery of a high-quality end product it is not only essential to produce a high-quality bell pepper, but also that the membrane and seeds are properly removed.
Sormac’s bell pepper decorer PO-30 is characterised by its simple operation, hygienic design, long blade life and, above all, a perfectly cored product that is entirely membrane- and seed-free.
