HB Grandi purchases a new Valka Cutter for Redfish portions with capacity upto 180 fillets a minute
Valka and HB Grandi recently signed an agreement for a new Valka Cutter and a Portion grader for Grandi’s Redfish processing plant. The Cutter machine has a single lane but allows for feeding the fillets in two side by side rows. Consequently, the capacity is double allowing for throughput up to 180 fillets a minute. “The first Valka Cutter was a development project between Valka and HB Grandi that started roughly six years ago. The machine has been running full time on shifts and now the time has come to increase the capacity and automate even more.”, says Gisli Kristjansson Production Manager at HB Grandi Reykjavik. “We find much interest in the market for bone free redfish portions and this investment is an effort to expand our product portfolio and meet that demand.”, adds Gisli.
