Due to high labor costs and employee management issues, the client, specialized in making Chinese food, started to look for a food processing line for making fried and steamed dumplings. A friend recommended ANKO Food Machine Company to the client. With dumpling making equipment operates automatically, the client is able to increase their production amount with better management. In addition, AFD-888 with CE certificate meets the client's necessary requirement- food safety and hygiene. It is the most important reason that the client chooses ANKO.
Vegetarian foods are the client's primary products. The manual production no longer meets the growing demands. For that reason, automation is what they need to boost capacity and profits.
The client is an owner of a hotel chain in Tunisia. Speaking of cooking, their insistence on food has gained favor with visitors and got great comments on some travel websites. The calzone, both its recipe and ingredients, is handmade by their chef. As spending holidays in the hotel, tourists can buy a portable calzone at a concession stand and enjoy it as leisurely walking around. Due to the widespread reputation of the dish, they decided to buy a machine to meet the growing demand or the future launch of new menu in their restaurants. Then, the gourmet calzones could be produced in their central kitchen and distributed to each restaurant, which not only maintains product quality, but also cuts the labor cost.
The client runs an eatery next to a school. Two people in total have to be in charge of all works. Due to the fact that more and more people patronized the eatery, the labor shortage prompted him to develop machine production. However, high productivity was not his priority so that he ordered a set of HLT-660 series, which is within budget and enough to achieve his hourly capacity around 5000 pieces. After purchasing the machine, they prepare ingredients in the morning and then arrange production around noon, cooking after taking an order, which can satisfy a large demand during peak hours. (Note: HLT-660 series is no longer available. Please contact us for the updated HLT-700 series.)
The client started his business by opening a restaurant in Netherlands, serving dim sum dishes. He studied the Dutch flavor and healthy recipes to catch customer's heart. With the increasing popularity of dim sum, he began running a food factory. As seeking food equipment, he knew that ANKO has years of experience in the dim sum making machinery and provides customization in accordance with individual needs and factory planning. Therefore, he decided to cooperate with ANKO.
The company provides frozen food for numerous hotels and villages in Cairo, Egypt. Consumers can also buy their products online, in supermarkets or deli. Selling products in multi sales channel had leaded to an increasing demand, so the company's owner, via a dealer, had been looking for a supplier who can offer an automated production solution. He was satisfies with ANKO's HLT-700XL model after conducting a test run at ANKO Taiwan headquarters. However, when the machine was commissioned in Egypt, dough was inelastic and couldn't be formed by the machine. The causes might be the characteristics of dough, the weather, or the effect of temperature and humidity. Fortunately, our engineer, who has many years' experience, immediately found the problem and adjusted the dough ingredients. Afterwards, the dough could be processed by the sambousek making machine normally.
To increase capacity and standardize products are the main issues that drive food manufacturers and restaurant owners, including this client, to switch from manual to automatic production. The dumplings served in the company's restaurant chains were made by hand in its own central kitchen. Consumers really liked the handmade dumplings, but 'sold out" was the most important issue with which the company had to deal. Moreover, the size, weight, and taste of handmade dumplings might vary from batch to batch. Using a dumpling maker can both improve capacity and achieve standardization. Therefore, he chose us as the solution provider for the automatic production of dumplings. He also wanted to serve deep-fried dumplings and steamed dumplings to satisfy customers' appetite after increasing capacity.
Customers want to increase production capacity by moving from manual to automatic production. However, sometimes machine-made dumplings cannot meet their required shape. Either customers have to give up having handmade pleats and delicate patterns or they stay in manual production. Dumpling machine has been ANKO's bestseller. We have received many inquiries about dumpling shapes. "Do you have other more natural patterns?", "Do you have pinching patterns?", "Do you have other pinching patterns?", "Why is the machine-made dumplings not mouth-watering?" and so on. To response these demands, we started a series of development processes.
The company owns a Cantonese restaurant serving handmade dim sum. With business growth, a lack of supply and problems with staff management had come out. It took an average of three months for a new employee to become fully productive. Therefore, the client started finding an automatic solution. At first, the client knew ANKO by searching from the Internet and visiting IBA Munich, which is a trade show held in Germany every two years, but he didn't contact us until the next IBA Munich. He placed an order without having a machine trial because he thought ANKO had considerable experience in food machinery. He purchased an HLT-700XL Multipurpose Filling and Forming Machine and an EA-100KA Forming Machine. With these two machines, he could make a wide variety of dishes, such as dumpling, steamed dumpling, crystal dumpling, fun guo, soup dumpling, increase production capacity and decrease labor costs. Moreover, when ANKO's engineer conducted on-side commissioning, our engineer helped solve his problem that soup dumplings had no soup.
