Kubba Food Making Equipment

When the client contacted ANKO, kubba was a new food to us. However, we've found the similarity between moon cake and kubba. (Moon cake is a traditional cake from Asia.) "Why don't you design food processing equipment that is capable of producing similar but different foods rather than just one?" said the ANKO engineering team. Thus, ANKO's R&D team developed kubba making machinery that can make stuffed foods including pastries, dumplings, steamed buns, falafels, etc. When you buy multi-purpose food making equipment which can produce more than one kind of food, it's a win-win deal.
