Crisps brand increases output

New machines for US manufacturing space.

FRYING and packaging machines have been upgraded by American crisps brand Mister Bee which was acquired by the West Virginia Potato Chip Company over a decade ago.

Following a redesign of its manufacturing space, a new TNA Robag 3ci vertical form filling and sealing machine has been installed which Mister Bee President Mary Anne Ketelsen says has vastly improved output.

In a recent interview with 'Snacks' she said: "Previous machinery could only run 20-25bpm, whereas now my new TNA machines, I can run 100-115bpm."
