Forthglade expands with Lagarde technology

Forthglade has joined forces with Lagarde to create a processing system that would handle particulates delicately.

Having chosen to invest further in the manufacturing site, Forthglade now operate 4 x 6 basket 1400mm Lagarde retorts as their processing technology of choice.

The reasoning behind the decision relates back to the core advantages of Lagarde’s machinery.

Lagarde’s retorts process delicate products and flavours to a high degree of accuracy.

Lagarde’s patented Samantha PC interface is able to deliver an identical process for batches to between =/-0.2 Celsius and 15mBar.

Secondly, the Samantha system itself represents a new user-friendly technology.

Samantha’s latest update includes the ability to control the machines remotely via a tablet or smartphone, and to designate different permission levels for users.

The results of each process are automatically encrypted into FDA friendly formats and stored for up to ten years, for long-term accountability.

Joint managing director Chris Brooking had this to say about the contribution that investing in Lagarde retorts has made to the business:

“The Lagarde retorts provide reliable, energy efficient and accurate processing of our products. We have continued to invest with Lagarde partly because of this, but also because of the backup and support given to us by Holmach, comprehensive servicing and training that has meant we can keep up with ever increasing demand”.
