The April edition of Snack Food & Wholesale Bakery quotes Egan Food Technologies' Mike Bond in two articles, where he discusses how the company is meeting the industry's need for affordable bar forming equipment.
In "Extrusion Equipment for Unique and Healthy Snacks," Bond explains how they've been able to help customers better automate their extrusion processes through auxiliary equipment and modular production lines.
Extrusion is just one method for manufacturing snack and health food bars. For recipes with more fragile ingredients, slab forming is the preferred process. Until recently, most slab forming lines were out of reach financially for most startups. Bond explains how Egan Food Technologies was able to engineer an affordable, entry-level slab forming line in "Healthy Snack Bar Customization Drives Category Sales."
