Thermal process solutions provider, Holmach Ltd has installed a Roboqbo series 4 universal processing system at Mackie’s of Scotland. As one of the UK’s most popular take-home ice cream manufacturers, Mackie’s are committed to seeking new ideas and technologies for the continual development and enhancement of their award-winning products. 

Holmach was given the brief to provide a solution to facilitate the in-house manufacture of high quality fruit and sauce preparations at their Aberdeenshire factory. Holmach’s solution was a QBO70 cut-cook-cool vessel which delivers the 45kg batch production requirement. The Roboqbo delivers consistent products due to its recipe and process stage controls. Its ultra-fast processing times maximise product quality whilst retaining the natural characteristics of the ingredients.

Kirstin Mackie, Director spoke about their choice:’’Holmach’s consultative approach to our brief included product testing at the Roboqbo facility in Bologna, Italy. The machine took less than a day to install and commission which enabled Holmach to focus the remainder of their time training the team on the production of our products. Holmach stayed with us until we were confident with the full capabilities and operation of the machine and they continue to support us with every aspect following our investment’’.
