In north-eastern Motala, Sweden, Mixum’s state-of-the-art production facility prepares, among other things, quinoa salads, pasta, and eggs for Picadeli’s salad bars, which can be found in food stores in Sweden, Finland, Denmark, and Central Europe. Picadeli are currently the largest supplier of cooked pasta and pasta mixes on the market. In a single year, they produce no less than 3000 tonnes of cooked pasta, which corresponds to 150 large trucks.
Care for the environment is a strong priority for Mixum, and the company has introduced a large number of production-related measures to decrease their impact on the environment.
– The industrial production of bulgur and pasta dishes involves the use of large quantities of fat, which is disposed of along with wastewater. It is for this reason that we built an entirely new facility with new machinery, which became operational at the end of November last year, to deal with the problem says CEO Magnus Frantzén.
In 2020, Hydria Water delivered a Drum Screen RS with a horizontally mounted drum to filter solid particles from the process water, and a conveyor for dewatering the particles. Mixum chose to use Hydria Water’s services on the basis of a recommendation.
