The PremiumFormer allows the production of four types of burger on a single system

The jury commented on the PremiumFormer: "The PremiumFormer from Marel, a new generation of burger former for red meat, allows the production of four types of burger on a single system and up to 6,000 cycles per hour with a single operator."

Marel’s full burger processing lines help you create any type and any volume of burger patty.

This award not only recognizes the PremiumFormer’s unique, state-of-the-art qualities, it also highlights the Marel culture of innovation and excellence.

Innovation and Excellence

The PremiumFormer is a unique solution for forming fresh burgers, which ensures quality, flexibility and consistency. The system offers various texture and shape possibilities, always preserving the product quality after cooking. Thanks to its small footprint, it fits perfectly into any production facility.

Through the years, burgers have been going through various generations of burgers types. There’s the standard burger, which is typically pressed and without a clear fiber orientation. Then you have the home-style and tender fresh burger, where the fibers are oriented vertically. In a butcher burger, fibers are interlaced, which creates angel hair burgers.

Each burger type will give the consumer a specific eating experience and taste.
