TOMRA Food selected to partner global leader in fresh-frozen vegetables (Sentinel II)

Ardo is a family-owned business which has grown to a €1bn turnover through commitment to quality.

The company sources vegetables, herbs and fruit from 3,500 growers and processes 860,000 tonnes annually. One-quarter of all frozen vegetables in Europe come from Ardo, primarily for use in soups, ready-to-eat meals, and baby food. Ardo also supplies the house brands of almost all large European supermarkets, as well as large caterers for rest homes, hospitals and schools.

Ardo installed two TOMRA Sentinel II sorting machines as part of its ongoing objective to achieve "maximum output in both volume and quality".

Ardo’s Production Line Manager, Gillis Alliet, said: “Technology does not stand still, and that’s why we decided to purchase these new machines, because we always strive for a better product. The Sentinel II is a reliable machine, well designed for operator safety, and an enhancement for our line in terms of food safety. The machines are easy to set up, give good results, and have a really nice control display. The operators are happy to work with these machines - they use them like they use their mobile phones, intuitively. The Sentinel is easy to set up and gives the best results.”

Bjorn Thumas, Business Development Director at TOMRA Food, said: “Ardo is one of the food industry’s great success stories, not least because of the company’s dedication to innovation and quality. Ardo bought a TOMRA color sorter about 15 years ago, so the company knows from first-hand experience how effective and durable our machines are. By investing in newer technology, Ardo is once again well-positioned to stay ahead of the game.”
