Peerless Mixers – More Than Just Sliced Bread

hallmark-overall_WebPeerless has been in business for over 100 years. Most of that time has been spent mixing dough for bakeries who produce breads, crackers, bagels, cakes and cookies.  However, over the past few years, Peerless mixers have been finding their way into other types of food making facilities.

Peerless mixers are now in plants that mix different products such as pet food and treats, neutraceuticals and nutritional bars. With these adjacent  markets, Peerless is expanding our existing product line to serve different types of food manufacturing.

Pet Food picThe Pet Food Industry is one of the fastest growing markets and is expected to grow to US$74.8 billion by 2017.  Read more here! about the growing Pet Food Industry.

Today, more than ever, consumers are focused on pet food.   There are Pet Food Rating websites, Breeders Clubs that reward volume purchases and pet foods are now frequently labeled “Organic” , “Fresh” and “Premium”.   In the world of “Pet Parents” who want to provide the “Best for the Fur kid” –  “frozen”, “freeze dried” and “grain free” are advertising buzz words.  Peerless has a small presence in this market – our mixers mix pet treats that are cooled and extruded into chews, and are used in a few other pet food locations that use Peerless mixers for R&D projects.   This market is exploding, not only in the US, but around the world.  Keep an eye out for Peerless as we carefully expand in this industry!

Peerless Mixers Make Pet Treats Too!

It is not a surprise that pet food manufacturers use Peerless mixers too.  Here’s a new mixer that is on its way to Alabama to make jerky treats for dogs.   The interesting part about this mixer is that instead of having a bowl jacket that focuses on cooling the product this one actually steam cooks the product in the bowl while it’s mixing!  Pretty cool!

In the photo, you can see the piping that will be used to move and manage steam into this bowl jacket.   The steam in the bowl jacket will be used to actually steam cook the ingredients while they are being mixed.

This is just another great example of how Peerless technology can be used in other segments.
