Food industry

Food production is essential as food is a basic need. But food also has consequences for our habitat and our environment. Besides eating sustainable food and wasting less, careful and efficient production also contributes to a better and healthy living environment. The food industry is very much aware of that, and conveyor belts play an important role in transporting the food.

Conveyor belt for the food industry

At LBS, we have been developing and supplying efficient and sustainable conveyor belts for the processes and machines in the food industry for decades. In doing so, we supply the right conveyor belts in combination with the right components:

  • Baking industry 

    • In the baking industry, it's important that products (such as dough) don't stick to the belt. By using a diamond profile, the product comes away from the conveyor belt more easily.
    • It's important that, for some products, due consideration is given to the choice of belt type. Oil and grease resistance play a major role in this as well.
  • Chocolate industry

    • In the chocolate industry, temperatures play a significant role because it's important that the belt can withstand differences in temperature.
    • It's also important that, in most instances, flat belts are used in the chocolate industry. This makes it more ideal for the product to come off or get scraped off, and it's easier to keep clean. 
    • It's important that, for some products, due consideration is given to the choice of belt type. Oil and grease resistance play a major role in this as well.
  • Meat, fish and poultry processing industry

    • In the meat, fish and poultry processing industry, it's important the moisture and grease that is released from these products can be drained well. In that regard, the choice of belt type is important.
    • It's important that, for some products, due consideration is given to the choice of belt type. Oil and grease resistance play a major role in this as well.
  • Fruit and vegetable industry

    • In the fruit and vegetable industry, gauze belts are used more frequently due to the rinsing of the products. Due to the rinsing of the products, a lot of water is involved so it's important that moisture drains well. 
  • Cheese/dairy industry

    • Apart from hygiene (foodgrade) properties, it's important that the conveyor belts in the dairy industry also have the right force-elongation ratio to let the processes run in the most optimal way. Under heavy loading of the conveyor belt and with an eye on preventing product loss, the choice is often made for a belt with wavy edges. This is to keep the products in position and minimise the risk of damage for products such as cheese.
    • It's important that, for some products, due consideration is given to the choice of belt type. Oil and grease resistance play a major role in this as well.

Besides that, there are also companies in the processing of packaged and unpackaged food and production companies of, for example, salads and fries. For these companies, the aspects of food safety and hygiene are of major importance, which is why we have a high product quality in our range that takes into account the constant up-to-date market-specific hygiene properties.

Food safety conveyor belts

Our belts comply with all demands in the area of food safety. In that way, we contribute significantly to the food safety in the entire chain of the food industry with our conveyor belts. The belts of LBS Conveyor Belts comply with the international standards such as the EU, FDA, 3-A and USDA regulations. Including the 1935/2004/EC, 2023/2006/EC and 10/2011/EC certifications.

Transport systems in the food industry

For the transport of food we develop various conveyor belts for transport systems, including:

In addition, we offer various options for the assembly of the conveyor belt. Food safety, consistency, durability and waste reduction are critical factors. We understand the importance of continuity and know how costly downtime can be. That's why we want to develop the best belts for the food industry.

together we create our daily fresh food

We develop the belt together with the customer. When it comes to product varieties and special needs, we are also happy to help you select the right conveyor belt for your machine and process. In doing so, quality, stability, reliability and good service are of extremely high priority for us. Due to this close cooperation with our customers and years of experience in this industry, we successfully create the best solution for our customers.
