With Moderate Cold Comes Great Freedom
How to avoid night shifts and supply shortages – all while saving energy, too
“We were able to significantly reduce night shifts – and on Saturdays no bread is processed at all,” says Erwin Schalk, explaining the most obvious advantages of the system. This means that if you bake like this consistently, you can offer your production staff the daytime working hours they so desperately want as well as a 5-day week! In today’s world, that’s a huge advantage for many reasons.
The flexibility to be able to react to peaks in demand over several days with virtually no delay is particularly beneficial for Mr. Schalk. In his particular case, having this flexibility is not only great for his four outlets with traditional delivery business, but also for a very particular group of customers: wine taverns, for which this region of Austria is famous. Although products of his bakery, such as bread by the metre (4 kg rolls), are extremely popular with the many wine taverns in the surrounding area, their very irregular opening hours and thus daily changing orders used to make it difficult for him to plan.
The entire range stays fresher for longer – thanks to bakery refrigeration
“And what about hygiene?”, you may ask. Truly the best, according to Erwin Schalk. Because in the MIWE smartfresh, an evaporator, in combination with a specific blue light (with a wavelength clearly outside the harmful UV-C range) with a special arrangement, ensures a reliable environment in which mould growth is strongly inhibited and significantly delayed.
He has not had to do any cleaning with vinegars or put on any special clothing, he says, and there hasn’t been a single instance of mould in a year and a half since it was installed.
How does MIWE smartfresh work?
Clear energy advantage compared to alternatives
After thorough testing, they both clearly came to the conclusion that MIWE smartfresh was the better system, says Schalk.
That’s exactly how he sees it today.
