That reality – and subsequent changing market demands – saw food ingredients company A S Harrison develop a vegan ingredients portfolio.
One component of that has been vegetable and nut-based fat powders.
While not limited to vegan products, the range is a perfect replacement for traditional cream, butter and/or vegetable liquid oils. In addition to providing texture, creaminess and mouthfeel, they are convenient to process, soluble, dispersible, provide extended shelflifeandstability.

Enmin’s latest modular conveyor system was developed to meet industry demand for more flexible and cost effective equipment. Enmin GM Anthony Gallaher writes.
FOOD and ingredient manufacturing is a fast moving industry, which means equipment needs can change rapidly, often at great cost to businesses. We recognised a need for equipment that could be added to, extended and modified over time, as a company’s needs evolved.
Mi-CON (Modular Incline Conveyor System) has the key benefit of being modular, so it eliminates equipment redundancy and can expand
with business growth. The flexible modular design coupled with a range of standard parts and components, ensures suitability for multiple applications.
It is the only conveyor system on the market that can be delivered flat packed, allowing fast and cost-effective delivery and simple installation by the customer’s maintenance team.
It can also be delivered to the customer partially complete or fully complete for quicker installation and commissioning.
