Lutosa, a subsidiary of McCain Foods, is adding significant new capacity for frozen French fries to its production facility in Leuze-en-Hainaut, Belgium. Scheduled to start up in 2018, Lutosa’s new line is expected to increase production while improving efficiencies and profitability by meeting product quality objectives and increasing yields.

The optical inspection and material handling equipment for the line will be supplied by Key Technology and will include VERYX digital sorters.

“We appreciate the confidence that McCain has placed in all of our Key equipment and especially our new VERYX family of sorters. The variety of the systems we’re supplying to Lutosa showcases our complete range of capabilities and our exceptional ability to deliver complete, integrated solutions,” said Jack Ehren, president and CEO of Key Technology. “Most of the Key equipment going into the new line will be engineered and supplied from our two European operations in Belgium and the Netherlands.”
