As food & beverage processors drive toward higher productivity and expanded product offerings, food safety remains critical to success — and can impact the entire organization.
Bakery manufacturers know that controlling dough temperature in the mixer is one of the principal challenges in bakery operations.
High-efficiency cryogenic chilling processes boost productivity and streamline food processing operations while reducing costs. At the same time, they help maintain proper food temperatures throughout plants, which is essential for food quality, preservation and food safety. Download this whitepaper for an introduction to food processing utilizing cryogenic food-grade gases – either carbon dioxide (CO2) or nitrogen (N2).
When it comes to cryogenic chilling, processors may be better starting at the bottom. The bottom of their mixer, that is. Strategically injecting cryogens such as liquid nitrogen (N2) or carbon dioxide (CO2) directly into the bottom of a mixture chills food faster, more effectively and at a lower cost than other cooling methods.
Are you challenged by increasing input costs, inconsistent quality, or reduced output? Protein processors have valuable options for identifying and solving the root causes of a number of common yield problems.

Rapid chilling provided by Messer's Combo Chiller inhibits bacterial growth that can compromise food quality and safety. The Combo Chiller supports various types of bins including cardboard and plastic.
Messer's Snow Dispenser is the solution for processors who need instant chilling of perishables and boxed meat, poultry and seafood products, directly in their packing boxes.
Messer’s Automated Box Chilling system is the solution for processors who need instant, on-demand CO₂ chilling of perishables including boxed meat, poultry and seafood products, directly in their packing boxes.
The dry ingredient chilling system from Messer is designed to pneumatically cool conveyed products such as flour, sugar, cocoa, etc. When used for flour in the baking industry, it produces a consistent, top-quality product from every batch of dough.
The KRYOJECTOR® bottom injector from Messer is a patented cryogenic bottom injection system working with either liquid nitrogen or liquid carbon dioxide. Wherever fast and efficient chilling without additional process equipment is needed, the KRYOJECTOR injector is the answer.
Messer's Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) is suited for the production and packaging of rye bread, sweet bakery products, and pies. It eliminates the risk of excess carbon dioxide – the cause of ‘ice melt’ – and offers the ability to balance the concentration with nitrogen.
Messer‘s Modified Atmosphere Packaging brings you a full range of tailored solutions to meet the packaging requirements for meat and poultry.
Utilizing Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) and the right gas mixture can extend the shelf life by at least a few days and possibly up to two weeks in raw packaged
fish such as cod, flounder, plaice, haddock, and whiting compared to packaging in traditional atmospheres similar to that of air.
The consumer is putting the dairy industry under ever-increasing pressure. On the one hand, they demand high-quality dairy foods with long shelf life; on the other, they
expect value for money. For food processors, the solution is an efficient production process that offers gentle handling and rapid processing.
Consumers demand high-quality fresh fruit and vegetables all year round. Careful handling supports hygiene and product integrity throughout the supply chain. For growers and food producers, the solution to meet these demands lies in highly sophisticated, efficient production and packaging processes that preserve taste, appearance, food safety, and value.
The Messer Cross-Flow Tunnel is a powerful and economical cryogenic freezer. This patented technology utilizes not only cryogenic gases but also high-velocity crossflow cryogenic gases to achieve rapid chilling and freezing of food products. The freezer is designed for the cooked and prepared food market.
The Messer Wave Freezer is a multi-purpose freezer which can efficiently freeze individually quick-frozen (IQF) as well as trayed products. The flexible and versatile technology, which employs cryogenic medium, combines a standard tunnel with a mechanical system that agitates the product as it is conveyed through the freezer.
Strategically injecting cryogens such as liquid nitrogen (N2) or carbon dioxide (CO2) directly into the bottom of a mixture chills food faster, more effectively and at a lower cost than other cooling methods. Bottom injection systems may deliver between 20 and 40 percent more chilling efficiency than alternate chilling approaches, as well as help processors improve production, appearance, and yield.
At Messer we comply with product and service quality based on requirements determined by our customers, our own quality standards and by regulatory authorities.
This policy is integral to the Messer strategy and is periodically reviewed by the Executive Committee. Messer is committed to the implementation of this HSE policy.
This is to certify that the Management System of Messer North America, Inc. has been approved by LRQA to the following standards: ISO 9001:2015.
The Community Right-to-Know provisions help increase the public's knowledge and access to information on chemicals at individual facilities, their uses, and releases into the environment. States and communities, working with facilities, can use the information to improve chemical safety and protect public health and the environment.
“The new chilling system definitely makes the job easier, and our operators like the new control panel.”
“The Messer Food team worked closely with my management on implementation, often after hours to minimize downtime, right down to training all our employees on the new technology."
See four real-life examples of how protein processors are leveraging new techniques to achieve tangible gains in production throughput, efficiency, cost and product quality in a variety of product categories, including pork, chicken, beef, meat alternatives, and IQF products.
“Normal” may never be the same for food processors. The health of employees, how to engage them and their general welfare – on top of food safety, sanitation and hygiene practices – have been brought to the forefront because of COVID-19. Download this new checklist to learn how you can take specific measures to meet employee concerns, enhanced quality protocols and consumer demand through times of uncertainty.
A reliable cryogenic freezer is a critical part of any food plant. An existing freezer that lacks quality parts or malfunctions can lead to frequent shutdowns, higher maintenance and unnecessary costs. Download this checklist to potentially prevent future failures of your freezing technology, evaluate current options and choose the right fit for your plant.
Food production is a multi-faceted operation, extending beyond preparation and cooking to overall plant operations, business practices and the supply chain.
