12 Tons of Doner Kebab Meat a Day Robust Bench and Floor Scales are up to the Task

Cede Döner Royal GmbH, founded in 1993 by owner Zeynel Demir, has become the largest kebab production plant in Switzerland in the space of just a few years. The vastly expanding operation uses robust METTLER TOLEDO scales with IP69k protection.

Online PR News – 21-July-2010 – – In 1993, company owner Zeynel Demir founded the company Cede Döner Royal GmbH. “Food safety is of utmost importance in our operations. Our customers expect high-quality products and they need to be able to rely on us as a partner”, says Torsten Goebel. He continues, “METTLER TOLEDO supports us here by offering scales that are suitable for use in hygienically sensitive areas.”

Hygienisches Design geeignet für Hochdruckreinigung
Production at Cede Döner Royal runs in line with the requirements of Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP), Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) and the International Food Standard (IFS). Several stainless steel 4x9 series bench scales are used in this hygienically sensitive area. This range of scales is characterized by its robust, hygienic design. The open design of the weighing platform, along with the load cell with IP69k protection, allows simple cleaning, even with high-pressure water.

Seamless traceability
As a company with IFS Higher Level Status, Royal Döner is not only required to use equipment that can be easily and efficiently cleaned (IFS Version 5: 4.14.2) and is regularly calibrated and maintained (IFS Version 5: 5.4), it must also guarantee seamless traceability (IFS Version 5: 4.16.1 KO criterion). METTLER TOLEDO also has ideal solutions for this.

When handling incoming goods, raw materials such as condiments and meat are weighed on PUA579 ((USA: PUA679)) low profile floor scales (maximum capacity 1500 kg) with an IND449 weighing terminal. The weighing terminal is directly connected to Royal Döner’s ERP system via an Ethernet interface, which records the weighing data and generates barcode labels for the incoming goods.

Torsten Goebel confirms this: “The user-friendliness, IP protection and robustness of the scales fulfill all of our requirements. Using the complete package from METTLER TOLEDO, which includes service and a DKD calibration certificate, has been a thoroughly positive experience for us.”
