Primary Produce


Keeping it tasty

New Zealand’s economy is heavy dependent on agriculture which includes primary produce.  At Viking we are passionate about helping meat and poultry companies move their product from arrival through to the final product.

Our experience and product range is able to support the multiple applications that occur within a processing facility.

Food Safety is the only choice

With growing consumer demand and awareness surrounding eating safe food, the need to produce food with no contaminants is a critical factor in the success of a food brand today.

We can assist in controlling your identified contamination hazards through specifying, installing and maintaining the right conveyor systems to cope with the specific food safety requirements.

Protecting your brand

If your food is safe you can be confident that your business will be safe.

Choosing the right Conveyor System

At Viking Conveyor we will work with you to establish the specific requirements of your conveyor belt system taking into account key questions such as:

  • What products are processed on the belt?
  • What process is the belt involved in; heating, cooling, washing, cutting, deboning, cooking?
  • How can the conveyor belt assist with your HACCP?
  • How will the belt be physically arranged – is there an incline or decline?
  • What are your cleaning requirements?
  • What are your production optimisation targets?

Characteristics of the belt

There is such a diverse range of conveyor belts available for the processing of primary produce. At Viking Conveyor we have access to a comprehensive range of belts. Our service includes taking the time to understanding your operation and making sure the characteristics of the belt will be suitable.

Key characteristics to consider are:

  • How easy is the belt to clean?
  • Is it easy to maintain?
  • What is it impact resistance?
  • Does it require side flexing?
  • Does it need to be non-stick and reduce friction?
  • What is the belt cutting resistance?
  • What tensile strength is required?
  • What belt profile /surface is required e.g. smooth or chain?
