Innovating to stay ahead
The company focuses on R&D and innovation in the processing line in order to stay ahead in the market trends and maintain its relevance. He adds, “Our goal is to provide solutions to every food industry to operate in the increased market participation to achieve cost management benefits.”
Localization of firms through technology transfer
According to Kochhar, the contribution of Indian businesses to the top lines of global technology firms has grown over time. Localization through technology transfer, India-specific modifications, and local assembly benefits not just Indian food processors through lower capital costs, but also enhances employment in the sector.
He says, “In the future, we expect global technology corporations to manufacture in India for the rest of the globe. The technology area will increase in parallel with India's food processing industry. We see technology manufacturers benefiting from the ambition of creating export processing leaders in India."
At ANUTEC- International FoodTec India 2022
The KFPT team is very optimistic about their participation in ANUTEC in September this year and to exhibit their products before a wide range of stakeholders, visitors, and decision-makers in the F&B industry. Kochhar says, “ANUTEC is allowing us to grow our potential client base by meeting processors from across the country. It also helps us to grant exposure to a wider set of target audience and helps keep our brand afloat.”
KFPT will display its Elea Pulsed Electric Field (PEF) systems and the conveyors, mixers, and shakers, among others. Talking about the PEF system, he says, “Elea Pulsed Electric Field systems is a new technology that is used to precise and targeted electrical pulses to open the cell membrane (electroporation) of raw products. It is a clean, gentle, and targeted process that can be used to benefit a broad range of products. It enhances your production line, improves your product’s quality, and saves time and energy.”
He explains its benefits, "PEF opens the cells of fresh produce (electroporation), resulting in significant increases in yield, freshness, flavor, and nutritional preservation. Elea is used in applications like beetroot, yogurt, wine, tomato juice, syrup, broccoli, potato chips, freeze-dried fruits, and french fries.”
Kochhar shared that the KFPT team hopes to become essential to its customers by providing differentiated solutions and services in food processing to help them achieve their aspirations.
“We aim to offer a wide range of automated, functional, and quality machinery with good service for various food industries and to give customers the most compelling experience possible.
