March 3, 2019
Reading Bakery Systems (RBS), a world-leading manufacturer of innovative baking and process systems, has announced it will partner with Incomec, a Belgium-based manufacturer of popping/puffing equipment, to supply popped snack systems within the United States.

In this partnership, Incomec will supply Pellex C+ and Cerex Processors, and RBS will supply the auxiliary equipment required, including conveyors, feeders, and seasoners. In addition to sales support, RBS will also provide installation and technical support for the systems.

Incomec offers two machines depending on final product to be produced. These machines create unique and healthy snacks: the Pellex C+ produces light, crunchy chip products, and the Cerex creates puffed cakes, cracker or biscuit type products.

Shawn Moye, Vice President of Global Sales, Reading Bakery Systems:

“We are excited to be partnering with Incomec to offer customers in the U.S. specialized equipment to create popped snacks.”

“These healthy snacks are becoming popular in the good-for-you segment, and these systems fit nicely in our range of baked snack production options for our customers.”
