Lincolnshire pizza press machinery available to SMEs

Lincolnshire’s small businesses in the food manufacturing industry can now access the latest in time saving technology as SUSTAIN Lincolnshire has acquired pizza press machinery, capable of making up to 400 pizza bases in just one hour.

Available for use at the University of Lincoln’s National Centre for Food Manufacturing, the Cuppone Pizzaform presses dough evenly in seconds, producing a pizza base that can be cooked quickly and at a lower temperature, saving energy, time and waste because each base is created in perfect uniformity.

Councillor Colin Davie, Executive Member for Economic Development at Lincolnshire County Council, says: “Acquiring the Cuppone Pizzaform will provide local food manufacturing SMEs the opportunity to use or test machinery that could increase their outputs and expand their business in a sustainable and cost effective way.

“The goal of SUSTAIN is to offer small and medium-sized businesses from all over Lincolnshire the tools and support needed to increase their competitive advantage and save money, all while safeguarding the environment and reducing the carbon footprint.”

The pizza press can produce bases measuring up to 300mm in diameter in varying thicknesses, as well possessing the versatility to also create flatbreads and chapattis.

Professor Val Braybrooks MBE, Dean of the National Centre for Food Manufacturing at the University of Lincoln, says: “This is a fantastic opportunity for us to further support local businesses and provide time-saving tools that are not only energy efficient and cost effective.

“The Cuppone Pizzaform is just one of 11 pieces of SUSTAIN machinery available at the National Centre for Food Manufacturing. Not only is this new pizza press available for eligible businesses to use, but we also have a humidity cabinet, blast chiller and Hobart oven.”
