Octopus Ace weighing and labelling systems for meat

Home Projects Octopus Ace weighing and labelling systems for meat


Hoogvliet started in January 2018 with the construction of a distribution centre, service centre, and central butchery in Bleiswijk, The Netherlands. The property occupies a total area of 72,000 m2. The Hoogvliet Centrale Slagerij (central butchery) is also part of this new building, which means that Hoogvliet has a modern central butchery that meets the highest quality standards, enables a very efficient process, and is ready for all current and future food safety standards.

VWS International recently installed seven weighing and labelling systems of the Octopus Ace type in the new Hoogvliet Central Butchery in Bleiswijk, The Netherlands. The lines with top and bottom printers supplied to Hoogvliet Centrale Slagerij are linked by VWS International to the software package of Hoogvliet's software supplier. In addition, a number of the seven lines supplied by VWS International are equipped with an extra dispenser for discount labels.

“This order again indicates that there is a demand from the market for our knowledge and flexibility. In addition to the quality of our products, we particularly distinguish ourselves in terms of flexibility and service,” says Patrick van der Vegt, CEO of VWS International as he looks back on the recent project at Hoogvliet.
