Narrowing the focus to the world of formulated products, the increasing consumers’ preference for natural and high-quality products is driving the expansion of the sauces and condiments market. This tendency underscores the need for food manufacturers to be demanding in designing and building their production equipment to keep up with changing market trends.


CFT’s robust line-up of industrial cooking kettles is meticulously designed to transform raw ingredients into diverse, high-quality sauces and condiments, such as ketchup, mayonnaise, a variety of red and white sauces, baby foods, soups and jams, ensuring that manufacturers can meet market demands with precision and efficiency.
