From potato products to pasta, from sandwich spreads to savory snacks, and from salads to desserts: Wernsing Feinkost GmbH makes it all! Their wide range of high-quality food products in many categories makes Wernsing Feinkost GmbH one of the largest food service suppliers in Germany. The company is part of the Wernsing Food Family. In total, over 4,000 people work here. Of these 4,000, more than 1,150 work at the Addrup-Essen site.
During the production of its potato products, Wernsing Feinkost GmbH has been using optical sorting machines to assess the quality of the potatoes for many years. For a long time, it used so-called ‘free-fall’ optical sorting machines, where bad potatoes were ejected. Since the sorting quality of the machines was not high enough, a manual inspection was always carried out by several employees. However, due to rising personnel costs, labor shortages, and increasingly stringent quality requirements, Wernsing decided that they wanted to fully automate the entire sorting process without compromising on quality. That is how they came to us.
