Food & Beverage Industry
Precise System Solutions for Hygienic Processes with LEWA

Process integrity, recipe compliance, and product reliability are basic prerequisites in food technology. Hygienic aspects and cleanability play a central role: The process must remain closed and contamination of the process media must be prevented in every phase of production.

LEWA supplies precise system solutions in the manner in which they are required in the food and beverage industry for processes such as homogenization, mixing, and filling.
