Efficient and highy automated solutions for vegetarian and vegan products.
Highly productive solutions for vegetarian and vegan products.

Slice, transport & package plant-based products efficiently.

Vegetarian sausage and vegan cheese products have long since ceased to be an emerging trend, but have already arrived in our society and in the refrigerators of the population. Retailers and consumers are therefore continuously demanding more product diversity. However, processing is complex: the consistency and texture of the products made from alternative proteins are demanding and represent a different, individual challenge at every step of the process. With our line solutions, you can master the daily challenges of your production of vegetarian and vegan products.

Let yourself be inspired by our processing solutions for plant-based meat, sausage and cheese alternatives: from hygienic product preparation, weight-accurate slicing and automated infeeding to the desired presentation in the packaging.

Listen, understand, implement: together with Weber to the perfect solution for plant-based products.
As diverse and unique as your plant-based products.

Perfect product presentation at Point of Sale.

Sustainable and safe forms of packaging.

In addition to the appealing presentation at the point of sale, the protection and minimum shelf life of your sliced vegetarian and vegan products are particularly important success factors. For you, this means more profitability and sustainability, for end consumers it means more food safety and taste.

Our experts will advise you on all topics concerning the design of your packaging as well as on the choice of the appropriate packaging material.

Naturally different foils can be processed on one machine, to ensure that your line is also equipped for future requirements.
