For retailers large and small, wrapping meat as an in-store process has always been a challenge. Due to varying weights and sizes of meat and trays, it can be difficult to efficiently package items while maintaining a high level of quality that customers expect. Fortunately, METTLER TOLEDO has designed a product that can do both. The Commander, new since 2007, has raised the bar on automatic wrapping systems and has elevated retailers to new heights.
Take Phelps IGA, Inc., for example, a medium-sized retailer in the Midwest. A long-time user of METTLER TOLEDO equipment, the time had come for employees at Phelps to replace their outdated equipment. When searching for a replacement model for their older EXACT equipment, footprint size was a key factor in their consideration. Built over 30 years ago, their meatroom is long and narrow in shape, making it difficult to install most of today’s wrappers. Fortunately, the Distributor was able to recommend a METTLER TOLEDO product that would fit the bill: the Commander Automatic Wrapper. And the employees at Phelps couldn’t be more pleased. In the words of their Backroom Manager, Justin, "the Commander is a breath of fresh air."
