Reliable conveyor belts customized for any food production process

Since 2013, Tribelt supports McCains production facilities throughout North-west Europe with tailor made conveyor belts for their French fries production.

Assistance through the entire process

Annually, Tribelt supplies McCain Foods with conveyor belts that brings the fresh potatoes from station to station for refining and eventually ends up in bags of frozen French fries, delivered to food stores and supermarkets across Europe.
