Brief
The company started off with a single Acrivarn rack oven, but with the company expansion and move to a larger site, Acrivarn was approached to provide a 2-rack oven, knowing that the oven worked well and was reliable.

Solution and Outcome
Higgidy chose the 2-door rack oven for high and low separation of the raw and cooked meat. The reliability of the product means that Higgidy can be reassured that each product baked is of the highest standard.

The Acrivarn rack oven is manufactured from high quality materials, predominately non-magnetic and high temperature stainless steel. The airflow through the baking chamber is controlled by an adjustable lourve panel and is designed to give a totally even bake.
