MONO’s (Swansea, West Glamorgan) new V3 Bread Plant has a footprint 50% smaller than traditional bread plants, says the firm, and is designed for positioning against a wall or in the corner of a bakery.

The plant has also been developed to be operated by one person, so it is suitable for smaller craft bakeries or in a larger operation where space is tight.

The compact V3 incorporates a divider, intermediate prover and multi-functional moulder, with dough-piece weight consistency on a range of products, including French bread, oven bottom bread and tin bread.
