  • Production process

    Rukola production unit can perform a wide range of edible oil packing operations. The production process can be divided into the following stages:

    Reception point of edible oil > bottling > storage > labelling > packaging > storage of packaged products

    The company ensures a top quality production process at each stage of its operations. This is confirmed by the 2014 BRC certification.

    Reception point of edible oil
    Edible oil can be received both from rail tankers (broad gauge) and road tankers. We can receive over 200 tones of oil per day. Because of the location of the oil reception point it is possible to receive oil even at sub-zero temperatures.
    Storage
    Edible oil is stored in 4 x 100 tonne and 3 x 285 tonne air-tight stainless steel tanks. The number and volume of tanks allow the storage of different types of both refined and unrefined oils.
    Bottling
    The assortment consists of both pre-packaged and bulk products. Oil can be supplied in 0.9-litre, 1-litre, 1.8-litre, 3-litre, 5-litre and 10-litre PET bottles and larger volume HDPE containers.
    There are two 0.9-litre and 1-litre bottle filling lines: 6,000 bph and 8,000 bph.
    The capacity of the 1.8-, 2-, 3-, 5- and 10-littre bottle filling lines is 3,000 bph.
    Both 0.9-litre and 1-litre PET bottles are blow-filled on the filling line. Currently we have 5 different designs of bottles.
    Labelling
    We use 70 mm (length) x 100 mm (height) paper labels. We can supply labels of the required design on several types of paper, coated with regular or UV lacquer.
    We use a variety of one- and two-component design caps. We can supply your chosen cap colour with a logo.
    Packaging
    Products are packed in corrugated cardboard boxes. The boxes are brown or white corrugated cardboard, with or without perforations, and of a desired design. Packing details:

    0.9-litre and 1-litre bottle filling lines are fully automated – starting with blowing a bottle and feeding it to the line, finishing with insertion of the bottles into boxes and boxes onto pallets and stretch hood wrapping of pallets. The stretch hood wrapping facilitates transportation of the production – the units are held together very tightly.

    Storage of packaged products
    Our warehouse capacity is 1,000 pallets. We have a drive-in pallet rack system. This allows us to store a wide assortment of products and accelerates product selection and shipping.
