Butcher Saves 10 Hours Labour Each Week with New Wrapper

Elixa ZX Wrapper

Elixa ZX full auto wrapper with labeller and ordering software module available.

In O’Riordan St, Alexandria NSW you will discover a fabulous butchery called The Australian Meat Emporium (Previously Establishment 218), the retail outlet of the largest Australian-family owned beef abattoir. Here customers can choose their own succulent premium cuts of beef, lamb, pork, poultry and small-goods lovingly sliced and packed to perfection by the qualified butchers on hand.

Due to continued growth and their commitment to providing the freshest quality meat at wholesale prices the company recently purchased an Elixa ZX tray wrapper from Rollex Australia.  This particular model wraps trays at an average speed of 22 packs a minute. The machine automatically selects the tray size using the exact amount of film required for that size pack eliminating wastage.

We discovered that since we installed the new wrapper we are saving on average 10 hours a week in labour. Not to mention we are using a lot less film with a much more attractive packaging result for the customer

The shop Manager Sabin Subedi was ecstatic when he did the calculations a few weeks after the installation.

Until next time,

Team Rollex



Cooking the Perfect BBQ Chook

Eloma Combi Oven

Eloma Combi Oven

The good old BBQ Chook is an Aussie favourite selling tens of thousands Australia wide 365 days of the year. There is something incredibly seductive about the smell of BBQ chickens and there is nothing more disappointing when you get your chook home only to discover it is dry, unevenly cooked and let’s face it not very tasty.

When the IGA Hopper Group approached Rollex 5 years ago, one of the greatest challenges they had were the inefficient and unreliable Combi Ovens they were using. Unable to produce the perfect BBQ Chook every day of the year the Hopper Group (Owners of 8 IGA stores across the greater Brisbane region) were seeking a new solution. so Rollex installed the first Eloma Combi Oven.

Renowned for quality fresh produce, David Kindt, GM of IGA Hopper Group was very impressed.  The pre-set programs ensure precise even cooking every time regardless of who is on duty. The “Auto cleaning” means that there’s less hassle or health and safety issues for keeping the ovens clean, so staff spend less time cleaning and more time serving customers.

“The reliability, functionality & useability is outstanding not to mention the fantastic 24/7 service Rollex provides, we couldn’t imagine using anything else.”

The IGA Hopper Group have since swapped out their entire fleet of ovens with Eloma and haven’t had a single day since where they have been let down and left without a working oven in any of their stores.

Until next time,

Team Rollex

Windy Market Inspires Change for the Better


K Scale from the Bizerba Range

Garden Organics are experts in fresh organic produce with their main business located at the Queen Victoria Market in Melbourne. This is not only one of the biggest and busiest open air markets in the southern hemisphere, it is also possibly the windiest. Karan and Fahna, the owners approached Rollex with a list of issues due to the wind and inefficient equipment.

They asked us to find a new point of sale solution which would not only save them time and provide fast reliable service to their customers however also provide accurate data.

Chebli from our Melbourne branch knew exactly what they needed and introduced them to Bizerba, the quality German designed scales range. Karen was apprehensive about the Bizerba scale solving all their problems, so we challenged her to trial a scale for a week. After only two days Karen placed an order for three more scales.

“They are the best scales I have ever operated. I only wish we bought them earlier we would have saved ourselves a lot of headaches and money”.

Karen was delighted with the results and has recently placed an order for another Bizerba labeling scale for her new venture.

Until next time,

Team Rollex
