For more than eight decades now, HALLDE, located in Sweden, has produced food preparation machines. The founder Mr. Ernst Hall had a brilliant idea – to construct a machine that produced beautiful soft pieces of butter that were easy to spread.

The butter portioner was followed by other products and pretty soon HALLDE started to produce Vegetable Preparation Machines. The Vegetable Preparation Machine was a great success and it did not take long until foreign buyers were knocking on Mr. Hall’s door.

Today HALLDE has more than 200 representatives in more than 80 countries, on all continents.
