Belgium enjoys a worldwide reputation as a nation of gourmets, mainly because of its many top-class restaurants and renowned chefs. Our small country is an international crossroads of the culinary arts. This is not only the basis for a wide range of food formulations; it is also the foundation of Belgian know-how in food processing technology. Only with state-of-the-art equipment will food manufacturers succeed in bringing top-quality products onto a highly competitive market. Gernal has been a pioneer in the production of many innovative and highly successful Belgian delicacies for more than half a century. In close co-operation with the food industry, Gernal was able to develop a large number of both standard and customised solutions for the preparation of meat, poultry, fish, vegetables and ready meals.
More than 2,500 producers use machines made by Gernal. Thanks to the quality of its systems and precision manufacturing, Gernal has even built up a strong reputation abroad. Approximately 65% of all Gernal machines are delivered to customers in France, Germany, the Netherlands and England. Based on the international experience of the new management, we plan to further expand exports through an increase in our product offer and the expansion of our distribution network
Using Gernal drying, smoking, cooking and roasting units is opting for top quality of the 21st century. These units are multifunctional and meet the most stringent standards and requirements. Gernal developed its first drying, cooking, smoking and roasting unit in 1973. Since that time, this machine has been continuously optimised.
Features: multifunctional and extremely high output
hygienic, thanks to a unique design, the application of stainless steel and the extremely high level of finishing
energy-efficient, thanks to 10 cm insulation
safe, thanks to a strict fulfilment of all legal requirements
State-of-the-art technology, with a robust and simple to operate control system. Can be installed on the machine or on any other location
The Gernal line of drying, cooking, smoking and roasting units includes 12 different types, with a volume ranging from 2,000 to 25,000 litres. If required, Gernal can also develop systems with a larger capacity or to your specific design requirements.
Three types of smoke generators:
Sawdust: the sawdust is ignited with an electric element. A turbine blows air into the combustion chamber, after which the mixture of generated smoke and air travels through smoke channels into the smoking unit.
Friction smoke: pneumatic cylinders push a wooden beam onto a rotating grater, generating a cold smoke with low tar content. This generator is most convenient for smoking in a closed circuit without emitting smoke.
Liquid smoke: a natural wood smoke condensate, which is free of tar substances, is vaporised by pulses through sprinklers in the smoking unit.
smoking and cooking turkey and chicken fillets
roasting and grilling chicken
smoking chicken, duck, ostrich, pigeon, etc.
cold smoking of sprat, herring, salmon, trout, turbot etc.
drying, cooking, baking, roasting and pasteurising

Those who look beyond the exterior of a machine know that excellent quality, durability and service can only be offered by a partner who has the entire production process in his own hands.
At its site in Komen, Gernal disposes over its own 6,000 m² production hall. All of the steps in the production of our machines are carried out by our own professional technicians. Only milling and turning of large series are outsourced.
Gernal’s conscious choice for in-house production offers many advantages:
an extensive standard product range that is available from in-house production
provision of high-quality, made-to-measure solutions
short communications lines
speed and flexibility in execution

Trading wine bottled at the property has long been our specialty, but we have always wanted to go further. What we really wanted to do was to produce special liqueurs and aperitifs. But we did not want to get down to business before holding all the cards.
We finally found these cards in 1977 when we bought the old ‘Dendal’ liquor-factory in La Louvière, Belgium. These cards turned out to be old collections of recipes dating back to 1903 and 1927. We immediately understood that we had discovered a real treasure.
Since then, we have specialized in manufacturing old style aperitifs and liqueurs according to two basic principles: we only use the best products and we always respect the tradition. Of course, we had to harmonize some preparations in order to match the actual consumer tastes. But, in general, we are proud to say that we have reproduced the best things in the best traditional way.
Gervin is a family business listening to the customers’ demands and expectations.
One of our main concerns is to maintain the continuity of our products, to make sure that our customers still taste our know-how after more than 30 years
Gervin’s goal is to become an important actor in distillation in the coming years without loosing its family spirit and its traditional methods.
For a better understanding of our work, we began to elaborate a new distillery and a new orchard two years ago. Indeed, it is best for a distiller to use its own fruits. Our new distillery will be open to the public soon. Our customers will be able to discover our work process and the Gervin products in details
