Kaipara Kumara video
Anthony Blundell from Kaipara Kumara in New Zealand speaks about his experience with their new Wyma sweet potato wash line. Take a look!
"Wyma Engineering were an automatic choice for us. They’ve got a great reputation for producing good gear. A lot of their business is export driven which tells you they have some good tests on their manufacturing quality and their final end product....
"Worksafe, health and safety, the fact that we’ve got a nice hygienic and safe place for our staff to work, really speaks a lot for Wyma and what they’re helping us to produce." - Anthony Blundell

Want your kids to eat more veggies? We'll let you in on a family secret...
Ever wanted your kids to eat more vegetables? Anthony and Peter Blundell from Kaipara Kumara have very kindly shared their tried and tested kumara (sweet potato) mash family recipe.
After years of trying different quantities and varieties they have come up with the perfect balance and they are sure your kids will be asking for more.
Kumara Sweet Potato Mash - Blundell (not so) secret family recipe
2x Orange Kumara (Sweet Potato)
1x Red Kumara (Sweet Potato)
1x Gold Kumara (Sweet Potato)
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Peel your kumara (sweet potato) and be sure to cut off the woody ends where the kumara attaches to the plant – the kumara's 'umbilical cord'. Bring a pot of water to the boil.
2. Cook the kumara (sweet potato) whole, boil it (fully covered in water) for 35-45 minutes. You can cut it into smaller pieces to reduce the boiling time.
3. Once the kumara (sweet potato) is tender, drain the water, add butter, a splash of milk and salt and pepper (to your taste) and mash. Enjoy!
Healthy bonus tip:
Ever tried raw sweet potato? Looking for an even healthier alternative to carrot sticks?
Orange kumara (sweet potato) tastes great raw. Peel it and cut it up into bite sized pieces or into sticks. You can eat it by itself or with your favourite dip, delicious!
Wyma’s configurable Flat Bed System improves process efficiency, saving time and money
Wyma’s multi-purpose Flat Bed System eliminates the need to transfer produce between processes, saving you time and money.
Our freshly revised Flat Bed System is now even more configurable than ever.
If your produce is round (or near-round), we have customised solutions for you, including;
Surface Liquid Application
Our Flat Bed Systems are modular and have three standard width options. Individual modules have two length options and multiple modules can be combined to suit your site. This means your produce gets optimal contact time on the bed surface.
The drive system has a robust, interlaced toothed belt drive which means it has less drive motors compared to other machines on the market.
Brushing: Four brush types so you can choose brushing intensity.
Drying: Two drying roller types to suit your preference. A unique squeezing mechanism easily removes water from drying rollers.
Rinsing and Liquid Application: Spray bars can be configured to rinse produce with water or apply liquid to produce surface.
We recently developed an optional roll-out produce clearing device. This provides a simple and compact way to clear produce between batches or at the end of the day.
For more information please visit our Flat Bed System and Absorbent Drying Rollers product pages.
