‘Integrated Solutions’ a range of modular plug & play packages for the food & drink industry
Food and Drink manufacturers are always under pressure to keep costs down, while ensuring that their products comply with a raft of regulations. Many small / medium sized food manufacturers do not have the resources of the large global companies in this sector. This has become even more paramount during the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as considering processes which include automation.
Food manufacture is still a labour-intensive process for many and in a climate where access to cheaper migrant labour is going to be restricted more & more, there is a need for cost effective equipment that can provide tangible cost savings in food manufacturing.
