Food of the Future

With growing confidence, UK  food producers are increasingly willing to invest in new, more efficient process equipment. This confidence is driven by a number of factors including:

  • Consumer appetite for high quality, fresh and exciting foods

  • Need for a shorter supply chain
  • Reducing time from factory to consumer
  • Rapid new product introduction
  • Demand for local production
  • Shifting exchange rates
  • Labour scarcity and cost

Manufacturers are also changing the way they invest in new plant. Gone are the days when a leading producer would purchase a process vessel from one source, a mixer from another and a control system from a third supplier.

With the increasing focus on productivity, quality and flexibility, manufacturers are now willing to make larger investments in well integrated, capable systems that deliver across all these areas. And for a good reason: the initial price tag may be higher but they expect the return on investment to be faster.

In making these investments, companies expect their supply partner to offer a complete set of relevant capabilities:

  • Technical knowledge of the customer’s processes
  • Understanding of business objectives
  • Process trialling and product modelling
  • Proven design capability
  • Integrated manufacturing of process vessels and mixing systems
  • Testing, certifications and validation protocol

A joined-up approach to investment delivers enhanced ROI
