Major Food Manufacturer seeks Tasty Upgrade.
Creative Foods is a major producer of chilled and ambient products such as sandwich fillings, marinades, sauces, mayonnaise, and dips. As part of a multimillion pound redevelopment of the Creative Foods’ Burton-on-Trent site, PlantRun was chosen to monitor the performance of the lines.
The study required accurate line run rates, production counts, short and long downtime durations and reasons for long stoppages. The quality of data required is not possible to capture manually.
Different countries not only prefer different flavours but have different manufacturing and packaging requirements. In some countries the product needs to meet pharmaceutical manufacturing standards. In countries with high humidity climates the product is supplied in reseal able zip packs, to enable longer life.
With daily production targets to meet it is crucial that the speed of production is optimised. A PlantRun system is enabling the business to meet industry standard target speeds on four production lines.
