Case Study: A Breakthrough In Snack-Packing Efficiency: Red Mill Welcomes The Ishida FPS

By automating the packing of cases, using two Ishida Flexible Packing Systems (FPS), a major snack food company can now run an entire production and packing unit, from production and flavouring through to case-packed, palletised product, with a 60% reduction in labour costs.

Red Mill Snack Foods Limited, a subsidiary of Continental Foods, is a leading UK manufacturer of savoury snacks.

Red Mill’s factory in Wednesbury turns out an average of 3.5 million packs of snacks per week. A thriving warehousing industry nearby has effectively meant full employment in the area, and the company is always looking for ways of applying automation so that it can deploy its qualified manpower to best effect.
