Optimization of Product Processes
When food products are re-formulated, it is often necessary for manufacturers to re-design their processes to accommodate the changes. This can involve identifying additional equipment, re-configuring process lines, optimizing the processing conditions or a combination of all three approaches.
Assistance has been provided to many manufacturers who have experienced difficulty with running their production processes. This usually involves analysis of the existing process regime, and making recommendations for the changes necessary to obtain improvement.
Commissioning of new production lines, training of operations staff, specifications for design of QA facilities & recommendations for laboratory equipment. Start-up of pilot plant installations together with training of R. & D. staff and advice on the running of development programs.
Design of new plant installations on a turnkey basis. Coordination of plant installation projects from the specification stage right through to implementation and start-up of the new operation.
