Selecting the right equipment for your food factory

Selecting the right food manufacturing equipment is critical to the success of any food manufacturing operation. Food production equipment must meet the specific needs of the process. But it must also comply with regulatory requirements–such as CE and UKCA–and guidelines, including those of the European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group (EHEDG).

Assessing your production needs

Before choosing equipment, you need an accurate overview of your production needs. At Willett Food Projects, we have extensive experience selecting and sourcing the right food manufacturing equipment for a variety of applications. We work closely with our clients to understand their unique needs and production requirements. Plus, we have established relationships with a wide range of equipment manufacturers to ensure we can provide the best solutions for each project.

Food safety and equipment compatibility

Our process begins with a feasibility study/design report to analyse your existing and future production process, including an evaluation of existing equipment and potential production bottlenecks. From there, we work with you to identify the most appropriate equipment for each step of the process, taking factors such as production volume, safety requirements and regulatory compliance into account.

Coordinating with subcontractors and team members

Communication is a crucial part of the role. The PC typically spends a significant amount of time liaising with the client, subcontractors and other members of the project team. They need to be able to manage competing priorities and conflicting demands, ensuring that everyone is working towards the same goals.

Choosing equipment with maintenance and repair in mind

Our team has experience with a wide range of equipment, from basic conveyors to complex automated systems. We always recommend the most efficient, robust options–equipment you can rely on for years to come. We're also up-to-date on the latest technology and innovations in the industry, so we can help you stay ahead of the competition. Why not contact us today and see how we can help?
