CKF Highly Commended for Innovation

CKF Systems has received recognition for its innovation from the Weetabix Food Company, producer of the UK’s number one selling cereal and one of Britain’s most iconic brands.


It follows the successful design and installation by CKF Systems of a solution for Weetabix to increase the efficiency of four complex manufacturing lines at its Burton Latimer premises. As a result the company has seen both an increase in production levels and significant reduction in product wastage.


The ‘Highly Commended for Innovation’ award was presented by Weetabix Food Company CEO, Giles Turrell, to CKF’s Sales Director, Kevin Staines, at the recent Weetabix Supplier Conference.


"We are extremely proud that a market leader and company with the stature of Weetabix has acknowledged our workmanship in this very public way," enthuses Kevin Staines.


"Weetabix commissioned CKF Systems to improve efficiencies within its manufacturing processes. Incorporated into our solution is a buffering system which allows production to continue to operate for five minutes in the event of any upstream stoppage. Whereas previously, a disruption to the manufacturing lines could impact upon the baking process and result in product wastage, the likelihood of this happening now is significantly reduced."
