Frozen seafood manufacturer Whitby Seafoods says it has been able to double its packaging speed thanks to a new packaging and distribution line from Australian-based processing and packaging equipment provider, tna.
The investment has enabled the frozen seafoods company to meet rising consumer demand by providing additional capacity and seamless integration between systems, helping to save time and increase efficiency.
Whitby Seafoods is based in Whitby, a traditional fishing port in North Yorkshire, UK, and the family company makes frozen seafood products, specialising in locally sourced langoustines – or scampi – that are breaded and sold in bitesize portions.
A recent rebrand included the introduction of new pack sizes ranging from between 200 and 300 grams in a standard pillow bag format.
Whitby Seafoods therefore sought out a flexible packaging and distribution system that would allow it to expand its product portfolio and allow efficient product changes and integration with existing elements of the production line.
