Ishida weighing technology has played a role in the growth of specialist salad producer Bryans Salads.

Bryans Salads first diversified into ready-prepared salads in 1997, and remains the only UK grower to supply its own lettuce, with most of its crops grown within a one mile radius of its processing site.

Today, the company processes around 350 tonnes of product every week.

The family-owned and run business is a BRC-grade A V7 supplier of pre-packed salads and vegetables to both the retail and foodservice sector.
