Yamato Scale Dataweigh has helped Natures Way Foods to create the largest salad production facility in Europe.
Yamato Scale recently completed the installation of bespoke multihead weighers and checkweigher / metal detector combi machines for Natures Way Foods at its Selsey plant in West Sussex.
Natures Way Foods manufactures fresh convenient food to major UK supermarkets and food services companies. Its customers include Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Aldi and Greencore Group.
Due to a continued rise in demand for its fresh bagged salads Natures Way has continued to invest and, in particular, to extend its factory in Selsey with the installation of 15 new production lines – nine in 2018 and another six in 2021.
The Selsey-based salad facility now has a total of 25 production lines, 23 of which use Yamato multihead weighers and 25 with Yamato checkweigher/metal detection combi systems. The six existing G-Series are being replaced with new I Series in June 2021.
The equipment, which was commissioned in January 2021, will help Natures Way grow its capacity and reputation as a specialist supplier of bagged salads, leafy salad bowls, and food-to-go products.
