Cucina Sano is a key supplier of ready prepared meals to Marks & Spencer (M&S) and a member of the Bakkavör Group.
When the firm recently won the contract to produce M&S's lasagna, it bought 12 automatic depositor machines from Riggs Autopack to ensure the smooth running of the product launch.
Riggs Autopack supplies volumetric food depositors and liquid filling machines.
It supplied Cucina Sano with equipment that is fully interchangeable on an assembly line where it is being used to dispense meat and béchamel sauce onto varying sized trays, at up to 40 packs a minute. The trays are subsequently passed down an indexing conveyor that feeds a tray sealing system.
Cucina Sano's factory manager Martin Murray says: "We have been thoroughly impressed with the machines' features. They are really easy to use and have given us extra efficiency and helped us to successfully meet the increased demands from our client, M&S."
Riggs Autopack was on hand prior, during and after the initial launch to provide additional machines and spares on site.
"The quality of the machines is unmatched and the engineers' knowledge and assistance has been invaluable."
