Lean and green food manufacturing is about far more than “switching off the lights and lagging the pipes”, Greencore’s group technical director Helen Sisson explains in this exclusive video interview.

Filmed after Food Manufacture Group’s free, one-hour webinar​ dedicated to the topic, Sisson detailed the benefits that adopting a lean and green approach were delivering to the convenience food manufacturer.

But achieving those benefits depended on engaging the workforce, she explained.

Also taking part in the webinar were representatives from Marks & Spencer (M&S) and Lauras International, which sponsored the digital event.

What M&S expects from food and drink suppliers

M&S’s head of responsible sourcing and packaging and Plan A Louise Nicholls explained how the pioneering retailer does lean, green and ethical business. The sourcing boss also detailed what M&S expected from its food and drink suppliers.

Jeremy Praud, partner at Lauras International, which sponsored the webinar, quantified the typical benefits of implementing a lean production programme. He also identified the period over which benefits could be expected.

Practical implementation

Also taking part was improvement consultant Simon Spanyol, who focused on the practical implementation of lean food and drink manufacturing programmes, drawing on his many years of implementing and appraising lean procedures at Mars and elsewhere.
