A skilled and fully-trained management team is vital for the success of lean and green food and drink manufacturing, according to fast-moving consumer goods improvement specialist Simon Spanyol, who took part in the Food Manufacture Group’s recent webinar dedicated to the subject.

“As part of rolling out a lean programme, it is vital that the management team are trained first as they will need to support the rollout down the organisation,”​ said Spanyol.

“This training is also a great opportunity for the senior team to calculate the benefits and objectives of the programme.”

Realising world class potential

In this exclusive video interview filmed after the webinar – Lean and green manufacturing: realising world class potential – Spanyol explained his approach to lean and green, based on many years’ experience with Mars and elsewhere.

Also taking part in the webinar were Helen Sisson, Greencore group technical director and Louise Nicholls, head of responsible sourcing and packaging and Plan A, and event sponsor Jeremy Praud, partner with event sponsor Lauras International.
