Bryan's Salads expands capacity to meet demand

Related tags Ishida europe Ishida

Advanced Ishida weighing technology has played a key role in the success and growth of specialist salad producer Bryan’s Salads, based at Tarleton in Lancashire.

Nine multihead weighers, including three from the RV range recently installed, weigh a wide variety of salad products, packed into both bags and salad bowls.

The weighers handle a wide variety of pack sizes, ranging from 90g to 250g for retail and 250g to 1kg for foodservice, with accuracy to within 2g on a typical 100g pack of mixed leaves.

Packing speeds are dependent on the capability of the bagmaker and the nature of the product – heavier items fall more quickly into the bag – but average speeds are around 40 packs a minute.

The family-owned business supplies pre-packed salads and vegetables to both the retail and foodservice sector. It processes around 350t of product a week and has a turnover of £30M.
