23% annual reduction in packaging cost and 52,000 KG less packaging waste for Faccenda Foods

Task:

Faccenda Foods invited Lindum to audit and assess the packaging operations at each site in order to:

  • Identify potential to reduce costs and packaging waste
  • Streamline supply of transit packaging lines across all sites
  • Implement more efficient packaging processes

 

Findings and Solutions:

We identified the following opportunities for improvement across the 6 sites:

  • Machine pallet wrap – Across all sites costs and waste were reduced by using higher yield machine Carestretch™ and Carewrap™ films and optimising the machine settings. In some cases, replacement palletwrap machinery was provided to reduce costs and waste even further.
  • Hand pallet wrap – All sites were standardized to use the most cost effective Carewrap™ film. This provides enhanced operator efficiencies and the lowest possible cost per wrapped pallet.  Performance issues with the incumbent film were resolved, and use of a Carepole dispenser at some sites reduces operator effort and risk of RSI.
  • Hand tape – Longer rolls were introduced to reduce downtime and reduce waste due to less cores. Also, a standardized specification was implemented across the group.
  • Machine tape – a standardized specification was implemented to reduce cost across the group.

 

Results:

  • Less Cost – Annual Cost Saving of 23%
  • Less Waste – Annual Waste Saving of 52,435.05kg
  • Less Risk – Pallet containment force improved or maintained, fewer RSI claims from operators wrapping pallets using Carepole
  • Less Hassle – One supplier across all sites and multiple SKUs
  • Less Downtime – New machinery installed where required to improve efficiency
