Continuous process improvement, with the aim of increasing the speed and productivity of our equipment.
Improvement of hygiene, in order to adapt our equipment to standards, and to offer you production lines with maximum hygiene.
Reduction of energy consumption, by reducing electricity consumption of production lines (installation of variators on motors for example) as well as water consumption by improving equipment washability (optimized design for cleaning) and improved line programming.
Improved workstation ergonomics: we think about your safety, but also your health. Reducing the difficulty of the work means making your job easier, working in the best conditions, and thus improving productivity and quality. The mechanization of the lines makes it possible to reduce the repetitiveness of the movements, not to carry any more heavy loads, and requires only the cheese makers to supervise the line.
Reduction of releases.
