Pilot Plant

Foodmaker understand that securing production line trials can be difficult and development time is expensive. In our Pilot Plant we can now work with you to replicate your process without interrupting any production at your own site. By taking advantage of our Pilot Plant it’s an ideal opportunity to get your product out to a test market within a short time scale, giving the consumer the opportunity to taste and feedback.

Using this facility also allows our customers to work directly with the Foodmaker Development team. If there are any tweaks required to the product after we've ran a trial with you in the Pilot Plant we can make them instantly. Usually we'll achieve several trials of a product in a single day meaning you leave with the best possible seasoning for your requirements and customer.

We actively encourage our customers to use this facility, in the expectation that one-day we will see the next generation of products on our shelves.
