We’ve recently helped a chicken processing company save costs and improve the quality of their end product by coating their mesh trays. You can read the case study here.
The client had previously used another coating supplier who had recommended the wrong coating and hadn’t taken into account the equipment would be cleaned using steam. This resulted in the coating failing – a costly exercise for the client!
We worked with them to understand their business and were ultimately able to provide them with a coating that met their needs – non-stick, durable and able to tolerate their cooking, freezing and cleaning processes.
The results speak for themselves:
- Easier release of the product from the mesh.
- A better quality of product.
- Lower wastage.
- Increase longevity of their equipment.
- Easier to clean (and as a result, a reduced cycle time which helped reduce their costs).
As an added bonus, we were also able to recommend improvements to the design of their trays, which were being damaged as they were being placed into storage racks. By reinforcing the tray edges, we were able to prolong their life.
Had the client contacted us earlier, we could have helped them design and manufacture the trays from early on in the project and ensured that both the design and the final coating met their needs first time round.
