World Class Standards in Food Excellence

LI Europe is delighted to be sponsoring the Food Manufacture Excellence Awards again in 2015.

Now in its 15th year, the Awards are “an industry benchmark for all those aspiring to world class standards in food excellence”. These awards differ from other industry awards in that they recognise manufacturing achievements across a range of criteria including NPD, category management, quality assurance, and process innovation.

Last year LI Europe presented Graze with the Star Performer Award, and a few years before that our client Weetabix picked up the top accolade when their ambitious improvement programme designed to engage employees delivered fantastic results, including a 52% improvement in output.

If you’re aspiring to World Class Standards in Food Excellence, register your interest in the Awards.


Our cooperation with LI Europe has yielded significant improvement across the plants in East Asia and I have recommended the cooperation be implemented across our other regions and suppliers

Over the past three months I have been concentrating mainly on changeover reduction, waste reduction and increased throughput. There has also been a challenge to behavioural patterns. All of these efforts have been using the knowledge that you gave me and I am delighted to say that all have been successful, culminating in increased throughput, less waste and an increase in OEE from an average of 78% to around 90%. There has also been a marked improvement with people issues.
