Seminar Times for Food and Drink Engineering Summit

FoodandDrinkLI Europe is delighted to have been invited to present two papers at the Inaugural Food and Drink Engineering Summit, June 7th, Motorcycle Museum (Birmingham).

Head to Seminar 1 (1pm) to hear Erica Bassford discuss how food and drink businesses can deliver on the promise of Lean by developing skills, behaviours, and effective management models.

Then stay in the Seminar 1 stream (1.15pm) for Jeremy Praud‘s paper on the topical subject of the retailers’ new ‘Lean Audits for Food Manufacturers’.

LI Europe is also exhibiting at the event – so drop by Stand 36 for a chat with the team at any time.

Our Manufacturing Improvement Practitioners look forward to discussing how they could help you overcome frustrations you may have with your rate of improvement, levels of waste and giveaway, shopfloor motivation, asset reliability, or indeed any other issue that is impacting your manufacturing performance.

Recommendation from the organisers: “If you are involved with engineering the future of the food factory you cannot afford to miss this event. Join more than 500 senior management and technical experts from the countries leading food and beverage manufacturers for the food and beverage engineering event of the year.”


We are pleased with the progress we’re making at the Gweedore site, indeed we’re so pleased that we’re planning to roll out the programme to our other manufacturing sites.

Inspiring the people in our business to understand how they can improve and the business can therefore develop, is an important building block in our drive for improving efficiency within our business. Engaging everyone in the business to realise that we can be better and any little improvement drives down to the bottom line. This has been seen both in the way the staff have engaged and enjoyed the experience and the evidence of reduced costs has helped the business to become more efficient. This process never stops but it is the tools that have been developed by LI Europe that has allowed us to deliver this important work at both our potato pack houses.
