Ahead of IFP’s head of process, Ed Keenan’s webinar where he will be discussing the factory of the future, we revisit the three-part series of blogs from earlier in the year.


In the first of the series, Ed discusses the automation and design part of the industry, and what we can expect to see in food factories in the near future.


In the second of the series, Ed looks at the technical and process trends predicted for the food factory design industry in the next decade.


In the third of the three-part series, Ed shares his predictions for the buildings and services trends we are likely to see over the next 5-10 years.


To sign up to the free webinar, which takes place on Wednesday 30th September, please head over to the Niras website to register.


Integrated Food Projects have partnered with Kettleby Foods on a number of high-profile multi-million pound capital projects since 2003/4, helping the business to develop and grow. Throughout that time they have provided cost-effective and efficient solutions on development projects both at our existing ready meals production facility and also in creating a new satellite facility. The projects at our existing facility were managed without impact on our ability to service our own clients, and all projects have been delivered within budget, in a timely fashion and to the requisite standards of safety and quality. Their team work ethos and professional approach ensure successful projects and I would utilise Integrated Food Projects in the future without hesitation.

I have worked with Integrated Food Projects on many capital expenditure projects since 2004, the latest being the development of the new plot of land adjacent to our main site. They successfully employed a project delivery process to ensure the integration of a leased modular building solution with the development of the site infrastructure to improve logistics and Health and Safety. Their staff are always positive and enthusiastic and have fostered a team-work approach ensuring another successful project delivered. I look forward to working with them again in the near future.
