Integrated Food Projects was delighted to attend Appetite for Engineering 2019 on the 17th October in Coventry, where Head of Process, Ed Keenan, delivered a talk about developing engineering technologies which look set to impact food production in the coming years. You can read the full event write up on the Food Processing website here.

Ed’s talk specifically looked into the effects of artificial intelligence on the engineering function, covering new technology like;

  • Machines that will self-diagnose
  • Nanotechnology
  • Cobots designed for use in hygienic applications.

He also painted a picture of how a food factory might look further into the future, leaving the delegates wondering how the engineering function (and their lives) might have to change when the above technologies become more widely adopted. Read the full article here.

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.
