Gainsborough-based company GIC recently supplied a milestone machine to Vale Royal Fresh Foods, based in Knutsford, Cheshire. Vale Royal Fresh Foods specializes in growing and supplying approximately 3,000 tonnes of beansprouts to retailers and trade customers each year. The latest machine provided by GIC to Vale Royal Fresh Foods is the GIC4100, marking their third GIC bagger in use.

According to Brian Clark, manufacturing manager at Vale Royal, the GIC baggers have proven to be highly reliable, resulting in minimal downtime for their operations. Clark mentioned that they have one eight-year-old machine that primarily packs smaller bags, and due to its exceptional performance, they decided to invest in a second machine for wholesale and bulk production. He praised the seamless process of ordering, pre-delivery inspection (PDI), and installation provided by GIC, highlighting the flexibility, helpfulness, and patience of the GIC team. Clark concluded by commending GIC as a reputable and respectable brand.

Martin Raison, GIC’s applications manager, explained that all of Vale Royal’s GIC4100s have been specifically tailored to suit their operational environment. The 4100s at Vale Royal are dual machines, designed to pack either a 4.5kg carrier bag at 18 packs per minute or 350g heat-sealed laminate film retail packs at 60 packs per minute. Additionally, the machines are installed on rails, allowing them to be easily moved back 1.8 meters when cleaning the production lines and overhead weighers.

The partnership between GIC and Vale Royal Fresh Foods showcases the importance of reliable and efficient packaging solutions in the food and drink industry. With a focus on sustainability and consumer trends, companies like GIC are at the forefront of providing innovative packaging solutions for the sector.
