Northern Europe installation bolsters Norwich firm’s growth plans
A Norwich-based food processing equipment manufacturer has increased its presence in northern Europe by supplying a new production system for a Scandinavian snack giant.
Fabcon Food Systems has provided two of its potato chip batch fryers, alongside new weighing, slicing and feeding equipment, to KiMs for the potato snack firm’s production plant in Skreia, southern Norway.
The installation of the equipment marks the first time the Norwich firm has supplied the snacks maker - part of the Orkla Company with facilities across Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Latvia.
Trevor Howard, managing director of Fabcon Food Systems, said: “To supply one of Scandinavia’s most respected snack manufacturers is another milestone for us as it shows again that our products and designs are in high demand.
“It has been a game-changer for Orkla C&S Norway as they look to produce new products. We look forward to working with them in the months and years ahead.”
