During Finsbury Foods’ automation project, Charpak Ltd worked closely with us and our automation partners to ensure the project was delivered on schedule. Charpak’s packaging enabled a seamless switch which worked from day one. Their service levels mean that this was one of our most successful projects

Christopher Hegan,

I want to thank you all, especially the ever-willing David, for your super service. Your people have really gone many extra miles to keep Cheese Posties on track and it is hugely appreciated. Please convey our best wishes and thanks to your team.

Craig French, , Finsbury Foods

That’s the first 2 fully modelled tray shapes now licensor approved. Feedback on the 3D cake moulds from the licensors is brilliant. The designers who developed the actual characters for the film think the cake is the best franchised on brand edible product they have seen. Thanks for all the help with these. Looking forward to plenty more on the horizon!

Jeff Gale, Kensey Foods
