On the eve of the official opening of Birch & Waite's new food manufacturing facility in Revesby, Sydney, we learned how the factory has been designed for the future.

GM of Birch & Waite, David Charles and MD of RMR Process, Peter Taitoko presented on the design thinking behind the mid-tier food manufacturer's new facility, where some of the company's more innovative products will be processed and packed.

David Charles gave a background to the company and its drive for innovation and quality, and described some of the new technology in place at the plant, including the latest thermoprocessing equipment and specialised sachet filling and packing line.

Peter Taitoko explained the process that his team followed with Birch & Waite to save them millions of dollars in plant design and construction costs, by establishing what the company needs now and building that, but designing and putting in place the necessary infrastructure to accommodate future automation and expansion.

Our editorial team will be attending the opening this Friday, and will bring you the full story in next week's enews.
