Kanes Food Case Study

Kanes Food Case Study

The Customer

Kanes Foods Ltd, based in the Vale of Evesham, is one of the leading UK suppliers of fresh chilled produce to the major multiples. As a supplier of over 100 different products daily, Kanes is an innovative company both in its products and production systems.



The Problem

Kanes food had invested in 20+ checkweighers from various suppliers and wanted to centralise the collection of weight data to drive down wastage and give-away and provide due diligence records for Trading Standards. Their key requirements were for reliable data collection and reports that would assist the production staff to monitor and control wastage.

The Solution

After assessing Kanes Foods’ needs and requirements, ICCS recommended PlantSTATS LINE MONITOR. It allows them to automatically collect the large amount of data generated by their Inline checkweighers throughout their site with no operator input. PlantSTATS LINE MONITOR also gives production staff the data they need on product give-away and line efficiency to drive down costs.

Since implementing the PlantSTATS LINE MONITOR software Kanes Foods have been able to significantly reduce their costs and cut down on waste across the site. 

Mark Harris, Factory Manager at Kanes Foods said: "We have used PlantSTATS LINE MONITOR for a number of years to collect data from all of our production lines. The data collected by PlantSTATS LINE MONITOR from our checkweighers gives us the information we require to actively drive down the cost of waste and improve our line efficiencies.
