Rodda’s invests in la crème de la crème of equipment

Supplier News

Rodda’s creamery in Cornwall, famous for its quality dairy produce, recently invested in a high-speed shrink-wrapping line to help them meet increases in demand for their milk products.

They turned to the leaders in shrink-wrapping systems, Yorkshire Packaging Systems (YPS), to supply and maintain the new equipment.

Rodda’s requirements were for a line with increased speed compared with their previous system, which could handle different configurations of their product easily and which was designed for the dairy environment. YPS were able to supply a wrapping system exactly to Rodda’s’ needs. The YPS engineering team installed and configured the system at Rodda’s’ Cornish operation, fitting around the dairy’s production schedule.

Steve Basford, Rodda’s Engineering Manager, commented: From my point of view, YPS listened to our requirements from the outset of the project. We had good communication in the build stage and the installation, which had to be done over an extended weekend so we did not affect production, went smoothly with a vertical startup on the Monday morning

Rodda’s Creamery prides itself on its high-quality production values. Rodda's source their milk directly from Cornish farms to ensure they get the best quality, rich and creamy milk they are looking for, from farms with high standards of animal welfare. Investment in packaging the product properly helps ensure that the final consumer receives the product in the best condition and is able to appreciate that quality.

Both businesses are family-owned and have a long legacy in their respective industries.

YPS Managing Director, Glyn Johnson, commented: We’ve been in business for over 45 years now, which is a great achievement, but it’s dwarfed by the more than 130 years that Rodda’s Creamery have been operating. Despite their long history, Rodda’s aren’t resting on their laurels but are continuing to invest for a healthy future and it’s a privilege to play a small part in helping them to do that.
