Fabcon Food Systems has penned the deal with family-owned Greek firm Unismack, which includes the British company installing a high accuracy seasoning system at Unismack’s facility in Kilkis, northern Greece.
The partnership has already been integral in supporting the Greek company’s UK launch of its new Wellaby’s ‘Simple Bakes’ line of gluten-free snacks.
Trevor Howard, managing director of UK-based Fabcon, said: “Unismack has ambitious plans to develop its products and therefore wanted a top quality, cost-effective and reliable seasoning solution.
“Seasoning can now be added continuously to any product, easily and effectively. It’s a big step forward for them and we were delighted to add our advice, experience and expertise to the project. With further expansion planned, we hope to work with Unismack even more in the years ahead as we continue to expand our customer base in Europe and beyond.”
Dimitrios Stratakis, managing director of Unismack, added: “We were very impressed by the professional way that Fabcon handled the contract from the initial enquiry through to the installation.
“We saw this equipment in use in the UK and the glowing testimony from other Fabcon customers convinced us we made the right choice. It’s another milestone for our company, especially as we look to make more inroads into the UK food sector.”
