Nottingham-based Gourmet Chocolate Pizza Co was able to boost production and cut seasonal temporary staffing by upgrading its packing process through investing in a horizontal flow wrapper from Ulma Packaging UK.
Replacing an L-Sealer at its production facility and installing the high-speed, flexible FR200 has enabled Gourmet Chocolate Pizza Co to increase output of its handmade chocolate pizzas significantly.
Currently sealing film on a range of chocolate pizzas, slices and popcorn bars at 30 items per minute the machine has plenty of spare capacity for the Christmas rush from chocolate lovers for this new concept in the chocolate gift market, presented in authentic pizza boxes and available from its own website as well as garden centres, department stores, small independents and online retailers.
Faster throughput and ease of use are just some of the advantages of using Ulma Packaging UK machinery says Gourmet Chocolate Pizza Co’s director and founder, Helen Ellis: “I’m very pleased with the performance of their equipment and we’re not even using it to its full capacity yet. The machine gives us exactly what we wanted – a faster process to market, protection of our products and staff savings in the run-up to Christmas this year.”
