Anpario invests US$1.2 million in new bottling plant
Anpario, has invested £1 million (US$1.2 million) in a new, fully automated bottling plant at its Manton Wood facility in Nottinghamshire, the United Kingdom, the feed technology specialist announced in early September.
The new plant will enable Anpario to produce its liquid products with greater flexibility in production, allowing them to respond to their customer demands more efficiently whilst providing total accuracy and consistency. The new plant will also give the company a built-in capacity for growth.
"We made this investment primarily to cater for the increasing demand for Orego-Stim Liquid, our 100% natural oregano essential oil liquid product, which is now being sold in more than 33 countries across the world," said Anpario chief executive Richard Edwards. "It will also support Anpario Direct where our customers often require smaller package liquid products applied at farm level and will allow us to process our other liquid products such as Salgard, Optomega and Salkil."
The new plant, which is the result of a two year project, can bottle liquid products into standard 1L round neck or dosing bottles of either 1L or 0.5L. It has a throughput of over 2,000 bottles per hour and complements the previous investments Anpario has put into automating its production and warehousing facilities.
