Amaro Foods has expanded its manufacturing footprint with close to 4000 sqm, following the opening of their Artisanal plant, based in Montague Gardens. The new facility is more than double the size of the old plant in Bellville.
The rapid construction of this state-of-art plant was possible with the support and close collaboration of their holding company, Libstar. What has been accomplished in just 6 months is simply incredible. The new facility meets world class food production and safety standards. It features a carefully planned and strategic design to optomise process flow. In addition, the attention to food safety is evident throughout the plant from segregation of raw materials and packaging to carefully enforced cleaning practices. Their onsite Quality Control Laboratory further supports their commitment to strict monitoring and an integrated quality system.
Another notable feature is the sophisticated heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system.
This new plant will be producing the Woolworths range of artisanal breads, flap jacks and croissants (produced in a dedicated croissant room). The staff (+ 100) based at the new plant will be trained to understand the electronic systems that underpin the plant operation.
The Amaro Foods team has set the bar high as they continually innovate and revolutionise their operations.
