The canning factory, based just outside of Cape Town, is surrounded by the peach growers and vineyards of the Stellenbosch area. Buying in produce from the local growers, the factory prepares, cans, cooks, labels and packs peaches and other tinned fruits for wholesale to supermarkets all over the world.

Detailed observation and analysis allowed us to show the company how to use their existing staff better to speed up productivity throughout the manufacturing process, maximising machine capacities and increasing their output.
