At Chadwicks, we pride ourselves on having a wide selection of cutting tools at our disposal and, while we may not always have the exact size and shape that a customer is looking for, we often have something very similar, saving valuable time and money.
Such as when free-from snacking brand, Crave, approached us with a unique request for pre-cut lidding on their new, mini breadstick and chocolate hazelnut dip snack pot, The Big Dipper, and we were able to offer an alternative.
Crave had sent us drawings of a pot shape that we didn’t already have a tool for, but we offered them an option using an existing similar shaped one. Using a pre-existing tool shape meant cost savings for Crave, as well as shorter lead times as they didn’t have to wait for a new cutting tool to be designed and delivered.
Sealing equipment was also supplied by lidding equipment specialists Seal-it-Systems.
Rob Brice, founder of Crave, said: “As a new start-up, there is a balance to be found between quality and cost efficiency. When we approached Chadwicks for their assistance, they went above and beyond to offer a solution that saved us time and money without compromising the product’s overall quality.
“The lidding offers a secure seal and easy-peel technology, making it convenient for consumers. Both Chadwicks and Seal-it-Systems have been excellent partners to work with and we look forward to continuing the relationships.”
We’re delighted to have worked with Rob and the Crave team, who continue to make waves in the food industry with their award-winning allergen-free vegan foods. We wish them all the best, including their success in winning a contract with Aldi after becoming champions of Channel 4’s ‘Aldi’s Next Big Thing’ show.
