Testimonials

Before Lauras came I was facing a £2million factory extension project as my only solution for growth… I would recommend Lauras International to any food manufacturing business which wants to achieve rapid and sustainable productivity improvement.

Graham Whittle, Managing Director, Whitby Seafoods

Inspiring the people in our business to understand how they can improve and the business can therefore develop, is an important building block in our drive for improving efficiency within our business. Engaging everyone in the business to realise that we can be better and any little improvement drives down to the bottom line. This has been seen both in the way the staff have engaged and enjoyed the experience and the evidence of reduced costs has helped the business to become more efficient. This process never stops but it is the tools that have been developed by Lauras International that has allowed us to deliver this important work at both our potato pack houses.

Fraser Scott, Head of Farming Operations Arable/Potatoes
