A bakery that specialises in artisan wheat- and gluten-free breads, Wheat Free Bakery Direct, has purchased the new FP016 evo flow wrapper from packaging supplier KernPack.

The FP016 evo flowing wrapping machine is capable of processing 150 packs per minute, at a consistent high quality, claimed the company.

The bakery believes it will be able to significantly increase its UK output and expand into the Canadian free-from market.

Colin Sneddon, owner of the Wheat Free Bakery Direct, said: “I am delighted with our new system and the results it has achieved, as I’m always looking to move my business forward.

He added: “We are now able to sell our products to [a] wider discerning customer base, and to know that the flow wrapper can cater for additional volumes in the future is a big plus for us.”

Wheat Free Bakery Direct is an independent, family-owned business based in Scotland specialising in gluten- and wheat-free products.

KernPack has over 60 years’ experience in packaging machinery solutions and automation and is innovating to develop new technologies, products and services to be one step ahead in the market.
