KFF Potatoes is based at Sutton Bridge near Spalding in Lincolnshire. It is primarily a potato prepacker which adds value to product sourced from across the UK including Cambridgeshire, Herefordshire, Shropshire, Suffolk, Norfolk and Lincolnshire.
Describing the company and its processes, Richard Phillips said: “We process around 2000 tonnes of potatoes per month, mainly washing and packing them in prepacks, cartons and bulk containers for a wide range of customers such as supermarkets, hypermarkets, caterers and food manufacturers.” he “we chose DOLAV because they suit our customers’ processes and machines as well as our own. They are durable and recyclable – withstanding the impacts that are inevitable in this type of procedure. They are processed several times (up to 10 times) with transport, storage and retrieval of various production and delivery processes for each individual sale. They have to be durable and we think they do the job very well.”
“We carry around 100 DOLAVs and we see this as a good investment because having enough on hand to deliver once without waiting for DOLAVs to return from the customer saves on transport costs. Our customers expect us to eliminate all risks of foreign object contamination during the process. We find the best way to do this is to wash and seal them with a lid just prior to production. We have been using DOLAVs for more than six years now and have found that they have performed well over time. We have recently received new boxes that give us more flexibility and the ability to produce the volume our customers want.”
