Productivity Assessment Program
Located in St. David’s, Chocolate FX specializes in the creation and full-scaled production of premium chocolates. Ranging from chocolate-coated nuts and dried berries to more seasonal products. Over the past years, the company has been growing to meet the demand of its customers. Facing challenges of efficient operations due to this growth, Chocolate FX looked to the Walker Advanced Manufacturing Innovation Centre’s productivity team.
Through several weeks of applied research through the lens of manufacturing engineering, the Research & Innovation team was able to make recommendations to Chocolate F/X related to automation, layouts and business plan deployments. These areas directly related to productivity as well as tracking safety, product quality, responsiveness and costs.
