Our Client is a manufacturer of frozen potato and appetizer products for the retail, restaurant and institutional sectors. They grow, process, market, distribute and sell food and food products and they are among the largest producers of french fries in North America. They operate four state-of-the-art potato processing plants in Canada and the United States. Recovery is a critical indicator for the Client as it represents the percent of each potato that is made into a saleable product.
Our marketplace is oversupplied and competition has increased. We needed a productivity increase and PVA was contacted and then hired after proposal review. Through this partnership, we have raised our productivity in product output with less man hours, and reduced waste in our process. Our breakthrough moment was when we met, exceeded and most importantly, sustained the improvements.
