Nutree Life was started three years ago after Patrick and Adam recognised growing demand for plant-based vegan products.
After engineering an innovative production line to create confectionary-like, multi-layered protein bars with a chocolate coating, they wanted to develop a product range by adding a caramel coating to the mix.
Nutree Life turned to Made Smarter for support and help in developing a technology solution to help with one of its two production lines.
“The system we engineered ourselves has been the key to our success and enabled us to create bespoke white label products for different markets, so brands can be confident their products are unique,” Patrick explained. “But in order to be competitive and to take the next step in our growth we needed to invest in new technologies.
“Manual coating is very wasteful, inaccurate and time consuming, so automation and control were at the heart of our plans. We also knew there was valuable data coming from our machines that would hold the key to continuously improving what we do and how we do it.”
