Foodmek Goes The Extra Mile

Wednesday 22 April 2020

A Tayport-based business has been adapting to the current climate by offering its services to local businesses. North East Fife food processing manufacturer, Foodmek, has used its expertise to design and manufacture a range of social distancing screens to provide a physical barrier for situations where it may not be possible to enforce the two metre social distancing rules. The screens, made of versatile stainless steel can be manufactured in a variety of shapes, sizes and can be interconnected at up to 90 degrees, ensuring they can meet requirements no matter the area. The screens, which have received a lot of initial interest, can also be supplied with either a custom banner or Perspex panels where visibility is a requirement. And, when it isn’t designing these new social distancing screens, Foodmek has been offering some of its machinery tolocal businesses. A local distillery is hoping to utilise its manually operated single filler machine to bottle hand sanitisers. Scot Kelly, Managing Director of Foodmek, explains: “We’ve really been thinking outside the box and looking at ways in which we can help and support local businesses in this difficult time. For example, after hearing about the great work a local distillery was doing in the fight against Coronavirus by beginning to produce a hand sanitiser, we contacted them tooffer use of our single shot filler, for free, for as long as needed to bottle their product.”
