Reverse-packaging and product handling

H&C is recognised as a world leader in automated product handling and reverse packaging systems. While many other companies provide solutions to putting product into packaging, we are specialists in removing packaging from product ready for further processing.

Our technologies were developed for the cheese processing and cheese conversion operations but have since been applied to meat processing and e-commerce fulfilment.

H&C equipment is renowned for being robust, reliable and simple to operate, as well as providing an excellent return on investment in operational cost savings.

All of our equipment can be provided as standalone machines or as part of a complete process solution. We have particular expertise in the integration of these automated systems into existing process lines.
