Green Isles foods is Ireland's largest frozen food producer and is head-quartered in Naas, Co. Kildare & established since 1982. We are proud to support 650 Irish Jobs.
Green Isle wanted to create a standard approach to the documentation of their procedures while making the documents more intuitive for their employees. This involved looking at the existing format & the problems arising for the business & then customise the development of suitable templates & training to upskill employees to approach problem solving, risk assessment. This led on to the building and deploying a continuous improvement programme
We worked with the teams in Green Isle to develop & deploy a suitable standard procedural template. Through the use of continuous improvement, initially using process mapping & visual management to complement the information supplied within the procedures. This led to more robust documentation & ownership within the teams for their own areas.
As a result of this success, we then went on to develop & deliver:
Lean Six Sigma training at Executive Belt, White Belt, Yellow Belt, Green Belt levels
Risk assessment training.
Through the delivery of these programs applied in both the manufacturing processes as well as the support services areas, this program has brought about :-
Efficiencies in processes >25%,
