Supporting Local Manufacturing Talent

September 6, 2017


Nutricia Advanced Medical Nutrition supports the development of a new mini process manufacturing plant at the North West Training Council’s (NWTC) offices in Bootle through the donation of a can labelling machine.

The NWTC is creating a mini process manufacturing plant to support its new Food and Drink Engineering Apprenticeship Standard. Catering for industries based in the North West, the state-of-the-art processing plant will be used by engineering apprentices to learn about process control and condition monitoring of the food and drink manufacturing process.   
Keen to support the development of this new facility, Nutricia has donated a can labelling machine to the NWTC. 

NWTC is a registered provider for the National Skills Academy Food & Drink (NSAFD). Its mini plant is due to be up and running in January 2018 and will be used to train apprentices in Food and Drink in Mechanical and Multi-skilled Engineering Maintenance level 3. 

The donation further cements Nutricia’s ongoing relationship with NWTC. It currently has four engineering apprentices working for the company who are studying for their HNC exams with NWTC. 

Bill Middleton, Head of Technical Education and Safety at NWTC said, “The purchase of industrial specific equipment is very expensive and can be out-of-reach for private training providers like NWTC - a registered charity that was established in Merseyside in 1963. 

“The donation of a can labelling machine will be a great advantage to us in supporting the training of engineering apprentices in a realistic simulated environment, as companies like Nutricia use some of the most innovative, modern and technically automated equipment available to manufacture  medical nutrition products for patients.” 

Nutricia Advanced Medical Nutrition produces specialist medical nutrition for children and adults with life threatening metabolic disorders as well as products for children with cow's milk protein allergy. It is part of the Danone group, which produces well known household brands such as Volvic, Evian and Activia. Its manufacturing plant based in Wavertree Technology Park employs over 330 staff, half of whom manufacture specialist medical nutrition products for use in the UK as well as for export across the world.
