Haden Freeman offers a full range of consultancy, engineering and project management services to the food and beverage industries. Our engineers have worked in production, clean operations and filling and packaging lines, providing the expertise to improve production, reduce waste, treat by-products, design and supply water systems and achieve regulatory compliance.

Recent projects include Diageo and the Scottish Whisky Association (SWA). We assisted the SWA with the development of its Process Functional Safety Plan and Framework Specification Document, which serves as a tool to help members review and assess operational systems.

A passion for quality

Producing fine spirits requires expert knowledge, experience, skill and passion – all qualities you’ll find at Haden Freeman. We have an unrivalled reputation for excellence and quality in engineering and design and fully understand the intricacies of the distilling process; in particular the importance of retaining the ‘character’ of the product throughout. Combine this with our experience, expertise and passion for delivering great design which is both functional and efficient and you’ll see why we’ve undertaken several large scale projects for the world’s most famous distillery groups.

Making your plant work harder

We believe that a plant should work as hard as possible and can provide material and energy balance modelling to improve product yields by removing pinch points, or implementing automated Clean in Place (CIP) systems etc. Additionally our business improvement engineers can perform a company diagnostic, including OEE, TPM, Lean and Six Sigma to ensure that your plant is operating to optimum efficiency.

Mechanical handling

The disgorging and filling of casks can present a variety of challenges. Haden Freeman has the knowledge and expertise to design and specify systems and kit which are safe, accurate, highly efficient and state-of-the-art – for example, simultaneous and automated filling and disgorging of 6 barrels at a time.
