Salad Fresh, one of the market leaders in supplying prepackaged fresh-cuts in Australia, recently underwent an FFE assessment. "Our business is growing at 30% annually and we have plans to further expand our plant. SSA Global Framework for Excellence has allowed us to focus on opportunities for reducing costs and increasing throughput within our existing infrastructure, as well as understanding how to take greater advantage of planned investments to achieve our aggressive goals," said Hugh Baird, general manager of Convenience Foods (trading as Salad Fresh).

"We've developed SSA Global Framework for Excellence to ensure customers gain the return on investment they are anticipating from SSA Global solutions," said Martin Ambrose, global vice president Channels and Business Development, SSA Global.
