APRIL robot development wins £60,000 grant
We are pleased to announce we have received a £60,000 Agri-Tech Growth Grant for the development of our robotic food processing system, APRIL.
The grant will be used to further develop APRIL, our fully automated robotic food manufacturing cell that will boost production, efficiency and improve the quality of food produced.
“OAL is transforming the food manufacturing industry through their technology. The APRIL system will kick-start the industry’s move towards fully automated production lines, allowing food to be produced quicker, with less waste and greater precision.”
Mark Reeve, Chairman of the Eastern Agri-Tech Growth Initiative
A full size demonstration system is being built at the National Centre for Food Manufacturing part of the University Lincoln in Holbeach, Lincolnshire.
