Rice - Form Fill Seal






WFP assists communities to prepare for and cope with the fall out of natural and man made disasters by working to stabilise long-term food and nutrition supplies.                                                        Webster Griffin was asked to work with them on this project for the Visayas disaster response centre in the Philippines as part of a programme to make a stockpile of food packs capable of feeding 500,000 people for three days.


The customer was looking to fill bags with rice for inclusion in family food packs for disaster relief packages.

The following were important objectives for their new machine.

  • Accurate weighing at small bag weights
  • Bags to be stamped with sell by date and batch code
  • Small bag sizes
  • Maintenance and spares kept to a minimum. The programme needed a simple, consistent machine as the remote location would be difficult reach for service personnel and parts.





The commissioning of the system by a Webster Griffin provided the following benefits:

  • Ease of changeover – the machine is self-adjusting for different sizes of bags.
  • High speed bagging with rate achievable up to 60 bags/ minute
