Filling Machines for Artisan Food Producers- July 17th 2019


Riggs Autopack is an award-winning British manufacturer of high-quality volumetric filling machines. They are a UK market leader with an excellent reputation and supply their equipment to the food production industry.

The main stay of the company is their Model 1000 range of semi-automatic filling machines, designed specifically for artisans and small-scale food producers that require quick product changeovers and short batch runs.

Manually filling containers can be exhausting and time consuming, often meaning much of the working week can be spent in production fulfilling orders, which in turn can then impact on other areas of the business such as winning new orders and bidding for supermarket contracts.

By using a Riggs Autopack semi-automatic filling machine, there can be huge time and production savings resulting in dramatic benefits for small scale food producers. Here’s what a small selection of our customers have had to say:


Mark Butler (Twist Condiments) “I'm very impressed with our machine. To say I'm pleased is an understatement and I can see this filling machine will transform my business. I used to dread filling jars by hand and now it's no bother!”

Mark Whitehead (The Hawkshead Relish Company) “Riggs Autopack has been excellent to deal with. We've been thoroughly impressed with the filling machine and it’s easy to use features, which has given us extra flexibility and the capacity to expand our product ranges even further.”

Hugh Monroe (Christine's Cheshire Preserves) “Pleased isn't the word we'd use to describe the opinion of our filling machine. We're delighted. Really couldn't have coped without it, other half poorly and out of action just at the busiest period in our calendar, and just after a 10,000 jars order was secured from a customer. Thank you for all your help and the speed with which you were able to get a filling machine to us.”

Karen Austin (Peckish Kitchen) “We couldn’t live without the Riggs Autopack filling machine now, it’s awesome! We remember what is was like spending hour-upon-hour hand ladling our jam products into jars and we couldn’t go back to that now. Dealing with Riggs Autopack has been a delight.”
