Semi Automatic Depositors for Artisan Food Producers- October 21st 2021


The main stay of Riggs Autopack is the Model 1000 range of semi-automatic depositors, designed for artisans and small-scale food producers that need short batch runs and quick product changeovers.

These machines are available for outright or lease purchase, short or long term hire, and we also provide a no-obligation machine trial at your premises.

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 depositor, there can be huge time and production savings resulting in dramatic benefits for small scale food producers. Here's a selection of customer feedback.

Mark Butler (Twist Condiments) “I'm very impressed with our Riggs Autopack Series 2 depositor. To say I'm pleased is an understatement and I can see this machine will transform my business. I used to dread filling jars by hand and now it's no bother!”

Hugh Monroe (Christine's Cheshire Preserves) “Pleased isn't the word we'd use to describe the opinion of our Series 3 depositor. We're delighted. Really couldn't have coped without it, other half poorly 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 depositor to us.”

Karen Austin (Peckish Kitchen) “We couldn’t live without the Riggs Autopack Series 3 depositor now, it’s awesome! We remember what is was like spending hour-upon-hour hand ladling product into jars and we couldn’t go back to that now. Dealing with Riggs Autopack has been a delight." 

Mark Whitehead (The Hawkshead Relish Company) “Riggs Autopack has been excellent to deal with. We've been thoroughly impressed with the Series 3 depositor and it’s easy to use features, which has given us extra flexibility and the capacity to expand our product ranges even further.”

Oliver Surman (Pegoty Hedge) “We’ve had a great experience working with Riggs Autopack. The whole process of matching our food production requirements against the most appropriate depositor and testing of the machine itself on-site, has been an easy process. The Series 3 depositor has allowed us to work far more efficiently, and smarter too, with an enhanced end-product."

Niraj Bhatt (Previns Fine Indian Foods) “We're extremely pleased with our new Riggs Autopack Series 3 depositor. It's made a huge difference to productivity and our staff couldn’t imagine going back to manufacturing without it. Riggs Autopack have been excellent in their customer service and delivery."
