Introduction to Scale Up – “Volume for Vanity; Profit for Sanity”

Scaling up occurs at all stages of your product life cycle and successful scale up and scale back is critical to sustainable business growth.

Understanding the critical considerations in scale up and capacity, and their potential implications on product performance, operational efficiency, profitability and business continuity are key to building for success and unlocking growth. This module enables you to work through the required thinking to understand the impact of the steps required.



Workshop aims

Designed to equip participants with the knowledge needed to scale up production specifically in the food industry.

This workshop is an accessible technically based session which outlines the pitfalls, plans and considerations when choosing to increase operational capacity in your food business.

Scaling up occurs at all stages of your product life cycle and enables business growth. Understanding what is required and the potential implications on product performance and business continuity is key to implementing the right foundation for successful growth.

The session will be divided into five key areas essential to the scaling up process. These are:

  • Definition of scaling up
  • Capacity
  • Critical considerations
  • What does success look like?
  • Will all products scale up?

Lunch will be provided.
