AFS is enjoying a sweet taste of success!

The compressed air & liquid filtration specialists AFS are enjoying a sweet taste of success having delivered an innovative solution to a large UK chocolate manufacturer.

The company was commissioned by Kinnerton confectionery to support a £140,000 investment in improving process consistency and food safety at their site in North Yorkshire.
