Dynamic Operations

Miniat utilizes the fundamentals of lean manufacturing in our operations. This methodology results in reduced waste, improved workflow, and increased production. When combined with our continuous improvement practices and proprietary technology, we can efficiently produce high volumes of products across a variety of capabilities and processes.

We also leverage agile manufacturing principles that benefit our customers’ evolving needs. This approach pivots manufacturing from a standardized production line to a flexible, customer-specific workflow. We can design new, flexible, and product-specific production processes, by shifting equipment to accommodate the execution of different Culinary Attributes and Custom Processes required to efficiently produce your new recipe. The agile approach also allows us to easily support short production runs for new or regional product introductions, as well as jointly explore new technology to expand upon our core capabilities as your product assortment or menu evolves.

Our R&D and Operations teams love to collaborate with customers to develop innovative methods to manufacture their products.
