A Norwich food processing equipment manufacturer has completed its first direct deal in the Middle East with a project for a crisp factory.

Fabcon Food Systems, based in Delta Close, has provided systems for a £1.5m production line in a new Kuwait factory, built and owned by the AlWazzan Foodstuff Industries Group.

Fabcon, which has a team of 24 people, installed a range of pre-processing equipment for crisp production, including frying, seasoning and distribution structures.

Trevor Howard, managing director of Fabcon Food Systems, said: 'We were approached by AlWazzan's owner Muntaser AlWazzan after he learned about our expertise in building batch crisp lines. The purpose-built factory is hugely innovative and the facility is an exciting new venture in a new market for Muntaser and his company. They now have a 21st century production plant to support their business as it quickly expands across the region.'
