The area allocated to the operation was remodelled in the 1980s. In particular, the section used for powder blending and filling into pouches was created from scratch in 1996 to accommodate large-volume blending equipment and allow for use of flow-bins in feeding the packaging plant. During recent years the Department has been upgraded through the acquisition of new equipments.
