Old and new together at Nestle. (News & Installations).

Russell Finex, the fine mesh separation technologists, held a competition to celebrate its 65th birthday anniversary. The task - to find the oldest sieve still in regular use in the UK and Ireland. The winners were Nestle's York factory who had a Suspension sieve which has been in use for over sixty years. The prize - a brand new Compact sieve, which has now been installed at the York factory working alongside the original winning Suspension sieve.

This original Russell sieve was built in the early 1930's by the company's founder, Justin Hurst, and purchased by Rowntree in the early 1940's. It is used today to strain Black Magic chocolate.
