The Little Champion CHALLENGE!!!!

After producing the John Hunt Little Champion for over 90 years, debate has sparked within the Alma Works, as to how many presses an hour can a trained user do on our manual machine? We advertise the machine as doing 300 - 400 presses an hour which gives somewhere between 5 & 7 presses a minute! Which is fantastic! but some here feel up to a 1000 per hour is possible???

We need your help to prove who is the number 1 Little Champion operator in the world! and just how many presses can it do?

The winner of the challenge will receive a unique trophy of historical significance. Enter your operator now!

Little Champion Challenge - Coronavirus update from our MD:

"The idea behind the Little Champion Challenge, was a bit of fun, not to be taken too seriously - but still a clear and important demonstration of how to improve the productivity of this unique machine. Technique and organisation are key.

Due to current circumstances we are suspending the Challenge until the pandemic has ended. The aim at this stage is to announce the winner at the Foodex 2021 Exhibition at the NEC Birmingham at the new recently announced date - 12-14 April 2021."

 

Existing entries are still valid.

Please do enjoy reliving the moment a legend returned to compete in the #LITTLECHAMPCHALLENGE below - with the volume on of course! :
