Food manufacturer's new batching, feeding, and blending equipment saves more than just peanuts
When manual equipment for processing peanut butter wasted raw materials and required a lot of labor, the manufacturer installed automated processing equipment.
Tara Foods, Albany, Ga., makes peanut butter for retail and institutional markets. Kroger distributes most of the peanut butter under the Kroger brand name, but Tara Foods also makes peanut butter under various private labels. The food company's large customer base requires many different peanut butter formulations.
