Bulk dispensers streamline food products manufacturer's operation
Switching to bulk bags and dispensers cut labor and reduced mess for a manufacturer of pizza mix and spice blends.
Old California Sour Dough Pizza Crust & Mining, based in San Francisco, Calif., sells a San Francisco style sourdough pizza mix and spice blends that are shipped to over 30 states, Canada, Japan, and Korea. The food products manufacturer receives truckloads of ingredients, including 50- to 100-pound bags of wheat flour, baking powder, malt, powdered milk, basil, and parsley. Granulated garlic, onion salt, black pepper, and white pepper arrive in 200- to 300-pound barrels. The manufacturer also receives salt, cellulose dextrose, cane sugar, whey, dough conditioner, and flour in 2,000-pound bulk bags.
