Food Processing Company

This meat processing company sought to develop a meatball with an extended shelf life of nine months and a sodium content of 240 milligrams per serving. For experimentation, they assessed alternative ingredient formulations to meet the nine month requirement. They evaluated different meatball products of varying meat and sodium compositions, ultimately developing a meatball product with 240 milligrams of sodium per serving. However, they found that the meatball lost its form and did not meet the shelf life requirements when the sodium was decreased.

Food Processing and Manufacturing Company

A company developed improved production processes to eliminate certain bacteria and meet FDA requirements. This encompassed several strategies to improve their facilities and production processes to reduce the presence of the bacteria. They improved the entire production facility by evaluating various materials and upgraded the walls, ceilings and added stainless steel flashing to reduce the likelihood of contaminantion on these surfaces. Additionally, new sanitation systems such as a color coded glove system and dedicated employee clothing were tested to prevent cross contamination.

Food Processing and Manufacturing Company

This project entailed the development of a large processing line, including 30 pieces of equipment. The company was contracted to retrofit several existing rooms and systems, providing all programming, equipment, automation, and material handling to provide optimal performance. Multiple iterations were developed to meet all project parameters. A custom system dealing with high viscosity brine and a highly unique set of tanks was created to deal with a protein application requiring very high polishing, measurement and climate control.
