After the events of Sept. 11, 2001, anthrax scares and other chemical and bio-terrorism threats, many food manufacturers have re-evaluated food security issues, especially those products that go directly to the consumer.
Good Humor-Breyers was looking to provide tamper evidence on all of its tubs and cartons of ice cream. Since Axon Corp., Raleigh, N.C., had originally supplied one tamper evident banding machine to Good Humor's Framingham, Mass. plant in July, 2000, the ice cream maker turned to them again. "Eventually, we wanted to add the value of a tamper band to our other Breyers products to further respond to this growing request," says Tim Markowicz, dir. of development & quality assurance at Good Humor-Breyers.
