The small town of Arkansas City, Kan., also known as Ark City, is home to the Cowley County Waterfall, which Yahoo Travel included in its 2014 "Top 12 Most Beautiful Waterfalls in America" list. It is also home to a decidedly less touristy, but arguably equally fascinating, "attraction": a KanPak US dairy processing facility that employs aseptic technologies to create custom shelf-stable liquid-based products for quick-service restaurants, retail and other customers.
An old adage says: "If you want something done right, do it yourself." This saying perfectly encapsulates the operations of Rutter's Dairy, which produces fluid milk along with some juice and tea products at its York, Pa.-based plant.
Automation is increasingly becoming the answer for greater efficiencies and efficacy in dairy warehouse operations. Processors are enhancing supply chain and logistics functions and other warehousing responsibilities with technologies intended to streamline worker expenses while enhancing productivity.
Process Expo returns to the South Hall of McCormick Place for the 2021 edition.
March 18, 2021
The Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) said Process Expo —the nation’s largest trade show showcasing all aspects of the food and beverage processing and packaging industry — will have new dates and halls for the 2021 event.
Pumps and valves can be a dairy processor's secret weapon for maximizing plant efficiencies and producing superior products. Being able to move liquids swiftly and safely through piping can reduce operating expenses while enhancing food quality.
On Demand In this webinar, you will be introduced to advanced in-line blending, dosing and mixing technologies that offer high flexible productions, reduced product losses, shorter batch times, uniform products, and reduced ingredient costs. As a result, Food Manufacturers can optimize their productions and increase their profitability.
ON DEMAND: This webinar will discuss how dairy processors could step up food safety efforts through the establishment of a food safety culture and enhancement of food-safety program inspections and audits.
ON DEMAND: For over 40 years, the cup has been the most common package format for yogurts and on-the-go prepared foods. Easy to stack, improved shelf life and well embraced by the market. The cup will not disappear, but the marketplace is shifting, and a balance between different packaging formats is important for any brand.
ON DEMAND: Many dairy plants are moving their analytics to continuous inline technology for process measurements and control. Over the years, this technology has required frequent calibration adjustments and high maintenance costs for continued uptime.
ON DEMAND: Spiral wound reverse osmosis and nanofiltration elements have been critical technologies in producing dairy ingredients for well over thirty years. While some streams were considered waste from dairies 30-40 years ago, innovations in technology have allowed these streams to be converted into valuable products.
ON DEMAND: In this webinar, we discover these comprehensive dairy testing technologies for compositional screening. We also meet the RVA for functionality testing, which elucidates the effects of processing and synergy on ingredient performance. How are some operations so agile?
Dairy food processors face a constant onslaught from pests. In and outbound deliveries, tight hiding spaces and their unique equipment increase pest pressures and often require a different approach! Read More
Food safety is a critical focus among dairy processors — and for good reason. Product contamination — and the recalls and potential illnesses associated with it — can be costly and hurt a brand’s image. Read More
Waukesha Cherry-Burrell has developed an advanced PMO design to maximize production time and cleaning flexibility. The W75CP is a double-seat PMO mix proof valve for dairy applications suitable for safe separation of product from CIP solution including single seat-lift operation.
For the U.S. Dairy Industry and users of dairy ingredients, changes to the Pasteurized Milk Ordinance (PMO) regulations in March 2007 allowed seat-lift cleaning of Mix Proof valves while milk or milk products were in the opposite housing.
