It’s the name given to not only the town itself, but also the surrounding bay, the county in which it’s located, the local high school and Tillamook County Creamery Association, a 112-year-old cooperative that calls the area home.
The emergence of COVID-19 early this year precipitated immediate and far-ranging changes in all types of workplace learning. When it comes to ensuring food safety in equipment design and operation, COVID-19 did not change the imperative for training, but it accelerated the implementation of digital and virtual learning programs.
Selecting the optimal packaging for their specific products and operating infrastructures can be an onerous endeavor for dairy processors. Companies seeking to maximize product quality, operating efficiencies and revenues must sort through a growing plethora of rigid and flexible options that consist of varying materials and elements.
While operators have a wide range of technology options for detecting foreign objects and guarding against potential pathogens during processing and packaging, implementing and maintaining the optimal equipment can be challenging.
On-Demand: The need for food and beverage processors to drive down unit costs never ends. How can new/retrofitted plants be designed to optimize productivity? What solutions will have the biggest influence on productivity?
On Demand: Using cost-effective design solutions, food and beverage processing facilities can meet the rigorous performance demands required in a processing and production environment and, at the same time, focus on sustainability.
On Demand: Exclusively for thought-leaders in food and beverage processing facility management, Food Plant of the Future webinars are presented by Hixson, a leading design and engineering firm of food processing facilities in North America.
