We're happy to share this food production success story.  The  Flexicon Bulk Bag Handling System played a major roll in the success of this improvement.

Breedlove Foods, Inc., is a producer or nutritious food products for humanitarian relief in the aftermath of hurricanes, earthquakes and other catastrophic events.  Their shelf-stable packages require only water and 30 minutes of cooking time.

Breedlove installed an automated bulk handling system that boosted production of its "Lentil & Vegetable" blend product by sevenfold and improved worker safety.

Wesley Sloan, Breedlove's Maintenance Team Lead explained - "Operators were manually lifting five, 100 pound (45.4 kg) bags of lentils in order to add them to the mixers".

Breedlove CEO, Bill Miller says "Before the packaging upgrades, Breedlove's daily production averaged between 200,000 to 500,000 meal servings a day.  Now, we can approach 1,500,000 meal servings a day. We have produced more than 22 million food servings for COVID-19 food relief and the upgrades we completed played an integral part in that response".
