The Importance of Changeover
Efficient changeover plays a key role in successful baking and food production. In the past, the process of converting a machine or line from running one product to another was a time-consuming task; now, with the broader variations in product offerings, changeover can be done easily thanks to innovation.
How Palermo Maximizes Production
Life under the COVID-19 pandemic may present itself in a different format than what we’re used to, but it does continue on. Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, and graduations are still celebrated across the globe, which means there remains a popular demand for cakes and baked goods.
Implementing Cake Decorating Machines
Whether we’re talking about retail, food service, or even home baking, cakes remain a dominant dessert. It’s no wonder; cakes are versatile as a celebration food, ubiquitous at any and all types of social gatherings, and as snacks in the form of patisserie cakes, cupcakes, cake pops, or individual cake slices.
Hidden Production Expenses
The hidden costs of production are not always obvious. However, they are cumulative, so it’s important for food and bakery plant owners to regularly comb through their processes, whether they’re in regards to employee training, the supply chain, production, or post-production.
Tips for Increasing Batter Portion Accuracy
The impact of inconsistent depositing on production time, efficiency, and cost is significant. Inaccurate depositing is a hit on the overall profit, as bakeries cannot charge extra for products that weigh more than the label weight. Here we offer tips for accurate batter portions.
Making Your Bakery More Appealing for the Holidays
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! People flock to bakeries during the holiday season, and bakeries must work harder to keep up with the demand for holiday cakes, cookies, and other seasonal desserts. The most wonderful time of the year also happens to be the busiest time of the year.
Creating a Food Safety Culture
Food safety protects consumers from dire health consequences such as food poisoning, allergic reactions, and food-borne illnesses. Outside of health consequences, following food safe best practices also protects businesses from penalties such as lawsuits, fines, and facility closures.
Ergonomics Matter for Food Production Facilities
People who work in bakeries and food plants face many physical stressors on a daily basis. Lifting heavy weights, repetitive motions, bending over pans and trays, and walking steps from station to station (often while carrying heavy items) are just a few of the tasks that can cause musculoskeletal injuries in the body.
Global Food & Bakery Production Trends
The bakery industry is currently facing a shortage of available labor due to the unprecedented impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and due to long-term factors that include an ageing workforce, fewer people entering the trade, a lack of trained candidates, and government policies that impact staff accessibility.
