Automating Temperatures to meet Rigorous Food Safety Standards in Texas

Safe Quality Food (SQF) is an international standard for food safety that employs rigorous standards for controlling and monitoring the safety and quality of food products. To achieve Safe Quality Food (SQF) Level 2 Certification, a Hazardous Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) food safety plan designed by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) must be implemented, and manufacturers must routinely pass scheduled and unscheduled audits while demonstrating improvement of strict food management safety protocols.

Supervision and Silo Control for the Dairy Industry

Columbia is one of the highest producers of milk and  dairy products within Latin America. In 2011, the production of milk was about 14,500 lbs.

Automated Batch Process Analysis for the Food and Beverage Industry

Few industries are regulated as closely as the food and beverage industry. Food safety standards are particularly critical to public health, and there are many regulating bodies that audit and dictate the standards that food manufacturers must meet. Among these regulatory bodies are the FDA (Food and Drug Administration in the United States), and independent organizations such as the GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative). Manufacturers of food products are often audited by these agencies for food safety, and as a result, recordkeeping for food manufacturers is vital to the process of food manufacturing and packaging.

Mother Parkers

*Updated from 2005*

Mother Parkers Tea & Coffee Inc. is a leading Canadian owned and operated producer of quality tea and coffee products in the North American marketplace.  In June, 2001 it started up a $25-million, 100,000-sq.-ft. Greenfield plant at Fort Worth, Texas. This highly-automated plant had a starting capacity to roast, grind, blend and package private-label coffees at a rate of 20 million lbs. per year, since expanded to over 130 million lbs. per year, and it currently manufactures more than 600 SKUs. Three years after startup, it added a new packaging line to expand production of private labeled cans of coffee.  The additional line consisted of used equipment which needed to be retrofitted with controls in order to be updated. This project has since grown from one production line within the facility, to encompass the monitoring system for every production line.

Stock America and InduSoft Meet Tough Standards in The Food and Beverage Industry

Goods prepared by the food and beverage industry must understandably go through a rigorous process of preparation that requires oversight to ensure that everything adheres to federal regulations in terms of safety and stability. This oversight ensures that the food and beverages we consume are safe, regulated, and prepared in a manner that will protect consumers from food borne bacteria. Because each product cannot be individually inspected in the United States by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture), and the machines that are used in food preparation here, and in countries that must meet similar regulations, meet strict criteria for compliance with safety regulations.

Controltemp SL Enables Culinary Delight

Famine, disease, and social unrest. For centuries these have been the inevitable result of societies who were unable to reliably produce and protect their food supply. 20th and 21st century technology, though, have—for the first time in history—enabled humans to grow plentiful amounts of food, avoid crop failures, and efficiently deliver it to market. SCADA software such as InduSoft plays a large role in food production and storage.
