When it comes to any product, packaging is important. Not only do you want your packaging to do a good job of marketing your product, you have to ensure your packaging protects the product inside from damage or spoilage. This is especially important in the food industry, where poor packaging can lead to ruined products and potential legal liability for food-borne illnesses.

If you enjoy eating a frozen treat every once in a while, you’re not alone. As many as 90% of all U.S. households regularly indulge in some kind of creamy, frozen treat from time to time. The air content in your favorite frozen dessert helps give it the light airy taste rather than it resembling a block of concrete. The more the air, the icier the texture is, the less the air the heavier and denser the texture is. Churning the air in with the mixture is what produces the treat that we call ice cream.
Besides ice cream, frozen yogurt is also a popular treat, especially in warm weather. Here’s everything you need to know about your favorite frozen desserts:
It seems that people every year continue to have more and more places to eat. That’s thanks in large part to big growth in the fast-casual restaurant industry, which includes brands such as Chipotle and Panera, but there also are plenty of new fast food restaurants popping up on a regular basis as well.

That is a huge shift over the past several decades, when people ate about half as much chicken and ate much more beef. The shift has been driven in lar (more…)
When liquids such as oil, water, or cleaning solvents are shipped from the factory, they typically arrive at the manufacturers in 55 gallon drums. It takes drum pumps to safely and cleanly empty these huge, heavy drums. If the term sounds unfamiliar, drum pumps are a sort of mechanism that can pump a liquid of varying viscosity by using two hoses, one to reach the bottom of the drum and one to be the outflow. While drum pumps are a simple enough mechanism, they come in different types when needed, such as diaphragm pumps and sanitary pumps. The type needed is determined by convenience and safety.
