Feed & food safety is the driving force behind the design of the new blending and packaging system at Tier 1 Nutritionals. Recent renovations include increased bulk ingredient storage capacity and the installation of new blending and packaging equipment, all designed to enhance the company’s production capacity, product quality, and food safety.

Key features of the plant renovations include:
New high-efficiency blender. Custom-designed and built, the new blender boasts enhanced clean-out features that promote food safety and reduce the likelihood of cross contamination between products and production runs.

Upgraded finished product packaging system. Innovatively designed and custom built, it possesses enhanced product flow and clean-out features—features that support the company’s food safety programs, and reduce the likelihood of cross contamination between products.

Upgraded bulk ingredient storage capacity. Five new, increased-capacity bulk ingredient storage bins boost onsite bulk ingredient storage by 30%.

Upgraded bulk ingredient weigh-out and transfer equipment. Improving precision and throughput capacity of bulk ingredients.

New high capacity/high efficiency dust collection system. This state-of-the-art dust collection system is designed to minimize airborne particles, resulting in both improved food safety (reduced opportunity for airborne cross contamination) and cleaner and safer work environment for production staff members.

Installation of new elevated blending and packaging system. The vertical orientation of our system maximizes production capacity and efficiency by capitalizing on the power of gravity—eliminating the need for mechanical transport of bulk raw materials and finished product from mixer to packaging line.

“Contract manufacturing high-value, proprietary feed additives requires good equipment, a well-trained staff, and stringent manufacturing practices to protect the integrity of each customer’s product.” , comments Tim Jacobson, Tier 1 Nutritionals’ President.

Additional features include enhanced metal detection systems built into both the raw material and finished product handling systems, and equipment designs to allow increased access for inspection, cleaning, and maintenance of mixing and packaging equipment.
