Considerations for Food & Seed Handling

What Problems are facing the industry?

The handling of food, seeds and grains – regardless of your industry or application – can offer up quite a few challenges that are critical to running, sustaining and growing your business.

Using the humble heavy storage bags can lead to many potential issues, including the requirement for physical manual labour, bringing with it OH&S and safety concerns, while the bags themselves are prone to failure and pest invasion.

Maintaining freshness can be troublesome when using traditional bag storage methods and something many operators look to mitigate while also considering consumers’ changing tastes and awareness.

  • Reducing the requirement and risks for manual handling
  • Precision and repeatability of recipes and consistency of product
  • Cleaning and dust reduction options available

How do they affect operations?

From coffee houses and bespoke breweries to seed cleaning, sugar, flower and food wholesalers to packaging and processing, ensuring repeatability and authenticity while scaling your business is undoubtedly a high priority.  

While double and quadruple handlings of the same bulk bad of product may seem economical, it also puts your people under strain and is incredibly inefficient in the scheme of your system, however large or small.

These issues alone can make it hard for your business to be competitive – while staying true to your vision – and delivering a crafted product to your customers that you can be proud of and they enjoy.
