Fresno Produce Grows Its School Lunch Business with Faster Packaging Process
Case Study

Fresno Produce Grows Its School Lunch Business with Faster Packaging Process

Fruit and vegetable supplier was first to use FAS SPrint SidePouch® bagger.
Fresno Produce Inc. of Fresno, California, solved a huge food packaging problem by being the first in line to use the FAS SPrint bagger to package individual servings of fruits and vegetables for the Fresno Unified School District. The FAS SPrint enables the company to package up to 30,000 bags per day and has improved Fresno’s efficiency so much that they have won contracts from two other school districts in the area.
Previous Packaging Method
Fresno Produce supplies the school district with pre-packaged fruits and vegetables for their school lunch program. They originally bagged these items by hand using Ziploc® bags, an operation requiring up to 20 workers. Fresno knew that to maintain this business and possibly grow it, they needed to automate the process, and they initially purchased a rebuilt Autobag® H-100D bagger. They needed some help to get the bagger up and running, so they called our northern California salesman, Bart Johnson for help.  Read More...
