Customer MANufacturing success stories

Pancake Mix Client Improves Production Process

Over 200 million people in the United States buy pancake mix . Consumers love this comfort food that is easy to make.

Our client had a problematic multi-step process for producing his pancake mix. He purchased a pancake mix, added his custom flavors, and then sent it to another processor to put in retail pouches. This process was time-consuming and costly, as it involved expensive shipping.

We helped him consolidate all those steps in our facility and controlled the process. We also improved his process with top-of-the-line blending service, high-quality ingredients, and custom packaging.
