OBJECTIVE

After an incredible collaboration with Foster Farms, Livingston, CA; Foodmate and Foster Farms collaborated again, in Farmerville, LA. The goal was to improve quality of final product, reduce labor, improve flow and increase yield. Because of the plant’s product mix, it was critical to maximize flow. In doing so, the plant would be able to reduce WIP and unnecessary staffing thus reducing plant cost and increasing yield while improving the quality of the product. Foodmate worked closely with Foster Farm’s engineering and plant management to determine proper product flow.

FOODMATE SOLUTION AND END RESULTS

The installation lasted approximate 10 days, Foodmate brought an extensive crew of engineers, project managers, service technicians, electricians and installers to ensure project run smoothly . 

Our experience with the Foodmate team was a very good one. There is a sincere desire to see us succeed. And they did, our daily operations has improved 100%, no doubt. The entire system allowed us to improve yields, efficiency, decrease labor, improve quality, and reduce product handling. The bird gets hung and when it’s dropped it’s ready to be shipped.”  stated Tim Biron, General Manager.
