GloryBee Foods Conveys Ingredients Having Disparate Particle Sizes And Bulk Densities Without Separating Blends

Flexicon Corporation

GloryBee Foods, founded in 1975 as a one-man operation selling honey, is a leading manufacturer and distributor of organic food products. The family-run business still sells honey and other liquid sweeteners, but it also markets a broad assortment of spices, herbs, trail mixes, flours, grains, baking mixtures, rice, beans, pasta and other dry bulk foods. The diverse product line requires the operation to convey bulk materials having dissimilar particle sizes, bulk densities and flow characteristics to a filling machine—undamaged and with no separation of blended products.
