Improving Food Production with Conveyors

Dec 9, 2022 | Food Processing & Packaging

With growing pressure to increase food production to meet demand while complying with strict food safety regulations, food producers have to rely on the latest technology and equipment. 


At Garvey, we focus on helping food manufacturers increase their throughput by implementing accumulation on their line. Through Garvey solutions, companies can increase throughput by up to 30% while minimizing product and label damage and reducing food safety issues.


One key component of any food handling and processing system is the conveyors used to get the products from Point A to Point B in the fastest, safest way possible.


Dorner is one of our partners at Columbus McKinnon we work with frequently to help companies achieve faster speeds, efficiency, and industry-leading sanitation levels on the production line.

How Do Dorner Conveyors Stand Out in the Competition?


Conveyors have been used for centuries to minimize human labor in moving products and materials from one station to another. Today’s modern conveyors can be custom designed for various systems and can be sanitized much faster and more effectively to meet stringent food safety requirements.  


Dorner conveyors, in particular, have achieved a stellar track record in helping food manufacturers accomplish their production and sanitation goals. 


They have helped companies in the food industry achieve faster cleanup speeds through its own world-class food handling and processing conveyors, complete with its unique hygienic design. 


Their customers can enjoy twice the cleanup speeds as the competition, three sanitary levels configured to their application, and assurance that their equipment complies with the latest food safety regulations, standards, and certifications,

What Are the Benefits of Using Conveyors for Food Handling and Processing


Today’s modern conveyors can include a wide range of solutions to fit the needs of the food industry. We can work with you to design a solution that reflects your target rate, space, equipment, labor, and products. 


When you have a conveyance system that fits your needs, you will experience the following benefits:


Fewer Labor Costs


Conveyors eliminate the need for manual labor to transport products from one part of the line to another between long distances and varying elevations. This allows companies to reallocate their labor force to more appropriate tasks and processes. And because Dorner conveyors can be cleaned up faster with toolless disassembly, less labor time is also needed for sanitation. 


Higher Food Safety Standards


Dorner conveyors are designed for today’s food safety standards and can be custom designed with many conveyor accessory add-ons to meet your industry’s safety requirements. They are BISSC & USDA certified and only made with FDA-approved materials and components. 


Their conveyors ensure products and materials aren’t exposed to dust and other contaminants and eliminate other issues that cause compliance issues and affect a plant’s environment. Dorner also provides training programs and other services to ensure your environment is safe and hygienic to handle and process foods.
