Hello again! It’s just past mid-January and things are already moving and shaking...and popping!

Product, Process, and Packaging News:

The Winter Fancy Food Show -- a production of the Specialty Food Association -- occurred in San Francisco on 13-15 January 2019. One of our longtime distributors, The Revere Group, which specializes in food-safe and flexible packaging, exhibited at the show. They’re one of our go-to vendors for product packaging used in the weigh+fill process.

In amongst the fancy foods on display was gourmet popcorn. We love popcorn and our popcorn customers and they seem to love their Logical Machines.

Logical Q&A: In celebration of National Popcorn Day on 19 January 2019 (Which begs the question: Why not celebrate popcorn all week, all month, and all year!):

Q: “I’m hand-scooping popped corn into bags. How many bags of popped corn can I fill with a Logical Machine?”
A: If, for instance, you’re filling two 6 oz. bags per minute, by hand-scooping and hand-weighing, of popped corn per minute, it’s possible to increase the speed & accuracy of your bagging by upwards of 4x...which leads to a necessary increase in your production and sales...with a Model S-4 - The Perfect Popcorn Filling Machine.
