Capitol Food Company headquartered in Cerritos, Calif., announced that it has made significant financial investments resulting in improved efficiency in their blending and packaging facility located in La Mirada, Calif. CFC is a provider of conventional and organic ingredients to the food and baking industry throughout the United States.
The company will continue its aggressive growth for years to come. The improved manufacturing facility is Certified Organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, Kosher, Halal and holds SQF Certification.
The La Mirada facility has three separate dry blending lines for ingredients, allowing transfer from silo and tank systems for blending. Ingredients may be unloaded from bulk trucks or bulk rail cars. All products are tested for quality before being unloaded.
The facility is also equipped with liquid repacking capabilities and presently packs edible oils, corn syrups, glycerin and all types of vinegars. Ingredients are repacked into intermediate bulk containers (IBC), disposable totes or steel/plastic drums. A kosher certified refurbishing and cleaning system allows recycling or reuse of IBC totes. The refurbished ‘liquid packing room’ has effectively doubled its output with regards to blending and packing.
