To offer maximum flexibility at a competitive price, Erie Foods International has expanded fluid bed agglomeration capabilities in the Rochelle, IL facility with a new pilot system designed to process colors, flavors, sweeteners, starches, functional foods, stabilizers, nutraceuticals and other low volume, value added products. A valuable tool when trial work is needed, the system will allow high cost materials to be produced on a continuous Schugi system in trial quantities of 500-700 pounds vs. full-scale quantities of 6,000-10,000 pounds. The new line also offers short lead times for scheduling trials, to maximize marketing options.
