With health and wellness trends dominating the Food and Beverage industry, manufacturers are seeking new equipment to help support maintaining their "healthy" quality throughout the supply chain.
Pfannenberg products ensure that manufacturing operations are up and running - especially during the holidays when many manufacturing lines are always online. Read below on just a few example applications on how Pfannenberg supports these product lines and keeps them running.
Part 1 – Candy Canes:
Candy Canes - The go-to holiday candy. As a child, they are passed out and enjoyed by many, and as adults they are necessary for almost any holiday decoration. This peppermint candy involves very delicate care when being processed. There are many differences in temperature to heat up or cool down – just enough that it maintains flavor and will not ruin the product quality. All throughout the manufacturing process of candy canes, temperatures are critical. At certain stages, the temperature needs to be increased to help form the canes, then at other parts it needs to be cooled so that it can be mixed to perfect flavor and coloring.
Tis’ the season – for we have many things to be thankful for this year! With the holiday season quickly approaching, we are taking the time to reflect on all of our blessings. Common dishes for most Traditional American Thanksgivings include turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, green bean casseroles, fresh baked rolls, and pumpkin pie. Most of us look forward to this holiday all year, for it is a time to be thankful and gather with loved ones.
Turkey processors themselves have to really work all year to meet this spike in demand around the holidays. Innovation in new packaging technology allows these processors to be able to serve a fresh Turkey that has a longer shelf life without chemicals. Pfannenberg’s thermal management and chiller products are a perfect fit for aiding in the packaging side of Turkey processing.

In today’s modern lifestyle, frozen foods have played a major role in providing convenience to customers. Pies – a family fall favorite, often take time that many families do not have. This is the time of the year where kids are back to school, parents are running all over doing drop-offs and pick-ups, rushing to work; taking the time to bake or make a full meal is often difficult. Large industrial bakeries can manufacture roughly 200,000 frozen pies a day. There is a high demand in this modern age for this aspect of convenience.
From the Farm to the Factory
When the trucks arrive at the factory, the milk and cream are pumped into storage silos and kept cool at 36°F until they are ready to begin the process.
Hot dogs – a staple summer treat that brings back memories of family cookouts and baseball games. It is an American favorite summertime food! Hot dogs go through a series of complex processes that combine the ingredients into their delicious final form and Pfannenberg's PWS Air to Water Heat Exchangers are perfect to keep things running.
With the next round of Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) updated regulations taking into effect September, food processing companies are scurrying to make sure their facilities are up to code. The newest set of updates will support efforts into the quick responses to food/beverage related emergencies (contamination, expired products, recalls, and foreign materials). The new amendments also require that the FDA inspect the food production facility every two years to make sure that the facility and products adhere to all regulations.
