New “Bettcher Bytes” Blog Launched
July 10, 2013 – We are pleased to announce the launch of the “Bettcher Bytes” blog. The blog touches on a broad range of topics pertaining to food processors and the food processing industry. Our focus is on providing “quick read” news that is timely, informative, and worth passing along to your colleagues.
What sort of topics does our blog cover? A little bit of everything, such as:
- Important industry and regulatory developments
- How processors are improving their plant operations
- Changing trends in consumer tastes for various types of food products and menu items
In our ongoing dealings with processors of beef, pork, lamb, poultry and seafood products throughout North America and beyond, we’re learning about the ways they’re improving their plant operations, enhancing worker productivity, and driving more profits to the bottom line. Through the use of trimming technology and other processing techniques, some plants are achieving dramatic improvements.
We invite you to visit our blog, join in the conversation, and to come back regularly. We post fresh news items each week that are designed to educate and inform. And to make sure you don’t miss new posts, be sure to sign up for e-alerts which we’re happy to send to you whenever new articles are uploaded.
