HEALTHY CHOICES foodswing inc. FoodSwing does not own its own brands but processes products strictly for private label, other brand owners, major retail food chains, commercial foodservice suppliers and quick-serve restaurant chains with hundreds of locations that want consistency in their pasta sauces and gravies. “It’s a better program to use us versus allowing the local guy to make it himself, and a 2-liter box is infinitely better than a No. 10 can,” Hoffman asserts. “A No. 10 can takes up an enormous amount of space, has to be cleaned and crushed, and it’s got jagged edges. With a box, you squeeze it out, mash and toss the box. If you’re in a school or a prison, you don’t want cans because they become weapons. Prisons and schools are very happy to be rid of No. 10 cans. That end of the market is moving very quickly to adopt the larger format boxes. They’re easy to handle, store and dispose of.” FoodSwing also offers product development services. “You can come and co-develop something with us,” Hoffman remarks. “We really have positioned ourselves to be a full-service aseptic shop.” tion. “We happen to be in a terrific zone – we can get anywhere,” Hoffman stresses. “We’re shipping around the world. Right now, we’ve got six containers of chicken broth leaving for Asia.

International Distribution Establishing a full-service processing facility like FoodSwing’s requires substantial investment. “We have a few guys who have the courage to start up something and get in the game,” Hoffman remarks. “It’s a very expensive game.” FoodSwing has spent in excess of $22 million automating a stainless steel fortress of cookers, tanks, dicers, pureeing machines, blending, liquefying and milling equipment – all just to prepare for the aseptic processing and filling operation. Because of the expense, setting up additional facilities requires careful consideraSIG COMBIBLOC SIG Combibloc is a leading system supplier of carton packaging and filling machines for food products.
