New Manufacturing and Distribution Facility is Now Open
Honeyville's new 200,000 square foot facility located
in the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains, Ogden,
Utah, is now open. This investment by the familyowned company provides increased production and
distribution capacity while ensuring continued safe,
quality food products for food manufacturers, food
distributors and retail customers. Within the next two
years, the project will have created approximately 90
new jobs.

"We also built isolated production rooms with
dedicated HVAC systems to eliminate the risk of
airborne cross-contamination."

The new facility consolidates Honeyville's Brigham
City and Salt Lake operations and features state-ofthe-art blending systems, heat treatment systems
and diverse packaging lines, including cupping,
canning, flexible packaging and fulfillment. Advanced technologies throughout the production process
improve product quality and consistency. Fluidized
paddle blenders provide ultra-fast blend times and
even blend dispersions without heating or damaging
product. A cutting-edge manufacturing execution
system ensures the correct ingredients are used in
the proper amounts.

"The new quality assurance lab allows us to do
many tests in house, decreasing the amount of time
a product is on hold following production," says
Marchant. "This improves our ability to be responsive
to quality inquiries and decreases our production
lead time to customers."

"We've built this facility with product quality as a
top priority. Our cooled air pneumatic conveying
system protects the product by moving it through
cooled lines, keeping it from overheating and
causing discoloration and other damage," says Layne
Marchant, Plant Manager at the new Ogden location.

The fully equipped research and development
lab allows for in-house product development and
reformulations. A test kitchen enables customers to
pull samples right off the line and to evaluate their

The new facility includes expanded warehousing
operations, which offer enhanced services to the
Midwest and the East Coast. This facility, along with
Honeyville's other sites in Arizona, California, Ohio
and Utah, serves customers throughout the U.S. and
the Pacific Rim.
The new building also houses a retail outlet store. It is
the place for consumers and businesses of all sizes to
shop for food storage, bulk wheat and grains, baking
mixes, emergency preparedness items, water storage
and much more.
