" As our business grew, we needed to
upgrade, " Byrd said. " Recently we've been
working with MULTIVAC on an automated line
to help load our vacuum packaging machine.
They gave us multiple potential solutions for
the various lines we had.
" We wanted to consider all our options, so
we asked them [MULTIVAC] what we should
do. They've got some great engineers who

small quantities. It may not be super-efficient,
but we're trying to serve a lot of different
SKUs and make that fresh product that our
customers have grown to love. That's when
MULTIVAC came in and said, you need a
solution that's not just automated for one
product, it needs to be able to function for
various types of products. "
