National Grocer Upgrade Nets Them More Bread

When a national grocery chain's Calgary, Alberta bread making facility wanted to boost productivity, they needed TriCore to upgrade their Bread Plant Supervisory control System. Upgrades included automated controls for their wheat flour and white flour handling systems, raw ingredient delivery systems and batch mixers, as well as Ethernet network integration for additional production equipment, including dividers, pan systems, proofers, oven, slicers, baggers, and basket loader systems. Plus, TriCore implemented an automated batch scheduler, formula editor, mixing reports, and hand scaling system. In total, TriCore’s solutions resulted in increased plant efficiency, significantly reduced downtime, a streamlined process, quality improvements, and enhanced visibility for the entire production system.
