Increasing demand for both supply and quality has led to innovations in the way we process our food. Whether aiming for greater efficiencies, increasing yields, reducing waste, or looking at alternative ingredients, innovations in the food industry have occurred both in product and process development. In product development, we are seeing a demand for higher quality ingredients, and alternatives such as plant-based proteins. In process development, there is a greater focus on food safety, working to ensure a clean final product at the consumer level.
Bepex has long provided continuous food process systems into a variety of segments and applications. Our origins date back to the Minneapolis (Mill City) grain and flour industry of the early 1900s, as well as the vast California central valley produce industry. We have over a century of experience developing systems and providing support for the world’s largest food producers.
Our goal has always been rooted in the development of a continuous process, to support your product development. We have implementations at each traditional stage of development. Have an idea for a more functional ingredient but not sure how to develop the process? Rely on our bench analysis to determine key material properties and operational feasibility. Need to simulate a continuous process system on the pilot scale? Our 25,000 ft² Process Development Center offers the chance to do just that. Already have a process in place that could use optimizing? Allow us to review and offer our suggestions for increasing consistency, quality, or efficiency.
