Bakery: Glue Reduction
LESS GLUE. GREATER SAVINGS.
A portion of our company’s glue usage comes from the construction of our Bakery pie carrier cartons and cases. In 2014, of the 22,000 total pounds of glue usage, 7,350 was just in carrier cartons. In 2015, we reduced usage on the carrier cartons by 2,200 pounds for a 30% reduction. In 2017, we installed a new glue machine for reduced usage of glue on the pie case boxes. This improvement reduced glue usage by another 2,800 pounds for a 40% annually reduction.
