Packaged meatballs are one of the leading products for an industry-leading meat manufacturer.
Their product flies off grocery store shelves, and they’d like to expand into convenience stores and dollar stores. And while they do sell their meatballs in club stores, their current packaging simply isn’t efficient.

Effective sanitation is an area that all food processors must continually work to improve.
