Bakery: Glue Reduction
LESS GLUE. GREATER SAVINGS.
A portion of our company’s glue usage comes from the construction of our pie carrier cartons and cases. In 2014, of the 22,000 total pounds of glue we used, 7,350 was in carrier cartons. In 2015, we reduced usage by 2,200 pounds for a 30% reduction in glue for our carrier cartons. We plan to install a new glue machine soon to yield the same results on the pie case boxes for even greater savings.
