The Sartori Co., Plymouth, Wis., is a fourth generation, family-owned and operated cheese manufacturing company. When the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) was signed into law in 2011, one its areas of focus was the loading dock environment. According to FSMA, docks can be a high-risk zone for food defense and facility security. Sara Adams, manager of manufacturing excellence, was charged with implementing new regulations like FSMA and making sure the company’s 300 employees were living by those standards.
“We wanted to use the best equipment possible to ensure compliance with this new food law for the next 20-plus years,” says Adams.
