Glanbia Nutritionals opens new processing facility

Glanbia Nutritionals, Sioux Falls, S.D.

Glanbia Nutritionals Inc. unveiled a new, food-grade grain-processing facility in Sioux Falls, S.D. The 63,000-sq.-ft. ingredient plant produces MeadowPure flaxseed ingredients as well as a growing portfolio of chia, quinoa and other ancient grain ingredient solutions.

The next-generation grain facility features closed-loop processing to eliminate foreign materials or contaminants from entering the facility or process. Grain handling is entirely internal, with no external grain unloading or grain bin storage, thus reducing the risk of exposure of raw material to potential contaminants. Safe Quality Food (SQF) 2000-certified, the plant accepts and handles only 99.9% pure, food-grade raw material.

Designed to exceed the requirements of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), the facility uses filtered, positive pressured air to eliminate outside air from entering the building, further protecting and preserving product quality. Special segregation zones ensure additional food safety and quality control through positive pressure HEPA filtered air. Furthermore, the facility stipulates specific entry criteria, which include dedicated uniforms, footwear and cleaning tools within the rooms. The facility is also designed with distinct areas for deliveries, keeping the inside environment entirely separate from the outside.
