Angel Yeast announced the opening of its latest food ingredient factory, with facilities that enable automated operation and improved quality control with smart production lines. The smart factory optimizes the company’s production process and upgrades its product offerings. Angel Yeast said it will now be able to supply natural, greener and nutritious raw materials for baked foods and pastries. The company has announced increased investments to establish R&D hubs and technology centers for bakery products around the world.
The factory features a packaging workshop equipped with the latest automated high-speed packaging machine, capable of completing 65 packs per minute, which drastically increases the single-machine production capacity, the company explains. The factory also features both de-stacking robots and railed guided vehicles, for fully autonomous, efficient operations.
