Crofter's Foods is a family-owned business that produces a variety of fruit spreads, conserves, jellies and jams made from all natural ingredients. In 2016, the company built the new Greenfield manufacturing plant in Seguin, Ontario, which included state of the art technologies and packaging systems to cement its position as a market leader. This facility can package up to 150,000 jars of product per shift, depending on product and container sizes.
As a very early organic producer of any sort of organic products around, they felt it was important to have an advanced label printing and label verification was developed to support consumer desire to learn more about the raw ingredients in their product. In addition, other upgrades included a checkweigher to ensure product accuracy and laser-based product coding, a metal detection system to inspect the bulk product before it makes its way to the filling stations to ensure optimal food safety and quality control at that critical stage, and a vision inspection system.
