PARTNERING FOR PERFECTION
A customer with a processed and colored vegetable product faced a color challenge that required more than ordering a hue. Our customer needed a color blend solution that would enhance their product without infringing on the competitor’s patented color. Jim, Kalsec®’s sales rep, sent the request to our lab, whose team of experts put together a color blend of various pigments in just a matter of days that seemed to work perfectly. Within a few days of production, however, our customer called about foaming problems and a concern that color was being lost. Rick, Kalsec®’s trouble-shooting technician experienced in food science and manufacturing, scheduled a plant visit to investigate the situation. A survey of the machinery and process revealed the answers our customer needed. A minor alteration to the equipment solved the problem without altering food ingredients or manufacturing procedures. Kalsec® has a team ready to work on your next color product challenge.
