Polar Tank, the tank-trailer manufacturing business of Polar Corp., has received a supplier appreciation award from ConAgra Mills for its role in the company’s new production and distribution process designed to ensure the safety and integrity of ready-to-eat flour. The award was presented at a recent ceremony in Omaha, Neb.
Polar Tank worked with ConAgra Mills to custom-design a pneumatic bulk tank trailer for its SafeGuard Treatment & Delivery System, a quality-assurance program designed to decrease the microbiological risks associated with raw flour. The trailer has features that help maximize payload capacity, help reduce potential microbiological hotspots and make it easier to wash and sanitize the vehicle to the program’s strict standards.
“We engineered every aspect of these pneumatic bulk tank trailers to optimize food safety,” says Ted Fick, president and chief executive officer of Polar Corp. “It’s gratifying that ConAgra Mills would recognize Polar’s contribution to the success of the SafeGuard system.”
