Douglas Machines Corp. is a leading manufacturer of washing and sanitizing equipment used in the candy and confectionery industry. Our equipment complies with regulatory food safety standards such as FSMA, HACCP and GMP (Good Manufacturing Processes) to ensure that your baked products are produced without physical, allergenic, chemical and microbiological hazards.
For 40 years, Douglas Machines has worked alongside Confectionery and Candy companies involved in the manufacturing, production, importation/wholesaling of products that include chocolate, chewing gum, hard candies, breakfast bars, candied fruits, fudge, cotton candy, halvah, marshmallows, chocolate candy bars, boxed chocolates, chocolate-covered nuts, and toffee.
These companies trust Douglas with their container washing needs because maximum productivity is reached, along with decreased energy use, reduced chemical and water costs, increased shelf life for equipment, tools and utensils, and reduced manpower for regular washing.
Amid increasing health concerns, narrow margins and heightened competition, the Candy and Confectionery industries continue to see rising raw material prices and a labor shortage. Smaller companies make up a massive portion of the industry and are impacted heavily. Consumers may not be willing to pay higher prices, so companies must consider other cost saving methods to combat these challenges. Healthy, eco-friendly products that invest in sustainability are becoming more important to consumers and shareholders. It becomes more difficult to find solutions that can make a different to the bottom line, while continuing to manufacture great product.
Reviewing options, labor efficiency and effectiveness is a viable consideration. The savings achieved by purchasing an automated system versus manual washing results in minimized sanitation issues, elevated food safety standards, reduced labor and energy costs, plus a consistent level of cleanliness. Douglas machines are stainless steel and hygienically designed to meet the demands of today’s manufacturing and processing environment.
