Welcome to JLA!
Have you ever had a manufacturing site stop operations because of sub-standard raw materials? Before we began JLA several years ago, I spent almost 25 years doing consumer research, developing food products and manufacturing foods and beverages. During those years, I made several discoveries.
4. There’s no substitute for a robust manufacturing process. We often focus on the equipment aspect of our operation, but most of the operations I have either seen or have managed did not use their full capabilities.. This is largely due to under-developing those who run the operations. The key to robustness is the capability of the people who operate, maintain and improve your systems. Motivated, equipped, and empowered people are a necessity to maintain profitability and customer satisfaction.
5. “By working together, it can be done.” Virtually anything can be accomplished in the food and beverage business with creative, motivated, energetic people.
These five observations and JLA’s Principles and Values are the essential elements of GIRBIS ®… “Getting It Right Before It Ships.”® JLA can help you bring predictability and profitability to your food and beverage business. We have developed a team with incredible skills and knowledge in product development, sensory measuring systems, process capability analysis and improvement, and raw material specification preparation. Most importantly, we can help you get your raw materials correct before they ship.
We think our client list is impressive, but our clients think that what we’ve helped them accomplish is more impressive. Contact us for a conversation about your needs.
