Some people in the community know that we are located in the old Pepsi bottling plant in Provo, UT. Pepsi already had a filling room (clean room) where the syrup was mixed with all the special ingredients and then found it’s way into bottles that were shipped worldwide. However, that was over 40 years ago. So Propeller, Inc recently met with the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food (UDAF) to make sure we were up-to-date with all the modern food handling standards and procedures.
The meeting went well and we received the go-ahead to start processing low-risk food items. Low-risk food items are things such as protein powders, supplements, cereals, rice, and some pastries. We currently do not have large refrigeration capabilities.
