Following a large-scale expansion in 2014, CanFoods Limited upgraded all of its cereal production equipment to machinery manufactured by Smythe Bloom. Smythe Bloom is a highly regarded international manufacturer of equipment for the biscuit, bread, snack, confectionary and breakfast cereal sectors.
CanFoods uses Smythe Bloom equipment assembled in Winnipeg for a process called “rotary steam cooking,” a traditional method that plays a central role in turning the grains received from PrairiePriority into many of the producer’s most popular cereal lines.
Smythe Bloom equipment uses parts manufactured by specialty providers from North America, Europe and Asia. With partners scattered around the globe waiting for payments, Smythe Bloom needed to find a way to keep their cost of funding in check while ensuring smooth payment to partners everywhere from Boston to Barcelona to Beijing – all while ensuring information was shared accurately and efficiently with other offices worldwide.
