Bremner Food Group’s South Beloit facility is owned by Ralcorp Holdings, Inc., which purchased the facility in 2005. The facility was acquired for additional cookie capacity for wire-cut cookies, and had been idle at the time. Bremner Food Group started up the facility as a greenfield operation with a team-based culture. This team-based culture continues to represent the identity of the South Beloit plant today. Product offerings include a variety of wire-cut cookies.
As a part of Ralcorp Holdings, Inc.’s Bremner Food Group, the South Beloit manufacturing facility has benefited from participation in energy reduction programs from the plant, division, and corporate levels. Key to this coordinated reduction initiative has been the ability to share in new ideas across multiple facilities and businesses. This effort has resulted in successfully implementing projects that have replaced existing lights with energy efficient lighting, motion-sensor lighting controls in non-manufacturing areas, and improved energy efficiency of oven burners. In addition, the plant has been able to upgrade equipment on various plant utility systems, which has further improved its energy efficiency.
The employees of Bremner Food Group’s South Beloit facility are proud to be one of the plants earning the 2010 ENERGY STAR certification, which is the first year that commercial bakeries have been eligible to earn the certification.
