MOKENA, Ill. – Provisur Inc. hosted its “Thanks a Ton” event Nov. 15 to celebrate the delivery of the 200th CashinEdge slicer manufactured and placed into production at Denison, Iowa-based Quality Food Processors Inc.
“Since its introduction in 2012, the CashinEdge has proven to be the durable and efficient workhorse of bacon processing facilities throughout the world. Now, with 200 CashinEdge slicers in operation, often for two, eight-hour shifts per day, we can roughly calculate that Provisur and our CashinEdge machines are helping to feed our hungry planet by assisting the production of nearly 400,000 tons of safe and nutritious protein annually,” said Scott Scriven, Provisur’s vice president – Slicing.
The CashinEdge HS Retail slicer that will be delivered to Quality Food Processors was specifically designed for high-speed bacon slicing applications and can produce 60, 1-lb. drafts of bacon per minute.
As a part of the “Thanks a Ton” celebration, as well as to commemorate the 50-year success of the Cashin brand, Scriven announced that Provisur will make a donation to the Greater Chicago Food Depository (GCFD). “We respect and admire the important work of the GCFD and believe this donation to be a great way to say, ‘Thanks a Ton,’ both to our latest customer,
Quality Food Processors, and to the other 199 owners who have placed their confidence in our market-leading CashinEdge technology.” Quality Food Processors will replace two nearly 20-year old models of Cashin slicers with the newest technology manufactured by the company, according to Eric Kohler, QFP’s plant engineer. “We joke with Provisur that we have two of the first Cashin slicers made and now we will have the newest — the 200th model of this slicer that they’ve manufactured,” Kohler said. “But there’s a significant difference… We know from our careful evaluation that this high-speed, bacon-specific model will more than double the output of our two older machines, and with significantly greater yields and flexibility.”
