to the scale eliminating the need for a separate device
in the department.
Reduce Shrink. The scale logs the order and transactional
data for future analysis helping with more accurate
production planning and inventory control.
Reduce Errors. As the operator fulfills a line item, the
PLU is automatically populated on the scale, reducing
keystrokes and ensuring accuracy.
Increase Revenue. Because orders can be fulfilled more
quickly, lines at the fresh counter are reduced increasing
customer satisfaction and allowing more capacity for
additional orders.
Palletizing robots
In other projects on the technology front, St. Louis-based
Companion Baking's new palletizing robot - affectionately
called Bruce Banner (aka The Incredible Hulk) by
the staff - enables this innovative St. Louis bakery the
ability to achieve a higher level of production efficiency
and equipment sophistication.
Companion's latest projects have allowed them to carve
out a unique niche as a mid-sized bread distributor with
vast customization capabilities. Through semi-automation
and tools such as Redzone, the baking company is able to
produce around 150 different SKUs, five days a week, in
an organized and efficient manner - all in a floor space
of 42,000 square feet.
Each time dough is made, cut, or put in an oven,
Redzone tracks timing and provides ways for the team
to improve. In addition, it has served as a communication
tool for employee onboarding and professional
development. Since this realization, Companion has
reduced its annual waste by over one million pounds
in just two and a half years and is making strides to

go to zero waste-to-landfill by 2025.
Further, shipping to 400-plus restaurants, grocery
stores, and partners is no small feat. The green
Companion robot assists with palletizing and heavy
lifting, working around the clock so that labor can be
dispersed to other areas of the bakery floor.
