Military Appreciation Month: Honoring the U.S. Military’s Food Safety Practices


Because of the many dates marked throughout May honoring the U.S. military, including Memorial Day, Armed Forces Day, Military Spouse Appreciation Day, VE Day, and more, the month of May is designated as U.S. Military Appreciation Month. At Forpak, we support our troops by protecting food safety practices that help promote the quality of food products globally. For more than 25 years, Forpak has manufactured high-quality, innovative solutions for food production equipment. Our packaging systems are designed to protect the safety and quality of food products for the bakery, meat, and pizza industries. When it comes to the U.S. military, organizing the efficient packaging and distribution of the food supply for troops is a highly complex system. Protecting food safety in that system starts with effective, quality handling of products in the packaging process.

Forpak designs support food safety, sanitation, and an overall reduced potential of contamination in the packing process. Our products meet National Science Foundation (NSF) 3A Standard requirements for meat and poultry and Baking Industry Sanitation Standards Committee (BISSC) standards for baking. This means our customers can take advantage of our equipment’s strict hygiene and sanitation standards, including leading technology with Allen Bradley controls incorporated into all our designs.

Our equipment for stacking, laning, sorting, transferring, conveying, and other custom stages in a facility’s packaging process are used globally. Excluding Antarctica, Forpak equipment is installed in facilities on every continent, serving many types of customers and protecting food safety worldwide.

In addition to quality designs for food packaging equipment that contributes to global food safety in the distribution of many baked goods, meat products, and more, Forpak provides technical support from start to finish during the production of assemblies and through our new preventative maintenance program. Thanks to our preventative maintenance support, customers experience less down time in production, maximize materials and time, increase the lifespan of equipment parts, eliminate emergency shutdowns, and have access to a detailed record of maintenance logs and part information. Forpak’s preventative maintenance program also offers a 10% discount on parts, visits from our technicians, and emergency services.

Whether the distribution of food safely and effectively to troops means catering in the mess hall or providing field rations, the most important part of preservation of nutrition, caloric quality, freshness, and flavor is correctly and effectively packaging products. With food processing systems like Forpak’s integrated into more facilities, food safety and effective packing can be accomplished much easier.

Not only do we provide components for OEMs and other customers in the medical device, semiconductor, aerospace, financial processing, and food production industries, we also work with independent and federal defense contractors. Since 1968, MultiSource has worked to provide quality, trusted components and full assemblies that meet strict requirements for the heavily regulated defense and aerospace industries. We provide flight-critical parts with precise CNC machining capabilities, such as cockpit controls, rocketry components, flight deck video systems, cargo handling, and more. Our goal as a contract manufacturing provider is to support our military’s defense and aerospace divisions and protect troops by creating high-quality, innovative solutions for the construction of advanced planes, jets, rockets, and many other mission-critical systems.

May is Military Appreciation Month, and we want to take part in honoring our troops year-round, but especially this month. We know our military works extremely hard to protect our country and support the safety of our country’s values and people.

As a contract manufacturing company, MultiSource takes part year-round in the appreciation and support of our troops through our production of key components and assemblies for the defense and aerospace industries.

We are registered with the State Department and the International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR) for ISO 9001:2015 and 13485:2016 as well as AS9100 D. Thanks to our 40+ years of contribution to the defense and aerospace industry, we’ve worked through the significant advancements in technology and applications that developed during that time span.

From the early days of the space program and the 1960s military to today’s futuristic technology used in the U.S. defense and aerospace industries, MultiSource engineers and technicians have provided innovative, precise solutions that meet the high standards required.

Our network of design/build machine shops work to generate many prototypes. These machines can fabricate parts and assemblies, offer value added services for finishing, perform the necessary diagnostics, and always meet Just-In-Time (JIT) delivery standards. With CNC milling up to 5 simultaneous axes, turning with live tooling, and Swiss turning with up to 12 simultaneous axes, MultiSource technicians can work with a broad range of materials for extremely precise results.

We routinely work with military grade stainless steel for many components and assemblies, but we also manufacture with titanium, aluminum, high-nickel alloys, and plastics. With our production floor capabilities, MultiSource can provide many high-precision components and assemblies for the defense and aerospace industries.
