New virtual trials at Reading Bakery Systems One of the world’s leading manu- facturers of baked snack produc- tion systems, Reading Bakery Systems (RBS) announces the expansion of their Science & Innovation Center’s product development and equipment testing capabilities by offering new Vir- tual Trials and hiring additional food technologists. Travis Getz, Vice President of Opera- tions for RBS said, “While businesses are still being impacted by pandemic related restrictions, consumer demand for new and healthier snack foods has accelerated. In so, we needed an ef- ficient and effective way to serve our customer’s everchanging product innovation and development efforts with the expertise they expect from RBS.” RBS Virtual Trials provide remote access to the Science & Innovation Center’s capabilities including prod- uct development, equipment testing and demonstration, and production of samples. Expanding our staff of ex- perienced food technologists will help guide these Virtual Trials for custom- ers and provide invaluable onsite ex- pertise. “Full access, multimedia content is shared in realtime, just as it would be if the customer were with us onsite, regardless of their physical location around the globe. There are multiple benefits of the virtual offerings, includ- ing no travel costs, and reduced coor- dination and time commitments”, Getz continued. The RBS Virtual Trials result in a more efficient product trial, by simplifying communications, operations, and ap- proval of the products and process. During the trial, participants com- municate with the RBS team by video conference, view the production floor from wide angle cameras, capture dis- crete video and still images, receive reports capturing process settings, and can have product samples shipped for analysis. RBS is actively recruiting food tech- nologists and any interested, expe- rienced professionals are invited to apply. The RBS Science & Innovation Center is currently open and available for in-person product testing as well. RBS complies with all state and lo- cal pandemic protocols for personnel safety.
