Mechanical Services Firm Adds Food Processing Blog

Food for Thought, a blog focused on process engineering for the food processing and distribution industries, debuted on the website of Jacksonville, Fla.-based Stellar. The mechanical services firm will use the blog on to share knowledge and insights about design, engineering, construction and mechanical services.

The company will call on its in-house process engineering, design-build, refrigeration, thermal and automation experts to contribute to its blog. Since its beginning in 1985, Stellar has focused on the food industry, serving companies such as Nestlé, Kraft, Starbucks, Heinz, Food Lion, Burris Logistics, United States Cold Storage, and Sysco Foods.

On Food for Thought, Stellar’s experts will cover topics such as food safety, energy efficiency, processing trends, design-build best practices, advances in refrigeration, new technologies, materials and techniques. Each month, the blog will include four posts focusing on a specific area of the company’s expertise. In April, Stellar’s experts focused on refrigeration control systems. In May, they will concentrate on process engineering.
