Unlocking Bowling Green Plant Untapped Capacity

Have you ever bought green beans or a salad kit at Costco? They were likely produced by Curation Foods, an innovative natural foods company.

The Tauber team identified and implemented ways to increase capacity and streamline operations at the Bowling Green, Ohio plant. By measuring overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) and applying the lean methodology, the team improved productivity and reduced costs, ensuring a steady supply of greens to customers like you!
