Handling and Storing Briess Ingredients

The proper handling and storage of Briess ingredients is critical for successful food processing and manufacturing.

Dry Ingredients

We recommend that our customers establish standard written procedures and train staff on properly receiving and storing Briess ingredients. Here are several tips to considering incorporating into written procedures for your operation:

Receiving Product

  • Designate responsibility to one person.
  • Ensure trailer and load are clean and without debris.
  • Ask driver about products shipped simultaneously.
  • Inspect each bag/pallet during unloading for tears, oil stains, foreign substances, etc. If contamination is suspected, stop unloading. If product is lost, customer should sign the Bill of Lading attesting to exceptions and notify Briess Customer Service immediately.
  • All shipments from Briess distribution centers are palletized and stretch wrapped. Full truckload shipments have a cable lock seal on the trailer. If shipment is not palletized and/or shrink wrapped, please note on Bill of Lading and advise Briess Customer Service immediately. In this case, palletize before storage.
