Food Processing

PRIDE Food Processing trainees process Ground Meat and Poultry products for retail and institutional accounts. PRIDE Food Processing recently completed construction of a 9,000 sq. ft. freezer with a 1,000 sq. ft. blast cell, capable of -30 degrees F. The blast cell freezes most items overnight and cuts production turn-around time in half. A new process was implemented that reduced the possibility of product pathogen contamination. The retrofit of current equipment saved thousands of dollars in new equipment costs. 

The facility is United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and HACCP certified with an onsite USDA daily inspection. PRIDE’s inmate workers receive certified training from the Institute of Food and Agriculture Sciences (IFAS), University of Florida and the Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS).  Training is conducted in over 20 programs including Patty Machine Operations, Meat Grinding Operations, Food Developer and Tester, Batch Master, Quality Assurance Tester and Equipment Cleaner.
