Green Bay -
Hallways in Schreiber Foods' new $85 million headquarters may still need a few finishing touches before the first group of employees move in Monday.
"It's pretty stark, and white, right now," said Bob Nielsen, Schreiber Foods Enterprise Project Manager, during a tour of the new building.
Schreiber employees showed off their new space Friday. The new building gives the growing company a number of new opportunities.
"There's several types of facilities that we have in here that we don't currently have in our six buildings," Nielsen said.
One of those, a sensory area that allows the company to open its doors to the public for the first time.
The new space allows Schreiber Foods employees to test food in a better way. Panelists will be able to try the food in a controlled setting, which employees said makes for a better product.
"We can use that information to create the best products that have the widest appeal to consumers," Nielsen said.
The building also features several types of model kitchens. Some are designed for consumers, others for commercial users.
"We want to simulate it as much as possible on how they would be using our products," said Eric Scherwinski, Schreiber Foods Corporate Chef.
And, the building features five testing labs, giving the company much more space to test nutritional information and texture.
"New capabilities and larger existing capabilities in this building for us," said Nielsen.
Employees will begin working into the new building Monday, June 23. Employees will move into the building every two weeks until all 710 Schreiber Foods employees are working under one roof by August 12.
