We’ve Got the Beet

A look at nutrient rich products for a healthier life from Glen Copack client, Dr. Joel Fuhrman

The celebrity doctor fad is something we’ve all seen before. From Dr. Oz to Dr. Phil, to doctors who claim to know which ancient root will lead to long-lasting health. Many scoff at such assertions while some might hop online and purchase book after book about the “it” diet of the day.

Some of us buy excessive amounts of fruits and vegetables in hopes of adopting a vegan diet yet others may opt for a hefty bag of potato chips. We aren’t doctors or dieticians here at Glen Copack but we do know about quality ingredients and sophisticated food production. That’s why we are always happy to work with legendary nutritional scientist and New York Times bestselling author, Dr. Joel Fuhrman whose products and philosophy are changing the way people understand food and its effect on our bodies and minds.

Not many of us can claim that we “love nutritional science” but Dr. Fuhrman can. As he shares in his popular TED talk, he has seen firsthand how food can be used as medicine to enhance our lives.

He watched his father drastically change his diet to a more nutrient rich philosophy to cope with health issues. It worked.

The term “Nutritarianism” can be credited to Dr. Fuhrman and describes a diet that is rich with nutrients and aimed at preventing diseases and extending the lifespan. Since 2015, Glen Copack has been working with Dr. Fuhrman producing a number of his revolutionary products.

The dressings we produce are organic, vegan, gluten free, and do not include sugar or oil. That may sound like a whole lot of nothing but these products are delicious and guilt free. The list below is all of the products Glen Copack produces for Dr. Fuhrman:

  • Ketchup
  • Almond Balsamic-Vinaigrette Dressing
  • Blueberry-Pomegranate Dressing
  • Creamy Tomato Soup
  • Mushroom Alfredo Sauce
  • Nutty-naise
  • Orange Cashew Dressing
  • Re-packaging Pine nuts
  • Sesame Ginger Dressing
  • Tex-Mex Salsa
  • Thai Curry Sauce
  • Tuscan Herb Dressing
  • Walnut Vinaigrette Dressing

Glen Copack Opens New Kitchen With Help From Jerlando’s

Glen Copack’s two-year effort to create a food co-packing business that meets the Food Safety Modernization Act regulations while providing employment for people with and without disabilities has reached a major completion milestone.

There is a thrill that comes with crossing the finish line after a long race.

Glen Copack’s two-year effort to create a food co-packing business that meets the Food Safety Modernization Act regulations while providing employment for people with and without disabilities has reached a major completion milestone.

We have crossed that finish line. The 6000 square-foot renovation to build a facility with multiple food production spaces was fully realized on August 24 with the first 100 gallon production run of a Jerlando’s Ristorante and Pizza Co.’s pizza sauce.

Our Glen Copack staff was excited to work with Jerlando‘s (located near Glen Copack in Watkins Glen, NY) as the inaugural production in our wet kitchen.

The Jerlando’s family was equally excited with multiple members of the family attending and assisting with the production.

The new Glen Copack production space has been designed to allow for multiple simultaneous productions of both wet and dry products with enough space to maintain preventive controls for allergen management and cross contamination prevention.

With all of our resources available and fully operational we are looking forward to growing Glen Copack as the area’s quality food production facility for food entrepreneurs.
