Buck Ice welcomes
 
Manufacturing
HOW DO WE DO IT?
We start with award winning water, which feeds our modern Turbo ice makers. The water is frozen while moving over stainless freezing plates. This makes Buck Ice long-lasting, crystal-clear, and taste-free. The ice is automatically harvested every ten to twenty minutes and moved by screw conveyor to an automatic storage bin.

The storage bin feeds a screw conveyor that carries the ice to a sizer (Buck Ice is consistently easy to use when filling glasses and cups; also works well is automatic dispensers), then to a double screen (no snow keeps Buck Ice loose and free flowing), and then to a Hamer form, fill, and package machine. The Hamer Packaging Machine makes the bag, fills it with the correct amount of ice, and closes the package, all automatically. The finished package is then carried by conveyor to a Johnsen automatic baler. The Johnsen baler collects six bags, drops them into a bale bag, and closes the bale.

Only now are human hands required. Our workers stack the bales on pallets, and stretch wrap each pallet. The full pallet of Buck Ice is now ready to go directly on the delivery truck, or on to storage to meet peak demands.

All of this happens in a 20 F room, giving us excellent snow screening, and maintains our high quality.

Buck Ice is regularly inspected by the Georgia Department of Agriculture (Georgia Food Sales Establishment license # 44385), United States Army #VC13-0047, and is a Member of the International Packaged Ice Association (Packaged Ice Quality Control Standards # 253) . As part of their inspection, samples of finished product are taken and tested. You and your family can be assured that Buck Ice is clean, wholesome, and safe to consume.

 
"NEVER TOUCHED BY HUMAN HANDS" - WHY SHOULD THAT MATTER TO ME?
Look around for yourself. Many stores still bag ice on-premise with a hand scoop, in the back room or behind the store or in front of the store. Look at the open bin icemaker; observe its appearance. Have you ever seen anyone reach into an open bin ice maker with their hands to get a piece of ice out? Have you ever seen anyone put a can, bottle, or package in an open bin icemaker to cool off?

Look at the label on the ice bag. Does it have the store name on it? Does it have any name on it?

Decide for yourself. Would you rather consume Buck Ice, factory packaged under controlled conditions, or ice bagged by a hand scoop in the back room?

Insist on Buck Ice wherever you shop!
