Harlan is an entrepreneurially minded, family run company. We operate under a clear guiding vision and have developed long-term strategies which we invest our focus and efforts into daily.
We do not cut corners to meet the short term expectations of outside investors, nor do we ignore the need to consistently reinvest in the systems, tools, training and infrastructure required to benefit our customers and our Food Professionals. Harlan recruits top level talent from across the industry as well as cultivating emerging leaders from within the organization.
We understand the need to balance the acquisition of external experience and best practices with internal institutional knowledge and know-how which offers our customers distinct advantages in service, product innovation and delivery.
We are committed to responsible sourcing in our supply chain by working with farmers and suppliers who deliver products that are free from contaminants.
We actively research and apply sustainability best practices throughout our supply chain as well as our own manufacturing processes. We are constantly seeking out new methods to manufacture product which reduce our waste and energy signatures.
Harlan works to partner with leading equipment and technology providers, farmers and material suppliers who share our commitment to operational excellence, sustainability and where possible, regenerative systems and methodologies.
Automation is an important component to keeping production costs low and quality high. Harlan production facilities employ a variety of automated systems. However, we understand that automation alone isn't enough.
Harlan understands that state-of-the-art also means applying advanced thinking in product development, management, innovation, team collaboration, continuous improvement, systems intelligence and training.
Harlan views state-of-the-art as a holistic system designed to improve new product design, customer satisfaction, market place intelligence, safety, manufacturing and quality, as well as supply chain management.
To us, state-of-the-art is much more than a phrase applied to new equipment.
