I feel so fortunate to have been able to tour three amazing and beautiful places yesterday in TEDA (Tianjin Economic Development Area). My favorite place was the Instant Noodle Impression Museum. This tour was free to guest and included a tour through the viewing gallery of the Instant Noodle production. We saw how the noodles were made from start to finish. It started out with a continuous sheet of dough that was then steamed, sprayed, fried, and cooled. The noodles were then packaged, weighed, and got a bar code printed on it. I thought the most interesting part of this whole production was at the end when the packaged noodles were placed on piles one on top of another.The robotic palletiging that did this was over half a million dollars and there were five or six of them. The packages were placed so preciously. I was amazed that all this was done by equipment. This place, just like all of the other places we have toured, was extremely clean. It will be interesting to see how this company continues to grow in the future.
