TVS now packages four kinds of nuts for the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency. TVS (Transylvania Vocational Services), a social enterprise contract manufacturer in Brevard, has added more than a dozen new items to its contract packaging portfolio over the past few months. This increase in business has resulted in the creation of new jobs and additional shifts at the facility. TVS was awarded a federal contract from the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) to supply four varieties of nuts in addition to the variety of bakery mixes it already provides. The DLA is the Department of Defense’s largest logistics combat support agency, providing worldwide logistics support in both peacetime and wartime to the military services as well as several civilian agencies and foreign countries. TVS’ Mountain Maid® brand was designated the mandatory source of supply for English Walnut Halves and Pieces, Slivered Blanched Almonds, Sliced Blanched Almonds, and Sliced Natural Almonds, all of which are grown and harvested in the United States. TVS packages the nuts in one-pound flexible pouches via a semi-automated packaging line. To read a press release with more details click here
