We own a popcorn company. The popcorn is cooked in a kettle and afterwards, dumped into a sifting bin to remove unpopped kernels. The most tedious, time-consuming process we have involves bagging our product. As we have events outside, sometimes we face issues like wind blowing the bags around, which makes it difficult to accurately dump scooped popcorn into the bag. We also have a problem accurately delivering the same amount of product each time.

We are envisioning a system where we can immediately scoop all popcorn into a series of containers with adjustable measurements to fit our various bags. The bags would be placed under or fitted around the containers with a mechanism to release the popcorn into the bags. I'm not sure this is feasible, but if somehow, we could automatically twist-tie or heat seal the bags after the popcorn drops in, even better.

This is just our idea. We're open to any sort of idea that could improve our efficiency.
