The proof of the pudding is in the eating


Doing the right thing

Food contamination issues are always a bit controversial. We get it. It may be that food producers prefer not to talk much about it, and that is understandable. However, these issues need to be addressed as far as possible, and the Food Radar® offers a huge step in that direction.

"With increasing use of plastics in everyday applications and the difficulty of detecting them on-line, many food companies regard plastics as one of the most important causes of foreign body complaints."

Today, we see our customer base rapidly growing as recognition and understanding of the Food Radar® grows. There are now systems installed around the globe and many manufacturers have multiple installations. We can see a growing interest as the food contamination issue makes its way up companies’ agendas.
Meet some of our customers who have embraced this new technology in order to improve their food safety.

Fratelli Polli S.p.A.

"Since 1872 Fratelli Polli S.p.A. has looked to innovation to constantly improve our offering. Every year we work to go further because we know the best is yet to come.
In the area of securing quality and foreign body detection for our pesto production we looked to the new Food Radar® technology.
It has proven to be a good system and an example of that the best is yet to come. Food Radar® was able to adapt its system to our requirement and the space constraints.
The system has a very hygienic and flexible design that made the implementation easy."

Schwartauer Werke GmbH & Co KGaA

"At Schwartauer Werke, we have followed the advances in the Food Radar® detection technology for some time. With its latest developments, we find it to be a very suitable tool in our ongoing programmes for improved quality and food safety. We have therefore implemented the system in fruit processing after testing its ability to detect pits, plastic and other foreign bodies. The system’s ability to address low-density foreign bodies impressed us."

Guerts Conservenfabriek b.v. (Andros group)

“We had been searching for a solution to detect low-density contaminants such as fruit stones and plastics for our jam filling line. Until we discovered the Food Radar® solution, this proved to be impossible. We read about the application of the Food Radar® and, after initial tests, we bought and installed the system. It has had an enormous effect as it is able to remove contamination that our magnets, metal detectors and X-Ray systems cannot identify."
