Food Safety: Key element of corporate strategy in the food industry
Nowadays, companies pursue both economic and ecological objectives. Profitability and sustainability are not contradictory, but of equal importance. In the food industry, quality is also of central importance. Food production and processing is confronted with numerous influencing factors, including fluctuating raw material prices, climate change, global population growth and rising quality standards. To meet these challenges, companies need to make food safety a core part of their strategy in the global food industry.
safety should be consistently implemented and lived throughout the entire
organisation. This can only be achieved through efficient process technology
along the production chain. Consistent foreign body management, supported by
advanced product inspection technologies and services, ensures profitability,
resource conservation and compliance.
in the areas of management, production and quality assurance, food safety plays
a crucial role.
out here, with the help of the following frequently asked questions, how a
targeted product inspection equips you for the future and how you can find
solutions for your priorities.
to maximize product and process quality?
the best hardware and software solutions along your production line from the incoming
goods through the production to the outgoing goods.
can you automatically adjust sensitivity settings to internal standards?
innovative software, sensitivity can be set to factory or audit standards at
the touch of a button. This reduces rejects and minimizes good material loss.
can you automate your compliance process?
monitoring or automatic function test module
lead to immediate detection of deviations and increas the stability of the
can you prove and document compliance?
a documentation tool that provides
evidence that the desired quality targets for the respective product are
do you compensate a strong product effect in your products?
artificial intelligence in its best form. This can achieve almost complete
compensation of the product effect, metal detection in metallic packaging and
do you have all relevant control points information at a glance?
a (Link Insight.WEB) browser-based, intelligent data management. A software as
a service that enables transparency, optimisation of production,
individualisation and documentation.
can you make Industry 4.0 a reality?
the right software and hardware for digital networking including a wide range
of interface modules and secure conformity.
can the highest product quality be combined with the highest throughput?
innovative high-tech X-ray inspection that works very quickly and reliably at
up to 1000 rpm.
to extend the lifetime of the machines and ensure the highest food safety?
annual maintenance and warranty packages. The life of your equipment is
extended with maintenance, repair and retrofitting.
can you become more successful in the competition for highly qualified
simple operating concepts in hardware and software design, e.g. Auto-Learn
function automates product-specific device settings
guides through the test routine and logs all steps
help menu supports the operator
can you automatically guide your operator through compliance processes?
an integrated process wizard tool that performs regular audit checks.
can you protect against incorrect machine settings?
the checkpoint function of the detection devices. Checkpoints are used to
recover product parameters, reconstruct individual products and track changes.
can maximum security be achieved?
a higher level security package that offers checkpoint functions. This exceeds
international standards, SQF, IFS, FSSC 22000, BRC and others.
to comply with internal data protection and operational security regulations?
the definition of different user groups, individual access authorisations and a
"Login2Go" function that saves the date on a USB stick - optionally
can the highest hygiene standards be maintained?
quick belt change and fast cleaning of the X-ray units. Simplified cleaning
through open, modular design, access and removal of the belt without tools and
suspension system for radiation protection curtains.
can you qualify your unskilled staff for X-ray machines?
an auto-learn function of the X-ray machines. The Auto-Learn function offers
simple and intuitive operation. The configuration of the different filters is
done by the machine itself and the detection sensitivity is automatically
to get quick advice and help in machine emergencies?
remote maintenance via augmented reality. The augmented reality technology,
which accesses your machine directly via an Ethernet connection, enables
technicians and engineers to respond very quickly.
safety is not just a trendy keyword, but a key element for companies in the
food industry. This article makes it clear that high quality is not only
ethically desirable, but also makes good business sense. In fact, profitability
in the long term can only be achieved through consistent quality assurance.
Companies committed to responsible food production recognise that food safety
is a priority. In this context, it is not enough to carry out controls only at
the end of the production chain. Effective assurance of food safety requires
monitoring at every single checkpoint of production.
