Equipment durability is an important consideration in food production, and within the harsh environments of many food processing operations, having sharp and durable blades results in better productivity and profitability.
In response to growing concerns over bacterial contamination, mechanically tenderized meat products must now be labeled as such and must include proper cooking instructions.
The number one poultry producer in the U.S. intends to eliminate the use of human antibiotics in chicken flocks by September of next year.
As a maker of cooking sauces, pickles, dips, and soft drinks, Greencore Foods has become a significant player in the food processing industry. However, the company’s effluent from food manufacturing contains an array of inorganic salts and organic components which enter the waste stream in part from the intense wash-down of processing tanks and lines during clean-inplace (CIP) procedures for product changeover. This article explains how the company overcame the challenges of managing its waste water treatment at its Selby, U.K. plant.
The fish, poultry, and meat industries present a series of challenges when it comes to detecting foreign material. It can even be said, based on current knowledge, that it is one of the highest risk food groups, in terms of foreign material inclusions. It is also one of the most demanding in terms of the operational environment. This white paper explains how contaminant detection technology, such as metal detection and x-ray inspection, help meat processors prevent contaminated food products from reaching consumers.
A large, international food producer uses X-ray inspection systems to increase value creation in production. In addition to its high quality demands, this international food group has committed itself to the fight against food wastage. Following the principle, "What men eat must be pure," the company wants to ensure perfect product quality so that complete batches of food that may contain contaminations no longer have to be returned and destroyed, in turn reducing food waste. Such product recalls are expensive and — what is much more important — damaging to a company's image. In addition to comprehensive inspection procedures in every production stage, the measures also include the installation of product inspection systems in the packing lines prior to dispatch.
Production in the food and beverage industries has become increasingly automated due to larger production volumes, increasing demands on quality, and higher costs. However, even when automated production systems are used, contamination of end products cannot be completely ruled out. Foreign object detection systems, such as metal detectors or x-ray inspection systems, ensure that contaminated products can be recognized and separated so that they never leave the production facility.
Customers and federal regulators expect more and more from food suppliers in today’s increasingly competitive and federally-monitored marketplace. New tools and technologies offer effective ways to meet those needs with easy implementation, reasonable costs, and immediate benefits. In this case study, sweets and spices purveyor Kalustyan reports on how product solutions are fueling growth.
