Confectionery

We understand that confectionery manufacturers face many challenges, from maximizing output and enhancing production processes, to minimizing the risk of brand-damaging product recalls and complying with strict regulations and industry standards.

Investing in one of our x-ray systems can also help food manufacturers to achieve compliance with Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP)-based Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI)-recognised standards, such as:

  • The British Retail Consortium’s (BRC) Global Standard for Food Safety
  • International Food Standard (IFS)
  • Safe Quality Food (SQF) 2000 Code
  • The Foundation for Food Safety Certification (FSSC) 22000

By allowing manufacturers to ‘see’ inside packages, x-ray inspection systems can simultaneously perform the following quality checks:

Furthermore, metal packaging has no effect on the sensitivity of contamination detection and solutions are available to inspect products in a wide range of packaging types, such as:
