While the digital transformation known as Industry 4.0 began on the factory floor, not all of today’s manufacturers are ‘smart’. In fact, according to a recent study by Deloitte, just 20.7% of manufacturers surveyed rated themselves as ‘highly prepared’ for the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Yet the benefits to food and beverage producers of incorporating connected technology into their processes are well documented. Smart technology can help organizations to make informed decisions that can turn a business into a predictor rather than a reactor.
With increasing globalization of the food supply chain and the recent statement issued by the FDA outlining the steps it is looking to take to advance food safety, metal detection specialist Fortress Technology examines the different ways food factories can implement a robust screening process to ensure quality for consumers is not compromised.
In the first episode of Food Safety First, our host Ryan Ramdass discusses Food Safety Programs with Steve Gidman, the President of Fortress Technology. Find out what a Food Safety Program is, how these programs impact food safety, tips for preventing contaminants in food, and much more. Listen Now!
Today’s heightened occurrence of food allergies and intolerances are difficult to ignore. Changing lifestyles, increased protection from germs, and certain ‘healthy’ or ‘exotic’ eating trends could all be contributing to the rise in intolerances or allergies.
Metal detection systems continue to be the mainstay of preventing contaminants entering the food production chain. As more advanced equipment enters the market, Fortress Technology offers a quick checklist to help food manufacturers select an inspection system that best suits their product, application requirements and budget.
Embracing sustainability is a smart business move. Especially in food production, where the effects of waste, energy consumption and resources ripple out to consumers in mainstream society, influencing their decision making process.
Investment in four Stealth Metal Detectors from Fortress Technology has underpinned an aggressive expansion program at Arizona-headquartered Doughnut Peddler. The presence of reliable, industry-leading metal detectors has enabled the dynamic doughnut producer to elevate its lines to top food safety standards, meeting GMP requirements and winning the confidence of new retail customers.
