With the 2019 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) running an inaugural two-day workshop on safety issues facing the global meat and poultry processing industries, metal detection specialist Fortress Technology (Booth B-8427) will reveal its latest pathogen cross contamination deterrent – the Meat Pump Pipeline. Its IPPE launch coincides with the new BRC Global Food Safety Standard Issue 8 audits commencing in February.
Fortress Technology has unveiled an updated version of its automatic test technology – Halo – providing factories with a traceable and auditable way to periodically test the performance of their food metal detectors.
The impact of food and drink allergies in the UK is rising, and the risks associated with factory-level ingredient cross-contamination and cross contact are real. European MD of Fortress Technology Phil Brown discusses how smart design in metal detection can help food and drink businesses to minimise hygiene challenges at this critical point in the line.
