ISHIDA X-RAY DELIVERS CERTAINTY FOR SAFETY AND QUALITY AT PORTUGUESE MANUFACTURER
The versatility of Ishida’s IX-EN-4093-S X-ray inspection system has enabled a Portuguese convenience food producer to further enhance its strict food safety and quality standards. Centralrest, Ltd, part of Irmãos Monteiro, SA, one of Portugal’s leading meat processors, specialises in the production of a wide variety of chilled and frozen meals, pastas and sauces through its Prato do Dia brand. The company originally installed the Ishida IX-EN X-ray inspection system to inspect for potential metal contaminants in products packed in aluminium trays, as these could not be detected using a traditional metal detector. However, the X-ray machine’s ability to spot a variety of other foreign bodies including glass and dense plastic, means the machine will now be used to inspect products packed in other materials as well.
