Source: Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection

The meat and poultry industry has some of the harshest operating conditions and most demanding processes in food manufacturing and processing. Manufacturers are under increasing consumer and legislative pressure to ensure product quality and safety. As a result, many are using product inspection tools to provide confidence that the products coming off the production line are as safe for consumers as they can possibly be.

With a range of product inspection equipment, such as checkweighers, metal detectors, x-ray, and vision inspection systems being commonly used in the meat and poultry industry, this white paper will explore how this equipment should be designed following international sanitary design standards in order to prevent the growth and spread of biological contamination in meat and poultry plants.
