X-RAY INSPECTION WHITE PAPERS & ARTICLES
Packaged Food Manufacturers Guide To Reducing Total Delivered Cost
Traditionally, manufacturers have considered Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) in their procurement analysis when purchasing equipment. However, a stronger financial calculation is to quantify how new technology such as product inspection equipment can contribute to reducing the Total Delivered Cost (TDC) of packaged food. This eGuide uses the example of a US-based snack food manufacturer to illustrate how technological advancements in product inspection equipment – notably metal detection and x-ray inspection - can reduce the TDC.
Plant-Based Foods: Meeting The Challenges Of Innovation And Food Safety
