Consumer protection - Product purity. An imperative in the food industry
All the food people eat must be absolutely pure and clean. This is one of the most important principles of the food industry. One decisive criterion here is that your products leave your factory without any metal contaminations and other contaminants. This guarantees that consumers are safe from any health impairments and that your company is safe from a loss of confidence, product liability cases, and expensive product recalls.
Quality assurance - IFS compliant production. Responsibility and economic success
The INTERNATIONAL FEATURED STANDARD (IFS) defines the most important requirements for the quality management of food manufacturers. All the renowned trade chains therefore demand that their suppliers are certified according to this IFS standard. The detection and separation of metals and contaminants is a decisive criterion of IFS compliant production. Chapter 5 states that food manufacturers must take all the necessary steps to prevent contamination with metal particles or other contaminant
