Increase your expertise in foreign object detection

Preventive measures and foreign object management have become increasingly important in the food industry. One reason for this can be found in the changing requirements of food standards. Another reason is the public's increased sensitivity to contaminated and defective products. In the age of the media, product recalls can mean much more than economic losses: in the worst case, they damage the image of the entire company.
