Sanitation probably tops the list, but safety, speed, reliability, ease of use, and resource efficiency are also among the watchwords for snack and bakery manufacturers when it comes to replacing or upgrading their plant’s belts and conveyors equipment.
The latest metal detection and X-ray inspection equipment can detect small foreign objects, reduce false rejects and handle a wide range of products, which is good news for bakery/snack producers who are striving to improve their quality control programs.
Sustainability means different things to different people. For some, it’s all about minimizing emissions or reducing the carbon footprint. For others, it’s strengthening local economies and communities.
I’ve long felt that the food industry presents the best of all worlds. Tradition holds considerable strength in food. A handful of cornerstone companies continue to drive the lion’s share of revenue across snack and bakery.
