Food safety is essential

08 Aug 2017

The German company Haas is a medium-size, family-owned company that supplies meat and sausage pizza toppings to the further processing industry. The company has installed Marel’s Trim Inspection System for the checking of bone fragments in their products.

“In addition to taste, product safety is one of the most important issues for our customers,” says Achim Haas, owner of Haas. “All of the products that are processed here are visually inspected by butchers. But to ensure that we remove absolutely all foreign material from the meat, we decided to install the Trim Inspection System.”
 

Seeing what the humans cannot

Humans aren’t perfect, and even the most skilled, experienced operators can’t see everything with the human eye, including tiny bone fragments in the final product. But the Trim Inspection System’s X-ray capabilities ensure that bone fragments are identified and removed before the product is delivered to a customer.
