While much of the world's food supply is safe, high profile safety scares and product recalls highlight the potential danger of foodborne threats. According to the World Health Organisation's (WHO) estimation from 2015, 600 million people, or almost 1 in 10 of the world’s population fall ill after consuming contaminated food every.
As demand for food safety escalates, holding a recognized food safety certification has become increasingly important in helping manufacturers provide reassurance that products coming off their production lines are as safe as possible for consumers. The inclusion of product inspection equipment into a company-wide product inspection program can play a critical role in helping manufacturers adhere to the rigors of industry standards.
