Learn how Mito, the only In-line 3D X-ray Food Inspection System for Bread and Baked Products, meets the High-quality Standards of the Bakery Industry.
In recent years, many factors have influenced the significant increase in consumption of baked goods, such as affordable prices, vast product choices, and convenience of consumption – all of which align with modern consumer lifestyles. In addition to choosing products they already know, the European Food Information Council (EUFIC) points out that consumers also make their choices based on food safety and quality.
In response to these new market demands, many bakery manufacturers have adapted their products and launched helathier alternatives to continue offering great-tasting and attractive-looking foods, promoting their brands, and building consumer loyalty. So, to reduce possible foreign object claims, limit waste through dynamic production control, and have satisfied customers, bakery manufacturers rely on Mito, BIOMETiC’s effective solution for unique 3D in-line X-ray inspection of baked products.
Obtaining a product with the correct ratio of dough to air, a balanced distribution of ingredients, and correct packaging is just one of the challenges that food manufacturers face every day. It may be a croissant with missing or poorly distributed variegation or gluten-free bread with an unbalanced honeycomb structure.
The need to meet modern consumers’ expectations for food quality is high. It doesn’t take long to find yourself having to deal with a wave of unsatisfied customer complaints, losing consumers who were loyal to your brand until recently, and suffering losses due to ineffective production management.
There are several ways a foreign body can end up in a baked good. Some of the most common include metal, plastic, glass, stone, nut, or wood fragments. In fact, in food production, the use of raw materials, maintenance procedures, process failures, and human error are often the cause of introducing physical contaminants into products.
As a result, the bakery industry is among the most susceptible to consumer complaints leading to financial losses due to product recalls, brand image damage, and cessation of purchase of brand products by mass retailers and consumers.
By integrating into your production line BIOMETiC’s Mito, the first and only X-ray inspection system with three-dimensional scanning technology and artificial intelligence, you are able to both identify foreign bodies in your products and determine their internal and external food quality. Mito performs so customizable internal and external inspections through non-destructive analysis.
Compared to a conventional 2D X-ray inspection device, Mito’s 3D X-ray scanning technology provides more accurate and stringent in-line food safety and quality controls with fewer errors and waste. Mito helps manufacturers in the baking industry by detecting, e.g., products with a damaged surface, oversized air pockets, and foreign bodies.
Thanks to real-time 3D scanning technology, Mito allows you to not only guarantee your customers safe, foreign body-free baked goods but also high-quality food products:
