The Inspection Needs of the Snacks Industry

Protect Brand Reputation and Eliminate Waste

Snacks are a fast-growing sector that generates a significant turnover. The consumption of products to break the hunger pause between main meals has become almost a must for consumers, even among the youngest. Some prefer sweet snacks such as cookies and snacks, those who prefer salty snacks such as crackers and chips, others who follow the trends and opt for organic snacks such as vegetable chips and organic bars. The variety of products is wide and the competition fierce. 

Hence the need for snacks producers to guarantee safe and high-quality products that often do not require preparation or cooking. Companies in this sector are increasingly investing in in-line inspection systems to meet market demands, avoid possible complaints and product batch recalls. Biometic’s solution to keeping up with consumers’ demands for food safety and quality is Mito, the 3D X-ray inspection solution for the food industry.

Food Quality Requirements for the Snacks Industry

Quality Characteristics of Snacks

Ensuring properly sealed packages and products, the presence of vacuum, and proper fill level are just a few of the challenges in the snacks manufacturer industry. It could be a bag of chips with a lack of vacuum that detracts from the crispness of the final product, snacks broken in half due to improper packaging, or cookies where the chocolate cream filling is missing.

The need to meet consumers’ taste and food quality expectations is very strong in the snacks industry. It doesn’t take much to get overwhelmed by customer complaints, lose brand-loyal consumers, and suffer losses due to ineffective production management.

Food Safety Requirements for the Snacks Industry

Foreign Bodies in Snacks

Snack companies must turn to a variety of suppliers to produce tasty and safe snacks. Whether it’s dried fruit to make nutritious organic bars or chocolate-based preparations to create soft, mouthwatering snacks – the various ingredients can be contaminated with different types of foreign bodies, such as stones, metal fragments, or nutshells

Snacks are products consumed by adults and children, often expensive and needing increased safety controls to ensure risk-free consumption. Therefore, it is even more important to ensure the absence of contaminants to avoid product recalls, a negative impact on brand image, damage to customer purchases, and, above all, risks to consumer health.
