Within the medical manufacturing industry, there is perhaps nothing more important than quality control. It is, after all, an industry filled with special rules and regulations. By the time the products reach the consumer, they are expected to be free of contamination.
In order for production facilities to compete--and thrive--in this fast growing landscape, managers should automate key processes. In addition to picking and packing, manufacturing plants should adopt smarter conveyor technologies too.
If you manage a food processing or packaging facility, then you know how important cleanliness is to your brand’s reputation. While you should make every effort to ensure that all types of food are kept contamination-free throughout the entire production and distribution cycle, recent data suggests that meat and poultry should be prioritized. Why? According to a study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), foodborne illnesses caused by meat and poultry contributed to the most deaths.
Bottling, canning and processing of consumer goods is a constantly evolving market that must adapt to shifts in consumer needs. The sector has experienced growth in recent years that’s expected to continue as new processes emerge, according to numerous reports.
Speaking of the processing aspect, conveyors offer the necessary support to maintain consistent quality, integrity of packaging and work to ensure other mishaps (such as spoilage) don’t happen during the process.
Cleanliness is one of the most important topics of discussion when it comes to food. Where it’s grown or raised, how it’s processed and packaged, and the methods used to make its way onto our plates are all important aspects most take seriously.
If you run a food processing or packaging facility, it’s critical to not only abide by sanitation requirements for compliance, but also to meet increasing consumer and industry standards for safe, cleaner operations. A great place to start is at the equipment level. You need solutions that can easily be disinfected and sanitized and that are designed with cleanability in mind so food is never compromised.
