Fruit Gourmet supplies a wide variety of fruits to consumers including prunes, apricots, figs, grapes, mangoes, strawberries, raspberries, apples, blueberries, bananas and cranberries.
Their products are sold both as cooking ingredients and as healthy snacks, packed in bags as well in bulk.
The company uses x-rays for the inspection of bulk streams of the fruit pieces.
Because of careful supplier selection and long processing experience, products such as Fruit Gourmet’s shredded apricot rarely contain contaminants. However, the highly sensitive x-ray inspection system can be set to even higher levels of sensitivity for the contaminants that have been known to occur in such agricultural products, such as minute particles of glass or stone.
The company’s slogan has the product itself saying “I am not the fruit of hazard”, meaning that its level of quality did not just happen by chance but is the result of many years of experience combined with excellent raw materials.
CEO Emeric Cadalen sees the security offered by their new x-ray inspection system as just one more extension of this approach, in which nothing is left to chance.
We can’t wait to see how companies will continue to evolve, using the latest in x-ray technology to add value for consumers!
