HACCP -based principles are widely regarded throughout the EU and in most developed countries as crucial to the management of food safety and in turn, consumer protection. These principles prescribe a certain number of requirements that must be met throughout the cycle of production, processing and distribution in order to permit, via hazard analysis, identification of critical points that need to be kept under control in order to guarantee food safety.


DETECTAMET™ materials have been developed to help the food & pharmaceutical industry comply with these new global regulations to help protect consumers. The range of products available from DETECTAMET™ give manufacturers the opportunity to use cost-effective, functional, ergonomic implements that are safe for or approved for food-contact use. A key feature of the products manufactured from these materials is that fragments are detected and rejected by standard in-process metal detection and X-Ray equipment.


Why Choose Detectable Products?

Within the food and pharmaceutical industries there is an ever-present risk of contamination that, if undetected, can result in:

  • Damage to equipment.
  • Costs incurred through product recall.
  • Harm to your company's reputation.

and, in the worst case,

  • Serious injury to somebody inadvertently consuming the contaminant.
