organic veggie food GmbH, based in Bad Endorf in Upper Bavaria, is using Ishida X-ray inspection, Ishida checkweighers and Ishida AirScan leak detection systems to ensure that its range of SOTO specialities – delicious ready-to-eat vegetarian and vegan organic products – reach their customers in premium condition. A pioneer in the organic food industry, the company prides itself not only on its rigorously organic production, but also on the flawless quality of its products.
“Consumer protection is a top priority and I prefer to have no complaints whatsoever,” explains organic veggie food’s managing director Maria Schramm. “Product safety in particular is an area where it makes sense to automate.”
As part of the expansion of its production, organic veggie food GmbH have built a new facility and invested in fully automated quality control systems for two of its packing lines. When organic veggie food replaced its existing metal detectors with Ishida IX-GN X-ray inspection systems, they have found the ability to detect more than metallic foreign bodies an important benefit.
