It’s no secret that processed foods encounter more steps in the manufacturing process than other products. This poses an even greater risk for foreign material contamination to penetrate your product. Machinery can break, rub or chip, leaving your product susceptible to contamination. Even worse, inline inspection machines are often not calibrated to catch machinery parts made of metal, plastic and rubber. With so many critical control points in the manufacturing process, FlexXray can find those contaminants by tying all of your critical control points together.

When you partner with FlexXray, you know you’re trusting the best in the industry. The leading processed food manufacturers rely on FlexXray because they know our quality and speed are unmatched. We have become an integral part of HACCP plans for over 1100 customers. Our detailed reporting process shows you our findings and gives you key information for finding what went wrong. Paired with state-of-the-art processes, FlexXray’s third-party inspection services are the optimal way for your product to be free of foreign material contamination.
