An ounce of information

We all expect the food we eat to be safe, hygienic, and free from bacteria. Foodborne illnesses cost $17.6 billion a year in the US alone, so when a bad seed gets in
amongst the rest, it can really shake your confidence.
The global prevalence of peanut allergies has increased awareness of food safety as a whole, and snack producers are being more cautious than ever.
One manufacturer in the state of Georgia learnt this the hard way in 2009 when salmonella was found in a large batch of its peanut butter. It is the kind of experience that lives long in the memory of snack-makers.
As with any other food manufacturing process, strict food safety guidelines apply to the peanut trade, and these have to be taken into account at every stage of production,
shipping, and distribution.
At Agrocrops we use X-ray sorting to detect hidden internal mould and decay, detox sorting using biometric scanners, and technology that guarantees 0% foreign material in
our products. That way we can protect our customers and consumers from food safety risks.
