Ensure Safety and Quality in Your Fruit and Vegetable Business with Mekitec

Welcome to the exciting and lucrative world of fruits and vegetables! This industry generates billions of dollars in profits each year by offering a wide range of fresh, canned, frozen, and dried products. However, with the complexities of the supply chain and handling processes, these goods can be at risk of contamination, putting both producers and consumers in danger.

As a producer in this competitive market, you understand the importance of providing high-quality, safe products to your customers. Contamination from foreign materials such as stones and metal debris can occur at any point during the supply chain and handling processes, endangering consumers and costing you millions of dollars in recalls and brand damage. But don’t worry, Mekitec is here to help!


Fruits and vegetables, no matter how fresh, can still be at risk of contamination from foreign objects. Stones can find their way into the product during harvesting and processing, and the very tools used to pick the goods could also cause contamination, or even end up in the polybag containing the products. Machines that slice the product could also leave behind metal debris that can be harmful to consumers and costly to producers.

The Grocery Manufacturers Association, (GMA), conducted a study among manufacturers that discovered that the estimated financial value of a product recall was around $9 million for about half of the producers surveyed. The study also noted that 58% of the respondents admitted to experiencing a product recall in the previous five years since the survey.

Product recalls are very serious threats to producers, and can easily ruin customers’ loyalty for the brand. Reputation is everything when it comes to homogenous goods like fruits and vegetables, so producers need to step up their food quality inspection. Detecting these foreign materials in fruits and vegetables efficiently can be tedious and costly, unless you use Mekitec’s x-ray inspection systems for food. Our system is safe, fast, and reliable to use for all types of produce.
