The health and nutrition food industry is currently experiencing a boom, with a Compound Annual Growth Rate of 6 to 7%. Reports estimate that the industry could be worth 1 trillion dollars by 2017. Customers are more than willing to pay for quality when it comes to healthy food, but they are also very conscious of brands and trends. Thus, a manufacturer’s brand image is vital in maintaining an edge over the competition, especially when it comes to the popular health food market.
THE RISKS INVOLVED
Health and nutrition food products area typically marketed as good for the body, nutritious and safe to consume. Such risks include stones that get mixed in with the raw materials during processing, and metal contaminants that could fall into the production line. Failing to ensure that the product is safe compromises the manufacturer’s reputation, which can hurt sales, along with adverse effects.
Sample Health & Nutrition Products
A product from a trusted brand makes it easier for consumers to select it from among other products. A reliable brand also makes selling new products under the popular label much easier. Product recalls caused by contaminants, however, can impact health food manufacturers, and damage their vital reputation. Many of these products are wrapped in metalized film or aluminum rending metal detection ineffective. Fortunately, Mekitec’s food safety xray systems can help manufacturers ensure the quality of their products – be they health bars, protein bars, protein powder, or meal replacement bars – and protect their brand at the same time.
