A Two-Million Dollar Deal
Puts Mekitec on Track for Record-High Growth for The Year
The world’s leading snack manufacturer adopts the trend of primary packaging inspection and continues to secure the safety and quality of its products with Mekitec’s X-ray inspection systems.
Mekitec Group’s Latin America branch received a purchase order from one of the world’s largest snack manufacturers. With a value of over 2 million dollars, the deal is one of the largest single purchase orders in the company’s history and represents a continuation of Mekitec’s growth story in the Latin American region and the snack industry.
“A single deal of this size is significant for our company on a global scale, boosting us to our highest growth year ever. This decision by a major food company is part of a bigger industry trend toward using primary packaging X-ray inspection. The shift is taking place all over the world and has been happening for quite some time”, says Juho Ojuva, the Vice President of Commercial Operations at Mekitec.
The snack manufacturer installs Mekitec inspection systems on individual packaging lines, proving that leading food manufacturers are implementing primary packaging inspection strategies to strengthen their product safety, quality, and traceability efforts while minimizing food waste by using data collected with the X-ray system.
The inspection systems’ compact size, high value, and adaptability to the customer’s needs made it easy for the snack manufacturer to turn to Mekitec but the company’s renowned service capabilities and strong presence through a local partner were two of the main reasons why the snack manufacturer chose Mekitec to achieve their inspection requirements.
“Our customers value quick response times and local support, which is why we collaborate with experienced partners all around the world. Our goal is to provide world-class food safety and quality solutions to our customers and delivering the X-ray systems is only the beginning; we work with the customer throughout the lifecycle to ensure that the customer’s X-ray inspection systems perform optimally and add value through our cutting-edge software and service solutions”, Andrés Sanchez Badia, the Regional Director of Mekitec Latin America, summarizes the cooperation.
