Exhibitions are exciting and surprising and SIAL 2016 turned out to be a very good location to launch Detectamet’s new incentive scheme to encourage good anti-contamination management.

A user of Detectamet detectable products was exhibiting near to Detectamet’s exhibition stand and they helped to keep their customer’s products protected with detectable gloves to protect the safe supply of Pizzas.

Caseificio Tre Stelle s.r.l. is an Italian producer of high quality Buffalo Mozzarella and to demonstrate their cheese they supplied visitors with samples of Pizza made on the stand using their cheese.

Following research, we discovered that the company was already using more than 5 Detectamet detectable products which qualified them to receive the Detectamet Silver Guardian award for their commitment to food safety.

The Technical Manager Gianluca De Martino at Caseificio’s Three Star Dairy said he was delighted to see Detectamet at the show and was pleasantly surprised when he was presented with the Silver Guardian award by Jon Ireland, the new Sales Director at Detectamet.

The new award scheme is rewarding companies that demonstrate their food safety culture by protecting customers and consumers from the risk of physical contamination in their products. There are three levels of award; Silver, Gold and Platinum and they are being presented in accordance with the level of commitment made by the recipients.  Silver awards will go to food companies using more than three detectable plastic products. Gold winners will be employing seven or more products and the users of eleven or more products will receive the Platinum Award.

Sean Smith, the Chairman of the Detectamet Group of Companies, said “I was delighted that we could recognise and reward Caseificio whose product at SIAL was not only safe but delicious.”

The Employers of Silent Guardians Are Recognised

detectamet-guardians-certificate-silver-with-contact-details“I have often described Detectamet’s detectable products as the ‘Silent Guardians’ of food safety” said Sean Smith when he announced a new award to recognise a food processing company’s commitment to food safety.

Detectamet’s Chairman explained that the Detectamet Guardian Award would be presented to a company that demonstrated its food safety culture by protecting customers and consumers from the risk of physical contamination in its products.

There are three levels of award. Silver, Gold and Platinum and they will be presented in accordance with the level of commitment made by the recipients.  Silver awards will go to food companies using more than three detectable products. Gold winners will be employing seven or more products and the users of eleven or more products will have eleven or more products in use to protect their products from plastic contamination.

Detectamet manufactures and distributes the largest range of detectable plastic products in the world. in the past 12 months more than 22 products have been added to the new catalogue. These products can be detected by metal and X-ray inspection machines that will reject food products containing detectable contamination.

“By using detectable plastic products in processing areas food producers are diligently and quietly reinforcing their important business of producing safe food.” said Sean “ They should be recognised and encouraged and I cannot think of a better place to start this scheme than here at one of the largest food and drink exhibitions in the world”
