The food industry is driven by food-safety. Detection of harmful microorganisms through improved process control leads to higher-quality food, with better shelf-life and fewer product-recalls. Annually in the US, one in six people become ill and there are 200,000 hospitalisations and 4,000 deaths, all attributable to food poisoning. Veritide is the creator of disruptive technology for real-time detection of faecal contamination on meat within meat processing plants. Providing both portable hand-held devices and fixed full carcass scanner technology Veritide scanners can be integrated throughout each stage of the food processing line. Working closely with major meat processors in Australasia, Veritide’s platform technology has many other applications in food, health and bio-safety areas.
