Evolving food inspection/detection technology can help both baking and snack food companies get their products to market contamination-free and in the case of multiple-item packs, with all of the promised pieces in place. There are several points in the baked goods/snack foods production process that benefit from inspection (metal detectors, X-ray systems) and checkweighing technology.
