Running a food processing business can be quite profitable if you set things up carefully from the start. Since your products will be consumed by a lot of people, you will need to ensure that the whole operation goes on in a sanitary environment. The last thing you want to happen is learning that those who bought and ate your products got ill. People trust your brand and give you their hard-earned money, so it is only fair that you repay that trust with good products that are safe to eat. Having a bad incident like that happen can ruin your business and sully your brands reputation permanently. This is why vigilance on your part is important. You must every possible precaution in place, including supervisors, strong magnets, and inspectors.
While modern food processing plants use state of the art equipment to monitor the progress, they are limited by what their sensors and programs recognize. For things that are out of the ordinary, humans are still the best at spotting them and making corrections, so it’s prudent to scatter supervisors along the length of the processing belt.
Another precaution is using strong magnets to attract metal which may have inadvertently mixed in with the food. This is actually quite common and the strong magnets can round up a substantial amount throughout the day. If these metals were left with the packaged products, the people who would eat them are likely to get sick.
Lastly, hire 3rd party inspectors to periodically conduct quality assurance checks on your processing plant. This may be an additional expense, but it is a cost-effective measure against much heftier government fines that FDA inspectors would charge if they were the ones who found unsafe practices in your plant.
