What installed? Four bespoke metal detectors, two of which were ’in foil’ systems fitted at the end of pie machines, while the other two were for use in the packing departments.

Why did you choose Fortress Technology? "We felt that the initial consultation given to us by Phil Brown from Fortress was very informative, and particularly emphasised how simple the company’s detectors are to use," says Kim Lewis, technical manager at Lewis Pies.

The result? "We are delighted with the machines and all the staff who operate them have not once stated they are difficult to operate," explains Lewis.

What it means for the business: "As a company we feel confident that we are providing the customer with a safe product assured that any possible metal contamination is detected prior to dispatch."
