Mekitec - Success Story

Hawesta is a global food company from Germany that produces canned fish products for all tastes with over 100 years of experience. To ensure top quality of their products Hawesta is currently using Mekitec X-ray food inspection systems. Using the Mekitec food inspection system makes sure everything that is not supposed to be in Hawesta’s products get detected.

The company started in Germany in 1909 and has since grown to produce popular classics and new specialized fish products from salmon, herring, tuna, shellfish, and mackerel. Hawesta has been a part of the global seafood leader Thai Union since 2016.

Mekitec provides guaranteed food safety

It is very important that food producers are able to provide their customers with products that are safe to eat and of high-quality. Mekitec uses X-ray technology to detect any foreign objects in the packaging and it also makes sure that the products are undamaged. The Mekitec X-ray system sees through metal with absolute precision, which is exactly what Hawesta was looking for since their products are mostly canned.

– One of the great benefits of using X-ray is its high accuracy, says Robert Fischer who works as the Head of Quality Management at Hawesta.
