Costly recalls break valuable contracts.

Recent food recall statistics reveal that almost all recalls could have been prevented if there was a contingency plan against them. Asking the right questions and finding innovative solutions during the planning stage of a food processing business should not be taken lightly. Overlooking this stage of planning can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars,  it can alienate even the most loyal customer base, and in many cases it can create a PR crisis that small to medium sized businesses would find difficult to recover from.

All it takes is one error, one recall!

FoodLegal principal Charles Fisher says if a product needs to be recalled, the minimum cost including payment to supermarkets for product withdrawal is well over $100,000 for the company. “This figure can easily reach $2 million if the product is a popular one sold nationwide”.  ~(Australian Food News)

With the right support and effective compliance systems, many food recalls can be prevented. Here is how:


Know your potential hazards; and plan on managing this level of risk. According to  a survey conducted by Food Standards Australia and New Zealand (FSANZ), foreign matter contamination has been amongst the top three hazards responsible for product recalls over the past decade. Contaminates include magnetic and non magnetic metals, glass and ceramics, stone, PVC and rubber.

Slicing-costs-CBS Foodtech

Choosing the right plant equipment can make a profound difference in productivity and yield, and can affect your output costs.

Before your product hits the market shelves, the two most important production tasks are slicing and packaging, and optimising these with the right equipment can have a significant impact on your bottom-line. At CBS Foodtech, we are literally slicing costs for the cheese and smallgoods industry through innovative machinery that is designed and built to help you optimise key production functions.


Discover our range of Treif Dividers and Treif Slicer Generation (PLUS) Series. They are characterised by reduced non-productive times, energy savings through slicing at higher product temperatures, even more power and dynamics in the drives, maximum process reliability, more capacity and even more flexibility to accommodate customer requests.

TREIF slicers can cut continuously without idle cuts.
That means that less blade rotations are required for the same output. Not only is this more gentle on the product, it also allows slicing at higher – i.e. warmer – product temperatures, saving you time and energy costs.

In addition this range of machinery offers:

  • A quicker feed rate, reduced non-productive times, and maximum process safety
  • Increased capacity and even more flexibility at your request
  • Perfect product presentation thanks to SAS procedure combined with circular blade technology, even in the case of “difficult“ products
