To ensure the very highest quality for our bakery ingredients, Embassy Flavours installed new X-ray equipment in January 2011. This gives us the ability to view every product we ship – inside and out – to clearly identify any problems before they reach our customers. In addition to detecting metal contaminants, and a wide array of other potential contaminants, it even identifies underweight, overweight or broken packaging so that our customers receive the perfect product every time!
