The SensorX superior bone detection system automatically finds bones and other foreign objects in poultry meat and rejects bone-in product from the product stream, enabling processors to deliver consistently safe, high quality product to consumers.
As a poultry processor, Boscher Volailles needs to meet ever increasing demands for quality and food safety. Today it is simply not acceptable to deliver poultry products with potentially hazardous bone fragments, and the SensorX bone detection system has become a standard part of high quality deboning.
Boscher Volailles has seven SensorX systems running at their plant. The first was installed in 2007 and the latest in November 2013. Boscher Volailles processes fillets, inner fillets, whole leg meat and thigh meat, and 100% of the deboned product is run through SensorX.
Only accurate, reliable bone detection can ensure food quality and safety. “As soon as SensorX was available in the market, we bought it, to secure our leading position with product quality, and to be the first!” explains Thierry Le Morvan, Manager of Boscher Volailles, and responsible for three other poultry plants in the group.
The value of food safety
“We are more expensive than our competitors, but our customers recognize the value of food safety. It’s a daily challenge, but I think we are one of the best regarding quality and food safety, especially with regards to bones, and that’s one of the reasons why our customers buy our product,” says Thierry le Morvan.
