Hsufuchi Foods, Nestlé, China

Aflatoxin is a major issue for Chinese food manufacturers and processors. Food exporters face even more challenges, as products exceeding the aflatoxin level imposed by import countries can often be rejected, which can have a negative impact on the brand image.

As the global pioneer in food safety assurance technology, TOMRA has been collaborating with global and Chinese food brands to increase public awareness of the potentially lethal effects of aflatoxin. At the same time, TOMRA strives to reduce food safety risks in the processing lines by continually advancing its sensor-based sorting technology.
