As demand for food safety increases globally, Detectamet—developer of metal detectable and X-ray visible products for the food processing industry—is now expanding into Canada.

“After 4 successful years in the U.S.—operating out of Richmond, VA—we have identified Canada as the next phase in our global expansion plan,” says Helen Morrison, group managing director.

“Canadian sales have grown to account for a significant contribution of the US turnover, and with a heavy food manufacturing presence in Canada, it makes sense to open a site there, so we can service the market more effectively."

“Food safety is of global paramount importance and we continue to educate the food industry in how to avoid unnecessary foreign body contamination risks,” says Leo Wild, Detectamet Canada’s sales manager.

Detectamet’s sales and distribution center, based in Ottawa, will open its doors on April 1, 2019. Also, Detectamet will be at Food Safety Toronto that same week, and SIAL Canada, in Toronto, April 30th through May 2nd.
