Mettler-Toledo Safeline Ltd has been honoured with The Queen's Award for Enterprise 2012 in the International Trade category.
The leading supplier of metal detection systems for food, beverage and pharmaceutical production lines has received the accolade, which is the highest official award for businesses in the UK, for its outstanding export growth over the last three years.
The Queen’s Award for Enterprise is a prestigious awards programme for British businesses and organizations that excel at trade, innovation or sustainable development and has been presented each year since 1966.
To be awarded the honour in the International Trade category, a company must demonstrate a substantial and sustained increase in export earnings over three consecutive years to a level outstanding for the industry and size of organization concerned.
“Award officials cited Mettler-Toledo Safeline’s strong brand strategy, executed through multiple sales channels, a commitment to innovation and an expert support team as drivers for our international success” said Alan Purvis, Managing Director, Mettler-Toledo Safeline Ltd.
Mettler-Toledo Safeline manufactures high performance metal detection systems for global food, beverage and pharmaceutical producers. It works in collaboration with international standard bodies and multinational retailers to develop guidelines for food and pharmaceutical safety in order to protect consumer welfare and brand reputation.
Recent innovations include the launch of the Profile Select variable frequency technology to enhance detection of metal contaminants in difficult applications.
Quality standards governing the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries are becoming increasingly stringent worldwide, with the introduction of global initiatives, such as the British Retail Consortium (BRC) Version 6, International Food Safety (IFS) and the US’s 2011 Food Safety Modernization Act.
Mettler-Toledo Safeline’s metal detection technologies enable manufacturers to ensure compliance with best practice and due diligence to protect consumers whilst minimizing the risk of reputation-damaging product recalls.
The company forms part of Mettler-Toledo’s Product Inspection Division, which supplies metal detection, x-ray inspection, checkweighing and vision inspection solutions.

Bioelectronic ‘Nose’ Can Detect Food Spoilage by Sensing the Smell of DeathNews
Strong odors are an indicator that food has gone bad, but there could soon be a new way to sniff foul smells earlier on. Researchers have developed a bioelectronic “nose” that can specifically detect a key decay compound at low levels, enabling people to potentially take action before the stink spreads. It can detect rotting food, as well as be used to help find victims of natural disasters or crimes.
