Bakery Company Meets Industry Regulations


The company has established itself so well throughout this region that expansion into other markets has come at a rapid pace. Producing approximately 20,000 packages of pastries daily that are shipped across the region their products can be found on the shelves of many of the largest restaurants & hotels.  The family-owned business is dedicated to producing fine quality products.  The rapid expansion has meant adding more production, warehouse and distribution capabilities, whilst maintaining the flexibility to adapt to its customers’ needs and adhere to changing customer codes of practice.

Our client wanted flexible systems that could cope with the constantly changing lines, as they inspect approximately 35 unique fresh pastry products. Metal detectors that are simple to set-up and can minimize downtime were essential to their decision and the Xact M Series was the ideal product in all aspects”.

Paul Bennion, National Sales Manager, Xact.


After working with the company on this latest project Xact explained that it’s a necessity for them to utilise an inspection technology that suits different requirements and can quickly handle changes.

They required a technology that can withstand the test of time and the ever-changing demands of the bakery industry.  Our client went with the M Series Metal Detector


“As our client expands into new markets or distributes through new avenues, they are tasked with conforming to new food hygiene and safety standards,  The Xact M Series Metal Detector will ensure they adhere to all necessary regulations and that their targets are met.” Paul Bennion, National Sales Manager, Xact.

Add A ‘Depot Day’ To Your Label!

“Display until” or “Best Before” dates on labels have always been a problem if production planning dictates that you should pack several days ahead of the batch being shipped to the distribution depot, as is the case with many fruit and vegetable pack houses.
This usually causes problems as the old programmes were fairly inflexible with lots of manual modifications to the label design being required to adjust the dates shown on the label. This can often lead to mistakes being made and labels left with the modified dates rather than the original date.
When a label sent to the packing machine asks the operator for the “Depot Day”(the day the product will leave to move to the distribution depot), the offset days are now calculated from the depot date. An added safe guard is that the range of dates can be restricted to stop “Display until”, “Best Before” dates a year in advance, for example.



The modification, which can also allow fruit caliber to be chosen at the time of packing is supplied as a “plugin” (a small additional “add on program” to the current version of Girprint). The label delivery screen shows what will be printed so the operator can check the dates before committing to printing.

For more information on the Girlabel 12 plug in, and how the ‘Depot Day’ could work for you, please contact Xact on 0151 479 3020 or email
