From French fries to hash browns and onion rings, as one of Fortress Technology’s longest-standing customers, for many years these two North American giants have collaborated to deliver the ultimate product integrity and premium quality from farm-to-freezer-to-table.

As one of the largest suppliers of frozen retail, wholesale and foodservice potato products, and with a strong global clientele, automation and state-of-the-art technology features strongly at the firm’s multiple potato processing plants. 

Alongside scales, shakers, vibrators, graders, baggers, open bag detectors, case packers, sortation conveyors, palletizers and wrappers, located towards the end of multiple processing lines are several dozen highly-sensitive Stealth metal detectors. Each supplied with Fortress customized reject conveyors. 

Every metal detector is equipped with the food safety specialist’s Halo Automatic Testing to perform a total of 180 hourly quality control tests on multiple product SKUs. Fortress also designed an ultra-secure reject system. The engineering of added safeguards to quarantine metal-contaminated products prevents contaminated products from being reintroduced to the line.
