What’s In Your Food?

Find Foreign Objects and Assess Food Quality
In Real Time, At Line Speed


Improve food safety, quality & efficiency in your plant

P&P Optica’s Smart Imaging System can “see” the chemical make-up of the food as it passes by at line speed. Unlike other vision systems, our patented technology uses hyperspectral imaging to understand food quality and find foreign contaminants.

PPO's Smart Imaging System can collect rich information about food chemistry: protein, water and fat content; tenderness; freshness and more.

Our system can also detect even very small foreign materials on the line, at line speed.
