Food handling pallets meet food industry needs

08 June 2018

Dolav’s plastic pallet boxes are now available in a version which is produced from foreign object detectable material. Magnetic particles are added to Dolav HDPE during the manufacturing process. 

At Foodex 2018 the company demonstrated the effectiveness of the solution using a 5mm cube of Dolav plastic containing magnetic particles, placed between processed meat slices. It was detected instantly.

The company has also recently introduced a new range of hygienic folding pallet boxes. This is achieved through the addition of a mineral during the manufacturing process which is said to offer permanent protection from microbial contamination for the life of the pallet. It can reduce microbial load by 99.99% and can reduce cross-contamination, helping to keep surfaces hygienic from microbial contamination while also reducing the need to use aggressive cleaning chemicals.

Campden BRI has confirmed that the Dolav folding pallet box, the DFLC, ‘Follows good hygienic principles.’
