Mettler-Toledo Safeline Ltd has been awarded a second Queen’s Award for Enterprise, this time in the Innovation category. The 2016 award follows The Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade presented to the company in 2012. The leading supplier of metal detection systems for food, beverage and pharmaceutical production lines has received the highest award for businesses in the UK for developing its family of Profile metal detection products. The company’s most recent innovation – and the primary focus of The Queen’s Award – is the launch of the Profile Advantage metal detection system which overcomes product effect to detect more metal in challenging applications. The new detector delivers up to 50% improved detection capabilities; use of these improved metal detectors allows customers to meet or exceed food safety standards whilst avoiding inefficient and costly false rejects.
The Queen’s Award for Enterprise is a prestigious awards programme for British businesses and organisations that excel at trade, innovation or sustainable development and has been presented each year since 1966.
