Fortress Technology, a Banbury-based manufacturer of food safety inspection equipment employing nearly 70 food inspection engineering and service specialists, has won the top prize in the national PPMA Group Industry Awards 2022.

Known in food manufacturing circles as the Oscars equivalent of the processing, packing, manufacturing and robotics industry, Fortress brought home the trophy for Innovative Processing System for its time, cost and labour-saving digital testing solution.

Fortress, which builds x-ray, metal detectors and checkweighers used within a number of the largest bakery, snack, dairy, meat, confectionery and ingredient factories that supply supermarkets and retailers throughout Europe and beyond, were commended by the expert judging panel for “solving a problem applicable to all food manufacturers doing metal detection testing, making it simpler for staff with no production disruption.”
