HunterLab Food Industry

HunterLab systems measure reflected and transmitted colour of food products. They give numerical values that correlate to what you see and are ideal for measuring raw materials through final product. These include liquids such as sauces and juices, solids such as spices and meats, as well as non-uniform products such as cereals and snack foods. Portable, bench and on-line systems are available.

Food is not only an essential ingredient to life and the survival of a human being; it is also used to celebrate, calm and comfort, as much as to satisfy one’s appetite. For food manufacturers and producers around the globe, maintaining consistency of the colour of their food products is not only a statement about their product quality, it is a quality statement about their brand. This is why 95 of the world’s top food producers rely on the performance and reliability of HunterLab - the worlds most trusted colour quality experts.

The perception of food flavor is closely tied to its colour. It’s been proven time and again through the science of sensory analysis, and believed to be a result of ‘cognitive expectations’ in human beings. HunterLab understands our customers’ need for precise food colour management, whether it is the colour of snack foods, beverages or tomato products, and is unsurpassed in designing easy-to-use solutions for food’s hard-to-measure sizes, shapes and textures. HunterLab was the first company to receive USDA approval for the instrumental evaluation of food colour, and many of the world’s top food producers rely on HunterLab solutions for colour quality control of their products, including Kraft, PepsiCo/Frito-Lay, Kellogg’s, Keebler, General Mills, Entenmanns, Stroehmann, Bremners, Arnolds, George Weston Bakeries and Mondelez.
