“Ishida's machinery helps customers reduce the overall production cost. Most of the machines manufactured by Ishida are to control the extra give away. Thus, making sure that no product goes to market with any defects, be it contamination or under/ overweight. It complies with the food safety parameters as it fulfils the statuary regulations of weights and measures and also complies with the hazard analysis and critical control point (HACCP) system,” added Sharma.
