This is even better than the FDA guidelines2 on detecting foreign objects of a 7mm cube or greater in food products. It is available on modest sized orders.
Dolav detectable material adds modern, technical innovation benefits to the already proven performance of Dolav plastic pallet boxes and pallets. Indeed, Campden BRI has tested and confirmed the Dolav Ace has, “Hygienic design” and abuse-testing confirmation by TÜV SÜD that “Dolavs withstand harsh conditions, better than other boxes tested.”
