Konica Minolta Measuring Instruments offer traceable and trusted measurement technology for the food industry, including simple tristimulus colorimeters, versatile bench-top spectrophotometers, a range of controlled colour viewing solutions, and in-line hyperspectral machine vision systems.
Scalable solutions are available to help organisations and their wider value chain to specify, communicate, produce, and control colour, enabling them to increase productivity and reduce waste.
The saying goes that "you eat with your eyes", and whether checking the ripeness of fruit and vegetables, the appetizing colour of a ready-made tomato sauce or the rich colour of chocolate, the impact of colour on what ends up in the consumer’s basket is undeniable.
Compared to the variety of parameters which require analytical monitoring in a food laboratory, colour represents the only immediately apparent quality indicator and deserves the appropriate attention through objective and repeatable measurement of raw materials, production processes, and the final product.
Whether measuring the colour of cheese, meat, wine, dyes, coffee beans, fresh vegetables, or baking contrast units (BCU) on bread rolls, our experienced teams can help you to establish a measurement process that is accurate and repeatable whether used in R&D or on the production line.
Konica Minolta has a global reach, with local sales and expertise to assist you in establishing a successful digital colour data system. Whether between supply chain partners, in development, in production or in QC, our teams can deliver a solution that meets your needs, and partner with you to scale that system as those requirements grow. Our colour matching software is supported by a dedicated team experienced in installation, training, and customization of the solution to optimise your colour workflows.
Our measuring instruments are supported by an extensive network of authorised service facilities to ensure that your instrument is maintained, accurate, and traceable all year round.
