Minimize food wastage and maximize profitability

Being an intelligent vision system coupled to the production line, IVSILA enables companies in the food industry to respond to the societal issue of food wastage in a very profitable manner.

53% of food waste occurs during the production phase (*). It is therefore a major societal and economic issue.


IVSILA provides a solution to both the problem of food waste at the industrial level and the problem of efficiency of food production lines. IVSILA visually inspects products on the line and analyse production in real time: defective products are reported to the production line’s information system as well as related production data, allowing the sorting of defective products and the correction in real time of the production.


Thus, IVSILA facilitates and accelerates the digital transformation of the food production chain.
