The Business Challenge

Ice cream sticks or bars are delicious portions of frozen goodness on a handy little stick that makes devouring them easier! Invented back in the 1920s and loved around the globe, flavours can range from decadent creamy, gooey, nutty layers to the good old refreshing icy pole (which is really sugary water frozen on a stick ).

With the warm weather easing, we had a few leftover ice cream bars in the A&D fridge, so we thought we should run some tests on them to see what could be found or seen through our inspection systems. Because some of the wrappers had metallised packaging, we decided to run it through the X-ray with a range of test cards. The X-ray software was configured to detect: contamination and product defects. We’ve taken photos of the results below.

…A little fun fact we found out when doing this test, Australia is one of the top three countries that consumes the most ice-cream!
Ha, go us!
