Unique Products for Unique Challenges

Food safety and the avoidance of cross contamination is a key driver behind the stringent hygiene rules and health and safety legislation that is directed at the food and beverage industry. It is also a major management concern as a failure in compliance can result in the recall and destruction of thousands of products sooner or later in the production process, which could damage brand integrity and the company’s reputation.

Important information

Colour coding your equipment means that you can prevent harmful bacteria from being transferred from one area to another to avoid food poisoning. Colour coding of cleaning equipment requires allocating one specific colour to a zone or specific cleaning task. It ensures the prevention of cross contamination by visually managing the risk of using the wrong piece of cleaning equipment for the cleaning task at hand. Due to the nature of colour coding, it allows for a quick and easy visual inspection to ensure cleaning equipment is in the correct department. There are many ways of colour coding and the best solution can be found to suit the needs of your facility and to ensure that the colour coding plan complies with the guidelines set out in the Food Safety standards.

We’ve designed our systems to improve and raise the visibility of your internal hygiene control, support HACCP compliance and make it easier to maintain and document your protocols for internal and external audits.

We assist you to deliver documented evidence to prove that you are achieving the highest levels of hygiene and cleanliness on your premises:
