Food Processing Hygiene

One of the leading causes of spreading bacteria in the food service environment is unclean hands and wiping products. Ensuring the right products are available to help comply with HACCP and Food Safety regulations and guidelines, is vital to maintaining the cleanest food service environment possible.

HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) is a program of identifying possible areas of contamination and instituting a process to minimise risks. While originally deployed in the food processing industry, HACCP has now moved into the food service arena. Hands have now actually become designated as a Critical Control Point.

Hand Hygiene and Sanitisation

SanSmart’s hand hygiene and sanitiser systems encompass a unique atomised dispensing spray of solution, that provided the right technique is used, will cover all those hard to reach areas of the hands.

SanSmart’s solution offers a cost-effective, immediate solution to increase hand hygiene awareness and compliance. Sanitising stations can be placed virtually anywhere, especially in areas where sinks are not accessible. Sanitising stations mount easily onto walls, portable stands, next to cash registers etc. By supplementing hand-washing programs, risk and liability is reduced while increasing safety awareness in personnel, customers and the public.

Fingertips, nails and cuticles – as well as all creases and crevices that are potential harbours for pathogens – receive a full strength application every time. Because of this combination of product effectiveness, proper technique and unique dispensing method SanSmart systems outperform all other hand sanitising options on the market.

SanSmart formulas engineered for the food industries meet current USA FDA food codes and NZFSA and AgriQuality requirements. They do not require rinsing prior to touching food. Gels, according to the USA FDA code require rinsing before food can be touched and new studies are suggesting bacterial build up is possible because gelling agents can trap bacteria on the skin.

Hand Sanitisers & Hygiene

Foot Sanitisers

Footwear is another potential contamination risk and one easy and rapid method to “stop contamination at the door” is by the use of a uniquely designed fully moulded rubber Footbath that both “cleans and sanitises”.  Rubber fingers clean the shoe soles while the antiseptic solution sanitises them. This superb double action helps keep contamination from reaching food processing areas.  SanSmart has two sizes of Footbaths available.

Odour Neutralisation

Vaportek odour control systems employ proprietary compounds of select natural oils. With the membrane systems, oil compounds are hermetically sealed into specially formed membranes that permit the oil to breathe through the surface of the envelope as a vapour. The disk systems use a special fibre element that is impregnated with the same natural oil blends as the membranes. Both systems rely on convection to carry the vapour quickly wherever air circulates – whether diffused passively or through the use of electrical or battery powered machines.

Vaportek’s compound is an odour neutraliser. It modifies the olfactory nature of unwanted odours to a point of odour disappearance. When two substances of given concentrations are mixed, the resulting odour may be far less intense than that of separate components. This is the principle behind odour modification, or neutralisation and the basis for Vaportek’s odour neutralising products.

Vaportek products have proven effective in millions of uses – including hospitals and long-term care medical facilities; oil reclamation areas; rubber, asbestos, shoe and fibreglass manufacturing plants; tanning and paint solvent companies; hotels; athletic facilities; office buildings, and fire and restoration work.
