The global food industry, an enterprise in which over 4 billion tons of products are moved from field to table each year, can be broken into three main sectors: agriculture, food processing, and food retail & food service. Food safety is one of the most critical challenges to the industry. The food processing sector, sitting in between agriculture and food retail and food service, is a segment of the market where Bioquell offers unique solutions to enhance product safety and improve food process via innovative solutions for bio-decontamination and bio-burden control.
Bio-burden reduction and management is a critical requirement of the food industry both from a public safety and commercial aspect. Food safety with regard to bio-contamination free products will always be of paramount importance.
However traditional manual cleaning, which is by its very nature - variable, is reliant on individual operator skills and effectiveness, but still remains the main method of managing this critical process within the industry. The use of hydrogen peroxide vapour (HPV) technology as a routine and emergency bio-contamination managemet tool, offers a significant step forward in disinfection and process control, with excellent efficacy against bacteria, fungi and moulds.
Aseptic food processing is an increasing trend in food production technology, avoiding the challenge of cold chain logistics and extending product shelf life. It also clear that bio-burden reduction and management, in non-sterile process, again extending shelf life, is also of benefit.
Bioquell’s HPV is an established remediate that can be used in the event of a contamination issue within food manufacturing facilities. Bioquell also provide risk assessment and mitigation planning service into the food industry. This approach serves to identify and resolve contamination risks but also ensure that remediation plans are in place in the unlikely event this occurs. Bio-decontamination remediation can therefore be instigated quickly, minimising disruption and potential risk to the supply chain. Bioquell’s HPV technology is a bioburden reduction / sterility assurance tool offering a significant commercial benefit.
