Prevent the spread and disinfect

Cleanliness in the food industry is imperative if your business wants to avoid enforcement action during a Food Standards Agency (FSA) inspection.

The FSA can inspect your business at any point in the food production and distribution process. Inspections include hygiene of food rooms and equipment, personal hygiene and food handling practices such as assessing high risk areas and if areas are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected before use.[1]

Unhygienic factories can lead to cross contamination and bacteria such as salmonella, listeria and E. coli spreading. For an effective clean, workers should carry out the following steps[2]

  • Clean and disinfect food areas and equipment between different tasks, especially after handling raw food.
  • Clean as you go. If you spill some food, clear it up straight away and clean the surface thoroughly.
  • Use cleaning and disinfection products that are suitable for the job and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Disinfection products should meet the BS EN standards. Check product labels for either of these codes: BS EN 1276 or BS EN 13697.
  • Use a cleaning schedule to make sure that surfaces and equipment are cleaned when they need to be. It can also help to stop cleaning products being wasted or used incorrectly.

Minimising condensation and moisture in food production is vital, as they produce the perfect environment for pathogens that cause health risks and contamination. Effective plant design can help reduce these risks, but effective cleaning prevents the development of micro-organisms and possible contamination of products.

Having a range of cleaning equipment that will clean and disinfect surfaces, floors and equipment is key. The British Retail Consortium (BRC) Global Standard for Food Safety ensures food businesses can comply with food safety law and state that ‘cleaning and sanitation procedures must be effective, verified and recorded’.
