It is the ultimate responsibility of the food industry to ensure that the products they source, process and pack can be safely consumed, so physical, chemical and biological cleanliness is an absolute prerequisite. A wide range of hazards face food manufacturers including contamination hazards, cross contamination, allergens, cleaning residues and lubricants.
The new BRC Global Standard for Food Safety – Version 08 contains a fundamental clause in Section 4.11 – Housekeeping and Hygiene stating that: ‘Housekeeping and cleaning systems shall be in place which ensure appropriate standards of hygiene are maintained at all times and the risk of product contamination is minimised.’
Hillbrush Hygiene offers a comprehensive range of the most advanced hygienic cleaning tools available, including our pioneering Resin Set DRS® brushes that feature a recessed area injected with anti-microbial resin to ensure filament retention as well as Anti-Microbial tools, and our metal and x-ray detectable plastic MDX brushes and cleaning equipment that minimise the risk of foreign object contamination. Our Anti-Microbial cleaning tools are designed to prevent the spread of harmful bacteria, fungi and moulds; bacteria can't survive on the surface of the product.
Hillbrush Anti-Microbial is a colour coded range of cleaning products designed to help prevent the spread of cross-contamination in food process areas by preventing the growth of bacteria.
Colour coded cleaning equipment has become standard practice - products with matching coloured handles and heads can be identified quickly and easily to avoiding the risk of cross contamination. Colour coding is especially important in workplaces where several languages are spoken.
