Maintaining Cleanliness in Food Processing Facilities: Advice from our Friends at Spartan Chemical
February 4 2024, 8:21 pm
When considering the cleanliness of a Food Processing Facility, the “Personal Brand” is perhaps not the first concern that comes to mind. Unfortunately, that is what is at stake when a Food Processing Facility is not paying enough attention to the nitty gritty details of keeping clean according to Drew Campbell of Spartan Chemical. “If a [Food Processing Facility’s] brand is damaged, it can be very costly…”
“….the biggest thing is making sure you have the right chemicals for the right application” continues Campbell. The main takeaway? The “Personal Brand” referred to previously could be irrevocably damaged if your food processing facility is not working both (1) efficiently and (2) based on its unique needs.
- Efficiency of cleaning a Food Processing Facility: “The biggest thing is making sure you have the right chemicals for the right application. In Food Processing, so many things can go wrong if you don’t have the correct program.” Additionally, Campbel points out that specific chemical applications to different spaces may need different equipment to be cleaned appropriately. Campbell adds- “…when it comes to product SKU reduction, I find that a lot of times facilities are either using the wrong product or are using multiple products to do the same job as one product could do. I also have been able to help facilities improve their cleaning times drastically. We can also help with SSOP’s and CIP cleaning tips.”
- A Unique Standard Operating Procedure: Spartan Chemical offers something specific to its customers: “We can clean anything from a bakery, snacks, confectionery, brewing and everything in between. We want to make sure that each facility can be confident in our program so that each facility can get through any third party inspections.” Spartan Chemical is available through Spruce Industries- contact us today to get connected.
