Helping you stay out of trouble!
We step in when your shift or production is over for the day to clean and sanitise all your equipment, machinery and processing line and to the Australian Standard of hygiene compliance.
We understand that meat contains protein and amino acids, fats and fatty acids, carbohydrates, minerals and vitamins, and other bioactive components that require correct cleaning and sanitation – these cannot be cleaned away hygienically by simply using a pressure washer. Proper and professional tools and equipment, as well as following the right process and procedure methodology, is critical.
Our thorough hygiene and sanitation procedure is performed to a microbiological standard. What that means, is that we will ensure the equipment is clean, sanitised and bacteria-free before use by taking swab tests and ensuring they comply with your microbiological baseline level.
There is no guesswork; no short cut approaches. We take on a totally scientific approach that is delineated by clear guidelines, systems and procedures that we develop specifically for your site in strict adherence to Australian Standards.
