Food Master eBook 
~ 2024 ~ Volume 4

Regulations and good manufacturing processes mean food and beverage processors must develop, document, implement, and maintain procedures for cleaning all equipment, floors, ceilings, overheads, walls, loading docks, utensils, and more.

After cleaning comes sanitization. USDA’s HACCP regulation defines sanitation: “Sanitation maintains or restores a state of cleanliness and promotes hygiene for prevention of foodborne illness.”

In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, this critical section of the Food Master guide can help you find exactly what you need to clean and sanitize your plant as well as what is needed to maintain it on a regular basis. Because food safety plans and food quality plans should already be in place at facilities, this section also makes it easy to find what is needed to get and stay in compliance.

Do you need PPE for your workers? Check out the Clothing & Personal Protective Equipment section. Cleaning chemicals for the facility? We’ve got the right suppliers. Mats or floor coverings? Whether for comfort or safety, we have those, too. Need sterilizing equipment? That can also be found here.

Maybe you are looking to install a clean in place (CIP) system or replace CIP equipment. Either way, processors must document that the proper cleaning and sanitizing parameters are used for each cleaning cycle. This means that the information should be captured electronically by the processing system software or the CIP equipment software, or the individual monitoring the program must record times, temperatures, and concentrations of chemicals. We’ve got you covered, you’ll find CIP controllers in this section, too.

When equipment eventually wears down, repairing it is all part of maintenance, of course. We have a Food Equipment Repair subcategory. If you are you just looking to lubricate some parts on your equipment, we have suppliers that provide the food grade grease needed to keep everything running smoothly.

Do not forget that pest control and pest control management are part of food safety. Check out the Insect Control and Pest Control subcategories to find the solution that is right for your plant.
