Cleaning Solutions For The Food Industry

Fruit and vegetable processing plants

Cleaning chemicals in fruit processing plants are subject to stringent quality standards as the customer is the next inspector. Biocel understands this.   Cleaning chemicals in fruit processing plants must sanitise the surface but not leave unwanted residues or taints. This must all be achieved during the fast-paced processing sanitation steps

Chemicals used to wash vegetables

Cleaning chemicals in vegetable processing plants similarly are required to ensure disinfection of the skin without detrimental effects but also the additional burden of added field-borne debris and soil.

The presence of microorganisms like Listeria Monocytogenes and other potential pathogens requires adherence to strict quality standards and procedures, something that Biocel are adept at and can guide you through the necessary implementation steps.

“If some confectioners were willing
To let the shape announce the filling,
We’d encounter fewer assorted chocs,
Bitten into and returned to the box.”

– Ogden Nash
