Bakery Products Manufacturers

125837058_xlThere are more than a few regulations surrounding the food service industry and the greatest insistence of course is on cleanliness. Then again, why shouldn’t it be? There is nothing more important than making sure your work area is perfectly clean, and this is very important for bakery products manufacturers. The first thing we need to understand is that bakery products and their ingredients are highly perishable and they are even more so when they are exposed contaminants in the air. That being said it becomes very important that a factory environment have some of the following features in order to promote a better working environment.

  • Air Filtration – The air in the facility can carry germs and biological contaminants just as easily as anything else, and that means the air needs to be clean at all times. A good air filtration system will save you a lot of trouble and keep your customers happy, even if they don’t know why they are happy.

  • Clean Equipment – Your baked goods go through a lot of equipment over the course of the day, and making sure it is all kept perfectly clean is an important part of that process. This is a major issue that we are going to focus on later in this article.

  • Protected Employees – Your employees will come in contact with the baked goods more so than anything else, and for this reason, you need to make sure that they are properly protected. This means gloves, goggles, and a number of other items that will help to ensure they do not contaminate the floor or the baked goods.

On the Subject of Cleaning

We do have quite a bit to say on the subject of cleaning equipments, of course, namely that you should always ensure your equipment is not only wiped down, but sterile. There have always been a few ways to go about this, the most common being to dismantle the equipment on your line and make sure that it is properly sterilized. The problem with dismantling anything however, is that it takes time, and that may be time that you do not have. For this reason, it is strongly recommended that you invest in something a bit more substantial, such as a power washer. The importance of using a power washer simply cannot be overstated in any sense of the word simply because it takes what would be an otherwise complex task and transforms it into a very simplistic one.

The pressure washers available today are able to reach into difficult spots, meaning you won’t have to worry about dismantling or in some cases even stopping the machinery. Of course, there is more to it than just having a pressure washer. As you probably know there are quite a few of them out there, and they all have different levels of proficiency. The pressure washers that you would find at a car wash, would typically only utilize cold water, for example, and this does not help with the elimination of bacteria.

Bacteria and You

The application of pressure washers in any sort of business will help to remove bacteria so long as the washer in question is able to utilize hot water, which is a big part of the equation. For example, with cold water pressure washers you will not address the issue of bacteria, but with hot water, bacteria will die at around 200 degrees Fahrenheit. That being the case, there is a lot that you can expect from high powered washers like this. In fact, because they are able to reach nearly every nook and cranny on the production line, you don’t even have to break down your equipment. This will come as welcome news to those who don’t want to spend a ridiculous amount of time breaking everything down, and honestly, who could blame them for wanting to skip that mess?

The level of efficiency promoted by this simple innovation cannot be ignored. Not only is it a great way to clean, it is a great way to sanitize your facility to the approval of the USDA. It will also get rid of any hidden dirt that you might have been dealing with along with sugary items that have become affixed to the equipment. The sky is the limit here, so don’t miss out on this great option – incorporate it into your business, raise your efficiency, and make sure that your end customers are pleased. That is of course what it is all about.
