Effective cleaning, disinfection and hygiene systems must be in place in the food industry. Clean, safe food cannot be handled or produced in dirty surroundings.
Dirt, in food manufacturing premises, kitchens and food retailers will form a breeding ground for micro-organisms, the general term for the millions of microscopic living cells which inhabit every part of our world.
Normally, cleaning is the first process, which will remove many of the micro-organisms which are present in the grease and accumulated dirt that is a bi-product of our lifestyles and our food manufacturing and preparation. Residues of bacteria are left and the second process, disinfection usually occurs on previously cleaned surfaces, when the aim is to further reduce the bacteria to manageable levels which will not cause illness or food spoilage.
Sterilisation, also covered in this course, aims to kill all micro-organisms. Thorough cleaning and disinfection must be achieved in many of our processes. In most cases, verification of cleanliness is a requirement of HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) systems, and to achieve this, managers need a thorough understanding of the procedures that must be established to achieve the necessary standards. This course is intended for managers and supervisors, to enable them to have the understanding to set up systems and comply with the law.
