Cleaning in the Food Industry Training

Good cleaning systems are part of the prerequisites for any HACCP system.

"Housekeeping and cleaning systems shall be in place which ensure appropriate standards of hygiene are maintained at all times and that risk of contamination is minimised" – Salsa, audit standard Issue 3.

Cleaning in all food establishments should be thorough and systematic and the day to day practice of cleaning may be external, i.e. contracted out, carried out by internal company cleaners, or by food workers being responsible for their own areas.

Clean premises are a legal obligation and they will prevent contamination to food and help increase profits.
