Contamination In The Food & Beverage Industry

Controlling contamination is vital within the food and beverage industry. Production, processing, and packaging are common areas where the introduction of contaminants from operators, equipment, environmental factors, and cross-contamination may occur. Hazard Analysis and critical control point (HACCP) evaluation of processes is used to identify the critical steps and parameters needed to operate clean and safe facilities.

Food and beverage manufacturing is vulnerable to biological, physical, and chemical contamination. Culprits for contamination in commercial kitchens can include foreign objects, pesticides, bacteria, mold, and allergens such as gluten. Microbial contamination is probably the biggest concern in food and beverage production because of the severity of the outcomes. Organisms including Salmonella, Listeria, E. coli, and Clostridium must be stringently controlled at all critical points in the process. The occurrence of contamination can risk consumer health & safety, quarantined, or rejected batches, product recalls, and factory shutdowns.

The risks to a company’s brand, its profitability, and its people are too consequential to be ignored. Effective contamination control is essential for facilities to minimize food safety hazards.

Dycem antimicrobial mats in food prep areas, implemented as part of a contamination control strategy, offer optimal support in reducing the risk of contamination.

Preventing Contamination in Food Manufacturing

Read this guide by Remax Products to strengthen your contamination policy:

“Because personnel handle the food in your warehouse, their practices are closely tied to food safety from contamination. It is the job of the manager in food operations to ensure that all personnel comply with the official contamination policy. To do this managers must oversee the training of personnel on food protection principles and food handling techniques. A training program for permanent, temporary, as well as contract employees needs to be created, evaluated each quarter, and updated if necessary.”
