early, they won't be effective. If left on
for too long, they will leave behind not
only soil residue, but also that of the
cleaning chemical itself. "
Most facilities today also have procedures
that must be followed before
setting foot on the manufacturing floor,
with everyone in the processing area
required to wear a smock and
walk through a foot sanitizing
bath to limit cross-contact.
Over the past six years, Evan Reyes, director of
sales, sanitation division for Goodway Technologies,
Stamford, Conn., has visited more than 600 plants to
improve safety and promote sanitation best practices.
" I've seen a tremendous amount of growth and capital
investment in the pet food industry, with a lot of new
plants being built at a faster rate than regular food plants, "
he said. " With that, we've seen an increase on food safety
and quality. That wasn't as big of a deal five years ago. "
Brian Wood, who retired as director of Brookfield,
Wis.-based HydriPet Ingredient and Sanitation
Solutions in July, noted a lot of sanitation practices
have changed since the institution of the Food Safety
Modernization Act (FSMA) rulings a couple of years
ago, which required that pet food be handled like human
food from a regulatory standpoint, and that's been
a great thing for safety.
" A lot of customers have set up a food safety plan,
which is required under FSMA, and every plant has
to have a PCQI (preventative control qualified individual)
onsite, " he said. " That person is responsible
for pulling it all together and identifying preventive
control areas. "
Best practices
Today's pet food manufacturers are looking for better
tools that can help them clean the challenging areas they
have to clean and identify the right solutions to help
them produce safe, quality food.
One area that can be streamlined is washing equipment
or systems to clean and sanitize bins, trays, racks,
totes, buckets, or anything used in the process that
comes in contact with the finished product or any of the
raw ingredients. Properly cleaning these items is a key
step to delivering safe, pathogen-free products.
" Cleaning any tool or container that comes in contact
with products after every use is of paramount imporDry
steam can effectively clean grease and other residues and
remove bacteria on a wide variety of machinery and plant equipment,
including sensitive packaging and filling equipment.
Goodway Technologies
tance, " explained Kevin Quinn, sales engineer, Douglas
Machines Corp, Clearwater, Fla.
The company supplies efficient washing and sanitizing
systems that can clean any container from large bins
to small trays whether they are plastic or stainless steel,
need to be washed in batches or continuously. Processors
can work with suppliers to design the systems that work
best for each application.
Another area critical to food safety is training. Food
safety experts agree that training is first and foremost
vital to any success as operations that actively address
their food safety culture establish risk aversion as the expectation
and not a theory.
" The importance of training the employees using
the equipment, the employees cleaning the equipment,
Technology
solutions help
processors adhere
to new sanitation
protocols and manage
resources.
