Our business is here to help you improve yours. At Sentrex, we offer a wide range of reliable, results-based cleaning services to support the food production industry nationwide within the UK.

When carrying out our cleaning regime, we’ll do everything we can to eliminate the risk of cross-contamination, traces of allergens, the build-up of bio-films, and other risks that food production companies face. Therefore, by using these services, you can have peace of mind that you are operating your food production facilities in line with the relevant industry standards.

We adopt an approach to food production cleaning that sets us apart from other cleaning companies out there. We tailor all our cleaning operations to our clients, to provide the highest level of support and service. This approach is based on responsiveness, relationships and reliability; we respond to requirements effectively and efficiently, we focus on building positive relationships with our clients, and we provide a reliable, cost-effective service to food production companies and facilities.

We recognise that a ‘one size fits all’ approach simply doesn’t work - our clients all have different requirements. That’s why we focus on understanding these needs, to deliver a service that meets and exceeds them. Whilst daily hand-cleaning might be sufficient for one business, another might require high-level cleaning tools. Different businesses will require different levels of cleaning, from general dry cleaning to the use of product-specific detergents and sanitisers.

Our Approach to HACCP

food-production-cleaning-servicesHazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) is an industry-standard seven-step process for managing food safety hazards. HACCP principles include the following:

Hazard analysis - This involves identifying where hazards are likely to be or occur. Each hazard must then have its risk evaluated, before putting procedures in place to prevent, eliminate or control the risks.

Identifying control points - These are steps in the process where control measures are put into place to prevent, eliminate or reduce the hazards.

Establishing critical limits - These limits are a maximum or minimum level that must be met. Regulations usually inform these limits, and criteria can include temperatures and pH levels.

Monitor critical control points - Monitoring may involve observations or measurements to confirm whether or not the critical limits are being met. Methods implemented here will allow corrective actions to be taken quickly.

Corrective actions - These will be taken at the earliest opportunity when a critical control point occurs. These actions will aim to prevent, reduce or completely eliminate the hazards.

Verification procedures - All steps in this process will be regularly reviewed and verified to ensure that they are still effective, in order to keep your food, customers and employees safe.

Record-keeping - This involves documenting the plan and procedures to ensure that you are meeting and upholding the relevant industry standards and regulations.

These principles are a legal requirement and are enforced by both the HSE and the Food Safety Authority. At Sentrex, we offer the very best HACCP cleaning services to the food industry. Our tailored support ensures that your food production environment operates within the highest standards of hygiene.

food-production-machinery-and-plant-cleaning

No two food production companies are the same, and your needs may be different to those of your competitors. As such, we tailor our approach to each of our clients. When identifying your HACCP cleaning service needs, we consider:

  • The resources required to carry out a cleaning task
  • The window of opportunity in which the cleaning task can be carried out
  • The level of risk in each food preparation environment (Low to High)
  • The type of food debris to be removed, and the cleaning resources needed to remove them
  • The degree of cleaning technology necessary, from hand-cleaning to high-level restricted access cleaning tools
  • The standard of cleaning required, from general dry cleaning to the use of specific detergents and sanitisers that clean to the desired microbiological level
  • The surfaces that may require bio-film build-up prevention
  • The risk of cross-contamination through cleaning, and the removal of allergens where necessary

While our methods are based on established industry best practices, we incorporate innovation where possible to provide the best standard of cleaning possible. Our service incorporates a full cleaning method validation process to ensure post-cleaning results are deliverable with consistency.


The Danger Of Having Poor Hygiene In A Food Production Facility

food-factory-cleaning

Food production and manufacturing facilities need extremely high levels of hygiene and specialist cleaning services to ensure that they reduce several risks. These risks can come from unwanted infestations from pests, odours, and contamination. Regarding the latter, cross-contamination poses one of the greatest risks - it can occur in many different settings and ways, including through decomposing food matter, and through build-up that occurs at wall junctions and within food production machinery.

If these risks become a reality, then one of the greatest concerns is that food can become unsuitable for human consumption. Not only can this cause illness, but it can also cause several other consequences for your business, including penalties and prosecution. Here are the consequences that having poor hygiene in a food production and manufacturing facility can include:

Contamination of products - This can occur in many different settings and ways. For example, using contaminated water or ice to wash and pack fruits and vegetables can contaminate those products. If harmful germs are present on food processing surfaces, then germs can spread to the foods that touch these surfaces.

Bacteria, parasites and viruses - These can cause over 200 illnesses with varying degrees of severity, from diarrhoea to cancers. Unsafe food can cause a vicious spread of disease, so it’s important to minimise the risk of bacteria, parasites and viruses.

Cross-contamination of allergens - This tends to happen when several food products are produced on the same premises, and it tends to happen unintentionally when an allergen enters a product at some stage throughout the production process. Effective cleaning methods can remove the presence of allergens and therefore reduce the risk.

Risk of prosecution - If you breach food safety legislation and food hygiene regulations, you could face prosecution or serious financial penalties. This can lead to the loss of the business entirely.

Loss of reputation and customers - If you earn a bad reputation for having poor food hygiene standards, then your reputation will start to deteriorate within the industry. This can then lead to a loss of customers, which can have severe consequences for your business. It may even lead to the end of your company.
