The demands in terms of hygiene and biosafety have been increasing exponentially in recent years, in line with offering the maximum guarantees of health in food for consumers.
Hygienic solutions for the food industry have kept up and have also evolved greatly thanks to manufacturers' investment in development and technology.
Hygiene and safety requirements in the food industry
Among the greatest demands in terms of cleanliness in the food industry, as well as in safety, is the disinfection of the hands of the operators. Also, the shoes and clothes. The aim of all this is to prevent the introduction and transfer of pathogenic food products such as strains of bacteria and viruses, which are capable of endangering the entire food chain and the health of consumers.
It is necessary to disinfect facilities and all types of chambers and surfaces in which food handling operations are carried out with professional hygienic solutions, custom-made for the food industry. To achieve the maximum health guarantees, it is essential to have a hygienic and efficient design of the facilities, a correct risk prevention program and the appropriate analyzes for food safety control. It is also crucial that each company has action protocols for operators, with special attention to hand washing and disinfection. Compliance with these procedures must be ensured, and they must also be regularly supervised.
The three main certifications that must be met in the industry with the FSSC 22000, which ensures that food is safe throughout its journey; the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety (BRC Food), which offers a management framework linked to food safety; and the IFS Protocol (International Food Standard), based on the EN 45011 standard.
The regulation of the mechanisms for complying with the previous hygiene requirements is the responsibility of two European regulations; European Regulation 853/2004.23 and European Regulation 852/2004, as well as the implementation of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP).
Other certifications are ISO 22000 or Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points, also known as HACCP, without forgetting other protocols such as ISO 22005 or GLOBAL GAP, a set of standards for good agricultural practices. To all this, we must add that the requirements that a food safety management system must present are included in the UNE EN 15593 Standard, applied to the storage and transportation of food by suppliers and manufacturers of food packaging.
