Hygiene and Safety – Two Big Concerns for Food and Beverage Environments

Hygiene and Safety – Two Big Concerns for Food and Beverage Environments

From canteens to industrial kitchens, and food markets to Michelin Star restaurants, hygiene and safety are two of the biggest concerns for any food and beverage environment.

It may seem surprising then, that there are an estimated 5.4 million cases of food bourne illnesses in Australia each year!  That’s 25% of the countries entire population who fall sick after consuming food which is contaminated with viruses or bacteria.

According to data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), Australian food poisoning incidents result in 1.2 million visits to the doctor and 300,000 prescriptions for antibiotics each year!

Reducing bacterial growth.

We all know that it’s important to keep on top of cleaning your food and beverage environment, but like everything else, surely prevention is better than cure?  What if you could install a flooring solution which not only inhibited the growth of bacteria, but was also anti-slip and easy-to-clean?
