The Brisbane based fresh fruit and veg supplier Town and Country Markets has utilised Flowcrete Australia’s latest food-safe flooring innovation to maximise its facility’s hygienic performance.
500m2 of the full gloss, polyurethane, antimicrobial-enhanced Flowfresh Sealer system was installed in the company’s vegetable processing and storage areas to safeguard its produce as much as possible against bacteria.
Despite the previous floor being in a good condition, Town and Country Markets made this change as they wanted a HACCP International certified system in place, as materials that meet this standard have been rigorously tested to ensure that they effectively minimise the risk of contamination incidents.
The glossy nature of Flowfresh Sealer is not just an aesthetic benefit, as it makes the system easier to clean than traditional matt systems. A warm, buff yellow colour was chosen for the main floor areas, with eye-catching, coral red walkways to help aid navigation around the rooms.
Every system in the Flowfresh range has been designed to meet the flooring challenges within food and beverage environments. Its seamless, impervious and easy to clean finish is a significant hygiene asset and it even includes the antimicrobial agent Polygiene® which empowers the range with the ability to eliminate up to 99.9% of bacteria in contact with the floor finish. This bacteria killing property meets the ISO 22196 standard, which measures a surface’s antibacterial effectiveness.
