Visitors to BrewExpo America 2016 can Discover HACCP Flooring for Craft Breweries

Flowcrete Americas will be educating craft brewers on the benefits of implementing a HACCP Food Safety Plan at the upcoming Craft Brewers Conference & BrewExpo America event.

The show, set to take place at the Philadelphia Convention Center May 3 – 6 2016, has been designed to meet the needs of the booming craft beer industry. The huge rise in the demand for craft and artisanal beers means that craft brewers now produce 1 out of every 10 beers sold in the U.S.

The industry’s rapid growth has led to a new generation of microbreweries and brewpubs springing up all over the country in order to quench the nation’s insatiable thirst for craft brewed pale ales.

It’s important for craft brewers to ensure that they have an effective Food Safety Management Plan in place such as Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP) system, which is currently enforced by the FDA in the dairy, seafood, juice and food service sectors.

The internationally recognized HACCP system helps identity and control potential hazards at specific points in the manufacturing process in order to minimize or eliminate food safety threats.

As a result, Flowcrete Americas has witnessed a huge influx in the number of specialty polymer flooring systems being specified for installation in new brewhouse and craft brew facilities.

Recommended for back-of-house brewing, fermentation and bottling areas is Flowfresh – a HACCP International certified line of heavy-duty, antimicrobial treated cementitious urethane floor and coving solutions offering excellent slip, thermal shock and chemical resistance. For front of house areas including brewpubs, tasting lounges and visitor areas, decorative epoxy systems, such as the company’s Flowtallics UV are advisable.

Visit Flowcrete Americas on Booth 2462 at the Craft Brewers Conference & BrewExpo America (Philadelphia Convention Center May 3 – 6 2016) to find out more.
