We’ll be taking our expertise on how to create floors that meet the highest food safety standards to several leading food & beverage industry events this year.
With today’s intense focus on hygiene within the food industry it is critical that facility designers, owners and operators choose building materials that they know will be up to the task at hand. However the complexity of the modern F&B industry can make this difficult – as the regulations that each system has to comply with can be extensive.
To discuss these issues, our flooring specialists will be attending both the Foodex show at Birmingham’s NEC on the 18th April (stand N219) as well as the 6th Annual European Food Safety & Quality Summit, which will be taking place in Huis ter Duin, Netherlands from the 26th – 27th May.
Attendees to these events will be able to find out the key characteristics that food and beverage manufacturers need to be aware of to ensure that the floor will facilitate a clean and safe working space while simultaneously being able to withstand the complex challenges inherent to the industry.
We’re also going to be joined at the European Food Safety & Quality Summit by the Managing Director of HACCP International EMEA, Richard Mallet, who will present a panel discussion entitled “How to Ensure Your HACCP Compliance”. The panel will look at upcoming HACCP regulatory changes as well as how businesses can prepare a successful strategy to meet HACCP requirements.
HACCP International operates a product certification scheme within which they evaluate materials intended for the food industry to identify food safety hazards and appropriate controls in order to reduce the risk of food contamination from those materials. This is now a key requirement of any due diligence process including the approved procurement of materials.
Flowcrete UK’s antimicrobial polyurethane range Flowfresh has been HACCP International certified due to its ability to retain an ultra-hygienic finish and its ability to be an active part of a contamination prevention programme within intensive food production facilities.
