Good hygiene practices are essential whatever business you are in, but none more so than if your business is connected to food preparation in any way. If your customers become ill, and the source of the illness is traced back to your business and is found to have been caused by harmful bacteria, then this can be devastating.
You may be wondering what this has to do with PVC Roll. Well, food poisoning is a huge problem in the UK, with nearly 5.5 million in the UK suffering from it. This means that it is really important for harmful bacteria to be controlled at every step of the food production process in order to prevent the spread of the pathogens that can cause food poisoning.
Campylobacter is the most widespread pathogen and is believed to be responsible for somewhere in the region of 280,000 cases of food poisoning, causing over 100 deaths each year in the UK. It is shocking to think that that this many people can die because of contaminated food; something that could so easily be avoided.
There are a lot of regulations surrounding food hygiene in the UK, with the Food Standards Hygiene Agency putting in place a Hazard Analysis and Critical Point system (HACCP) so that everyone is aware of the systems that need to be adhered to. What this does is to help food preparation business owners to identify where potential hazards might exist, and then take steps to reduce the impact these hazards may have on equipment, food and surfaces.
These standards cover things such as cross-contamination, cleaning, chilling and cooking and can be a great educational tool for employees. However, even these regimes are only effective to a point, and an extra line of defence is always advisable. At Strip Curtains Direct we offer a range of Antimicrobial PVC Strip Curtains which we have developed in association with SteriTouch.
Antimicrobial products are products which have been imbued with antimicrobial agents. Antimicrobial agents have long been used to inhibit the growth of, and even kill micro-organisms that tend to grow on food. Therefore, the addition of these agents helps to increase the food safety for the end customer. Adding these agents into PVC Roll means that not only do the strip curtains offer an effective thermal barrier by helping to regulate temperature and airflow but they also offer antimicrobial protection which resists bacteria, biofilm and mould.
Not only useful for food preparation environments, our Antimicrobial PVC Strip Curtains can also be used in hospitals and production environments as well.
