Webinar: Dry Cleaning in the Food Industry

Join us December 3rd at 9 a.m. EST
Cleaning with water is fast, easy and effective but its presence can encourage microbial growth and increase the spread of contamination. This is particularly true in dry/low moisture food production, where food quality and safety can be severely affected by the presence of uncontrolled moisture. This webinar presents information on how to optimize cleaning in dry/low moisture food production environments and thus minimize the risk of product contamination. The webinar is presented by our Global Hygiene Specialist, Debra Smith.

In summary—cleaning tools can become vectors of contamination in plants if they’re not correctly stored, maintained, and kept in the correct zones.
