Food production case study

95% reduction in bacteria in a food production facility

In recent years, there has been extensive media coverage of numerous high-profile cross-contamination cases in the healthcare sector. While this has drawn attention to a serious issue, it has diverted our attention away from other areas with high contamination potential. 

This has made necessary the implementation of measures to overcome the probability of cross-contamination. 

One of the major regulatory control procedures the food industry has introduced is Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP). As BioCote® is the first and remains the only antimicrobial additive supplier certified by HACCP International, our Technical team have instagated this study to assess the benefits of BioCote® treated products compared to untreated products within a working food processing factory.  

A real food processing factory in the United Kingdom was used for this case study. The factory produced cooked meats for sandwich makers and delicatessen counters across the country. For three months, both treated and untreated surfaces were monitored. 

This case study has highlighted the evidence that BioCote® antimicrobial technology integrated in products can reduce bacterial loads within a food processing environment, and possibly minimise the overall probability of microbial contamination to other untreated surfaces.
