Webinar Recording Now Available on Preventing Food Contamination through Hygienic Drainage

June 15, 2016 – A webinar recording is now available that addresses maintaining food safety through hygienic drainage solutions. The recording of the webinar would be beneficial for plumbing, quality, process and food safety engineers and managers, and discusses the importance of drainage when it comes to food safety and protection of customers and the brand.

“Drainage Matters – Protect Your Customers and Your Brand by Preventing Food Contamination”, was a complimentary webinar held May 25, featuring Mark Haydon, Strategic Manager of Building Drainage at ACO Polymer Products Inc., USA and Brett Ira, Head of International Key Account Management, Commercial Kitchens at ACO Industries in Prague, Czech Republic, as the presenters.

Drainage systems are easily underestimated as it is often out of sight and out of mind. It is critical to understand the role drainage plays in commercial food preparation, clean rooms and other sanitary areas where hygiene is vital and essential in protecting the processing environment which directly impacts the company’s brand and reputation. Poor, ineffective or non-hygienic drainage systems can lead to costly ongoing maintenance or worse, contamination and drastic measures and costs to rectify and eliminate areas of risk.

Future success of the food industry requires the continued development and limitation of risk from poor hygiene. Drainage plays a critical role in this development, yet, in many instances is one the elements most neglected, therefore posing a serious risk to future success and the mitigation of risk. Guidance is available through global organizations such as EHEDG, NSF and 3A, and this is leading to the development of better solutions for operators both in terms of drainage design and operational cleaning and maintenance activities. This webinar looked at some of these key areas and the new guidance that provides a backdrop of the new opportunities available to operators.
