Covid19 has taught us that germs and bacteria can spread fast!

One way to ensure you are doing this is with an antimicrobial treatment. These speciality treatments will help prevent bacteria from breeding and living on surfaces within your workplace.

How has business changed since Covid19?

Covid-19 has significantly impacted business emotionally and financially in New Zealand and around the world. Businesses have had to adapt to many rules, regulations, and changes. One of those changes includes strict cleaning practices.

When someone with Covid-19 sneezes or coughs, respiratory droplets are released into the air and fall nearby on any surrounding surfaces. The virus may stay on these surfaces for hours to days.

Covid-19 can also be transmitted through human contact and, of course, within your business. Now isn’t a time to be taking shortcuts with any hygiene practices, and that’s why we recommend an antimicrobial treatment.

But what is an antimicrobial treatment?

Introducing antimicrobial treatments

An antimicrobial is a solution that kills or slows down the growth of microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, protozoans, and fungi such as mould.

The main classes of antimicrobial agents are disinfectants, bleach (which kill a wide range of microbes on non-living surfaces to prevent the spread of illness), antiseptics, sterilizers, and antibiotics.

Simply put – antimicrobial treatments are required to kill bacteria. And, killing bacteria is what we want!

We don’t want any bacteria in any business. And, we certainly don’t want it in places such as food and beverage manufacturers like meat and poultry processing plants, dairy factories, or wineries.

We cannot see bacteria with the naked eye, so bacteria in food manufacturing plants particularly, require specialized chemicals to remove the bacteria.

Bacteria in food manufacturing occurs when protein builds upon surfaces. All surfaces are prone to bacterial growth – floors, walls, ceilings, benches, and manufacturing equipment. Surfaces prove to be breeding grounds for potentially hazardous bacteria called biofilm.

Biofilm is a severe threat to your production lines, but our effective antimicrobial treatments sanitize and disinfect all surfaces and manufacturing equipment, killing a wide range of microbes.

Antimicrobial treatments help with food safety audits.

Food and safety audits can be unsettling, but if you already have a consistent food and safety cleaning process in place that includes an antimicrobial treatment, then you are one step ahead of the game.

There is no getting around food safety auditing, so it is also important that each food processing plant has a process in place that ensures consistent and regular professional cleaning. This is where our antimicrobial treatments are significantly beneficial.

All food manufacturing plants should undergo antimicrobial treatments to prevent the spread of contaminations that pose a serious risk to consumer health. Listeria, salmonella, E. coli, and many more harmful bacteria are removed during antimicrobial treatment.

Regular antimicrobial treatments mean regular elimination of bacteria and full-scale sanitization of your processing plant.

When it comes time for your food safety audit, you can be confident that potential bacteria growth will not be an issue.
