We designed our systems to improve and raise the visibility of your internal hygiene control, support HACCP compliance, and make it easier to maintain and document your protocols for internal and external audits. We can help you to deliver documented evidence that you are achieving the highest levels of hygiene and cleanliness on your premises.

We do this by providing documentation and certifications to show that at Vikan we produce all our cleaning using materials approved for use in health and food preparation environments, comply with US and European legislation, and are licensed under food safety and eco-label systems.

The effectiveness and durability of our colour-coded product range in delivering hygienic cleaning performance, and the occupational health and safety benefits gained from reducing the chance of repetitive strain injuries, have also been documented in third party test reports.

Vikan is certified to ISO 9001:2008 quality management and ISO 14001:2004 environmental management systems.
