Suggested Products for the Food & Beverage industry

The food and beverage sector requires strict adherence to sanitation rules and regulations. Tools from Vikan are made out of tough, compliant materials such as polypropylene and stainless steel. Unlike foamed plastic or wooden tools, our high-quality products have smooth surfaces for easy clean-up and better hygiene.
Our tools are hygienically designed, which makes them easier to clean and less likely to harbor bacteria.

Vikan tools come in up to twelve colours, making them ideal for integration with colour coding plans. Colour coding helps prevent cross-contamination between raw and finished products, as well as keeping allergens separated.

Regardless of your operation’s size and complexity, Vikan has the tools and expertise to help you execute your colour coding plans.

Industry challenges and support

Food and beverage products can be contaminated at any point in production.
As a processor you have a legal responsibility to identify these points and control the hazards identified at each.

Key contamination hazards include:

  • Microbes
  • Cross-contamination of product by other food/beverage products, including allergens
  • Foreign bodies
  • Chemicals

All these challenges present a risk to food and beverage quality, and many to product safety, both can lead to loss of business and damage to brand reputation.
Fortunately, the risks they pose, to both consumers and businesses, can be significantly reduced through the appropriate selection, use, and maintenance of manual cleaning equipment.

Hygiene and product safety expertise

Vikan products and services are based on our unmatched expertise in product safety and hygiene. We continually update and apply our knowledge through energetic relationships with our customers; participation at key food and beverage industry events; and active membership of expert technical organisations, including EHEDG, IAFP and Campden BRI.

Control of micro-organism in your plant is critical to protect your product, consumers, and your business. Microbial biofilms are of major concern. These aid the growth, survival and spread of pathogens, including Listeria monocytogenes, and Cronobacter sakazakii; and spoilage organisms, including yeasts and moulds. In the war on biofilms, manual cleaning tools key weapons in your arsenal.
