Bakery Processing 

From milling to manufacture Vikan are here to help

Bakery processing

Bread, cookies, muffins, scones, cakes, pastries, pies – whatever delicious baked treat you make we can help keep them safe.

Bread has been a staple in the human diet since prehistoric times. Now the range of commercial baked goods available to the consumer has greatly increased, and so have your hygiene and food safety challenges. A bakery may produce everyday mainstays, like bread, or creative new inventions that drive impulse purchases, or both. In any case the maintenance of safe, quality product will be a priority for your business.

Vegan and gluten-free bakery options have been some of the most successful launched over the last few years. If these products are made alongside more traditional baked goods, strict control of ingredients may be required to minimise the risk of product cross-contamination, in compliance with legal and labelling requirements. 

Pressure to provide ‘healthier’ option by reducing levels of salt, fat, sugar, and preservatives in many food products, including baked goods, has created additional food safety and quality challenges, through the removal of these traditional food safety/spoilage ‘hurdles’.

The impact of all of these challenges can be significantly reduced through the maintenance of high levels of environmental and equipment hygiene and Vikan’s tools and experts are here to help.

Selecting the right cleaning tools 

Before you select a cleaning tool, there are certain key factors to consider.

Suggested Products for Bakeries

The bakery 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-coded 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.
