The hygiene experts

Vikan cleaning tools are developed based on our unmatched expertise in food safety and hygiene. In addition to putting our knowledge to work in our products, we are energetic participants in conferences, seminars and the general debate about hygiene and food safety. We make sure that our knowledge is up to date, through membership of expert technical groups like EHEDG, IAFP and Campden BRI, and ensure that our sales representatives and distributor partners are willing and able to share our knowledge with customers.
