How we helped a Food Manufacturing Client

Food manufacturing is a complex service. A client was having difficulties with a recurrent Listeria problem. After several attempts at investigation and increasing the cleaning to different parts of the plant, it had still not identified how the contamination was being reintroduced. Monitor Hygiene Services Ltd offered to carry out a comprehensive survey of the operation. By widening the investigation beyond the previous scope, we were able to identify that equipment trolleys were being tracked through the production area. This was leading to contamination through cross handling. It was a loop hole previously unseen. The route was changed and a more intensive trolley cleaning programme was proposed. The Listeria problem was eliminated.
