Vebro Polymers is delighted to announce that the company’s full range of PU concrete flooring systems is now HACCP International certified for use in food and beverage production, processing and packaging facilities operating a HACCP-based food safety management system.
Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) is the most internationally recognised system based on the production of safe food.
It is a preventive risk assessment tool that takes a careful look at food safety hazards and provides guidelines to guarantee that the facility, its equipment, staff and working processes never constitute a health or hygiene hazard.
Food safety systems at factory level have been rigorously tested over the past two years as food and beverage brands continue to navigate their way through the perfect storm of Brexit, COVID-19 and supply chain disruption.
However, no matter what the political or socio-economic climate, ensuring high levels of food hygiene remains vital across the global food and beverage sector and adopting HACCP’s seven guiding principles is the strongest way for companies to safeguard against contamination and ensure the supply of products that are safe for the public to consume.
When it comes to flooring in food production environments, HACCP regulations dictate several specialist requirements including both a seamless and impervious finish as well as being easy to clean, sanitise and allow for adequate drainage.
Vebro Polymers’ polyurethane concrete flooring systems offer the ideal solution for food processing plants, bakeries, abattoirs, meat processing areas, dairies, breweries, farm shops and catering kitchens.
From heavy duty screed and self-smoothing systems through to coving and coatings, the vebrocrete range is designed to meet the demands of the food industry and provide the answer for tanked or boxed washrooms and wet areas as well as refrigeration and freezer flooring.
vebrocrete PU concrete systems are installed in a seamless application and therefore do not support microbial growth, can be cleaned routinely through hot water or steam cleaning methods as well as laid to falls to prevent water from pooling or ponding.
vebrocrete systems also offer several additional properties for clients working in the food supply network, such as high chemical resistance, high thermal shock and cycling resistance, excellent durability and wear resistance and a graded profile for enhanced slip resistance underfoot.
