Avoid costly food safety scares

October 07

Food safety scares present a massive threat to food manufacturers not only in terms of the financial impact, but the damaging effect they can have on a company’s brand. It is therefore little surprise that hygiene and food safety are cited as a primary concern by food manufacturers.

In food processing environments, it is essential that hygiene policies concentrate not only on the safety of the premises and staff training, but the use of suitable equipment for the storing and handling of food.

As the UK’s leading independent supplier of plastic pallets and containers Goplasticpallets.com understands the needs of food manufacturers for robust storage that meets the industry’s stringent hygiene standards.

Goplasticpallets.com’s GoBox 1210 BBC bulk storage box is the perfect choice for applications where cleanliness and hygiene are of prime importance including food processing, vegetable harvesting, meat handling and fats and oils. The box is so diverse it has even been used for collecting waste chocolate from Mars bars to use on pig farms!

Optimium hygiene is guaranteed due to the smooth, sealed surfaces and curved corners of the box which prevent impurities accumulating and means it can be easily washed and steam cleaned time and time again. A strong, solid base and side walls offer superior strength and durability giving the box an estimated service life of up to 10 years.

Despite the considerable footprint of the GoBox 1210 BBC, which measures 1200mm (L) x 1000mm (W) x 760mm (H), it remains incredibly light at just 38.5kg but offers an internal capacity of up to 616 litres – ideal for storing and recycling food waste.

The bulk storage box comes in grey or blue and on three runners as standard, so it can be used in racking or stacked up to five high for the ultimate space saving solution. Options include four feet; a drop down door for easy access; lids to ensure contents is stored securely; additional colours and printing for personalisation.

For further information about Goplasticpallets.com’s GoBox 1210 BBC bulk storage box call 01323 744 057, or visit www.goplasticpallets.com.
