Susanne Flenner, EHEDG Head Office Manager

European legislation requires that the handling, preparation, processing and packaging of food and beverages is done hygienically, with hygienic machinery and in hygienic premises. The international expert network EHEDG (European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group) is aimed at providing guidance in the jungle of standards and recommendations in order to enable the safe production and processing of food. The EHEDG expertise and guidelines will help you learning more about best hygienic equipment design solutions and they give food producers advice for improving their hygienic processing and maintenance conditions along the production chain in all aspects of food manufacture. To date, the international EHEDG experts have developed and published more than 40 guidelines on a variety of topics for practical use in food production as well as in food equipment manufacturing and other titles are under progress to complement this series. The EHEDG is a worldwide growing network of more than 1,000 experts to date and comprises regional sections all over Europe and overseas to disseminate the knowledge in hygienic design by international and local training courses, seminars, congresses and events. Equipment certification developed and carried out in various EHEDG test institutes is setting recognised quality standards and is strived for by manufacturers who are aiming to design equipment in accordance to the highest hygienic standards.
