ISS Facility Services, a leading global partner to food sector organisations, showcased its full range of specialist cleaning and hygiene services for the food manufacturing and processing industries at Foodex 2012.


In order to deliver service excellence, ISS Facility Services has invested heavily in research and development of advanced cleaning methodology so that food manufacturers have access to the latest, specialised cleaning and hygiene services.

Feedback from ISS Facility Services’ food manufacturing customers indicates they save 15% of financial outgoings by outsourcing cleaning and hygiene services to external experts, rather than managing the process in-house.


Key focuses at the show were the latest advanced low pressure wash down systems which clean sites more effectively, whilst reducing water and energy consumption; and new, fast acting chemical products, which not only save time but use less water and generate less energy than chemicals with sodium hydroxide properties.


ISS Facility Services staff were on hand to explain about its full range of services for food manufacturing facilities including cleaning of the plant processing equipment and the food manufacturing environment; pre-audit work, hygiene consultancy, periodic deep cleaning programmes, and waste management services.


Food manufacturers have the added benefit of ISS Facility Services being able to provide a wide range of other on site tasks such as security, maintenance, catering services, daily office cleaning, and janitorial supply and distribution through its integrated facilities management service approach. As this work is delivered using its own operatives, there are no additional costs to bring in outside contractors for ‘one-off’ jobs and the food manufacturer is able to benefit from the buying power of a global provider of facility services.


Outsourcing food production site cleaning to hygiene specialists allows food manufacture management teams to focus on the core task of food production and food safety, without having to manage an in-house cleaning team. In addition, there are no nasty surprises in terms of covering unexpected costs such as sickness and cleaning equipment breakdown, whilst variable costs such as chemicals and consumables are set at a fixed rate.


Antony Thompson, director of ISS Facility Services’ food manufacturing division said: “The show has been very beneficial for our specialist food manufacturing division. It has been extremely vibrant and our stand was busy for the full three days. Visitors to the show were interested in hearing about our use of the latest cleaning and hygiene methodologies combined with our integrated services, designed to minimise downtime and optimise production for food manufacturers.”
