Cleaning and sanitizing products used in the food industry span an enormous range of characteristics and purposes. Food plant managers and sanitation professionals must design their cleaning and sanitation schedules and select, or supervise the selection of, a seemingly infinite number of cleaning products.
There's an enormous variety of actual cleaning agents, from alkaline cleaners, acid cleaners, neutral cleaners, foaming, non-foaming, chlorinated, buffered, with or without surfactants, wetting agents, emulsifiers and so on ad infinitum. In addition, the demands to learn about and then make decisions about cleaning products have really just begun.
In addition to cleaning and sanitizing chemicals and agents, there are cleaning tools and equipment, ranging from a push broom to a drain brush to a multi-tank computerized clean-in-place system. Many people would put training classes and books about food industry cleaning in the category of food cleaning products as well.
The demands taken on by professionals responsible for cleaning, sanitation, and food safety in the context of a food processing plant are enormous and extremely important. With food safety, you need to be concerned about the risk to public health and the ongoing viability of the business itself.
In addition, there are an increasingly complex interlocking set of government regulatory systems and proliferating national and international food safety standards. And the rubber truly meets the road in a nearly endless series of choices about what cleaning processes need to be executed, and which cleaning products should be purchased to make it possible.
Of course, in actual practice this is just the beginning of everything that goes into your decision making process.
