2013 earmarks the implementation of the U.S. Food Safety Modernization Act. One of the main goals of the FSMA is preventing outbreaks before they ever have a chance to become a danger to the public. Outbreaks of disease and food borne illness directly impact the reputation of the entire food production industry. Significant efforts have been made to increase the use of proven safety programs and methods worldwide.
Plant sanitation is a key element in a successful food manufacturing operation. Any processing is ineffective unless appropriate sanitation practices are employed. Food safety defines itself by its ability to reduce and control the spread of disease via food products. Implementation of cutting edge equipment is becoming imperative it the development of food plant sanitation plants throughout America.
Companies like Carometec USA are developing industry specific equipment that is capable of eliminating the spread of bacteria within the production area. From all-in-one hygiene stations to shoe sole cleaning set-ups, companies have a wide range options that can provide an advantage in supplying the cleanest food products possible.
"Carometec assists food processing plants and food packaging plants in establishing custom food sanitation programs. With food safety as a focus topic in today’s news, sanitation equipment in all plants becomes a necessity," states Jeb Supple of Carometec.
Packaging is also imperative if the fight against food borne illness. By extending shelf life, packaging helps to retain nutrients and cleanliness while allowing food to be transported safely. Shelf life defines the timeframe for distribution and use of a product. Increased stability is beneficial throughout the entire distribution chain.
Transportation is another critical component in controlling food safety and food loss standards. Programs that help to increase the amount of food that is reaching consumers are very cost-effective if implemented during harvest periods. By controlling food loss with state of the art transportation and cooling methods, a larger portion of products are able to successfully make it to market.
Uncontrollable food loss can also result from a variety of food regulations. Products may be required to meet certain size, shape and color standards in order to be deemed acceptable for human consumption. Waste is also generated on a retail level, through restaurant or hospitality entities as well as by consumers. The current approach to help reduce these types of losses is education regarding the economic and societal impact.
There is an expanding realization that development in food transportation, packaging, handling, storage, and processing has the ability to increase the health benefits and safety standards in the United States. These improvements can also help to reduce hunger on a global scale by increasing food production and stability.
