Alpet Q E2 Sanitizing Foam Soap

The concept is simple.

You might not think it, but hand washing is a really big deal for food processing facilities. The CDC estimates that each year roughly 1 in 6 Americans (or 48 million people) gets sick, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die of foodborne diseases. Some of which is due to cross-contamination from food production workers. Human hands can be a source for transferring pathogens from the contaminated source to surfaces, utensils, ingredients and finished food products.

The recently updated FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Preventive Controls for Human Food rule stresses the importance of employee health, hygiene, and education. Food manufacturers require their production employees to wash their hands repeatedly throughout the day: before starting a shift, after using the restroom, after lunch, after breaks, and after touching anything that might carry pathogens... including their own face. All that hand washing is crucial to reducing cross-contamination but it can also cause hands to become dry and irritated, resulting in a reluctance by employees to wash their hands as often, or for as long as they should.

Enter the California-based food safety company Best Sanitizers, Inc. Best Sanitizers manufactures hand hygiene products designed specifically for the food processing professional. Their Alpet Q E2 Sanitizing Foam Soap is pH balanced and formulated with emollients to help keep employees’ hands soft and healthy, even with repeated use. “The concept is simple.” says Ryan Witt, Best Sanitizers’ Vice President of Sales and Marketing, “Create high quality hand hygiene products that employees will want to use, and hand hygiene compliance will increase.”
