Best Sanitizers, Inc. Helps Food Processors Improve Hand Hygiene Practices During Coronavirus Pandemic

Our goal is to promote and advance food safety throughout the industry.

Practicing proper hand hygiene in a food processing facility is always a high priority. Now that the world is facing a global pandemic, practicing proper hand hygiene is more crucial than ever.

According to the CDC, practicing proper hand hygiene is an important and effective way to prevent the spread of Coronavirus. Food manufacturers require their production employees to wash their hands repeatedly throughout the day. With increased handwashing, choosing quality products production workers want to use will help improve compliance during this critical time. Best Sanitizers recommends using a quality hand soap like Alpet® Q E2 Sanitizing Foam Soap to reduce pathogens. 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 goal of hand hygiene is to reduce the number of pathogens on the hands to the smallest number possible. Hand sanitizing after washing will further reduce pathogens on the hands, making it more difficult for germs to transfer on to surfaces, utensils, ingredients, and finished food products. For maximum pathogen reduction, Best Sanitizers recommends using an effective hand sanitizer, such as Alpet® E3 Plus Hand Sanitizer Spray. The additional layer of pathogen reduction can greatly reduce the risk of cross-contamination. The CDC recommends a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Alpet E3 Plus Hand Sanitizer Spray has a 71% Ethanol formula and is 99.9999% effective in killing 26 tested pathogens in 15 seconds, which is one of the highest LOG reductions in the industry. Alpet E3 Plus is formulated with emollients to keep hands soft and healthy, even with repeated use. As a spray, it goes on light and leaves hands feeling silky, not heavy and sticky.

Since the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak, Best Sanitizers has been working around the clock to provide our nation’s food manufacturers with the cleaning and sanitizing products they need to keep our food supply safe. In response to the industry’s need for hand hygiene compliance, Best Sanitizers is offering free webinar hand hygiene trainings. Food plants needing guidance and support can learn more and schedule their training by calling Best Sanitizers at 888.225.3267.

“Our goal is to promote and advance food safety throughout the industry,” states Ryan Witt, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We want to provide food industry professionals with the tools and education they need to reduce cross-contamination from hands.”

Additionally, Best Sanitizers’ attained the “emerging pathogen” wording for the SARS-CoV-2 on the Alpet D2 Surface Sanitizer product label in response to the industry’s need for approved chemicals against the coronavirus. Alpet D2 is an alcohol-based surface sanitizer that is ready-to-use, highly evaporative, and ideal for water sensitive equipment. It has the fastest kill times available for non-food contact and food contact surfaces. Alpet D2 has a 60 second kill claim on food contact surfaces and a 10 second kill claim on non-food contact surfaces, meaning minimal down time for production. Alpet D2 Surface Sanitizer is NSF listed, EPA registered, Kosher, Pareve and Halal certified.

Best Sanitizers' Alpet D2 Surface Sanitizer is available in one-quart bottles with trigger sprayers, 5 gallon pails, 5 gallon pails with insert and dip tube to fit Best Sanitizers’ footwear sanitizing units, and 50 gallon drums. For added convenience, Alpet D2 Surface Sanitizing Wipes are available in a heavy duty 90-count wipe and a 160-count medium duty wipe. Alpet D2 Surface Sanitizing Wipes are not included on the EPA’s list of Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-COV-2.
