Hygienic Cabling – Practical Research Results, by the Dutch National Committee of Safe Food Factory

14/05/2019 09:25 - 10:00

What are the (hidden) risks of cabling inside Food Factories and how can we minimize those risks? 


The Dutch National Committee presents the first outcomes of its research. The need for this research came from Food Companies like FrieslandCampina who wanted to have a practical guide (best practice, including research), to develop and implement a consistence method to establish hygienic cable connections in the Food Industry. Up to now, different food companies and contractors each followed their own approach, which complicated control and cleaning processes, creating all kinds of hygiene risks (from foreign bodies to cross contamination). 

The National Committee represents the complete supply chain of the Food Industry, including leading international Food Companies, machinebuilders, system integrators, advisory companies, suppliers and a cleaning company. Many different (food) companies, like FrieslandCampina, Heineken, Bosch, Actemium Vinci, Niedax Group, Rittal, LAPP Group, Synamic, IV-Industrie, Anamet, Hago Food & Industry, Tanis Food Tec, Duyvis Wiener, Van Lente and others where active in the reading committee.

Sharing best practices, experiences, knowledge, including videos of installing and cleaning. 

Because sharing is caring!
