Hygienic design is promoted in food engineering textbooks and is widely found in requirements such as the ANZ Food Standards Code and customer standards.
It supports operational efficiency with lower changeover and cleaning downtime, minimises unbudgeted waste due to shortened shelf lives or contaminated production output, and helps assure food safety by minimising allergen, pest, pathogen and toxic chemical hazards.

Join us to briefly revisit the general principles and pick up practical process know-how to help you deliver more hygienic outcomes on your next project.

The seminar will cover the why and what of hygienic design principles; and project stage reviews (when, who, scope allocation, tools, and how).
This will be followed by a discussion around other elements to factor into your project plan, and also touch on further learning areas you can explore, including; The role of the user requirements specification/ the capex-opex dialogue, control of construction/installation, cleaning validation, and commercialisation control.
