Hygienic food bucket

18 July 2012

Cross contamination issues led a major food processor/manufacturer to approach Mailbox to develop a new 15 litre container to help reduce the risk of cross contamination within their production areas

The solution is simple but highly effective. A rotationally moulded cylindrical container fitted with a stainless steel carry handle sounds simple enough but the ingenious part is that Mailbox have designed an integral moulded-in tipping hand grip that allows the bucket to be lifted and tipped for emptying without the fear of anything or anyone coming into contact with the inside surface.

Moulded in food grade medium density polyethylene, the bucket is clean-lined with smooth internal and external surfaces and without dirt or bug traps. A choice of colours and optional lid makes this an ideal product for use in food mixing and blending environments, where cross contamination can become a critical issue.

“This product was practically designed by our customer. They knew what they wanted and our job was to interpret their wishes and come up with a practical solution” said Ian Fisher – Sales Manager.

Mailbox were confident that this new bucket would be a good addition to their range and quickly invested in a new mould and worked in partnership with their customer to ensure a successful outcome.

Gero Liotti – National Sales & Product Manager says “Hygienic, smooth, strong, vibrant colour choices, handle options and a lid! This new product from Mailbox ticks of all the requirements of a truly hygienic product that can be used in many food manufacturing environments.”
