Hygiene cleans up with quorn account win

05 September 2014

Expertise in microbiological cleaning has been instrumental for Hygiene Group, a specialist food industry cleaning company, in securing a contract with Quorn Foods in Methwold, Norfolk.

Supplier of the most widely available and best known meat alternatives worldwide, Quorn manufactures a variety of products including sausages and chicken-style fillets, as well as ready meals and specialty items. Replicating the taste and texture of meat, Quorn products enable customers to enjoy vegetarian versions of their favourite meals and are also suitable as a healthy option for meat-eaters, containing fewer calories and less cholesterol and fat than real meat.

Dedicated to food hygiene and safety, Quorn has used contract cleaners for a number of years and turned to Hygiene Group in spring 2014 thanks to its expertise in a number of areas, as account manager Scott Fowler of Hygiene explains: “The nature of Quorn’s production equipment poses several challenges in terms of a thorough microbiological clean, and we were able to demonstrate vast experience in overhead and confined space cleaning. Our teams are all highly trained and able to deploy a specially designed cleaning regime at Quorn which exceeds all food hygiene standards and guarantees that listeria and other bacteria are kept firmly at bay.”

Andrew Ingram, quality manager at Quorn, added: “Our site poses a number of challenges where cleaning is concerned, from the overhead equipment which must be kept clean and free of dust and particles, to a number of confined areas with limited access. Hygiene’s track record in tackling hard-to-reach areas, while still maintaining hygiene and cleanliness to food-industry standards, was exactly what we were looking for.”

Hygiene’s contract with Quorn includes a daily food production clean performed by two teams of seven, with an additional team of four to carry out domestic and amenities cleaning, including offices and toilets.
