Date: 15 April
Time: 3PM London/10AM New York
How new food processing conveyor solutions deliver top hygiene and food safety. Habasit and NGI share their industry findings.
Belt conveying systems are frequently used in the food industry to reduce manual labor, help limit the risk of accidents, and increase line efficiency and productivity. However, their sometimes complex designs, and the challenges of food safety and contamination, mean that conveying equipment, whether direct contact (like a conveyor belt) or non-food contact (like adjustable feet or legs), needs to be carefully chosen. It must maintain high quality standards, be hygienically designed, and enable thorough cleaning to support sanitation.
This webinar will link the regulatory framework and cleaning requirements for food contact materials to the selection of dedicated belt designs and hygienic conveyor components. The focus will be on food safety and supporting food processors in their efforts to address hygiene concerns. It will also advise on cleaning challenges and ways to enhance sustainability in the food production environment.
If your food business uses open conveyor systems, this webinar will give you insights on the latest solutions to help you meet food industry challenges and decrease cross-contamination risks.
