About Honey Smoked Fish Co.
Honey Smoked Fish Co. saw the smoking process as a way to capture and heighten the straight-from-the-sea goodness of only the highest quality, freshest cuts of salmon possible. Equipped with decades of seafood industry experience they set out to create a nutritious, crave-worthy fish that could be enjoyed anywhere, without ever seeing a freezer. As a processor of ready-to-eat products hygiene is of the utmost importance and no one takes that more seriously than Honey Smoked.
What Challenge Did CleanTech® Automated Handwashing Solve for Honey Smoked?
Honey Smoked needs to ensure staff is washing their hands properly every time and with traditional sinks, there is often human error and the process does not encourage frequent use. By implementing CleanTech® Automated Handwashing Station from Meritech, Honey Smoked staff members now have a simple handwashing and effective handwashing method that "serves as a safety reminder that cleanliness is important in everything we do," says Executive Chef Keith Jones. CleanTech® removed human error and the simplified processes, in turn, improving compliance.
CleanTech® Automated Handwashing Stations Installed at Honey Smoked.
Meritech systems were selected based on the reliable efficacy, simplicity of the process, and time savings they presented. After examining the needs of Honey Smoked and exploring different options we selected the CleanTech® 500EZ, 2000S, and 4000S. CleanTech® Automated Handwashing Stations are clinically proven to remove more than 99.9% of harmful pathogens from hands in just 12 seconds with 75% less water and waste than a traditional sink. In addition to the handwashing equipment, Honey Smoked installed MBW 3000 Boot Scrubbers in their facility to address footwear between production areas. "I don't even have to worry about how [staff] is washing their hands because you put your hands in the system and the system is going to take care of it, it just doesn't get any better than that," says Jones.
CleanTech® stations serve as a symbol of dedication to health and safety
The CleanTech® stations show staff and customers that hygiene is a priority and that Honey Smoked is dedicated to quality and food safety. Jones says, "Everyone knows that we are trendsetters, in our processes and our thoughts and the way we do things we are looked at as leaders and CleanTech® supports that image. " By investing in automated hygiene Honey Smoked sets its apart by being a leader in food safety and hygiene best practices.
