The consequences of poor hygiene in pet food manufacturing can be dire, potentially resulting in the serious illness or even death of your customers' beloved companions. Despite implementing strict hand washing procedures and standard operating protocols, the inevitable presence of human error and variability can lead to insufficient hand hygiene and the transmission of harmful pathogens. These pathogens have the potential to cause severe illness in dogs, cats, and other pets, while also necessitating a costly pet food recall and tarnishing your brand's reputation.
Not only does Meritech equipment reduce the risk of cross-contamination and pathogen spread in pet food manufacturing, our automated hygiene stations:
