Antimicrobial technology for food & catering

Good food hygiene starts by controlling harmful bacteria in key areas, to prevent the spread of pathogens which can cause food poisoning.

According to the FSA, nearly 5.5 million people in the UK each year are affected by a food poisoning related illness.

The most prevalent pathogen is Campylobacter, which is thought to be responsible for around 280,000 illnesses and over 100 deaths every 12 months in the UK.

Cases of Listeria illnesses, although rare, can be fatal to vulnerable people, with the bacteria found in contaminated food and drainage systems in food processing areas.

As well as strict regulations which govern food handling practices, companies also need to adhere to a Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) systems to ensure that all bases are covered.

Identifying areas where hazards exist helps to reduce the opportunity for microbial growth and ensure that foodborne pathogens have a reduced opportunity to contaminate food, equipment and surfaces.

24/7 antimicrobial product protection for food & catering

Even with proper food safety and cleaning protocols, pathogens are a problem as illness caused by cross-contamination can be devastating for customers and businesses alike.

Educating food handlers and staff to practice good hand hygiene and targeted cleaning regimes can be effective to a certain point, but in high-traffic, shared areas an extra line of defence should be considered to ensure heightened levels of hygiene.

Biomaster protected products provide around the clock product protection against harmful bacteria that can cause foodborne illness, including Campylobacter, Salmonella, E. coli and Listeria.

The Biomaster catering & hospitality brochure

Biomaster antimicrobial technology is extremely easy to specify for food preparation, food processing and clean room environments.

Biomaster’s durable and effective protection against microbial contamination offers an ideal opportunity to add a second line of defence against harmful pathogens after regular cleaning.

We can help you find a supplier of Biomaster protected products already in use in the food manufacturing and processing sectors or liaise directly with your manufacturers to help create new antimicrobial products.

A continually growing number of Biomaster Protected partners can be viewed in our catering and hospitality catalogue across an extensive range of applications and uses.

Antimicrobial protection for food preparation

Any surface, including worktops and equipment, used when preparing food should be disinfected between uses and constructed so they are easy to clean and maintain.

Biomaster can be incorporated into almost any product used in food preparation areas and kitchens, both domestic and commercial, to provide long lasting effectiveness against bacterial build-up.

Worktops can be manufactured from Biomaster protected construction board or treated with antimicrobial powder coatings whilst equipment such as knives and chopping boards incorporating Biomaster protection can be protected from cross-contamination between cleans.

Antimicrobial protection for food processing

Cross-contamination in food processing areas can be a huge concern as bacteria such as Listeria can survive in the low temperatures found in cold rooms and commonly in untreated water in drainage systems.

Biomaster treated water systems, including pipework, hosing and spray guns can inhibit the growth of bacteria such as Listeria, Legionella and Pseudomonas, providing additional protection against pathogens between cleans.

To reduce the risk of harmful bacteria spreading further, cleaning materials such as cloths, sponge, squeegees and mops can all incorporate Biomaster into the final product to provide around the clock antimicrobial protection.

How Biomaster Works

 

Biomaster can be added at any stage of the manufacturing process and is available in masterbatch, liquid or powder formulations for plastics, textiles, paper and coatings.

When bacteria come into contact with a Biomaster protected surface, the active antimicrobial agent prevents them from growing, producing energy or replicating, inhibiting any further growth.

The controlled release of the active ingredient provides powerful, effective antimicrobial protection for the lifetime of the product.

Independent testing and free of charge samples

Highly effective at low addition rates, Biomaster has been tested in hundreds of applications to provide up to 99.99% reduction against harmful bacteria including E. coli, Salmonella, Listeria, Campylobacter and MRSA amongst others.

We can provide free-of-charge antimicrobial samples for you to test to ensure that incorporating Biomaster antimicrobial technology into your range of food preparation and catering products is as straightforward as possible. 

All of our antimicrobial food processing solutions are independently tested at a leading laboratory to ISO 22196 to ensure of a high quality efficacy against the microbes your product and end application requires.
