The development of sustainable hygiene solutions has never been more important for the food manufacturing industry.
Currently, 50% of the world’s land, 30% of its power and 70% of available fresh water are used in the food manufacturing process. With food production levels set to double by 2050, the pressures facing the entire food supply chain are increasing.
There is growing interest from consumers around the impact that their food choices can have on the planet. With this comes a heightened awareness of the need to decrease food waste, which sits at 40% in 2020.
The hygiene process is an area that offers an opportunity to reduce resource consumption whilst maintaining and improving standards. Ozo’s combined cleaning and disinfecting solution, eloclear™, delivers benefits for businesses and consumers alike.
How eloclear™ can help the food manufacturing industry
Ozo’s innovative technology has enabled an energy-efficient solution that is redefining hygiene and safety standards. eloclear™ has been independently tested for antimicrobial efficacy against bacteria, yeast, fungi, mould and viruses, with UKAS-accredited laboratories. It also offers a range of quantifiable benefits to help you achieve competitive advantage.
eloclear™ substitutes hot water in the cleaning process, requires less energy to produce, and reduces five-step cleaning to two steps. The result? A faster, more efficient clean, with multiple sustainability benefits due to reduced water consumption, energy usage and chemical inputs. Food processors who operate in chilled environments will benefit further, due to the removal of condensation and re-chilling requirements after cleaning.
