Cross-contamination and related foodborne illness are currently one of the major issues in the food processing industry, both for consumers’ health and, due to food recalls, also for the industry’s profitability. The main priority is, therefore, bacteria control and uncompromising hygiene practices.
Following careful analysis of laundry operations worldwide, Electrolux Professional developed Line 5000 laundry solutions that help to meet HACCP’s strict criteria. Electrolux Professional is the first and currently only HACCP International certified laundry manufacturer. Electrolux’s full line including front load washers, barrier washers, ironers and fitting solutions have been awarded the accreditation.
“The Certification Electrolux Professional has been awarded is usually reserved for food service equipment, so this is a milestone development for the manufacturer. It re-affirms the crucial role laundry equipment can have in contamination control, playing its part in preventing outbreaks and illness across the globe,” commented Richard Mallett, Managing Director of HACCP Europe.
“Following the experience we already have in the UK and Ireland, we plan now to extend the HACCP certification globally,” remarks Electrolux Professional’s Eugenio Filoni, Global Segment Manager for Special On-Premises Laundry.
Laundrylux is closely monitoring all updates provided by the CDC and other public health agencies following the recent coronavirus outbreak. The safety and well-being of our employees, customers, and the community at large is our top priority in these critical times. Many major cities, counties, and states across the country have declared laundromats an “essential service” to ensure that communities have access to laundry facilities.Discover the current situation in your area.
