Hygienic considerations in food freezing.


The "food scares" experienced during the last years all over Europe and North America have increased the consumer awareness of safety aspects. This and the large costs involved in an outbreak of a food borne disease have escalated the already high hygienic standards applied in the food industry. The selection of freezing equipment has become most important in order to minimize any microbiological growth and contamination during the freezing process. Modern freezing equipment is designed and constructed with large attention given to material choice and cleanability.
