Experts in food safety

Today, consumers are expecting the food they buy to be ready to eat directly from the package. The trend brings an equal amount of freedom and risk. Many viruses and bacteria, listeria to mention one, can be spread with food and water. As a result, food manufacturers have to be more careful with hygiene in the production line than ever before. Spreading disease can bring a tremendous cost to any brand, both in money, downtime and damaged reputation.

Food safety is one of our areas of expertise and we provide safe solutions for cooking, frying, freezing, chilling and proofing, high-pressure processing, tray sealing packaging, CIP systems, and food portioning. For us, food safety starts at the drawing board with “hygiene by design”. We design to minimize all unnecessary surfaces and use as little material as possible to avoid dirt traps. Our solutions use multiple hurdles to safeguard the products while being processed. With specialized control systems employing state of the art software and hardware, we can monitor and optimize individual machines up to entire lines within a food processing facility. This also brings the possibility to provide remote or on-site support for your processes or equipment. 

Furthermore, we use regular inspections and preventive maintenance to guarantee safe operations. Thanks to planned care of your equipment, you can rest assured that the equipment is safe to operate. JBT can also support you with training in critical areas such as general food safety, cleaning systems, and equipment design for sanitation.
