Best practices being employed across European food factories are aimed at the highest level of hygiene to avoid contamination of product and protection of the health of the employees.

This includes:

  • Separation of the manufacturing environment from any other part of the operation through strict control of access by people and goods.
  • Temperature checking on arrival of every employee every day.
  • Guidelines for every employee with self-isolation rules in place.
  • Operating in permanent shift and area teams so that infection across teams is minimized.
  • Vehicle and good access is strictly controlled and, where possible, equipment and goods are sanitized on entry.
  • Separation of goods vehicles and drivers from the manufacturing environment.

This is an example of a business response from Europe which we are sharing as part of our global best practice resource to help you think about and determine appropriate responses locally.
