For 40 years, Douglas Machines Corp. has worked alongside various snack food industry processors providing equipment that effectively and efficiently cleans a variety of containers, tools, and parts.
The product contact surfaces of all multi-use containers, utensils, and equipment used in the transportation, processing, handling, and storage of snack food products should be effectively cleaned and sanitized before each use.
The purpose of cleaning is to remove Snack-related soils, pathogens, organic and mineral solids that form on container and equipment surfaces. The purpose of sanitizing is to kill residual microorganisms present on these surfaces immediately prior to use.
Inadequate or improper cleaning or sanitizing or both allows bacteria to remain on container and equipment surfaces, where it can grow and multiply. This results in elevated bacteria counts that are harmful.
Operators that manufacture snack products understand that repetition of the cleaning process is mandatory but becomes an issue when staffing levels are inadequate, turnover is high and labor costs increase. Investing in washing and sanitizing container system enables operators to maintain consistent washing long term while saving costs on manpower.
These companies trust Douglas with their container washing needs because we have flexible solutions with maximum productivity, decreased energy, chemical, and water costs, increased shelf life for equipment, tools, and utensils, and reduced manpower.
