There’s no doubt that 2020 has so far been more newsworthy than usual. Although news about COVID-19 may be overshadowed by other hot topics, the reality is, the global pandemic continues to have an impact in the food processing industry, among other sectors. The food supply chain is an essential service and, in some cases, one in which it can be challenging to maintain social distancing. This has led to spikes in cases among workers, particularly in the meat-packing industry.

Food Safety magazine recently published an article about the importance of cleaning for food safety that highlights the distinction between cleaning and disinfection. This difference is important to understand because without proper cleaning, disinfection won’t be as effective. This can lead to the formation of biofilms that allow bacteria to grow under a protective layer. If that layer is disrupted or allowed to come into contact with food, the result can be an outbreak that affects the health of consumers. Biofilm removal is also a more time- and labor-intensive process than daily cleaning and sanitation, so avoiding this problem in the first place will help save time, money, and lost production.
