Renshaw Napier, a leading supplier of ingredients to bakery manufacturers, has turned to Hygiene Group to handle the cleaning of its production facility in Liverpool.
Supplying marzipan, sugar paste, icing sugars and almond pastes to manufacturers and retailers, Renshaw Napier's manufacturing site poses several hygiene challenges including compliance with allergen standards due to the processing of nuts. With experience of contract cleaning within the food manufacturing industry and an indepth knowledge of legislation and standards, Hygiene Group was appointed to manage the complex cleaning requirements of the facility and has put in place a dedicated team.
As well as general cleaning of amenities including offices, Hygiene provides a variety of services to Renshaw Napier including end-of-run and deep cleaning of production processes and packing lines, scheduled cleaning of high level structures, and perimeter cleaning around the plant. For this particular facility cleaning at height is a key requirement, demanding a variety of access solutions from Hygiene's operatives who are all trained in high-level cleaning programmes.
Mike Waine of Renshaw Napier said: “Our customers demand the highest quality ingredients which adhere exactly to food hygiene legislation and, as we work with many allergens including nuts, we want to make sure our products are safe for eventual consumers. Hygiene Group easily demonstrated its expertise and experience in maintaining clean, contaminant-free food manufacturing facilities meaning its teams are ideal for the job.”
Hygiene's contract manager, Mike Moritz, added: “Renshaw Napier needed an expert cleaning company that could be flexible enough to work around production demand, work effectively at height, and had in-depth knowledge of allergen standards. Hygiene's commitment to training and our experience of working with other producers of bakery supplies, allowed us to fulfil all those criteria.”
