Hygienic design to ensure food safety

Food safety is not only a complex challenge but also an obligation

The responsibility for food safety lies in the hands of producers. To ensure a safe food supply chain, food producers and their partners must implement safe production processes and equipment that comply with the stringent food regulations and standards. In this way, food safety and public health can be ensured worldwide. The use of state-of-the-art measuring technology in hygienic design assumes a central role in mastering the challenges.

Our Offering

Endress+Hauser helps you achieve your food safety goals by designing and manufacturing reliable, proven in use instrumentation that meet or exceed global standards and regulations for hygienic design. Our food safety approach relies on four main pillars:

  • Design and construction of food processing equipment using proven hygienic standards and practices

  • Easy and efficient cleanability even in harsh environmental conditions

  • Use of food grade materials

  • Compliance with food safety regulations, quality standards and HACCP concepts


Hygienic design prevents food contamination

Producers within the food industry must be diligent and continuously review the production equipment to eliminate the weakest link that may become a source of contamination. This is particularly important when changing recipes or cleaning detergents/procedures since conditions may change. Incorporating good hygiene practices and equipment that conforms to hygienic design criteria is a smart decision. This will significantly reduce the risk of foodborne illnesses.
