Food Industry Application

Footbaths don’t work

In the food industry, contaminated shoes and boots not only harbour soil and food residue, they provide a safe haven where dangerous microorganisms can grow and subsequently contaminate products. This leads to foodborne disease, or contribute to poor shelf-life in food products.

One of the most common ways to control cross contamination in the food industry is by the use of sanitised footbaths. Unfortunately, footbaths are only effective if the insides of the shoes are free from food residue and soil. The same applies for foaming sanitiser units which automatically place the sanitiser on the floor.

Yes that’s right - footbaths are clearly useless and ineffective if there is soil inside the soles of the safety shoes or boots. Why? This is because the sanitiser targets the surface of the soles and if there are food particles present, only the surface is sanitised, not the inside. The inside provides a safe haven for microorganisms to survive and grow. The larger the food particle, the longer it takes for the sanitiser to penetrate inside the sole, therefore becoming less effective in its task. Even worst is the fact that chemical sanitiser loses their effectiveness as soon as it comes into direct contact with organic matter, thus rendering it ineffective. Have you ever worked out how much wasteful sanitiser you’re paying in one year?
