Effective sanitation and treatment of fruit is crucial in the management of fungal loads within a packhouse. Citrus pathogen presence should always be kept to a minimum to decrease the potential infection risk.
QMS FoodTECH provides a technical service in which key points along the packline are tested using scientific methods to accurately assess the risk for potential infection by common citrus pathogens at each area.
Data obtained during these tests are evaluated by experts who then provide feedback and technical assistance. The data is also a useful tool in measuring the packhouse’s overall sanitation and hygiene.
