Poultry & Poultry Processing

Protect your poultry business against bacteria, viruses and infection outbreaks

 

The rise of media coverage of pathogens such as Avian Flu within the poultry industry has focussed attention on the cleaning and disinfection processes used. Confirmed outbreaks have had a serious effect on poultry businesses, with farm closures, infections in hatcheries and the reduction of viable egg yield.

 

To maximise revenue and minimise bird morbidity, the industry requires exceptionally high standards of hygiene throughout the complex processes. Hatcheries cleaning egg incubators to ensure that live eggs are viable, poultry broiler shed require hygiene procedures in the sheds between the six week growth periods, including the water drinkers. To minimise cross-infection, the transport vehicles require full decontamination when leaving or arriving at the farm or processing plane. Our range of DEFRA-approved products clean to the microbially level, leaving behind a residual, protective, antimicrobial barrier to reduce cross contamination.

 

To maintain infection control and to adhere to the legal requirement for hand hygiene, we also offer a hand-washing sanitiser which removes harmful microbes and provides protection for up to 24 hours from a single application.

Nigel was contacted to come to our facility to eradicate a Norovirus outbreak. We found Nigel to be very professional, honest, and efficient in both his approach and in performing his service.
