World Food Safety Day

World Food Safety Day

World Food Safety Day is to remind everyone of the importance of maintaining food standards. Today statistics show that foodborne diseases affect 1 in 10 people worldwide, each year (WHO – World Health Organisation). Setting food standards helps to ensure what we eat is safe.

Those producing foods, adhere to very strict regulations and legislation, to ensure high food hygiene standards are maintain and the ingredients used are safe. Thankfully good food producers are committed to continually improving the way in which foods are produced and managed.

The food and beverage sector, however, face many challenges. The demand to grow production is met with the requirement to improve operational efficiencies, reduce costs, and meet environment objectives.

Gilks has many years’ experience working within the food industry, especially the dairy sector. We have seen first-hand the constant focus on improvement of food hygiene and safety procedures that this industry dedicates to the food they produce. When working within these sectors we work closely with our customers to ensure we meet with their health and safety standards and procedures.

The many projects we have supported have ranged from general maintenance to site refurbishments to new site developments.

Moving forward we are supporting our customers to meet the demands of gaining further energy efficiencies to meet their environment targets and reduce costs. With our in-house expertise we can evaluate your systems and lighting requirements and design a system to enhance the working and production environment whilst meeting your energy efficiency objectives.

Across the various projects we have been involved with, whether that is a refurbishment or a new site development, we work closely with our customer to ensure we work within their health and safety procedures and to suit their operational schedule.

If you need electrical and mechanical engineering support in the maintenance, upgrade or new development of your facilities, whilst gaining energy efficiencies within your plant. Then speak with our team who will discuss your requirement to provide a plan to suit your objectives.
