Food processing is usually a mechanical process that utilizes large equipment for mixing, grinding, separation, drying, granulation, filling & discharging, transport and packing in the production process. These processes inherently introduce a number of contamination risks.
Some of the challenges in the production are hygiene, taste and aesthetic characteristics. Important aspects for the choice of equipment is easy dismantling for maintenance, easy access for cleaning and smooth surface finishes with no crevices or gaps. Furthermore, consumers today have a greater awareness on the food chain and its processes, which have to be taken into consideration within the industry.
