Food Services & Catering

Food Services & Catering businesses are increasingly implementing quality assurance programs based on HACCP principles and an important part of these activities is directed towards cleaning validation. The main concern is the risk of product cross-contamination resulting from a food preparation surface not being cleaned to a sufficiently high standard. Food residue left behind after poor cleaning - often invisible to the naked eye - can form a breeding ground for bacteria and cause food contamination.

3M™ Clean-Trace™ Protein Tests are quick, simple and cost effective. They provide highly visual results in a few seconds and can help you assess whether a food preparation surface or equipment is sufficiently clean to comply with your quality assurance program criteria.

Below are some of the main products applicable to the Food Services & Catering industry. Contact your local 3M Food Safety office to discuss your requirements in more detail and determine which solutions would work best for your business.
