Dear Dr. Zin ZIn Nwe,

 

I'm from Myanmar.

 

To solve your points :

  • Food Plant : “deep clean” equipment need  to clean have less micro issues
  • Ceilings in most areas are of a cleanable material and appear to be maintained and in good repair
  • Food Plant's the walls and floors have cracks, seams and holes, and when the equipment, contains rust and nothing action for cleaning
  • Cooling units are regularly to be cleaned
  •  Facilities where overhead structures (such as lights) are  made accessible for cleaning and sanitation
  • People Movement/GMPs   is there an opportunity and need at your facility for additional training and education of production employees, supervisors, maintenance and QA on GMPs, employee hygiene and routine and non-routine activities/duties?

It's depend what your product is?

Can contact us : xxxxxxxxx

Kyi Phyu Soe

Hi!  It would be interesting to know more and know how it's manifesting itself.

 

Mould could be an issue with being unsightly in your environment but also limit product shelf life.  In either case, the first step is good cleaning and good disinfection.  If you're doing both of these then it shouldn't be an issue.  That said, if you have problems with mould in your product it's not only environmental mould which could be an issue.  If you're using MAP packing especially to lengthen life then mould complaints or detection in end of life samples can be an indicator of sealing issues.  Even micro holes in packaging can let in enough oxygen to let the mould grow.

 

If you tell us a bit more we might be able to help?
