Any thoughts on common footwear use in bakery environment, were usage is mainly flour..? I am confuse if we should be using wellingtons or normal footwear, if we decided to use wellingtons then would boot washer would be suitable option for cleaning them or  it will cause blockage issue due to flour/dough stuck to it..?  what is common practice in bakery environments..?

I'd go in reverse on this one - start with the footwear cleaning station and have the local rep review what the best footwear is for your specific application.


This is the company that can do just that and they are international.




They have assisted several of our clients and with good results.

Nadim Hi,


In my particular experience in a bakery environment we would wear wellingtons, some did wear normal safety type boots but only in low risk and only if there was an issue wearing wellingtons for a particular case. I have seen clogs before in dry areas too. We had a manual boot wash and had no particular problems but the site was built for purpose.
