For processing area
In a food processing factory, the area with the largest area is the processing area. As a place where workers are directly processing, so the processing area must have strict regulations and requirements such as:
Must ensure food safety and hygiene. Usually the processing area will be in the center and must be completely isolated from other areas. Before entering the processing area, they must wash their hands, clean them, change their clothes and protect themselves such as gloves, hoods, and boots in accordance with the factory specifications.
Because it is a special frozen product, the processing area must have the required temperature.
Processed water must be clean and meet technical requirements.
The drainage in this area needs to be ensured well, especially the drainage ditches to avoid the source of bacteria from there.
For the freezing area
After preliminary processing – processing the product is frozen at standard temperature. Therefore, the freezing area must be planned adjacent to the processing area.
The temperature of the freezing area must reach -400C. Like the processing area, the freezing area also has very strict hygiene requirements and requires isolation from the outside, the floor and walls are also lined with ceramic tiles to ensure cleanliness.
After freezing, the food is put into storage. Thus, the storage area needs to be planned next to the freezing area, besides, it is also connected to the export area to facilitate the export of goods.
The storage area requires a temperature of -200C and the floor and walls are covered with ceramic tiles to avoid mold and are always kept clean. When entering and leaving the storage area, it is necessary to have protective clothing to ensure hygiene, to avoid bacteria following people entering and leaving the food.
