Hygiene is of crucial importance in applications involving perishable or sensitive products, particularly in the pharmaceutical and food industries.
In the food industry all components that come into contact with the product – including the packaging – must meet strict hygienic standards.
The STI Group established a group-wide hygiene management system to test for compliance with all guidelines for this target market and to identify any product or processes requiring modification.
Here too the STI Group adheres to all relevant international standards, as well as its own individual baseline standards that each factory can strengthen to meet its own needs. Based on the customer's needs and the nature of the production facility, this ensures that hygiene standards are in place regarding:
- defined hygienic guidelines for each operational area
- guidelines for personal hygiene
- guidelines for pest control
- cleaning policies
- glass policies
- knife policies
- a clearly denoted hygienic area (as required)
