All food processing and associated organisations accredited to ISO 22000 standards must provide documented evidence of service and maintenance for equipment and services used upstream within the process to ensure that subsequent certificated inspections are successful.

Building services specialists Mitton, who have a 30 year track record serving the food processing industry, have introduced a new facility developed specifically for ISO 22000 accredited organisations. This involves assuming duty of care for a full range of services including water, compressed air, vacuum, air handling/ventilation and specialist gases as well as steam and condensate and L8 regulations for the control of legionella bacteria in water systems.

Operated by specialist service and maintenance teams trained to meet these requirements, all Mitton staff working on ISO 22000 related projects are qualified to Food Hygiene Level II certification in line with regulations.

The service is tailored to meet needs of each individual customer, with each site assessed and optimum packages implemented. Mitton also provides professional advisory services in line with changing legislation.

Raymond Cunningham, Operations Manager Engineering for Woodhead Brothers, is clear about the benefits of Mitton’s service to his organisation. “Mitton look after all our services on site, covering all production times and service requirements out of hours. We work well as a team and value their expert knowledge, helping us to keep expensive downtime to a minimum,” he stated.

Mitton’s Aftercare packages for the food processing and associated industries are managed from the company’s service centres nationwide, providing support and professional backup 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
