Renshaw Napier, a leading supplier of ingredients to bakery manufacturers, has turned to contract cleaning specialists Hygiene Group to handle the cleaning of its production facility in Liverpool.

Supplying marzipan, sugar paste, and icing sugars, Renshaw Napier’s manufacturing site poses several hygiene challenges including compliance with allergen standards due to the processing of nuts. Hygiene provides a variety of services including end-of-run and deep cleaning of production processes and packing lines, scheduled cleaning of high level structures, and perimeter cleaning around the plant. Cleaning at height is a key requirement, demanding a variety of access solutions from Hygiene operatives.

Mike Waine of Renshaw Napier commented: “Our customers demand the highest quality ingredients which adhere to food hygiene legislation and, as we work with many allergens, we want to make sure our products are safe for eventual consumers. Hygiene easily demonstrated their expertise in maintaining clean, contaminant-free facilities meaning their teams are ideal for the job.”

Hygiene Contract Manager Mike Moritz added: “Renshaw Napier needed an expert cleaning company that could be flexible enough to work around production demand, work effectively at height, and had in-depth knowledge of allergen standards. Our experience of working with other producers of bakery supplies allowed us to fulfil all those criteria.”
