Cookie and cracker manufacturers face challenging food safety initiatives currently. Accordingly, equipment manufacturers continue to focus on improving the ease of sanitation of their systems.

“Our equipment is designed with the latest sanitary innovations available to the industry,” said Shawn Moye, executive director of sales at Reading Bakery Systems, Robesonia, PA. “We have also simplified our equipment to use open-frame designs, ensuring that all areas of the equipment can be seen and thus sanitized easily.”

To assist processors with sanitation, Reiser, Canton, MA, developed a simple tool cart to store machine parts. “A small advance that results in big time savings,” is how John McIsaac, the company’s vice-president, strategic business development, described it.
