Delivering successful bespoke hygiene cleaning operation

Axis Cleaning and Support Services has held the Hygiene Support contract at Guenther Bakeries in Heywood since 2013 and at its Banbury site since 2017. Sector Director Mark Ferguson explains what’s involved in the successful delivery of the bespoke hygiene cleaning operation.

Over the two sites, the contract includes full food production plant cleaning, all hygiene related services, silo cleaning, office cleaning and laundry services, with our overall objective to add value, improve standards and rationalise costs and services across the two sites.

Over the years we have introduced several key innovations to improve and increase our productivity levels. A dry ice cleaning process, for example, uses a compressed air system to ensure efficient and safe cleaning of key electrical parts, and is also extremely effective on non-electrical areas – reducing the number of processes required. We effectively utilised this system on cleaning the dust covers and link chains on the final proofer systems, meaning dough can be removed from the link chains easily, efficiently, and without the need for each link to be cleaned by hand.

Enhancing safety and efficiency, we have reduced the use of mobile electronic work platforms (MEWPs) by investing n a ‘SkyVac system’ that enables the cleaning of high and awkward areas from ground level. The product was chosen as it is Atex Rated to Zone 22, mitigating any risk involved with flour creating a combustible environment.

We work in partnership with Guenther, utilising our experience of the stringent cleaning and hygiene requirements of food manufacturing to ensure best practice.

Help us maintain our standards of journalism

Readers enjoy our news site but keeping our news up to date and authoritative, without charging readers to view the site is a challenge. Especially now with the Corona Virus measures affecting us all, as many clients have been severely affected and are naturally reducing their spend on advertisements. Given this lack of revenue stream we are calling on the generosity of our readers to help us fill that void and enable our journalists to continue delivering the news that you enjoy.

Unlike many other news sites, we don't have annoying pop ups or charge scandalous prices for events. We also produce printed magazines for each title and we make these freely available to read on line too, for your enjoyment. Often, people have asked why we don't make a charge for viewers to read these magazines and news stories but we feel that would adversely affect our readership/advertisers response rate. But with advertising revenues now severely affected we need your help. So, if you can support our news sites/magazines with either a small donation of even £1, or a subscription to our magazine, which costs from just £31.50 per year, (inc p&P and mailed direct to your door) your generosity will help us weather the current storm and continue in our quest to deliver quality journalism.

We value your readership and your support, as this enables us to continue to provide our regular daily news updates. We've been established over 30 years, during which we've lost count of the numerous recessions and financial meltdowns, and we intend to weather the storms caused by Covid-19. So, every reader contribution, however big or small, is invaluable in helping us to get through this. Please click here to help support your favourite news site/magazine.
