In this post Camfil Segment Leader for Food and Beverage, Jordan Bettencourt, discusses meat processing and corresponding risks during production, as well as the importance of air quality in establishing a hygienic atmosphere.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, commercial building and office managers have increased their focus on improving indoor air quality (IAQ) to prevent the transmission of airborne viruses. While commercial industries are just catching up to speed, air quality has always been a consideration in the meat processing industry and becomes increasingly important. As such, facility managers in meat processing should take care to thoroughly understand possible challenges that can arise, and how they can be detrimental to employees working in meat processing as well as the product thereby affecting the final customers.
What Are the Concerns in Meat Processing?
Meat processing requires high hygiene practices as the improper handling of raw meat can have a number of consequences. Some of the most common concerns in meat processing include:

During production, cross contamination of raw meat is likely to cause this.
What Are Other Benefits to High Quality Air Filtration in Meat Processing?
